A CBA Bestseller -- 20th Anniversary Edition, Revised and Expanded with a New Introduction and a New Chapter. For the past twenty years, Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer. During those years, the world hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace and intensity have increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well. The urgent need for prayer is clear. Newly revised and expanded, Bill Hybels' classic broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray.
