In this book, David Benner reorients us to the purpose, benefits, and freedoms available to us in opening ourselves to God (prayer). As a child naturally gravitates toward play, so do our souls gravitate toward prayer; or would if we set ourselves free from the shoulds, and other false notions about prayer. What a blessed journey into freedom and the presence of God it was for me to read this. It's on my MUST READ, list and I have recommended it to almost a dozen people already.
