This book is a simple message about prayer, which Doug says is, \"Perplexing-you will never understand prayer. It is not something you master. You don't get 'better at it.' Talking to God should be as easy as chatting with a trusted friend, and as difficult as expressing the unutterable before a feared and dreaded Monarch. It should be transformative-altering our character, purifying us by our consistent encounters with a holy God. It should develop determination and resolve, strengthen faith, and deepen dedication, assuring our confidence in Biblical certainties. It should stretch our perspective, enlarge us, and change the view we have both of ourselves and our world. It should expose us to God's intervening hand. Prayer dances with the power of God.\"
