For over two decades Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer, helping Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God. During those years, the world certainly hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, with news of civil war, poverty, broken families and sex-trafficking touching us daily. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. Two truths haven't changed in all these years: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer—prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world—can't happen on the fly. So Bill Hybels once again offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

Author and editor of this brief and common prayerbook, Dr. Lawrence Ventline believes that pastors need to teach what they know and do best, that is, how to pray. Others can manage parishes, he holds. While he learned to be a parochial administrator, Father Ventline savored serving people as a pastor. His prayers within prove his love of God and the people he served. His ties with the inter- and intra-faith community foster inter-religious dialog, and, radiate his and others' lives of prayer. The book is filled with thoughts of thanksgiving, a centerpiece of prayer.
In this re-release of a Gold Medallion award-winner, Dr. David Jeremiah addresses the challenges to prayer that we all face and the answers to prayer we often miss. He gently encourages us to take the first steps toward fostering a rewarding relationship with God. Drawing from his insightful prayer journals, Dr. Jeremiah shares his personal experiences - both blessings and struggles - teaching us how to embark on the most satisfying of trips, the great adventure of prayer.
These six studies on the subject of prayer are drawn from Bill Hybels' Too Busy Not to Pray. The study guide is part of Christian Basics Bible Studies, a 16-title series that is based on material from well-loved Christian classics.
We are all at our best when it counts. But what are we like when no one's looking? That's where character comes in—being consistent even when it doesn't seem to matter. Courage. Discipline. Vision. Endurance. Love. These character qualities are quickly becoming endangered. All too often we hear of marriages falling apart, governments lying, businesses cheating and scandals rocking the church. But with God's guidance and strength, we can maintain character that lasts despite temptations and troubles.
Anyone who is too busy to pray is too busy. No matter who you are, you cannot allow yourself to become too busy to pray.
