Words with God: Trading Boring, Empty Prayer for Real Connection

About the eBook

For most of us, prayer is a struggle. Do our prayers even matter? What, if anything, happens when we pray? Are we having words with God or just words with ourselves?

We know we should pray. It would be good for us--help us be more grounded, more connected to God. But in our hurried lives, slowing down to pray can feel like a cosmic waste of time.

 In this thoughtful book, bestselling author Addison Bevere takes you into and through the tension of prayer--the struggles, the doubts, the answers--to the place where God makes himself real to you. He tackles questions such as:

· What do we do with unanswered prayers and how do we move through them?

· Why does God invite us to ask through prayer if he is aware of every need?

· Is there a right way to pray? If so, what is it?

· How do we learn to hear the Voice of God?

Tired of boring, empty, transactional prayer? This is the book for you.

"Addison's book takes us through our desires for prayer, our disappointments in prayer, and the profound deeper plan of God for our prayers. This is the book you'll return to again and again."--Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker, lead pastor of National Community Church in Washington, D.C.

"This beautifully written book is honest, intelligent, mysterious, and hope-filled. It's the kind of book about prayer that makes you want to pray."--Annie F. Downs, New York Times bestselling author of That Sounds Fun

"Addison takes us beyond clichés and into the heart of God in a way that is biblical, personal, and deeply satisfying. This will stir fresh hunger for intimate conversations with God."--Jon Tyson, author of Beautiful Resistance, pastor of Church of the City New York www.church.nyc
