"Never pray again? The very thought feels like a slap in the face of our faith! But through their engaging and provocative words, Aric Clark, Doug Hagler, and Nick Larson teach us how to attach legs to our laments, give teeth to our supplications, and put skin on our spiritual lives. Read Never Pray Again. But more importantly, practice it. For if we all engaged in such Christianity, our world would be transformed."--Carol Howard Merritt, pastor and author

Lift your chin, open your eyes, unfold your hands and get to work. The authors, writers of the popular "Two Friars and a Fool" blog, find the purpose of prayers not in the praying but in the doing--to Praise! Confess! Heal! Intercede! Never Pray Again follows a traditional liturgical structure, drawing upon major forms of prayer and presenting each as a practice rather than merely a prayer.

"Aric, Doug, and Nick are ridiculous, but Never Pray Again is exactly the kind of tom-foolery the church needs. Too many Christians speak holy sounding words, and assume their work for the good of creation is done. Never Pray Again offers us practical action words, and gets us to a place where we understand the truth spoken by Theresa of Avila: that `Christ has no hands and feet now but ours.'"-- Landon Whitsitt, author

Aric Clark is pastor of United Presbyterian Church in Fort Morgan, Colorado.

Doug Hagler is interim pastor at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Wyncote, Pennsylvania.

Nick Larson is associate minister at Broadway Christian Church in Columbia, Missouri.
