Prayer for Beginners


"Don’t be put off by the title! This book is not just for beginners, but anyone who would like to grow in prayer. He covers all the bases, such as reasons to pray, methods, the power of vocal prayer, the “Jesus Prayer”, as well as difficulties in prayer. Relying on the eternal wisdom of the saints and holy spiritual writers, Kreeft will motivate you to pray!" - Christina Smith


Peter Kreeft brings his unique insights to this most important area of our spiritual lives. He claims he himself is still a beginner in prayer, and this book is for all those, like him, who feel that they are not good at praying but desire to become much better at it. Thus, Kreeft offers simple, but profound advice and practical steps for developing a prayer life based on the time-tested wisdom of the saints and great spiritual writers, especially the principles found in Brother Lawrence's classic, The Practice of the Presence of God. In short, straight-forward and unsentimental chapters, Kreeft covers all the key areas for understanding and developing that intimate form of communication with our Creator that we call prayer. He covers such areas as the necessity of prayer, various motives and methods, steps, patience, suffering, sin, faith, and grace.
