First published in 1992, Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home has become a classic on its eponymous subject. Awarded Christianity Today’s Book of the Year Award and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s Gold Medallion Award, Prayer continues to receive widespread acclaim as one of the most thorough and insightful treatments of this central spiritual practice.

Following the structure of his 1.2 million copy-selling Celebration of Discipline, Prayer explores three spiritual “movements” of prayer: inward, upward, and outward. Within each movement he looks at seven different types of prayer, for a total exploration of twenty-one separate forms of prayer.

Coming to prayer is like coming home, Foster says. “Nothing feels more right, more like what we are created to be and to do.” This accessible, rich, and reliable guide shows how each of the various forms of prayer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others.

This is life-changing reading!”

    Eugene H. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Canada, and author of Answering God

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Will Waller | 2/14/2014

    " Amazing. There is a part of me that shudders to think that I respect a compendium like an encyclopedia or a dictionary. While this has a narrative (somewhat) it really is a listing of all the different kinds of prayer that Christians have used throughout the ages and that Foster has participated in. This makes this book a vital resource for anyone in ministry, or who goes to church, or who lives. To know how to pray opens one up to a myriad of interactions with the holy. Prayer never made much sense nor much difference to me until I took a course on prayer. This book was the star of the show. Foster is accessible yet does not utilize elementary language/subject matter. Foster shares from the Scripture, the fathers and mothers of the faith, and from personal experience. This book's great for a beginner or an old expert. And, spoiler alert, you learn how to do exorcism. So, stop reading this and start getting demons out of your siblings. "

    " I honestly haven't finished the book. But like books with case vignettes, this book is chock full of small snippets of deep insights and musings into prayer. Richard Foster is very approachable and speaks directly to some of the challenges and misconceptions I have about prayer. He is challenging, yet really encourages you as the reader to start to see that no matter what life season or issue is going on, God is ALWAYS ready to help you grow to see Him in it through prayer. "

    " Teaches 21 different types of prayer! Was truly a great read and helpful with my prayer life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kathleen | 2/2/2014

    " Helpful...I've been struggling with prayer, what it is, what it's for, how it works with that whole free will thing, and how to do it. This book helps with how to do it. Good for getting myself in the right frame of mind. My favorite may be the fiddler on the roof prayer "
