4.0 out of 5 stars A book for a praying chruch 15 Jun 2009
By David Kenney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was able to get through this entire book in one sitting before I went to bed, the book is super easy to read and flows very naturally from chapter to chapter. The author gives good examples and references from scripture.

I bought this as a resource for my church which is going through a "season of prayer" and my prayer class found the contents of this book very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely practical 16 May 2009
By Michael S. Pollard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Andrew has led group prayer in both church and parachurch settings, so he knows of what he writes. His book is extremely practical and will help your group to pray more effectively together. Get away from the bland prayers about Aunt Ethel's hip surgery!

4.0 out of 5 stars A western approach to group prayer - very systematic 3 Jan 2011
By Daniel Im - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Together in Prayer: Coming to God in Community by Andrew Wheeler is a great primer that explains what praying in community looks like. The book could probably be summed up in one sentence - pray to God, not to each other. If you want a good overview of everything this book has to offer, read the last chapter of the book. The appendix also has a neat assessment to determine how "prayer-friendly" your group is.

Wheeler is very systematic in unpacking what it looks like to pray in community - explaining both tips that will enhance group prayer as well as prayer practices that will actually hinder it. For example, he explains how we oftentimes direct our prayers at each other, instead of God by instructing, exhorting, sermonizing, counseling, and informing each other through our prayers. Here's an example, "Father, may people who are far from you come to our church today. They need to hear your Word and realize their need for you, rather than pursuing their own selfish desires. They need to repent and receive Jesus as their Savior, to save them from a Christless eternity. Their lives need your touch; may they stop making excuses and come to meet you today." Compare that prayer, which is directed more towards people than to God, with the following prayer. "Lord, please bring to our church today people who are far from you. Free them from anything thay may be keeping them from knowing you. Break down any barriers that are in their way, and draw them by your grace."

Wheeler also heavily emphasizes the idea of flow and properly informing individuals of what the prayer time is going to look like, instead of assuming that everyone will just join in. For example, he advises the following: that we select an individual to open and close the prayer time, that we encourage individuals to pray shorter sentence prayers, instead of longer prayers, that we reassure people that it's okay to pray more than one time.

Consequently, Wheeler doesn't naively offer a one-size-fits-all approach to prayer, but he, self-admittedly, wrote the book from a western approach to community prayer. For me, I grew up in a Korean church all the way until high school, and community prayer looked a bit different than what Wheeler explains in his book. In Korean churches, community prayer is more of a time of prayer where we would all be given a topic, and then approach God individually with that topic in a shared space. Or we would even spend time praying with one another, but the idea of sitting in a circle and listening to each other pray isn't the norm.

All in all, I give this book four stars out of five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Together in Prayer by Andrew Wheeler is a must-read 6 Sep 2010
By Doug Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I was very impressed by this book. It is well written and accessible. I read this over a week because I wanted to absorb the teachings in each chapter and make my own notes. The author sets a Scriptural context for all his discussions of prayer. I especially appreciated his insights for 'corporate prayer' - praying in groups - and have tried to model this at my church. I strongly recommend Together in Prayer as both a personal and ministry resource.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Treasure--Prayer 18 July 2010
By Marvin P. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is a must to read. It clearly presents the purpose of prayer and to whom I'm talking to. Andrew's book highlights my prayer weaknesses and encourages me to move on. It's a well documented book supported by Scripture. It's easy to read. I don't have a problem following what the author is saying. Families, individuals, small groups, and all others, will reap the benefits by reading this book and surely, improve their own prayer life. To be without "Together In Prayer" is like missing a valuable treasure.
