Publisher's Summary

Is praying a duty or a delight? J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom say that it's both; an essential, expected practice as a follower of Christ, but also a privilege and joy. As we start out learning to pray properly, however, the delight often seems to be missing. Here is practical help for active, honest praying that involves all of who we are - heart, hands and head - and moves us to deeper obedience, joy and intimacy with our Father.

    "Abridged, Heck"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love the book that I have, but I am ill and was hoping to be able to listen to most of it. It is the first two chapters and that is it. Come on.


    Has Praying turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No! Packer is great. audible has turned me off from ordering any more books. Come on!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was just fine.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I want the whole book to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Why charge people for two chapters.

    "Praying"

    This was not what I expected, didn't fulfill my need or increase my understanding of prayer. Didn't like the voice of the reader. Boring, felt lost on what was being read and discussed. Don't believe I will order another audio book. Thought this would be similar to the audio reading of the Bible. Big disappointment. 😒😓Me Anne

    "Short, But Worthy "

    This is my first experience with J. I. Packer, but I found his words both enlightening and thought provoking. His down to earth style and heartfelt words are a balm to those struggling to pray rightly.
