9781568656144: The Art Of Prayer - A Simple Guide

"I often shrink from books about prayer, because they usually produce in me feelings of inadequacy. I was delighted to find Tim Jones to be a sympathetic, not intimidating, guide. He writes with humility, clarity, and practicality-exactly the qualities I want in a book on prayer." -Philip Yancey Revised and Expanded Edition with Study Guide Included "Timothy Jones...guides us into a life of prayer not by cramming us with knowledge and technique, but by quietly returning us to simplicity of soul and the presence of God." -Eugene Peterson Something within us wants to grow closer to the God who loves to relate to us. But we often hesitate. Even though we have a desire to pray, questions nag us: Can I pray when I feel distant from God? Is it okay to ask God for help in "little" things? What do I do when I don't know what to say? What sense can I make of seemingly unanswered prayer? How do I keep growing closer to God? In The Art of Prayer, Timothy Jones honestly shares his own struggles with prayer and invites you to be honest-and hopeful-as well. Offering biblically wise, warmly instructive explorations of our questions, Jones considers how you can become fluent in the world's simplest language: talking with God. Includes a full-length inductive Bible study guide on prayer, ideal for small groups or individual readers. "...wisely human, spiritually practical, and wonderfully interesting." - the late Lewis Smedes, author of My God and I "...luminous prose and...lucid insights." -Publishers Weekly
