Over 60 years ago Ralph Cushman compiled a Pocket Prayer Book for the Upper Room; it quickly became a classic and sold over 2 million copies. Harper has used this prayer book as inspiration to create an updated, timely prayer structure for individuals that is grounded in classic spiritual tradition.
Harper poetically states, "Nothing substitutes for time with God. It is the work of the heart from whence everything else springs in the life of Christian holiness." Prayer is the sacred time that sustains people's faith. Harper outlines a simple morning, noontime, evening, and bedtime prayer structure that can be modified to fit all lifestyles. He encourages readers to take time for the essential act of prayer throughout the day - to live a devotional life with prayer.
