Description
Don't be afraid to ask. . . . God is nearer than you think. Millions of us pray every day. But that doesn't mean we always feel comfortable doing it. Many of us wish for wise and gentle guidance on how to communicate our needs or express our thanks. We seek answers to the questions that nag at our attempts to approach God. * Can I pray when I feel distant from God? * Is it okay to ask God for help in life's little things? * What do I do when the words won't come? * Can I get mad at God? And how do I pray when I feel that way? * What sense can I make of unanswered prayers? * How do I keep growing closer to God? The answers to such questions, Tim Jones tells us, are ultimately within everyone's reach. With warmth, clarity, and unfailing honesty, this guide shows how prayer can become more a quiet art than a complicated science. It can be as simple as conversing with a caring friend. "Interspersing the wisdom of philosophers and poets with his own honest observations, Timothy Jones gives us a tender treasure chest of practical help, reassurance, and most of all, love. Beautifully written, this book is for everyone who has ever longed to be closer to God." *Joan Wester Anderson "A wisely human, spiritually practical, and wonderfully interesting book about the most important project of my life--a deeper friendship and more effective communication with the Maker of the Universe. If it proves half as helpful to others as it has already been to me, it will have been a splendid gift to us all." *Lewis Smedes Author of Forgive and Forget
