Having trouble talking to God? Youare not alone. We know we can talk to God, but it just sounds so important, so intimidating, so religious. We assume that only the very spiritual talk to him or hear from him directly. But author Sheila Walsh says, qEvery sound we utter, every thank you we say, every tear we cry in God's presence is prayer.q Get Off Your Knees and Pray is a real woman's guide to real prayer?from understanding the biblical basis for prayer to cultivating a vital personal relationship with God. It is the perfect blend of practical advice, personal stories, and biblical truth to encourage and help you achieve greater intimacy with God through prayer. Prayer is not just a few sentences we say while on our knees. It is living out our ongoing, every-moment commitment to God. qSheila steers us away from prayer as formula (say the right things the right way and God responds) and toward prayer as picture?a picture of God's desired relationship.
