|Author||: Pete Greig|
Pete Greig is a worldwide authority and the face of a generation when it comes to prayer. One of the founders of the 24-7 prayer movement, he has seen, experienced, and chronicled amazing works of God in the world. While you might imagine him to be puffed up, Pete Greig is entirely the opposite. He is enchanting, down-to-earth, friendly, and most of all, very normal–and yet he tells preposterous tales about prayer (and they’re true). He is basically a regular dude who loves to talk with God. How to Pray is written to evoke a passion for prayer in everyone—the committed follower of Jesus as well as the skeptic and the scared. The enormous blessing of How to Pray is that it is accessible, full of surprising stories of answered prayer, and tremendously engaging. The basic idea is that prayer is a conversation between you and God. Pete Greig demystifies and reenchants prayer, helping you to find prayer achievable and enjoyable, and ultimately life-giving and life-changing. How to Pray is designed to be used together with The Prayer Course (a free video curriculum associated with the Alpha course), making it useful for personal and group or church-wide reading.

Written a little over a century ago, How to Pray is a wonderful treatise on prayer. The author, Reuben Torrey, effortlessly guides even the most seasoned person of prayer into deeper, more significant prayer. Torrey explains what prayer is, what it can do, and when one should pray. He also describes the hindrances that keep believers from praying effectively, and how with the power of God believers can overcome those hindrances. Filled with a spirit of graciousness, this classic work on prayer has helped generations and can also further one's own spiritual maturation in the "essential activity" of prayer.

From the time Jesus first taught his disciples how to pray to the present day, the Church has pointed out a variety of ways in which a person can fruitfully communicate with God and grow in the spiritual life. Lectio divina, meditation, contemplation, the recitation of the rosary and prayer in action are all covered in these forty brief reflections which encourage us to pray as you can, not as you can't. Taking a quote from the Gospels or a thought from a saintly expert in the art of prayer as a springboard for the suggestions made in these pages the author draws on his own experience as a spiritual director and retreat master to show how the advice given can be put into practice in one's daily life. He concludes with a series of brief prayers with which one can begin and end each day in the presence of God in whose Spirit we are called to pray.

Andrew Wommack uncovers the traditions and misconceptions in prayer that often bring more suffering than good! In finding out how Jesus taught us to pray, we can bring joy back into our relationship with God. Many people, who truly love God with all of their heart, find it difficult to pray as they have been taught. And their once-vibrant relationship with the Lord had become stifled, mechanical, and lifeless. What they don't understand is that prayer is an opportunity to have communion with God-fellowship with the Father. Of course it includes requests because we need help from our Father every day, but it also includes a connection and friendship with God. Readers may find it amazing that God would talk with them just as a friend, but His greatest desire is for His children to know Him in much the same, intimate way as He knows them. After 30 years of ministry, Andrew Wommack has discovered some important things about prayer including what prayer is and what it is not. Readers will uncover the traditions and misconceptions in prayer and discover true and meaningful communion with God through Jesus' example of prayer. More importantly, they'll come to know a new, profound joy and fulfillment in their relationship with God, receiving the answers they need. The subject of prayer has been touched on many times through classic and current authors, but Andrew Wommack brings a fresh approach to prayer by defuncting the common traditions that make prayer laborious and lifeless. In much the same style as Tommy Tenny's The God Chasers and Jim Cymbala's Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire, readers will be thrilled to find a God who desires to talk with them anytime, whenever they are open and willing.Readers will learn to develop vibrant, open communication with the Father all throughout their day.
