Talking with God through prayer

At first glance, Charles F. Stanley’s newest book, “The Ultimate Conversation,” could be just another book about prayer.  Even the back cover suggests it is a guide to help you communicate better with your Heavenly Father.  That’s what I was expecting.

At a time when people are experiencing unrest, chaos and uncertainty and desperately searching for answers, Dr. Stanley tackles the subject of the hows and whys of prayer, a subject he has written about before in his books, “Handle With Prayer” and “How to Listen to God.”  As good as those books have been in the topic of prayer, “The Ultimate Conversation” is possibly Dr. Stanley’s best book so far.

This all-in-one guide about intimacy with Christ, discerning God’s voice, praying for others, winning your battles and finding your purpose is full of simple steps that will guide you into an intimate relationship with the Father above and beyond what you have experienced before.  This book will take time to read if you want to truly benefit from the guidelines set forth.  If you truly desire a relationship with God beyond a superficial experience, read, underline, study and implement the suggestions Dr. Stanley makes.  Study the Scripture and start your prayer time in expectation.
