Publisher's Description

Why is prayer so hard? Many of us have asked that question. We want to pray. We intend to pray. But, as spiritual director and professor MaryKate Morse notes, "We don't pray as consistently or as meaningfully as we might like." And yet prayer offers us such spiritual riches. Prayer
  • draws us to experience love and to be love
  • increases our faith
  • expands our vision of God
  • helps us grow in self-understanding
  • gives us perspective on life and death
Morse continues: "Through prayer, we experience forgiveness, guidance and peace. We are healed physically and emotionally. We experience the mystery of God, see truth and receive spiritual gifts. We receive vision and courage for God's mission. Faith becomes more beautiful, more real." This guidebook is designed to move you from lamenting over prayerlessness to the joy of praying. Whether you are a beginner or a lifetime person of faith, you will find a treasure trove of riches here to guide you into a deeper experience of prayer. Each chapter explores a different angle of prayer with sections focusing on each of the persons of the Trinity—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And each chapter offers specific ways to pray both on your own, with a partner or in a group. Sprinkled throughout are reflections from the author's former students describing on their own experience with these practices. A treasure trove of both resources and encouragement, you will find this book to be an indispensable guide to your life of prayer.

Editorial Reviews

"Noting that faith becomes more beautiful through prayer, Morse offers fresh approaches to talking with God, including a catalog of 24 distinct, field-tested prayer methods."
"MaryKate Morse's A Guidebook to Prayer illuminates proven pathways for walking intimately with God. It will be a great blessing to all who read and engage the prayer practices she describes."
"I find A Guidebook to Prayer helpful not as a manual of 'how tos' but as a guide into the reality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to whom and in whom we pray. MaryKate Morse guides us also into the many creative ways in which we can open ourselves (and listen) in prayer. And she guides us into prayer that deeply explores our hearts and brings us into a transforming relationship with our Creator. I found myself pausing to talk to God in ways she suggests. I hope many will read and be so guided!"
"I recommend this book for those who want to go deeper into the world of prayer as well as those who want to pray but don't know how to pray. Read this book slowly and prayerfully. As you do, you will find yourself falling in love with God."
"This book is both timely and important because, during this current period of prevalent prayerlessness in the western church, Morse teaches us about prayer in a doctrinally rich way and offers us twenty-four practical methods for engaging with God in prayer. The book is an excellent resource for both personal devotions and for leaders of group prayer."
"This book's content is deep and rich; for readers willing to pace their reading, giving time and intention to new possibilities in prayer, blessings await. Highly recommended."

    The best book on prayer is the Bible. That being said, from time to time the Spirit of God inspires individuals to create extra biblical resources on prayer. The purpose of these resources is to assist us in apprehending the practical revelation on prayer that is often elusive. Even though we read the Bible about prayer and the Bible presents the subject matter clearly and thoroughly, still sometimes the actual act of prayer in a daily relevant, meaningful expression is challenging. Add to that the frustration of the feeling that at times our prayers appear to be cumbersome, fruitless and pointless.

    God understands these challenges and others that I have not mentioned. Hence in His mercy, He makes ways for us to connect the vital necessity of prayer from the Bible to our lives by providing us additional support tools to be used along side the Bible. "A Guidebook To Prayer" by MaryKate Morse is one of those support tools. This is one of the best extra biblical books on prayer that I have ever read. Ms. Morse does a masterful job of remaining true to the Bible while simultaneously offering relevant, practical and powerful insights on making prayer the fulfilling, effective and enjoyable reality that God intended it to be in our lives.

    I was so blessed by this book, that I procured it for our church and I am currently using it as my main extra biblical resource along with the Bible to teach on prayer at our church in our Mid-Week Bible Study. Those in our church who are faithful to journey with us through this study are reporting how it is immensely blessing them in developing their personal prayer lives.

    I absolutely, unequivocally recommend this book!!!
