Mystically Wired : Exploring New Realms in Prayer

Posted on 17 June 2013 Gavin Glenn

Is prayer for you too much like running into an invisible wall?

Try another approach - one that respects the wiring of the praying brain, that calls for different effort, not just more of the same. All of us - including you - have been equipped for a wide array of praying styles, including ways thought to be reserved for the ancient mystics.

Mystically Wired is a practical guide to cooperating with your brain's innate capacities in order to experience a richer, fuller prayer life. Your brain is wired and waiting to pray in new ways, enabled by a fresh understanding of some ancient prayer disciplines.

Prayer is a human instinct, not an impossible chore.

It can be so much more than a one-sided conversation. It can be a wordless connection with God, a step beyond the boundary of the separated self. It can be a way to listen to a silence pregnant with love. And it can be learned.
