Are you curious about biblical Christian meditation? Through stories, practical advice, and helpful prompts, Rick Hamlin guides Christians to center their minds and hearts on God as they seek to hear the still small voice above all the noise and chaos in the world.

Rick Hamlin has been unpacking the power of prayer in Finding God on the A Train and Ten Prayers You Can’t Live Without and the special Guideposts book, Prayer Works. In this new book, you will discover

  • how meditation has deep Christian roots that go back for millennia
  • how it can be used to live more authentically and let go of anxiety
  • how to love more generously and find God’s will in your life
  • how to grow in compassion, forgiveness, and acceptance.

The steps are simple, and at the end of each chapter Hamlin offers specific exercises to enhance your practice.

“If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself and take his cross daily and follow me,” Jesus said to his followers. Meditative prayer offers a rich resource to do just that. Silence speaks volumes and becomes a tool for all Jesus followers.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

As a Christian woman I strive to always be better, to get closer to God. By doing so I can live in a way that brings me peace 🕊️. The only time I can find myself totally relaxed is when I’m praying or just talking to God. It’s such an amazing feeling. This book opens up new ways to find that inner sanctuary in prayer and meditation. Even if you’re a non-believer, what harm could come from following the ways of Jesus? He was kind, empathetic, caring, selfless, courageous and he loved unconditionally. A role model that no one can fault. Rick Hamlin walks you through how to find that special place inside you, releasing your troubles by giving them to God. An amazing book through and through.
