Great study guide Mar 21, 2007
Bought this book for myself and my two sisters. Now, i'm leading a Sunday morning book study at my church and have 15 other people reading it. This book is a great read for all of us who just need to "slow down" and incorporate daily prayer into our lives.

Too Busy Not to Pray Feb 20, 2007
This is one of the best books I have ever read on prayer. It is excellent for small groups and has questions to be used following each chapter. There are prayer journels that can also be purchased and used by participants with additional reflections, questions and study.
Helpful Insight from Too Busy Not to Pray Jan 19, 2007
This book is easily understood by people new to Christianity but also offers both helpful insight and hints for those at any level in their Christian walk. What I have found to be particularly beneficial has been the ACTS method of praying (Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication). I have found that the pattern helps me to focus.
