More than two thousand years ago Jesus taught about the importance of prayer and the apostle Paul urged Christians to pray without ceasing. Yet a rewarding prayer life seems almost impossible for those of us juggling busy schedules, family needs, friendships, home tasks, or a demanding job. We d love to engage constantly with God: such as when we re working, driving carpool, or folding socks. But how can we, when we spend so much of our days just racing from one thing to another?
The author of three other books on prayer, Janet Holm McHenry set out on a personal journey to learn how to draw even closer to God through this crucial spiritual discipline. Her findings led to "PrayerStreaming, " a life-changing guide to praying through the clutter and clatter of everyday life.
Tap into History's Best Spiritual Wisdom Regarding Prayer.
Drawing from eight of the most respected and time-tested spiritual classics on the subject of prayer, as well as personal experiences of deepened intimacy with God, Janet Holm McHenry illustrates that incorporating prayer into the rhythms of life is in fact far easier than you think and more beneficial than you could ever dream.

“After reading Janet Holm McHenry’s book, PrayerStreaming, I see more clearly what it means to ‘pray without ceasing.’ It is not about certain words or spiritual tools or even a quiet place. It’s about laying our tasks and our lives before God each day, then asking for his presence and guidance. The book is an inspiring blend of Scripture, examples from real life, and teachings from the great prayer warriors of the past, including Brother Lawrence, Teresa of Avila, and Andrew Murray. Highly recommended.”
