August 13 ·. Isaac William Nicholson. August 13 ·. I’ve never heard of these last two high profile guys who left the faith. I respect their doubts. the fact that the majority of my pastor colleagues with whom I graduated seminary are no longer in the pastorate or even the church. But, no, it doesn’t shake my faith. Not to sound sickeningly spiritual, I don’t look to them for confirmation of my relationship with God through Christ.

This is an outstanding book. I have both used the book for my own benefit and to assist other people in their prayer lives. People with ADHD will profit from reading it. However, the creative ways to pray will stimulate the prayer life of anyone who desires to have a deeper contact with God. I highly recommend this book.

God makes us all different. Some folks can spend hours focusing and praying with no trouble at all, Some of us have a little trouble focusing for long periods of time. Good to know God knows that and loves us as we are and as He made us. It's OK .

Let me start by saying I know Bill as a friend and ministry colleague, twitter follower and blog reader. I have read alot of his other material that is really awesome and clearly Christ centered.

He is committed to following Jesus and helping churches in their growth and impact. Even with the not so good theological comments below, I think this book is still good to learn from, and no way want to detract from his other books.

The Good:
Introduction to many different styles of prayer, using motions, symbols, and physical actions. Good stuff. Lots of practical and implementable tips that one could use.

I too suffer from being unable to be still for a long time and find that some of the practices mentioned in this text are quite useful to help me center.

His treatment of casting prayers, beads, and prayer walking are all immediately useful to a person like myself who fidgets and moves constantly.

The Not so Good:
Reading this text seemed to border on generic spirituality, no matter what form of religion you practice. Many times, God was called "the Divine." We were encouraged to use readings from "a sacred text."

A few scriptures from the Christian Bible were scattered throughout, and the occasional mention of Jesus, but I felt like I was reading a book about prayer that could be used in any faith, not explicitly Christian prayer.

He admits that some of the practices described in this book may not be orthodox, and some are even disputed by sectors of the Christian such as the labyrinth and body memory.

As I was looking for a book specifically on Christian prayer, this book didn't meet that expectation. It's spirituality was too generic for me.

All in all, this book can be useful if one is looking to learn how to pray if you can't sit still. But if you are looking for a book on Christian prayer, this one may feel like it falls short.

I am a Spiritual Director and use this book with my directees and in many spiritual practice presentations. I enjoy teaching the casting prayers. Casting prayer is very meaningful to many people and evokes many strong emotions.

This is one of my favorite books about multi-sensory prayer practices. It is easy and engaging reading appropriate for youth as well as adults. As a pastor I have used many of the prayer techniques mentioned here with both adults and youth in the congregation.

I believe that in the church we talk a good game of prayer, but that many of us begin our prayer time with good intentions only to find ourselves making mental grocery lists without quite knowing how we got there. But how do you confess that to others in your church? It would make you seem un-Christian to admit that you struggle to say focused in prayer! Multi-sensory prayer can help us find the focus we need -- even those of us without ADHD. Even more important is that in naming distractedness in prayer, and giving people tools to overcome it, we open the doors to admitting where we struggle and realizing that people in the next pew (who we always assumed were unfailingly devout) struggle as much as we do.

As for the reviewer who felt these prayers weren't "Christian" enough, I can't say that I found that to be a problem. As a Christian, I bring Christ to whatever practice I engage in, but even that's not what's going on here. The practices named are not reworking of other religion's practices -- they all have roots in Christianity. Things like walking the labyrinth have been used by Christians for centuries. A particular denomination may have rejected a practice, but that doesn't mean the practices don't belong to the Church.

I love this book. I've used it with youth groups, and I've enjoyed it myself. It offers many ideas for conversations with God other than knees and pews. Of course, those are good, too; but sometimes I just have to move. Great book!
As someone who has been searching for ways to grow in my prayer life, this book has given me a multitude of new things to try and some new twists on prayer methods that I had already learned of! This will work well for pray-ers on any level of their spiritual paths, whether it's getting a novice started or pushing those who are too comfortable in their ways. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is open to new ideas on their faith journey.
