Item description for Praying: Finding Our Way Through Duty to Delight by J. I. Packer, Carolyn Nystrom & Rob Lamont...
Overview Is praying a duty or a delight?J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom say that it's both; an essential, expected practice as a follower of Christ, but also a privilege and joy. As we start out learning to pray properly, however, the delight often seems to be missing. Here is practical help for active, honest praying that involves all of who we are--heart, hands and head--and moves us to deeper obedience, joy and intimacy with our Father.

a book on praying that has actually made a difference! Jan 28, 2008
I have begun, and rarely finished, many books on the subject of prayer. This book (which I have not only completed, but am re-reading) by Packer and Nystrom has actually helped me improve my prayer life. I find that the groundwork they lay (to Whom we are praying), and their following discourses on the different types of prayer have allowed me more freedom of expression when speaking to God. I am not a theologian and have not had much difficulty with understanding the concepts presented. However, I do believe that this book is best read slowly, and reread again and again; the misconceptions and bad habits that we have adopted concerning prayer are not easily overcome.
Not easy to read Dec 14, 2007
Although this book is biblically sound, it was very difficult to read especially for the average lay person. The writer jumps from thought to thought and uses very theological wording which made it very difficult to discern what exactly the point was.
"Written to make you think and consider why we speak to God" Sep 5, 2006
One cannot help appreciating the seriousness with which the authors address our need to pray. The material presented is not so much new material (it's prayer, you know) as it is material arranged in a manner to make you THINK.
Although I prefer "God, Help Me Pray" (because of the format) this book will appeal to those who see prayer as more of a science than an art. But make no mistake, you will pick up some interesting tidbits if you're willing to read and study this book carefully.
