    1 thought on “Adventures in Prayer

    1. This is one of the best little books I've ever read. Catherine Marshall writes from a lifetime of experience of prayer and a relationship with God. Her little chapters on different "types" of prayer are peppered with anecdotes from her own and others lives, and her faith, while in some places expressed in a dated manner, is still deep and relevant. a great read for anyone seeking to deepen their walk with God and see His Will in their lives.

    2. Some years ago I found this book for maybe a dime at a thrift store. It was the 70s edition and it was really beat up, but the title and the picture of a woman standing in a clearing, a cloudy sky above, but light shining through, just really caught my attention. The back of the book starts out, "He answers simple prayers!"I can't remember a whole lot about what it said, though I still have it and remember it fondly. It was a bad time for me and just the tone of the book helped some. Beyond that [...]

    3. Wow. This really changed my perception on prayer. Prayer has always been something that I've struggled with, like what's the point of praying if God knows every crevice and shadow in my heart? and how can I make prayer a conversation instead of feeling like I'm shouting at the wall? I loved how Marshall broke prayer down into these smaller, more manageable pieces and then delved into each one. And I also loved how she put a sample, fill-in-the-blanks prayer at the end of each chapter, and how sh [...]

    4. A good book. I feel that there are harder, deeper truths about prayer than the author reaches, but for those wishing to explore prayer, this will be a helpful book.

    5. Some inspiring and even challenging devotional thoughts on eight different types, or aspects, of prayer. The cover art for this edition is terribly dated, but the text is both contemporary and often profound. The publisher had Catherine Marshall, wife of Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall, pull together six reflections she'd written for Guideposts in the early 1970s; she expanded them and added two more chapters to form this short book on prayer. Some good insights and still applicable despite Marsh [...]

    6. I bought a copy of this little book off of after reading about it in Guideposts magazine.As a person of halting, reluctant faith at times, I found the descriptions of the different kinds of prayer insightful. Even Mrs. Marshall admits that there have been times for her when she prayed with barely any faith at all, yet she still experienced answered prayers (or at least surrender to whatever would happen).I like the emphasis on praying for even small things while acknowledging that God is not so [...]

    7. My mom gave me her copy of this classic, and I can't believe it took me this long to discover it! This is a great, easy read with practical prayers for the most common issues we face - waiting, relinquishment, helplessness, and more. And Catherine Marshall provides stories and examples for when these prayers impacted herself or others. A key prayer book to pick up and keep on your shelf!

    8. A short book on prayer with a handful of helpful insights. My favorite is a quote from Arthur Gossip, which says, "These are surely the most hopeful words in scripture, 'Apart from Me you can do nothing.'"

    9. In the reading of this book, prayer took on new dimensions for me. It is not really a "how to" book, but rather a "things you never thought of" book. It is a deep well and mature seekers will be able to draw up rich, cool waters of spiritual insight. Each chapter ends with a topical prayer which, surprisingly, offers a continuance or rather a fresh perspective of its chapter's chosen topic. I felt as if my eyes kept popping open, after which I would have to lean back, shut up the book and rumina [...]

    10. A dear friend gave me this book for the first birthday I had after committing my life to Christ. It was very helpful.

    11. Having worked in prayer for the past twenty years I have read hundreds of books on prayer. When I returned to Adventures in Prayer in was a time of refreshing. Read to discover new insight and be encouraged with old truths.
