Posted on: October 4th, 2013 by Michelle Stramel No Comments

Too Busy Not To Pray coverToo Busy Not To Pray (20th Anniversary Edition) is a classic title on prayer by Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, Too Busy Not To Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.

Too Busy Not To Pray is not a deep theological treatise on prayer but rather a practical guidebook on the why and how of prayer. It is a reminder, encouragement and inspiration to spend daily time communicating with the God who saved us and loves us. Because this book came out of Bill Hybels attempt to improve his own prayer life, you won’t find yourself judged or condemned if you struggle with regular prayer. Instead you’ll be challenged to look at why you may not be praying regularly and encouraged to take some practical steps to get started. As one reviewer put it: “You cannot read this book without praying more, and praying better. It is thoughtful, clear, compelling and challenging–Bill at his best!”

Too Busy Not To Pray requires PocketBible for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch, PocketBible for Windows Phone, PocketBible for Android, PocketBible for Windows Store, PocketBible for Windows PC or MyBible for Palm OS. The list price is $9.99.
