    Story
    "Good down-to Earth primer on practice of prayer"
    What did you like best about Prayer? What did you like least?

    What I found most heartening is the practical nature of the discussion. The author acknowledges the 24/7 nature of our lives, complete with distractions of work, family, & avalanche of stimuli (iPod, iPhone, iPad, iNeed, iWant, & iMust) that make it difficult to "show up" & be fully "present" regularly for prayer. The impact of our moods, health, emotional state, & simply being human are not seen as character flaws in growth via the practice of prayer. These things simply....are. No guilt, no shame, in praying when we are ticked-off, feeling guilty, or in a "murderous" fame of mind. Prayer is presented in its fullest dimension letting the reader know that God accepts us. Period. But most of all want us to know He/She walks with us each & every moment, even when we feel forgotten, & how the daily practice of prayer brings us closer to that awareness over time no matter what circumstances we face.


    What aspect of Alan Hirt’s performance would you have changed?

    Bear in mind that this is a not entertainment. The delivery was simple & straight forward as it should be. Mr. Hirt did not speak in a monotone nor an inappropriately upbeat manner. It seems like the standard college lecture experience; however, the topic's depth and spiritual nature was not compromised by the delivery.


    Could you see Prayer being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not entertainment material.
