Unity minister Linda Martella-Whitsett provides a new framework for thinking about prayer that will revolutionize the lives of readers everywhere. The good news here is that you can pray without believing God; that you can have a rich and fulfilling spiritual practice without adhering to a set of creeds or dogmas.
She encourages seekers to look within, rather than outside themselves for a God in the sky, for the spark of the divine that is at the core of their being.
How to Pray Without Talking to God shows how to develop a true spiritual practice by: re-forming the words of traditional prayers; cultivating a habit of daily prayer and meditation; learning how to pray with others.
How To Pray Without Talking To God is filled with the author’s stories of her own evolving understanding of God. Each chapter includes a section called “Talk to Yourself” that poses questions for readers to write about or share in a study circle.
"Some people simply talk about the wonders of prayer while sharing stories about answered prayer. Linda actually teaches how to pray in a step-by-step, profoundly clear manner. Her passion for her own realizations about God and the nature of God are skillfully explained in unequivocal language. This book will have you saying, 'Yes! This is what I have always sensed but had no words to express it.' Her subsequent discovery and recognition of her True Identity empowers her infectious passion for each reader to realize his or her own Identity. Linda empowers us to realize our own True Identity, and then to claim it and live it." --Paul Hasselbeck, Dean of Spiritual Education and Enrichment, Unity Institute
