Publisher's Summary

Most of us have trouble finding time to pray. There's church and school and neighborhood and job and friends and recreation. And then the crises hit! Time for prayer seems an impossible luxury.

As a pastor, Bill Hybels knows hundreds of people with schedules like this. Yet in his own life he has made the hard discovery that prayer doesn't happen on the run. He decided he was too busy not to pray. Hybels's accessible introduction to prayer has already helped over 400,000 readers develop a rich and regular prayer life in the midst of life's business. Now, in this revised and expanded 10th anniversary edition, he includes new insights from his years of ministry and his own spiritual journey. He shows how to slow down to pray, listen to God, respond to what we hear, practice the presence of God and overcome prayer barriers. His fun and practical book offers the resources we need for growing, ongoing experiences in prayer.

    "Excellent - a good challenge and reminder"

    Felt quite challenged by a lot of this; principally that busyness is the archenemy of healthy spirituality and prayerfulness. I need to slow down, make space - for God and others. Many guys (myself included) get too busy and even find our significance in the wrong busyness rather than in the presence of God and in our relationship with God. Great book, well read. Highly recommended.

    "Short, honest and practical teaching"

    Very honest and practical teaching. Short enough to listen to during a busy season in life. Inspired to change my schedule to create the space for quieter reflection and listening to The Lord with some tools on how to make it a more fruitful, quality experience

    "A good argument for prayer"

    A thoughtful and well argued book. Backed by Biblical comment throughout. With Bill Hybels, you feel he is showing you as much about his failings as his experience and this makes it real for me.

    "Very practical advice and insight on prayer"

    I've been praying my whole life but always felt I just wasn't communing with God like I should. Bill Hybels does an excellent job breaking down many aspects of prayer like: Why we don't pray, How God is willing and able to hear and answer prayers, habits and how you can build them, how to pray more effectively, how to get answers to prayer... to name a few. Apparently learning for years that I should pray, repent, seek guidance... wasn't enough. I needed a user manual with detailed steps and I think I finally found one.

    "Awesome Book!!!"

    I'd just ordered this book on Saturday, and I have already listened to it several times. This book is loaded with information that every Christian should know when it comes to having a healthy prayer life!

    "Perfect Title for Today's Lifestyle"

    I love this book, and I am sure that I will listen to it again. There wasn't a moment that I struggled to finish it, but like the book stresses that we need to make quiet time for God, I did just that when I chose to listen to it.. the most memorable part for me is chapter 14 (leadings).
    Additionally, the author and narrator did justice to the book, pitch perfect, tone perfect, I felt like we were sitting and having a conversation.
    Thanks.

    "I I needed to read this book!"

    I really need it this book and I'm so glad I read it. It did a lot to remind me that no matter how busy my day is, I need to keep God at the forefront of it I need to remember to carve out time of God on a daily basis in order to create and develop a personal intimate relationship with God. It reminded me to develop a relationship that shows that God knows me and I know God in a way that are few of my friends know me. It reminded me to make time to be with God as I would any other friend. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking deepen their relationship with God.

    "A Great Read!"

    My first encounter with this book was in 2000, since then I've read it 4-5 times. Additionally I've referred it multiple times. We are now reading it in a women's prayer ministry and hoe refreshing it is! Thank you, now my daughter is reading the 20th anniversary edition;another generation that will be blessed.

    "Opens your eyes on missed opportunities to pray"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Too Busy Not to Pray to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What about Robertson Dean’s performance did you like?

    The honesty and transparency he shares in this book let's me know that I'm not the only one lacking or slacking in my prayer life. I need to be more conscious of the free time I have in my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Have a pen a paper handy. There are wonderful takeaways in this book to refer later.
