About "How to Pray"
HOW TO PRAY is a basic primer on prayer. It will get us started, keep us going and uses every stage of life and its varied events to renew and expand our understanding of being alive to God through prayer. Completely honest about the struggles and difficulties everyone encounters, it will help us discover how natural prayer is, even when we least feel like it. Previously published under the title Praying Through Life this third edition is re-jacketed in the style of Stephen Cottrell's popular Do Nothing... titles. With his characteristic humour and realism, he offers a guide 'from an experienced beginner' for those starting out on the Christian journey and for those who feel there's more to discover. This is, he says, unashamedly, about the shallow end of prayer. Full of stories and examples from the Christian tradition and daily life, simple principles to follow, some prayers to use and helpful insights from spiritual writers through the ages, this is a book to inspire over and over again
