Slow down to be with God.

Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

For the past twenty years Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer, helping Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God.

During those years, the world certainly hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, with news of civil war, poverty, broken families and sex-trafficking touching us daily. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. Two truths haven't changed in twenty years: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer--prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world--can't happen on the fly. So Bill Hybels once again offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

From AudioFile:

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
