Praying Like Monks, Living Like Fools: An Invitation to the Wonder and Mystery of Prayer [9781399808040]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

An invitation to an ordinary yet radical way of life, using historic Christian practices as both inspiring vision and practical instruction for how to encounter the wondrous, mysterious, living God through prayer. 

Prayer is the source of Jesus's most astonishing miracles and the subject of Jesus's most audacious promises, and yet, most people - even most Bible-believing Christians - find prayer to be boring, obligatory, disappointing, confusing, or, most often, all of the above. 

If you've ever felt this way, Praying Like Monks, Living Like Fools is your invitation to trade your conceptions and misconceptions about prayer for prayer in its purest form: a vital, sustaining, powerful connection with God that is more real and alive than you could have ever imagined. In these pages, Tyler Staton - author, pastor, and national director of the 24/7 Prayer movement - addresses common roadblocks to prayer and gives you the confidence to come to God just as you are. 

Through biblical teaching, powerful storytelling, and insights on historic Christian practices, Staton helps you . . .

  • Express your doubts and disappointments about prayer
  • Discover and practice multiple postures of prayer, including silence, persistence, confession, and more
  • Understand and embrace the wonder and mystery of prayer in everyday life
  • Realise that prayer is a powerful invitation to partner with God in the redemption of a fallen world
  • And, ultimately, open or reopen the line of communication with your Creator and experience afresh his divine power on earth

"Tyler Staton is one of America's most inspiring and gifted prayer leaders today, and his brilliant new book flows from the deepest place of his own personal life. At times it feels like holy ground. I particularly appreciated the practical exercises at the end of each chapter, as well as the closing section about the lost art of praying for the lost. Tyler serves up the full menu of prayer - from deep contemplative practices to teaching about the power and necessity of intercessory prayer. There's something here for everyone. It's both an on-ramp for those new to faith who are seeking to grow in a conversational relationship with the Lord and a master class for Christians who are seeking to be stretched and inspired. This book is a vital invitation into the highest calling of every person on the planet, flowing straight from the heart of a contemporary prayer warrior, a respected pastor, and a dear friend."
Pete Greig, founder of 24-7 Prayer International and senior pastor of Emmaus Road Church
