Publisher's Summary

Everyone prays. 

But no one finds it easy. We all need a little help. 

Pete Greig has been teaching on prayer - and leading a nonstop prayer movement - for 20 years. Now, for the first time, he puts his life's work into a response to the question everybody ultimately asks: how do I pray? 

This down-to-earth introduction to life's greatest adventure will guide you deeper in your relationship with God, helping you to become more centred and still, clearer in discerning God's voice, more able to make sense of your disappointments and more expectant for miraculous breakthroughs too. It's full of honest, hard-won wisdom interspersed with real-life stories - some humorous, others moving - to equip and inspire your prayer life. 

Journeying through the Lord's Prayer, and accompanied by online videos from The Prayer Course, which has been used by more than a million people, it unpacks nine essential aspects of prayer: stillness, adoration, petition, intercession, perseverance, contemplation, listening, confession and spiritual authority.  

From one of today's most visionary communicators, for those who've been praying for years as well as those who want to pray but don't know where to begin, How to Pray is the simple, life-changing guide you've been waiting for.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our Desktop Site.

What a wonderful book!

I have loved listening to this uplifting book. While Pete Grieg offers practical advice and examples, he doesn't avoid some of the challenging and very real issues including unanswered prayer and spiritual warfare. I will be listening to this book again 😊

Great content and practical advice for all Christians and seekers alike.

At the start I was unsure about the book as it seemed a bit basic but after chapter 1 I was hooked. Very helpful guide to prayer for seasoned Christians who need to reignite their prayer life, for newbies and for anyone else who calls them self a Christian.

Great guide for seekers too as Pete explains prayer in good detail and takes the mystic idea out of it and discusses it as our normal activity with God. So a good insight for those questioning and being stirred.

I do like that Pete narrated this himself, it sound very natural and you can hear his passion. It’s as if he has written this for an audiobook. Good call!!

Adding others stories and those who have shown how prayer has changed their life and responses was a great addition also.

Less referrals to the website you mention would be good, or even better have your own related to this book with the additional material and workbooks to help us get on track.

All in all time well spent!!!

Brilliant, Short, Simple, & Direct

There’s no iota of waffle in this book, it goes straight to the point cutting out religious bile & focusing on how you build the most important relationship of your existence.

It’s only recently that I realised that sitting/kneeling to pray in the morning was a recipe for boredom & falling asleep even with the best of intentions. But my mind truly focuses on God like a laser when I take a long walk. When I walk, communication with God becomes very effortless. It’s ideas like this that are discussed in this book....whatever your own weirdness is, God just wants so much to meet with you daily & to be involved in your life.

Entertaining, practical and foundational

This is an excellent book on the topic of prayer with a great range of illustrations, testimonies and heroes of the faith. Pete Greig starts to delve under the surface of prayer a bit but never gets “too theological” instead signposting other authors and keeping the pace moving along. The audio is superb, you can hear Pete’s passion and the prayers interspersed don’t seem like a performance. Finally this book has had an impact on my prayer life - that must be the goal and so I can’t recommend it enough.

Life giving

Peter’s book has inspired me to pray all over again. His simple analogies, rememberable points and passionate invitations to pray have left me hungry to go deeper in prayer and spend time with Jesus all over again. A wonderful read!

Excellent book

Wonderful book about prayer. it details different types of prayers. Exquisitely written and read by Pete the author. I would love to meet Pete one day because this book has opened my mind to prayer. His family personal stories are an eye-opener to different situations we all face in life. May the Almighty God continue to Bless you and your family abundantly. Thank you

super accessible book on learning to pray

Iv always struggled with knowing how to pray. I have always thought I'm awful at it and found myself not really praying all that much because of how bad I thought I was at it. This book has changed that, it has set me of on a whole new journey. I'm now on the road to having a deeper and more fulfilling relationship with the One,, my friend, my father, my God! This book has unlocked a whole new world for me, it says to keep it simple, to keep it real and to keep it up. Truly amazing! could not recommend this more to anyone who believes they struggle with prayer.
