This is an excellent review on the various types of prayer and their applications in our life. Prayer is such a powerful force in our spiritual lives as we seek to enhance our relationships with the triune God, family, friends and worldly neighbors. Describing prayers that lead us inward, upward and outward, the author has done an courageous job of warming our hearts through our search for peace.

I haven't finished the book but so far - awesome! This is one of those books to keep in your library for future reference. I had originally borrowed it from a friend but I kept wanting to write little notes in the margins so I had to get it for myself. It is loaded with thought provoking truths and is easy to read and understand. I hightly recommend this book to anyone searching for a good book on prayer. It will not disappoint.

This is my second time purchasing a copy of this book. I often thought that there were many ways and many reasons to pray and this author confirmed it. The book was beautifully written and I did find myself moving toward greater intimacy with God as I read through the chapters. I have recommended this book to many others. Thank you.

Agreeing fully with what the earlier reviewers said, I would also add that book is perhaps one of the most challenging and instructive books when it comes to expanding and empowering one's prayer life. It is an excellent primer for any small group or prayer ministry in the church. When it comes to spiritual formation, you can't go wrong with any work by Richard Foster. I'm not one to award 5 stars lightly; this is a must have for any Christian's library.

There are a myriad of books available today on prayer. Many of those books are shallow theologically and draw little if any from the rich heritage of the Church. Foster's volume combines knowledge of church history's classic devotional writers with freshness appealing to the 21st century.Foster describes various forms of prayer, dividing them into three general categories: inward-focused prayer provides us with personal transformation, upward-focused prayer offers us intimacy with God, outward-focused prayer places us in the ministries that God would have us fill.Don't let the title fool you. This volume is NOT just another book on what some persons may call "prayer lite." Foster presents a solid work that is grounded in the theology as well as the history of the Church. I recommend this book highly to all persons desiring a serious treatment of prayer.

This has been one of my favorite books for a long time. It is the best exploration of prayer that I have ever read. It is a resource book that I keep coming back to again and again as I seek to be a more prayerful person.
