    " This book makes some good points and utilizes lots of Biblical references. It is a little slow in some places though. "

    " Yes, I am finally finished this book. It is not something to gulp, but to chew on little bits at a time. I have underlined much and it will continue to be a go-to book for me. What I love about Yancey's writings is that he does not pretend to have all the answers. In fact, he candidly admits to many of thee questions and doubts we have, as well as sharing thoughts from letters he has received and from some of the great heroes of the Christian faith. They,too, have their struggles and questions. So what it boils down to for me is this: For some amazing reason, God actually desires a relationship with me, and the way to further that relationship is through communication, i.e. prayer. He outlines for us in the Lord's Prayer how we might pray. But prayer does not have to be an event. or prescribed for a specific time. It can and needs to be a way of living, a state of being. So when I think of you, I pray for you. I bring you before the God who already knows your every need and sorrow, and all I am doing is identifying with God in an acknowledgment of that need. We don't, nor will we ever understand or have all the answers. That is as it should be, for we are not God. Someday He will reveal to us the right side of the tapestry, not the underside which is fraught with knots and tangles and is generally messy. For me, I'm glad it isn't all up to me and that we do have a God to trust, who knows what is best. "

    " A thoughtful and personal examination of Christian prayer. Interwoven with personal anecdotes and real-life accounts, Yancey discusses virtually every aspect of prayer from a biblical perspective. He readily admits he doesn't have all the answers, but through his honest struggles he provides reassurance and insight into an aspect of Christian faith that is often misunderstood. "
