How to Pray – Book Review and Home Group

ISBN 978-1-529-37492-6

Pete Greig has been teaching on prayer and involved in a non-stop prayer movement, 24-7 Prayer, since founding it over 20 years ago.

He is an Ambassador for the NGO Tearfund and an associate tutor at St Mellitus Theological College, London, and also leads a large church in Guildford called Emmaeus Road – as well as being an award-winning author.

His latest book, How To Pray, is based on Jesus’ teaching on how to pray which has also been compiled into the recited prayer we all know as The Lord’s Prayer. The four ‘movements’ of The Lord’s Prayer are Pause, Rejoice, Ask and Yield and Pete subdivides this outline into 12 concise, accessible “how to” chapters as follows:
1. Prayer Everywhere – why pray?
2. Keeping it Simple – starting out in prayer
3. Slowing and Centring – how to be still before God
4. Adoration – how to worship God
5. Petition – how to ask God
6. Intercession – how to ask God for others

8. Contemplation – how to pray without words
9. Listening – how to hear God
10. Confession and Reconciliation – how to get right with God
11. Spiritual warfare – how to exercise spiritual authority
12. Amen. Read more...
