Publisher's Description

Most Christians want to experience spiritual transformation. But many are frustrated by the limited progress of our spiritual self-improvement efforts. We find our praying burdened by a sense of obligation and failure. But prayer is not merely something we do; prayer is what God does in us. Prayer is not just communication with God; it is communion with God. As we open ourselves to him, God does the spiritual work of transformation in us. Spiritual director David Benner invites us to discover openness to God as the essence of prayer, spirituality and the Christian life. Prayer is far more than saying words to God; all of life can be prayer when offered to God in faith and with openness. Using the four movements of lectio divina, Benner explores prayer as attending, pondering, responding and being. Along the way he opens us to a world of possibilities for communion with God: praying with our senses, with imagination, with music and creativity, in contemplation, in service and much more. Learn how prayer can be a way of living your life. Move beyond words to become not merely someone who prays, but someone whose entire life is prayer in union with God.

    D. Benner has once again written a gem of a book on Christian prayer and spirituality. Written from the heart and personal experience, the book avoids technical jargon or excessive verbosity. In a clear and straight forward manner, Benner goes through some of the basic and enduring prayer traditions for Christians truly trying to deepen their prayer life with God. To keep it down to earth the end of each chapter includes practical suggestions to make the advice concrete. This is a book that you can read and re- read for it's insight and inspiration.

    In this book, David Benner reorients us to the purpose, benefits, and freedoms available to us in opening ourselves to God (prayer). As a child naturally gravitates toward play, so do our souls gravitate toward prayer; or would if we set ourselves free from the shoulds, and other false notions about prayer. What a blessed journey into freedom and the presence of God it was for me to read this. It's on my MUST READ, list and I have recommended it to almost a dozen people already.
