A practical guide to praying continuously! Helping you make constant communication with God a natural part of your life rather than something on your daily spiritual checklist, the Harneys encourage you to open your eyes to the Lord's presence, your ears to hear his voice, and your heart to experience his freedom and power. 256 pages, softcover from Baker.
Often we view prayer as an activity reserved for a certain time, in a certain place, offered in a specific way. But Scripture encourages us to pray continually. This exhortation is an opportunity for prayer to permeate every aspect of our lives--when we're alone or in a crowd, when it's quiet and when it's chaotic, when we feel like it and when we don't.
Praying with Eyes Wide Open shows us how to make continuous prayer a natural part of our lives rather than something on our daily spiritual checklist. It helps us encounter God in new ways as we learn to
- open our eyes to see his presence and the world around us
- open our ears to hear his voice
- open our hearts to experience freedom and power as we pray
- and open our lives as we pray for and with others
Anyone desiring a richer, more transformative prayer life will welcome this fresh take on conversing with our Creator.
