For anyone looking for a fresh approach to prayer, this book offers the imaginative solution of "wandering prayer": literally wandering somewhere, sharing our thoughts with God - a relaxed way of praying compared to formal methods such as the Jesus Prayer.

Long Wandering Prayer Summary

Long Wandering Prayer: An Invitation to Walk with God by David Hansen

So many of us experience guilt and frustration about our prayer lives. We want to experience God's presence, to grow towards interceding, meditating and worshipping as earnestly as the "prayer warriors" and saints that we read about. When we try, however, our thoughts are distracted and we can end up feeling bored and even irritated by the whole exercise. In this book, the author offers the imaginative solution of "wandering prayer": literally wandering in the countryside, along a beach or simply through the neighborhood where we live - in the presence of God. As we wander, our thoughts can flow freely - speaking to God about whatever pops into our head, or pausing to reflect on whatever is before us, "considering the lilies" as Jesus told us to do. Is our drive to control our minds in prayer - to focus on one thing or stick to one list - actually a way of hiding from God?
