Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat of our relationship with God: prayer. What is prayer? Does it change God's mind or ours or both? This book is an invitation to communicate with God the Father who invites us into an eternal partnership through prayer.

Polls reveal that 90 percent of people pray. Yet prayer, which should be the most nourishing and uplifting time of the believer's day, can also be frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery.

Writing as a fellow pilgrim, bestselling author of What's So Amazing About Grace? Philip Yancey probes such questions as:

  • Is God listening?
  • What should I pray for?
  • If God knows everything, what's the point of prayer?
  • If my prayers go unanswered, is there something wrong with my faith?
  • Why does God sometimes seem close and sometimes seem far away?
  • How can I make prayer more satisfying?
  • In this powerful classic of spiritual insight and investigation, Yancey tackles the tough questions about the mystery of prayer and, in the process, comes up with a fresh new approach to this timeless topic.

    "I have learned to pray as a privilege, not a duty," writes Yancey, and he invites you to join him on this all-important journey.
