A simple yet profound guide to facilitate the instinctively human desire to pray. We pray because we are human, not because we are religious. Something in our nature points beyond itself; something in us searches for and desires personal connection with God. Although communicating with our Creator through prayer is innate, the effective practice of it often feels just beyond our reach. This unique book guides you to pray in deeper and more authentic ways. The short prayers and thought-provoking imagery, interspersed with contemplative reflections and suggested practices, will stir, inform, and encourage you. The simplicity of the prayers and the aesthetic appeal of the images will inspire people in every facet of life, including those with no real religious background at all.
We believe we pray because we are human, not because we are religious. Religious tradition can and often does provide language, shape and space for prayer, but the primal instinct to pray does not emanate from or begin with religion. Instead, something in our nature points beyond itself; something in us searches for and appeals to The Divine. We wrote this book to help you find language, shape and space for the basic, human, spiritual and beautiful need to pray. Yet, as natural as prayer is, the practice of it often seems to take place behind closed doors in exclusive clubs with language and imagery exclusive to that club. We have created a work that provides language and imagery accessible to people from a multitude of religious backgrounds as well as for those with no real religious background at all. - Justin McRoberts has written 40 guided prayers. - Scott Erickson has paired each prayer with beautiful, contemplative imagery. - Each of the book's seven sections is capped by reflections on the practice of prayer and each of those reflections points toward specific, suggested practices.

It's been said that Centering Prayer is like two friends sitting together in silence, just being in each other's presence—completely natural and comfortable. Yet, Centering Prayer is sometimes viewed as too mysterious, too escapist, too hard. At first, it even appeared that way to the author, but events in his life and his further studies about prayer changed his views. Through Muyskens' insightful guidance, you'll explore a method of prayer that goes deeper than verbal conversations with God. This book teaches: silent communion with God a method of being open to the gift of God's presence a way of receiving a deep ad intimate relationship with God Each day's reading has a focal scripture verse and the author's reflection, ending with simple suggestions for contemplative prayer. You'll begin with as few as 5 minutes of Centering Prayer. By following the guidance in this book for 40 days, you will be led to a closer relationship with God. As you progress through the daily scripture and meditative readings in Forty Days to a Closer Walk with God, you'll find greater understanding and fresh awareness of Jesus' promise, "I am with you always."
40 Days is a response to my friend, Andres question about, Who is your God? This book will respond to that question by teaching as Jesus did, in key themes. There are four major themes that will lead the readers heart and mind to a meaningful prayer life via The Lords Prayer, understanding the steps to salvation through the Romans Road Route, walking closer to God and calling him friend through fasting and prayer, and by reading the Biblical prayers of great prophets and kings who modeled how to communicate to God through their prayers and lifestyle. In the words of my first professor, Dr. Gordon Borror, Professor of Worship at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Life for a believer in Christ is Worship/Service-the glory of God is always the issue and prayer is an essential part of worship, as is time in the Word and our continuing Song! Why 40 days? It takes that long to establish a spiritual discipline. Noah was 600 years old when he had to endure 40 days and nights of rain to bring about a positive change, and then we got the rainbow (GE 7,8,9.1-17). Moses was on Mount Sinai for 40 days and nights, neither eating nor drinking, but writing down the words of God and in return received Gods radiance on his face and the 10 Commandments (EX 34.27-29). Goliath, a giant Philistine, shouted threats of death against the army of Israel for 40 days and nights, then David, a young Israelian shepherd boy, killed him with a stone and a sling-shot. David was promoted to live in the kings palace and fight in his army ( I SA 17.8-58). Jesus was led into the desert by the Holy Spirit for 40 days to be tested and tempted by the devil, neither eating nor drinking, and then he was hungry (LK 4.1-13). Jesus was resurrected and returned for 40 days and spoke about the kingdom of God to his disciples. Jesus ascended to heaven and baptized his disciples and church with the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1.1-5). After 40 days of seeking Gods face you will come to know the joy of being in his presence.
