Prayers are an intimate conversation coming from a deep desire to communicate with God. But too many of us are locked into a one-dimensional model of prayer. How do you pray with your whole heart if you are still relying on the prayers of early childhood that begin "Now I lay me down to sleep," or the official, formally-structured prayers of institutional religion? Simple, practical, focussed on real life and completely honest, Prayer examines our deep inner need to pray. Along the way, Harpur shares his own experiences from his spiritual journey, and gives readers his most personal work to date.
