How to Pray: A Simple Guide for Normal People
WHO: Pete Greig, senior pastor of Emmaus Rd church in Guildford, England, an ambassador for the NGO Tearfund and a lecturer at St Melitus Theological Center.
HE SAYS: “This book is an introduction to a vast subject aimed at new Christians and ordinary followers of Jesus who may not have studied theology and don’t consider themselves Jedi prayer warriors but who would still like to grow and go a bit deeper in their relationship with God.”
THE BIG IDEA: To evoke a passion for prayer in everyone.
This book begins with a short section, “How to P.R.A.Y.”, that explains the acronym featured throughout the book: Pause, Rejoice, Ask and Yield. The following sections are named after each word in the acronym, explaining in detail what it means to prayer.
