Recommends it for: anyone seeking to deepen their relationship with God
Shelves: christian
This is one of the best little books I've ever read. Catherine Marshall writes from a lifetime of experience of prayer and a relationship with God. Her little chapters on different "types" of prayer are peppered with anecdotes from her own and others lives, and her faith, while in some places expressed in a dated manner, is still deep and relevant. a great read for anyone seeking to deepen their walk with God and see His Will in their lives.
It's a simple, quick but powerful read.

a very simple and practical guide to prayers. It is true that prayers should be down to earth.

This is a simple read but has had great influence on how I pray.
I really liked the chapter on the "waiting prayer".
Most interesting. Very good outline of prayer life.
Tiny book filled with stories of answered prayers!
short but insightful all in all it was good.
Good practical book on prayer.
