Too Busy Not To Pray:
Slowing Down to Be With God
By Bill Hybels

Most of us have trouble finding time to be pray. There’s church and school and neighbourhood and job and friends and recreation. And then the crises hit! Time for prayer seems impossible to find.

As a pastor, Bill Hybels knows hundreds of people with schedules like this. Yet in his own life he has made the hard discovery that prayer doesn’t happen on the run. He decided he was too busy not to pray. The ideas in this practical book can help us to learn to slow down to be with God as well.

Bill Hybels is the pastor of Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago, Illinois.
