We are designed to make connections to God through prayer in more ways than we can imagine. Prayer can be so much more than a simple conversation. It can be a wordless connection with God, a step beyond the boundary of the separated self. It can be a way to listen to the silence. And it can be learned. We can learn how to pray in ways we never thought possible. It doesn't take more effort; it takes more understanding.Wilson's book shows how the brain is designed by GodTo calm itselfTo relax into loveTo become increasingly aware of how connected everything is in GodTo experience a deeper intimacy with our creatorPrayer is something that our brains want to do with a little help. Ken Wilson tells us how.Praisefor Mystically Wired"Smart,savvy, candid, credible, unafraid, self-effacing, and shotthroughwith passionate love of Jesus . . . yes, hands down, this isthebest book on prayer that I have ever read.-Phyllis TickleCompiler, The Wordsof Jesus: A Gospel of theSayings of Our Lord"Iconfess, I don't normally like books on prayer, but MysticallyWiredis a big exception. While this book is incrediblypractical,I wasroutinely blown away by the intuitive genius of Ken's viewandapplication of prayer. Page after page, thinking I knew whatwasnext, I was surprised with fresh insight and unique perspectivesonconnecting with God. Being an evangelist, I was excitedtorealize I could also send this to spiritual friends who don't followJesusas a way to introduce him."-R. York MooreNational EvangelistInterVarsity ChristianFellowship USA"Itbegan the day Jesus' disciples came to him and asked, 'Lord,teachus to pray.' Ever since, Christ-followers have been wantingtolearn the ways of prayer. Ken Wilson's Mystically Wired isanextraordinarycontribution to that learning tradition. It's a wonderfulreadthat leaves you feeling, 'Yes, this is for me. Yes, I candothis. Yes, it's within reach.'"-Brian McLarenAuthor/Speaker/Activist"Iwandered away from religion because religion thought it hadallthe answers. Pastor Ken Wilson, though, understands thatlifeand faith are really about having the right questions. If youwantto pray for favors, put this book down now. If you want theanswers,the help here is only partial. But if you're looking for awide-ranginginquiry, and a path that can bring you closer to themystery-withoutthe mumbo-jumbo-delve within."-Carl SafinaAuthor, Song for the BlueOcean and The View FromLazy Point"MysticallyWired was a breath of fresh apologetic airfor me. Iprayand I experience God, and I find fixed hour prayer deeplymeaningful,but this book shows that God made us to do suchthingsand our brain is wired to communicate with God."-Scot McKnightKarl A. Olsson Professor inReligious StudiesNorth Park University"Inmy library there are scores of books on prayer-by legendsandmodern guides as well. It is not easy to make a genuine contributiontothis body of literature. But Ken Wilson has done so.MysticallyWired manages to bring together the bestof the sciencesandphilosophies of mind, brain, and consciousness with deepspiritualityand candid personal reflection. While it will happilyfitmy on my shelf, it fits best in a heart yearning to pray."-Todd HunterAnglican Bishop"KenWilson's new book is fascinating intellectually and engagingspiritually. Its theme is a great discussion starter with Christiansandnon-Christians alike!"-Dr. Joel C. HunterSenior PastorNorthland, A ChurchDistributed
