Overview

Prayer can seem like a formidable challenge. Even if we find the time to pray in our busy lives, knowing what to say, or how to say it, can be daunting, and even make us feel inadequate before God.

In this concise book, John Davey introduces prayer not with abstract theory but with actual prayers and scripture that can be used everyday.

This gentle introduction to praying starts with the Lord’s Prayer, then guides us through the first steps of prayer, before building on that with a simple structure of morning, evening and night prayer. New concepts are introduced gently, chapter by chapter.

This book will be a welcome companion for anyone who is new to faith, or struggling with their prayer life.

About the Author

During his City days as a junior executive, John Davey became a Special Constable attached to Bow Street Police Station.

Having felt a calling since his early teens, the priesthood beckoned, and in 1966 he started training at theological college. As part of his pastoral training, John made regular visits to Ford Open Prison, and, as a curate in Eastbourne, trained as a voluntary probation officer. His final full-time ministerial post was as Chaplain and Director of Studies at the National Police Staff College, Bramshill, a training establishment for senior police officers.

During forty years of full-time ministry, John has served as a pastor and mentor to people from all walks of life, and was, for a time, Chaplain and Minor Canon of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

John is now retired and lives with his wife Mary in Nottingham.
