‘Prayer is a love relationship with God.’ Here is a comprehensive, profound and immediately accessible book which opens the way for all to increase their understanding and develop their practice of prayer. Richard Foster explores the many facets of prayer, from the ordinary to the extraordinary, describing it as an inward journey of change, an upward journey to intimacy with God, and an outward one into ministry. He draws on the riches of the great classics of prayer throughout history as well as his own personal experience and roots his material in Scripture. No one who reads PRAYER will remain unmoved. All will find encouragement in its pages. The mystery of prayer will become a source of wonder; the possibility of a profound experience of prayer will come within reach. Richard J Foster, author of CELEBRATION OF DISCIPLINE has founded RENOVARE, an organisation which works for the renewal of the church in all her multi-faceted expressions.
