Stop Praying Into a Vacuum!

If you are one of the people who prays and prays and gets little out of it. If you are one of the people who never gets answers to prayers. If you are one of the people who wishes you knew how to pray.

Have I got a book for you! I'll even share one secret--all productive prayer is positive! Norman Vincent Peale was right!

I've been praying for results since my mother taught her little four-year old that praying to God would stop her nighttime memories of seeing the girl in an iron lung. I kept seeing her and feeling so sad that she didn't have any toys and I kept hearing the horrible sound of that machine. Every night I would come down the stairs crying. Every night my mother would tell me to go back upstairs and pray to God to help me sleep. Some nights I came down twice. Night after night we played this scene until one night I just went to sleep and never had to go back downstairs to tell my mother about it again.

Gregg Braden took me and will take you on a journey of the natural way of praying. He will tell you things about prayer and praying that may never occurred to you before.

Imagine praying with your whole body, mind and spirit, engaging with God in union. Imagine the feelings associated with praying with your whole self. Imagine getting answers to your prayers that you actually like.

Braden teaches us how to be in the moment with our prayers.

Now, if you are getting the idea that Braden's book is about telling you how you should pray. Stop worrying. There is no right way of one person that is better than the right way of another person. Prayer is a personal conversation with God. Once you can put yourself in the mode of praying that works, you will see things will positively change for you in your prayer life.
