Publisher Comments:

Best-selling author Richard J. Foster offers a warm, compelling, and sensitive primer on prayer, helping us to understand, experience, and practice it in its many forms-from the simple prayer of beginning again to unceasing prayer. He clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest.

Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. "Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do. Yet at the same time we are confronted with great mysteries. Who hasn't struggled with the puzzle of unanswered prayer? Who hasn't wondered how a finite person can commune with the infinite Creator of the universe? Who hasn't questioned whether prayer isn't merely psychological manipulation after all? We do our best, of course, to answer these knotty questions but when all is said and done, there is a sense in which these mysteries remain unanswered and unanswerable . . . At such times we must learn to become comfortable with the mystery."

Foster shows how prayer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others. He leads us beyond questions to a deeper understanding and practice of prayer, bringing us closer to God, to ourselves, and to our community.

Synopsis:

First published in 1992, Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home has become a classic on its eponymous subject. Awarded Christianity Today's Book of the Year award and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association's Gold Medallion award, Prayer continues to receive widespread acclaim as one of the most thorough and insightful treatments of this central spiritual practice.Following the structure of his 1.2 million copy-selling Celebration of Discipline, Prayer explores three spiritual 'movements' of prayer: inward, upward, and outward. Within each movement he looks at seven different types of prayer, for a total exploration of twenty-one separate forms of prayer.Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. 'Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do.' This accessible, rich, and reliable guide shows how each of the various forms of prayer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others.

Synopsis:

A revered spiritual leader and the author of Celebration of Discipline takes readers on a journey through many different kinds of Christian prayer--from the simple prayer of beginning again to the unceasing prayer of the mystics. Foster leads readers to a deeper understanding and practice of prayer that brings us closer to ourselves, to God, and to our community.
