A trustworthy guide to an intimate and refreshing relationship with God Award-winning author Walter Wangerin Jr. gracefully explores the dynamics of prayer--of speaking, of listening, of waiting, and of hearing God’s voice. With luminous prose, he surveys the landscape of communication with God--what prayer feels like, looks like, and sounds like. He points out that whole prayer is a circle, closed and complete. We pour out our hearts and minds to God, who listens as we do. Then we listen intently for his voice when he speaks. Wangerin encourages readers not to eliminate any part of the circle so we don’t cut the conversation short.

Prayer was meant to be as natural as breathing--our response to need, frustration, joy, and all the events and encounters of our lives. But many of us feel our prayer life is a mere shadow of the wholeness and fullness we were meant to experience. Perhaps it's because we don't understand that prayer is about talking with God, not just to him. Not just sharing our hearts with him, but listening as he opens his heart to us. Award-winning author Walter Wangerin gracefully explores the dynamics of prayer, of speaking, of listening, of waiting, of hearing God's voice. Whole Prayer helps us reach toward God and learn to receive from God, knowing that we are held and encircled by the presence of a loving Heavenly Father.From the Author:
