Dimensions of Prayer

Cultivating a Relationship with God  

by Douglas V. Steere

Prayer can be wonderfully accessible to everyone. "In learning to pray, no laboratory is needed but a room, no apparatus but ourselves," Douglas Steere writes. Aware of how easily we can be intimidated by complex methods, Steere suggests that we begin by simply acknowledging our dependence on God. Prayer comes as a response to a God who "besieges us with love," he says. In Dimensions of Prayer, Steere answers common questions and concerns about prayer. Among the topics covered are petition, confession, adoration, intercessory prayer, and how to cope with dry times in prayer. This easy-to-read book offers new "pray-ers" an engaging introduction to prayer while providing valuable wisdom for mature Christians.

Douglas Steere died in his nineties at the end of a full life of teaching, writing and ministering in a variety of ways. Steere is recognized as an authority on the spiritual life, having written numerous books on the topic. He was an extensive traveler on behalf of the American Friends Service Committee and Friends World Committee. The breadth of his ecumenical involvement was impressive, leading him, for example, to represent the Society of Friends (Quakers) as an Observer Delegate at the Second Vatican Council of the Catholic Church. Douglas Steere died in 1995.


Reading [Dimensions of Prayer] is like sitting at the feet of a wise, warm spiritual guide who tells me the important things he has learned about prayer over a lifetime."

— Tilden Edwards
Founder of the Shalem Institute

"Douglas Steere didn't merely write books, he lived them. In matters of the soul, Douglas Steere is a most reliable guide — a mountaineer in the life of prayer."

— Eugene Peterson
Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College
