It's not about how many chapters in the Bible you read or about how many minutes a day you pray. It's about becoming a person who really enjoys spending time in God's presence-so much so that you lose track of time. This book is not for you if you are satisfied with your devotional life. It's written for the average non-prayer-warrior who struggles to set aside time daily for a meaningful, focused interaction with God. It will be worth the read if you: are hit or miss in your devotions and feel bad about it, quickly run out of things to say when you try to pray, find prayer to be, quite frankly, boring at times, have given up on trying to be a "man or woman of prayer."
