The bestselling and beloved classic on prayer. A Christianity Today Book of the Year and winner of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Book Award.

"The truth of the matter is, we all come to prayer with a tangled mass of motives - altruistic and selfish, merciful and hateful, loving and bitter. Frankly, this side of eternity we will never unravel the good from the bad, the pure from the impure. But what I have come to see is that God is big enough to receive us with all our mixture. We do not have to be bright, or pure, or filled with faith, or anything. That is what grace means, and not only are we saved by grace, we live by it as well. And we pray by it." - Richard J. Foster, from Prayer.

Widely considered the best modern work ever written on Christian prayer, this life-changing book explores the three spiritual 'movements' of prayer, offering a sensitive, war, and compelling primer that helps us understand, experience, and practice the many forms of prayer. Foster defines the prayer process, clears up common misconceptions, and show the way into prayers of contemplation, healing, blessing, forgiveness, rest, and more.

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 book is a rare gift - informed by ancient wisdom, accessible to contemporary readers, and practical in the best sense of the word. For many readers ( including me) 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.

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! - Luci Shaw, author of God in the Dark.

For many years, Richard Foster's Prayer has been a welcome shaft of light, illuminating the murky misapprehensions and shadowy misconceptions rife in our culture that bedevil so many a person's attempt at prayer. A master teaching on the master subject. - Eugene H. Peterson, author of The Message.
