Uncensored Prayer: The Spiritual Practice of Wrestling With God

Copyright 2011, Civitas Press LLC

Are you searching for something deeper in your prayer life? What would it look like to engage God in a wrestlng match, and live to tell about it? In this bold and beautiful account of Uncensored Prayer, author Joy Wilson shares her insights and experiences of taking a radical risk of wrestling with God in Uncensored Prayer.

 To wrestle with God is to argue with God, risking honesty to gain intimacy, and naming our deepest fears. God wants to share Uncensored Prayer with everyone, talking about what we think and feel. It is wrestling through anger, faith, pain, hope, and what it means to be human. Winning is not the point. Restoration of love and trust is.
