Overview

For the past twenty years Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer, helping Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God.

During those years, the world certainly hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, with news of civil war, poverty, broken families and sex-trafficking touching us daily. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray.

Two truths haven't changed in twenty years: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer—prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world—can't happen on the fly. So Bill Hybels once again offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

    Great book to improve your prayer life

    This book is great. I know I should have a better prayer life in order to get intimate with God but do not know how. This book discussed about the different factors that lead to a prayerlessness. It also offers the different tools and techniques that would lead to a prayerful life. I also feel that it speaks to my heart when it quoted the examples about how people feel about their prayer life. I found this book very helpful.

    I would definitely recommend this book.

    I lead a fast-paced life, and at times you just feel run-down. This book helped me get back on track in my prayer life and I really liked the author's style. He portrays God as He should be portrayed- as our loving, caring Father. The tips were practical, and the content was applicable.
