Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author and renowned pastor Timothy Keller explores the power of prayer.

Christians are taught in their churches and schools that prayer is the most powerful way to experience God. But aside from learning prayers by rote, few receive instruction or guidance in how to make the most of this essential Christian act - how to make prayer genuinely meaningful. In Prayer, renowned pastor Timothy Keller delves into the many facets of this everyday act.

With his trademark insights and energy, Keller offers brilliant and inspirational biblical guidance, as well as specific prayers for certain situations, such as dealing with grief, loss, love, and forgiveness. He discusses ways to make prayers more personal and powerful, and how to establish a practice of prayer that works for each listener.

Dr. Keller's previous books have sold more than one million copies. His Redeemer Presbyterian Church is not only a major presence in his home base of New York, it has also helped to launch more than 250 other churches in 48 cities around the world. His teachings have already helped millions, the majority of whom pray regularly. And with Prayer, he'll show them how to find a deeper connection with God.

Amazing book

At first, I wasn’t sure I liked this book. However, the more I listened to it, the more I liked it and appreciated how great it truly is. The narrator also has a great voice that relaxes me. I’ll definitely be listening to this one numerous times.

Awesome book!

This book is rich with teaching on prayer. If you’re looking for a single, all-encompassing book on prayer, this is the one.

A comprehensive overview and intro to prayer

As a long-time Timothy Keller fan, and having read the book already, this was a great way to hear/review the book!

The performance by Sean Pratt captured the tone and voice of the original author well, very obviously someone who has heard Timothy Keller speak before.

Something I will definitely keep in my library to re-listen in busy seasons coming up as a Christian, as it is a great reminder and overview of the history, culture, and Biblical insight on the topic of prayer.

Recommended for any skeptics and Christians interested on the topic of prayer!

Not crazy about this narrator, but great content!

This narrator has a really inconsistent speech speed, hard to listen to. But the content is one of TK's best books yet!

Great points on prayer.

I will definitely listen to this book again. I've been a Christian for many years and I wanted to learn more about prayer. This books provides good examples of ways we can enrich our prayer time.

New insights

This book really widened my perspectives and understanding about prayer, which has often been a challenging issue for me and my life.
The book is deeply rooted in both the Scriptures and the Christian tradition. With this book Keller has inspired me to see that prayer is more about God and who He IS, rather than my own self-centered needs...

Well worth your time

An excellent book on all the aspects of prayer. Particularly appreciated the inclusion of many other individuals' perspectives on prayer, both historical and current.

Horrible narration

I ended up returning this book, not even able to finish through chapter two because the vocal style of the reader is so bad. He pauses in unlikely and inconsistent places chopping everything up into sentence fragments. I just could’t listen and found my mind wandering again and again. What I heard content wise was great, and I intend to pick up a physical copy of the book so that I can still read and learn from Keller on this topic.

Great study on Prayer!

Combining the perspectives of Augustine, Luther, and Calvin, tempered by his own experience, Keller greatly demystifies Prayer to something we all can and should do.

Boring rendition

The reading was syrupy sweet with no conviction. Wonderful content but it put me to sleep.The force that color puts into his writing was completely absent from the reading.

Thoughts on "prayer"

Well rounded explanation of different understandings of prayer. Thought provoking and very well written. Not a leisurely read but an important one.

Speaks straight to the spirit

If you, like me, had both the feeling that your prayer life needed to become more of a priority but at the same time felt unequipped and unenthusiastic about the way it is portrayed in many churches, this book is a must. The narration is also very fitting for the content, I enjoyed very much the audio version.
