In Constant Prayer

There is no greater way to spend your time than in relationship with the Lord. “In Constant Prayer” by Robert Benson is the second in the “Ancient Practices” series published by Thomas Nelson. I have not previously read any of Robert Benson’s writings and was pleasantly surprised to find a humble, honest, and at times humorous writer who brings insight into the purposes and practices of prayer.

Through the book you will find the history and importance of prayer in the Christian faith. The author outlines the importance and rewards of setting a daily prayer pattern as the early Christians did . . . setting aside times, taking time out of our secular lives, in order to communicate with our Creator on a personal level. The author explores the parallel to our “work lives” and prayer; discussing the "Daily Office." He points out that as we learn a craft or trade, we must also learn to pray. It takes practice and dedication. This book will challenge you to make prayer a devoted practice in order to fulfill God’s will for us that we ALL should be dedicated to prayer as the body of Christ. There are few practices that are as critical to the Christian life as prayer. We should not take 1 Thessalonians 5:17 lightly. We are to pray continually. “In Constant Prayer” will prompt you to follow through on that command. ( I will be looking at the other works of Robert Benson . . .he is a wonderful writer!)

*I was provided this book for free through the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze program in exchange for my unbiased review.
