  1. June Proudfoot

    Brilliantly written. Easy to follow. I certainly will act on this. Prayer is vital and finding a different method is refreshing.

  2. Mrs.Marjorie Jones

    An excellent guide to prayer both instant and contemplative, and very suitable for both experienced and inexperienced Christians of all denominations.

  3. A keeper

    A really good book, thorough yet easily accessible and in Huggett’s usual style. Was inspiring. You could get through it in an afternoon if necessary or read more slowly chapter by chapter. Highly recommended.

  4. Kathleen Schaeffer

    A great book on the subject of prayer. Highly recommend it for anyone

    Great book. Really opened my eyes. Have met the author and he is a wonderful humble and spirit filled man of God. I am inspired by this and will order more of his books now.

Joyce Huggett

Joyce Huggett graduated with a degree in history and theology from Southampton University and has spent more than forty years practically engaged in missions work around the world. She has written a number of books about the Christian life. Her first book was published in 1980, and was followed in 1986 by the award-winning Listening to God. This led her to establish a retreat centre where she could teach believers on the subject of finding God’s guidance for their lives, and it also led her to write more extensively in the area of spiritual direction. In 1993 Joyce and her husband, David, became mission partners with Interserve and went to live in Cyprus to set up similar retreat facilities for missionaries. They then travelled extensively, leading retreats and providing pastoral care for missionaries throughout the Middle East and other countries in the 10–40 Window. In 1998 Joyce and David returned to England to continue running retreats for mission partners.
