Christians are taught that prayer is the main way to experience God. But aside from learning prayers by rote, few receive guidance in how to make the most of this essential Christian act. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller shows us how to make prayer genuinely meaningful.

With his trademark insight and energy, Keller offers brilliant and inspirational biblical guidance, as well as prayers for specific situations, such as dealing with grief, love, and forgiveness.

Using great model prayers from the Bible and great Christian teachers throughout history, he discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each reader.

Is there any possible way we can benefit from yet another book on the subject of prayer? Tim Keller’s Prayer answers with a decisive yes... He has written a winsome, well-rounded book that leads through theory and into practice. It is one of the strongest books on prayer I have ever read and it receives my highest recommendation.

For Keller, prayer is about both awe and intimacy; it is both a conversation and an encounter with God. By looking at prayers in the Bible and in the Christian tradition, Keller finds that conversation and encounter are important not only as a way to understand God, but also to discover one’s self.

Unique, fresh, and deeply rooted in history — this book is vintage Keller... In part, it’s a celebration of the rich tradition of prayer enjoyed by our forefathers. But its greatest strength is the use of Scripture to frame the prayer life.
