In the ten years since its publication, Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home has helped hundreds of thousands of seekers discover a richer prayer life.

Widely considered the best modern work on Christian prayer, this life-changing book explores the three "movements" of this central spiritual practice, offering a sensitive, warm, and compelling primer that helps us understand, experience, and follow its many forms—from the simple prayer of beginning again to unceasing prayer. Foster clarifies the prayer process, answers common misconceptions, and shows the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, and rest.

This accessible, rich, and reliable guide shows how each of the various forms of payer can move us inward into personal transformation, upward toward intimacy with God, and outward to minister to others. Prayer: Finding the Heart's True Home has won numerous honors including Christianity Today's Book of the Year and the Evangelical Christian Publishers' Association Gold Medallion Award.

Quotes & Awards

  • “I am hard-pressed to express the impact of this timeless classic on my life. Richard Foster’s book is invaluable.”

    Brennan Manning, author of The Wisdom of Tenderness

  • “Once again, in penetrating deep, Richard Foster has shown the way for others to enter and experience prayer at a profound heart-level—not just a place of emotion and sentiment, but a focus point where the human spirit is transformed and enjoys a new oneness with God. This is life-changing reading!”

    Eugene H. Peterson, professor emeritus of spiritual theology, Regent College, Canada, and author of Answering God

  • “A rare gift…informed by ancient wisdom, accessible to contemporary readers, and practical in the best sense of the word.…It is both a guide to prayer and an answer to one.”

    John Ortberg, author of If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat

  • “This wonderful book about prayer could only come from a person whom God has made powerful through prayer. It is a great gift. It taught me and encouraged me to accept God’s invitation to me, too, to walk with him upon the path of prayer.”

    Lewis B. Smedes, author of Forgive and Forget

  • “Richard Foster distills what saints through the ages have learned about prayer and offers it to people like me, whose prayer life is often dry and shallow. Thus, this book has helped me immensely in my struggles for spiritual vitality and depth.”

    Tony Campolo, professor of sociology, Eastern University

  • “Richard Foster’s work on prayer is a wonderful paradox. He at once takes the mystery out of prayer and returns it to the ordinary rhythms of life and returns mystery to prayer by returning the ordinary to the realm of the supernatural. Thanks.”

    Robert Webber, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Christina | 2/15/2014

    " If you're looking for a deeper prayer life, this may be the book for you. I began reading Prayer along with a group of women as part of an online book club, and had no clue what I was getting into. I have to be honest, there were chapters that were intimidating and difficult to get through; there were also those chapters that I will likely re-read in the future. There is a ton of good stuff in this book. I spent a good amount of time highlighting sections and re-reading them. The main "take away" point for me is that we, as imperfect and sinful as we are, get to have this amazing relationship with our Heavenly Father, if we choose to go there. In addition, the act of praying has purpose. Prayer is a well-written guide for those desiring to get closer and go deeper in this relationship with Him. "

    " an excellent review of prayer. a good primer for spring-boarding to the church fathers "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Marilyn Watson | 2/15/2014

    " The original edition was amazing enough to read the 20th Anniversary Edition. I would take the time to read any of Richard Foster's books on Prayer or Spiritual Formation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Steve | 2/7/2014

    " One of the best books I've read on the Christian life. An extraordinarily wise book. More surprising though was the fact that this book on prayer (an area in which I am so aware of my shortcomings) is not so much "convicting" or "challenging" as it is comforting and encouraging. "
