Mystically Wired Exploring New Realms In Prayer
Author: Ken Wilson
We are designed to make connections to God through prayer in more ways than we can imagine. Prayer can be so much more than a simple conversation. It can be a wordless connection with God, a step beyond the boundary of the separated self. It can be a way to listen to the silence. And it can be learned. We can learn how to ...  more »

The purpose of this book is to help individuals gain a new experience from, through and with prayer. It is meant to be a `practical' guide to help the reader experience `a richer, fuller prayer life.' Wilson sets forth six `realms' that prayer can reach to and therefore enrich a person's life and connection with God.

This book was interesting, yes. It's not interesting in a way that makes me want to necessarily start right away with the tactics set forth in the book. It is interesting in the fact that it gave me a window into how someone else prays. What works for one does not work for another. I found it to be merely educational, not `practical'. If a person is at a loss of how to pray, they have come to a wall and feel desperate, this book may just be what is needed. A new routine, a new focus of how one prays, where one prays, when one prays.

I did like a statement that Wilson makes: "[W]e don't have enough metaphors to shine a light on prayer." I think this means there is nothing else, ever, that compares to prayer. That is something I can agree with. Also, being a person who likes a `second opinion' I can appreciate that a lot of points Wilson makes in spiritual and biblical, as well as secular, are well referenced.

This is not my kind of book, honestly. It was a little strange. It could be that I have been `wired', as many others have according to Wilson, to think in narrow terms about prayer. I think this book stretches slightly out of my comfort zone.
