Publishers Description A trustworthy guide to an intimate and refreshing relationship with God Award-winning author Walter Wangerin Jr. gracefully explores the dynamics of prayer--of speaking, of listening, of waiting, and of hearing God s voice. With luminous prose, he surveys the landscape of communication with God--what prayer feels like, looks like, and sounds like. He points out that whole prayer is a circle, closed and complete. We pour out our hearts and minds to God, who listens as we do. Then we listen intently for his voice when he speaks. Wangerin encourages readers not to eliminate any part of the circle so we don t cut the conversation short."

Intriguing book on prayer Jul 10, 2009
I purchased this book knowing nothing about the author, but because the title intrigued me. It has challenged me in my walk with God to devote more time to the act of prayer. Especially helpful/educational was the first part of the book where you are encouraged to LISTEN to God when you pray, not just simply rattle off a list of requests. The focus of the book is to challenge the reader to know God through prayer, and to develop that relationship through prayer. It has done that to me, and I would encourage others to read, think, and do the same.
Amazing!!! Sep 24, 1999
Everything in Whole Prayer made so much sense. Only a month after I've read it, I find myself advising my friends in their prayer lives using Wally's words. Prayer is communication between us and God, it is not just asking God for something and expecting him to fulfill our wishes. I originally checked Whole Prayer out of the library, I can't wait to buy it and read it again.
I think my favorite part was being able to "see" what Wally was describing in the first chapter about Alaska. His descriptive style amazes me. I felt as if I was experiencing Alaska for the first time along with him and Thanne.
