What People are Saying About This

Joshua Choonmin Kang

"I recommend this book for those who want to go deeper into the world of prayer as well as those who want to pray but don't know how to pray. Read this book slowly and prayerfully. As you do, you will find yourself falling in love with God."

Leighton Ford

"I find A Guidebook to Prayer helpful not as a manual of 'how tos' but as a guide into the reality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to whom and in whom we pray. MaryKate Morse guides us also into the many creative ways in which we can open ourselves (and listen) in prayer. And she guides us into prayer that deeply explores our hearts and brings us into a transforming relationship with our Creator. I found myself pausing to talk to God in ways she suggests. I hope many will read and be so guided!"

Ruth Haley Barton

"MaryKate Morse's A Guidebook to Prayer illuminates proven pathways for walking intimately with God. It will be a great blessing to all who read and engage the prayer practices she describes."

Marva J. Dawn

"Certainly everyone who reads this thorough handbook will learn at least one or several new approaches to prayer! . . . This is the most extensive and fruitful compendium I have ever found!"

JR Rozko

"This is the most helpful book on prayer that I have ever read. It is a guidebook on prayer authored by someone whose own life and work are themselves profoundly shaped by the patterns of prayerful communion with God suggested in it. Whether you are looking for a book on prayer to deepen your own walk with God or are leading other people and groups toward a deep and vital spirituality, you will find this book by my friend MaryKate to be one of those rare books that you find off of your shelf more than on it!"
