"I often shrink from books about prayer, because they usually produce in me feelings of inadequacy. I was delighted to find Tim Jones to be a sympathetic, not intimidating, guide. He writes with humility, clarity, and practicality-exactly the qualities I want in a book on prayer."
-Philip Yancey

Revised and Expanded Edition with Study Guide Included

"Timothy Jones...guides us into a life of prayer not by cramming us with knowledge and technique, but by quietly returning us to simplicity of soul and the presence of God."
-Eugene Peterson

Something within us wants to grow closer to the God who loves to relate to us. But we often hesitate. Even though we have a desire to pray, questions nag us:

Can I pray when I feel distant from God?
Is it okay to ask God for help in "little" things?
What do I do when I don't know what to say?
What sense can I make of seemingly unanswered prayer?
How do I keep growing closer to God?

In The Art of Prayer, Timothy Jones honestly shares his own struggles with prayer and invites you to be honest-and hopeful-as well. Offering biblically wise, warmly instructive explorations of our questions, Jones considers how you can become fluent in the world's simplest language: talking with God.

Includes a full-length inductive Bible study guide on prayer, ideal for small groups or individual readers.
