How to Pray

Full Product Description

  • For anyone with questions about prayer
  • Pete Greig offers a guide to prayer that is clear and compelling
  • How to Pray shares a passion for, as well as practice of, prayer.

No one is born knowing how to pray. Even Jesus’ disciples, twelve ordinary-Joes who followed his every step and word, still had to ask. But asking how to pray can be intimidating. Strike that. Asking for help in any circumstance is scary. 
And who would you ask anyway? 

Written for normal people, How to Pray is a simple guide to prayer from a man who has seen prayer achieve incredible things. 

For anyone who doesn’t know, Pete Greig has turned to prayer as the basis for everything he does. He is the founder of the 24/7 Prayer movement, a collection of people who made sure that prayer never paused between them all. His prayer work has reached countries all over the world, transforming the lives of clubbers in Ibiza to the destitute in places such as Mexico and Dehli. As far as prayer goes, Pete Greig is the right person to ask. He’s seen it all because he’s done it all. 

There are few people as passionate about prayer. If you have ever met someone who is totally and utterly passionate about something, you’ll know that it can be infectious in their presence. Spend time with someone passionate about books and you’ll come away with a reading list; hang out with someone passionate about sports and you’ll end up understanding the intricacies of the offside rule. Spend time listening to Pete Greig and you’ll soon understand why prayer is so important to him.

Passionate people can’t help but share their passion. For Pete Greig, seeing how much prayer has changed his life has given him a wild enthusiasm for everyone to experience it first-hand. 

Assuming no prior knowledge, this new book is Prayer 101. Either as a refresher or an introduction, How to Pray guides you through prayer with confidence and clarity. No jargon, no nonsense, no difficulty. 

Just a simple guide to prayer in normal, everyday language. 

How to Pray by Pete Greig was published by Hodder & Stoughton in April 2019 and is our 213th best seller. The ISBN for How to Pray is 9781529374926.

Publisher's Description

The new book from Pete Greig, author of GOD ON MUTEand DIRTY GLORY, and one of the founders of global movement 24-7 Prayer - a straightforward, practical guide on how to pray.

Everyone prays.
Nothing matters more.
But no one finds it easy.
We need a little help.

Pete Greig has been teaching on prayer - and leading a non-stop prayer movement - for twenty years. Now, for the first time, he puts his life's work into a response to the question everybody ultimately asks: how do I pray?

This down-to-earth introduction to life's greatest adventure will guide you deeper in your relationship with God, helping you to become more centred and still, clearer in discerning God's voice, more able to make sense of your disappointments and more expectant for miraculous breakthroughs too. It's full of honest, hard-won wisdom interspersed with real-life stories - some humorous, others moving - to equip and inspire your prayer life. Journeying through the Lord's Prayer, and accompanied by online videos from The Prayer Course, which has been used by more than a million people, it unpacks nine essential aspects of prayer: stillness, adoration, petition, intercession, perseverance, contemplation, listening, confession and spiritual authority.

From one of today's most visionary communicators, for those who've been praying for years as well as those who want to pray but don't know where to begin, How to Pray is the simple, life-changing guide you've been waiting for.
