9780310328889: Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?

In his most powerful book since What's So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew, Philip Yancey explores the intimate place where God and humans meet in Prayer. Polls reveal that 90 percent of people pray. Yet prayer, which should be the most nourishing and uplifting time of the believer's day, can also be frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Writing as a fellow pilgrim, Yancey probes such questions as: *Is God listening? *Why should God care about me? *If God knows everything, what's the point of prayer? *Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent? *Why does God sometimes seem close and sometimes seem far away? *How can I make prayer more satisfying? Yancey tackles the tough questions and in the process comes up with a fresh new approach to this timeless topic. 'I have learned to pray as a privilege, not a duty,' he says, and he invites you to join him on this all-important journey.

From the Back Cover:

In his most powerful book since What’s So Amazing About Grace? and The
Jesus I Never Knew, Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat—the most
fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect—of our
relationship with God: prayer. What is prayer? How does it work? And more
importantly, does it work? In theory, prayer is the essential human act, a priceless point of contact between us and the God of the universe. In practice, prayer is often frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? is an exploration of the mysterious intersection where God and humans meet and relate. Writing as a fellow pilgrim, Yancey explores such questions as:

•Is God listening?
•Why should God care about me?
•If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer?
•Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent and capricious?
•Why does God seem sometimes close and sometimes far away?
•How can I make prayer more satisfying?

“I have found that the most important purpose of prayer may be to let ourselves be loved by God,” says Yancey. Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? encourages us to pray to God the Father who sees what lies ahead of us, knows what lies within us, and who invites us into an eternal partnership—through prayer. Also available: unabridged audio CD.
