Summary: The author talks about what prayer is, why it is so important to Christians, and  explains that prayer doesn’t have to be formal or even lengthy to be powerful. The author gives helpful suggestions on how to incorporate prayer throughout your day. For example, when praying for someone, the author recommends using the acronym “BLESS” to remember to pray for their Body, Labor, Emotional Health, Social Life and Spiritual Growth.

Recommended: Yes.  The author does a good job of explaining how prayer is accessible to anyone at anytime.  The book is full of ideas on how to fit prayer into your busy schedule. Each chapter ends with questions that can be used for discussion or prayer journaling so this book would be a good fit for a group of people to read together.

If You’re Offended: No problems here.

Noteworthy Excerpts: “We can read all kinds of doctrines and information about God, and we can watch a religious ‘expert’ expound on theories about God in a television special. But until we have our own conversations and encounters with the Lord, we don’t really know him.”        “When you think about prayer, is it a duty, a ritual, a responsibility, a burden or a delight? Do you look forward to it or avoid it?”
