  • Ten Ways to Pray

    Ten Ways to Pray is a website and book providing practical and helpful tools for cultivating a life of prayer. Prayer is telling God what we want and need, but it is more. Prayer is also listening to God, and it is in the listening that we see and feel God’s power. In fact, if prayer does not include hearing and following the Holy Spirit’s lead, then it can be pretty boring—just you repeating your agenda to God, or even more tedious, you listening to me reiterate my agenda. These exercises foster a two-way conversation between you and God.

  • Jonathan Sacks

    Rabbi Jonathan Sacks provides a fascinating glimpse into Old Testament and Jewish thinking.
