Certainly everyone who reads this thorough handbook will learn at least one or several new approaches to prayer! . . . This is the most extensive and fruitful compendium I have ever found!

--Marva J. Dawn, author of My Soul Waits, To Walk and Not Faint and Being Well When We're Ill

I find A Guidebook to Prayer helpful not as a manual of 'how tos' but as a guide into the reality of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to whom and in whom we pray. MaryKate Morse guides us also into the many creative ways in which we can open ourselves (and listen) in prayer. And she guides us into prayer that deeply explores our hearts and brings us into a transforming relationship with our Creator. I found myself pausing to talk to God in ways she suggests. I hope many will read and be so guided!

--Leighton Ford, author of The Attentive Life

I recommend this book for those who want to go deeper into the world of prayer as well as those who want to pray but don't know how to pray. Read this book slowly and prayerfully. As you do, you will find yourself falling in love with God.

--Joshua Choonmin Kang, pastor and author of Scripture by Heart

MaryKate Morse's A Guidebook to Prayer illuminates proven pathways for walking intimately with God. It will be a great blessing to all who read and engage the prayer practices she describes.

--Ruth Haley Barton, founder, The Transforming Center and author of Pursuing God's Will Together

Noting that faith becomes more beautiful through prayer, Morse offers fresh approaches to talking with God, including a catalog of 24 distinct, field-tested prayer methods.

--Kathleen Samuelson, CBA Retailers + Resources, October 2013

This book is both timely and important because, during this current period of prevalent prayerlessness in the western church, Morse teaches us about prayer in a doctrinally rich way and offers us twenty-four practical methods for engaging with God in prayer. The book is an excellent resource for both personal devotions and for leaders of group prayer.

--Jared Longoria, Artistic Theologian, Vol. 3, 2015

This book's content is deep and rich; for readers willing to pace their reading, giving time and intention to new possibilities in prayer, blessings await. Highly recommended.

--Carlyn Egolf, Congregational Libraries Today, Fourth Issue 2014

This is the most helpful book on prayer that I have ever read. It is a guidebook on prayer authored by someone whose own life and work are themselves profoundly shaped by the patterns of prayerful communion with God suggested in it. Whether you are looking for a book on prayer to deepen your own walk with God or are leading other people and groups toward a deep and vital spirituality, you will find this book by my friend MaryKate to be one of those rare books that you find off of your shelf more than on it!

--JR Rozko, Missio Alliance
