Most of us have trouble finding time to pray. There's church and school and neighborhood and job and friends and recreation. And then the crises hit! Time for prayer seems an impossible luxury. As a pastor, Bill Hybels knows hundreds of people with schedules like this. Yet in his own life he has made the hard discovery that prayer doesn't happen on the run. He decided he was too busy not to pray. Hybels's accessible introduction to prayer has already helped over 400,000 readers develop a rich and regular prayer life in the midst of life's busyness. Now, in this revised and expanded 10th anniversary edition, he includes new insights from his years of ministry and his own spiritual journey. He shows how to slow down to pray, listen to God, respond to what we hear, practice the presence of God and overcome prayer barriers. His fun and practical book offers the resources we need for growing, ongoing experiences in prayer.

Robertson DeanÕs effortless narration, with its impeccable delivery and timing, makes the authorsÕ work on how to experience a powerful prayer life easy to understand. With thoughtful pacing, Dean delivers their suggestion to set aside 15 minutes each day, divided into 3 five-minute segments. In describing GodÕs nature as loving and emphasizing the importance of praise, Dean maintains energy and consistency. The authors recommend journaling for those who have difficulty with focus, suggesting that one begin with the word ÒyesterdayÓ and confine journaling to one page before writing out a page of prayer requests, followed by five minutes of listening to God. This powerful, practical treatment on prayer is a classic of our time. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
