Overview

Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home by Richard J. Foster

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.

Found this book just as my study group was exploring prayer through the Scriptures. Beautiful guidance on how to pray.

It's obvious that the author is very well educated and has spent a great deal of time in prayer, himself. Occasionally the writing seems a bit stiff and rather seminarian, but when I got to chapter 16 and read his thoughts on what we perceive to be unanswered prayer I felt that I'd finally seen his heart. There are many, many highlights in that chapter! It's a book that's worth your time.
