Brooding. Praising. Asking. Complaining. Hanging on.
These are some of the moods of prayer that J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom explore with wisdom and sincerity. They describe their book as "a heart-to-heart affair, in which two Christians who try to pray and wish they prayed better share thoughts about what they are doing with people whom they envisage as being like themselves.... Our aim is not just to clarify Christian understanding but to foster Christian living. In real praying, head, heart and hands go together."

In Praying the authors offer hope for those of us who daydream when we try to listen to God and stumble when we try to speak. Yet they don't just teach us about prayer; they challenge and inspire us to do it by pointing us to a clearer realization of the reality of God and his character. Let Packer and Nystrom come alongside you to encourage and guide your active praying to our powerful God, and let him move your praying through mere duty to delight.
