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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Deep thinking, even deeper explanations…[Packer’s] love of history is evident through his many references to C. S. Lewis and church fathers such as Luther and Augustine. The work of reading this book pays off in a much more thorough understanding of prayer, its hindrances and its joys.”

    " I was under the impression that Packer wrote this book, as it turned out her was scarcely there. Apart from a few and far in between instances and a few allusions and anecdotes Packers seems to be absent from the books as a whole, which is really disappointing because I really enjoy his writing.
