Item Description...
In his 25 years as a Methodist pastor, the question most frequently asked of Joe Jewell is, What is prayer and how does one pray? Not recited-by-rote platitudes, or long-winded sermons, or stale pieties, but how does one communicate to a higher power the things that really matter in one's life? The Elements of Prayer offers thoughtful guidelines. Written with the understanding that like writing, prayer is something everyone can do, but which all struggle to do well, Jewell uses Strunk and White's classic guide as a model for prayer. In ten rules of usage, form, composition, and approach, along with a playful glossary, the book bolsters readers's understanding of, and confidence in, the art of prayer. Rather than employing a doctrinal approach, Jewell's method is more fundamental, seeking to "outline rather than fill in," trusting in readers to find their own authentic voice in this essential element of spiritual life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Gentle, Illuminating, Inclusive  Dec 11, 2006
To paraphrase Joe Jewell, after 57 years of faith, I'm stymied by the very idea of prayer-public and private! Somehow after all those years in Sunday school, my confirmation, my son's baptism, my parents' deaths, I never got the hang of prayer. The Elements of Prayer gave me the basics. I also greatly appreciated that Jewell left out the proselytising. It turns out that the elements of prayer apply to "praying to some "other," to God in whatever guise he or she appears to you."
This is a gentle, illuminating, and inclusive book on how to pray in a way that works for each individual within whatever form their faith takes. Thanks Mr. Jewell! May we look forward to The Elements of Worship? ...of Faith?
Joe B. Jewell has been a parish minister for numerous years, and it seems that he never lost his sense of humor. He weaves in stories from his ministery and then makes his point throughout his book to help us in our conversations with God. He also weaves in prayers that I had forgotten from my childhood. The book made me feel all warm and fuzzy at a time when I needed it the most. But it's not mushy. And It's non-denominational.

Make this book a part of your holiday giving, especially for someone who might need a reconnection with God.

Both religious and literary guidelines are followed in a structured survey of prayer options and possibilities.  Nov 6, 2006
Author Joe Jewell was a Methodist pastor for over twenty years: the most common question he got was 'what is prayer and how does one pray?' The answers are in THE ELEMENTS OF PRAYER: LEARNING TO PRAY IN REAL LIFE, which offers up ten rules of prayer from composition and structure to approach. Both religious and literary guidelines are followed in a structured survey of prayer options and possibilities.
