Product Description

Prayer seems like it should be so simple. Yet when it comes to actually praying, it often feels awkward and complicated. To make matters worse, we've heard about prayer for so long that we feel strange even asking about it. It's like having to ask a person's name after knowing them for years. We're embarassed to ask because we really should know by now.

The truth is, prayer is simple. It's like talking; talking with a good friend. Here's the best part: No matter where we are in life, God can't wait to talk with us.

Editorial Reviews

"Do you ever feel inadequate to be used by God? Insecure? Unsure of yourself? If so, Adam’s new book Talking with God will build your faith in the power of God. If you want to strengthen your daily prayer life, grab this book!"
—Craig Groeschel, pastor of Life.Church and author of Divine Direction

"Adam is a friend and a great leader who loves Jesus. I mean loves Jesus with everything in him. Seeing Adam’s faith and relationship with Jesus expressed in a book on simple prayer, has me all in! I’ll be giving a copy to everyone on my team at Catalyst because I think it’s that important to read!"
—Tyler Reagin, executive director of CATALYST

"I love this book because I love the author! Adam is so easy to talk with and in the pages you are about to turn, he'll help you realize that talking with God is easy too. Accessible. Practical. Biblical. This is a must-read!"
—Jon Weece, author of Me Too

"We cannot thrive without the depth and intimacy of prayer that Adam describes in a beautifully simplistic way. Talking with God is both refreshing and insightful. This is a book we all need to read."
—Jarrid Wilson, pastor and author of Love Is Oxygen

"It’s been said that ’prayer is to the soul what breathing is to the body.’ If that’s true, most of us are spiritually asthmatic. In this delightful book, Adam Weber offers a bit of spiritual ’respiratory therapy.’ Talking with God is disarming, helpful, and inspiring. It will leave you wanting to pursue a deeper and more regular prayer life."
—Adam Hamilton, pastor and author of Creed

"Prayer has always been a place of connection for me but also a place of some confusion, if I’m honest. Adam does an incredible job of walking us through what it means to have a conversation with God, to talk and to listen, and to embrace the mystery that comes with it."
—Annie F. Downs, author of Let’s All Be Brave

"Talking with God is a book on prayer for prodigals and the imperfect. Adam speaks on prayer not as someone who has it all figured out but rather as someone who’s on the journey. He reminds us that regardless of who we are or where we’ve been, we can talk with God.
—Mike Foster, author of People of the Second Chance

"This book on prayer will be an answer to prayer for many. Adam is a guy who loves people and loves helping them navigate difficulties and messes of life to connect to what really matters. We’ve overcomplicated communicating with the God who made us and loves us. This book is a gust of encouragement that will reconnect you to what really matters in this life. It’s been a gift to me, and I hope this book finds its way into the hands of anyone else looking for a true lift."
—Brad Montague, creator of Kid President

"I’ve known Adam for years. He understands that in order to truly make a difference in this life, he, along with you and I need to be in constant conversation with Jesus, the One who is able to change everything. This is a book on prayer for those who intend to change the world but are aware they can’t do it on their own."
—Brad Lomenick, author of H3 Leadership and The Catalyst Leader

"Adam is a dear friend. We often make prayer too complicated. The emphasis on honesty and brevity is great. Every follower of Jesus should read this book!"
—Roger Fredrikson, pastor and author of Learning to Dance

"If you’ve ever struggled with prayer and wondered what to say, Adam Weber provides an easy-to-read, accessible guide. He takes you by the hand and leads you to the Father with gentleness and encouragement every step of the way."
—Margaret Feinberg, author of Fight Back with Joy

"I laughed. I cried. I read it out loud to my wife. In Talking with God Adam Weber does the seemingly impossible: he makes the topic of prayer fun, approachable, and imaginative! Talking with God will not just encourage your prayer life, it will kindle the fires of intimacy with God."
—Dr. Timothy D. Willard, author of Veneer and Home Behind the Sun

"Adam is currently the pastor of one of the fastest growing churches in the country, yet he is quick to share that he is a work in progress. His success as a spiritual leader is due to his humility and authenticity born of his own prayer life. What a joy to know that at any point and time we can talk with God!"
—Bishop Bruce R. Ough, The United Methodist Church

"I promise, if you read this book and put the words into practice, your life will change, your work will change, your conversations will change."
—Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Plywood People and author of More or Less

"Talking with God is not only a phenomenal book, it’s an important book. In a world that is making a lot of noise, Talking with God presents an encouraging, challenging guide to turning that volume down and conversing with our Creator. I don’t know where I’d be without Adam Weber, but I know I’d be further from Jesus. This is a MUST read."
—Luke Lezon from @HoodJesusYo

"This is a book on prayer for the person who has heard it all or possibly nothing at all and simply wants their prayer life to grow."
—Lisa Whittle, author of I Want God and {w}hole

"Adam delivers to us a practical guide to conversations with God. And when I say practical, I mean that I have NEVER felt like I’ve had a handle on a consistent prayer life. Through this book Adam has helped me take a major step toward just that. Consistency in prayer."
—Carlos Whittaker, author of Moment Maker

    Learn How To Talk With God Instead Of Talking To Him - By Keeping It Short, Simple, And Honest

    Talking With God: What To Say When You Don't Know How To Pray by Adam Weber is a book on prayer for "the rest of us" - those of us who struggle with what to say when it's just us and God; when we're not reading out of some pre-written prayer book or copying the person standing across from us.

    Adam starts with the notion that talkingto God is different from talking with God, and that most of us have learned a scripted way to talk to God but find ourselves lacking when it comes to having a heartfelt conversation with God. He uses a combination of personal and Scriptural examples to guide us on a journey to learn a few key points about the God we talk with; things most of us probably haven't given much thought. Then Adam discusses the way we pray - and the way we should pray. His keywords here are Short, Simple, and Honest. God says we should come to him like children, so Adam uses plenty of examples from the lives of his four children.

    Adam then gives us moving stories of personal struggles and real-life examples of how to pray when life hits its many bumps, including storms, discouragement, being stuck, exhaustion, need of an anchor, seeking God, and extending grace. The Field Notes (footnotes) at the back of the book add Adam's personal wit and humor to this read, reminding you to lighten up and enjoy life while seeking God.

    So how exactly does Adam propose that we talk with God? By keeping it short, simple, and honest. And by realizing that you've already been talking with God your entire life - even if you weren't yet a Christian. When the Bible says to pray "unceasingly", it means exactly that. Everything we say and do becomes an opportunity to converse with God. Talking With God will help show you how. 5/5 stars.

    This book gives you ways to start talking with God. It is an honest and heartfelt written book that allows you to find your own way to talk with God, yet guides you through any fear you may have. Love this book! It allows you to talk to him every day without worrying about what to say.

    Adam has a way of reaching you wherever you are in your journey of being/becoming a Christian. This book doesn't read like a typical novel - more like a conversation that you'd have at the kitchen table with a friend. It has challenged me to be more aware of opportunities to pray, as well as looking for opportunities to spread grace. One of my favorite parts was referring to the "field notes" as it gives you details that connect the dots, and introduces even more humor :)
