How to Pray
Pete Greig is a respected authority on exactly this kind of praying: simple, honest, straightforward, from the heart. Even when we’re asking God for what we want, we’re giving him what he wants: our hearts. How to Pray will get you started on a lifelong, and life-giving, practice.
-Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker, lead pastor of National Community Church
Pete Greig is a writer and church planter. He cofounded and champions the 24-7 Prayer movement around the world. A pastor at Emmaus Rd in Guildford, England, he has written a number of bestselling books, including Dirty Glory and God on Mute.
Pete Greig is a worldwide authority and the face of a generation when it comes to prayer. One of the founders of the 24-7 prayer movement, he has seen, experienced, and chronicled amazing works of God in the world. While you might imagine him to be puffed up, Pete Greig is entirely the opposite. He is enchanting, down-to-earth, friendly, and most of all, very normal–and yet he tells preposterous tales about prayer (and they’re true). He is basically a regular dude who loves to talk with God.
How to Pray is written to evoke a passion for prayer in everyone-the committed follower of Jesus as well as the skeptic and the scared. The enormous blessing of How to Pray is that it is accessible, full of surprising stories of answered prayer, and tremendously engaging. The basic idea is that prayer is a conversation between you and God. Pete Greig demystifies and reenchants prayer, helping you to find prayer achievable and enjoyable, and ultimately life-giving and life-changing.
How to Pray is designed to be used together with The Prayer Course (a free video curriculum associated with the Alpha course), making it useful for personal and group or church-wide reading.
