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 creator
Prayer is something that our brains "want" to do with a little help. Ken Wilson tells us how.

"Iconfess, I don't normally like books on prayer, but "Mystically ""Wired"is a big exception. While this book is incrediblypractical, I wasroutinely blown away by the intuitive genius of Ken's view andapplication of prayer. Page after page, thinking I knew what wasnext, I was surprised with fresh insight and unique perspectives onconnecting with God. Being an evangelist, I was excited torealize I could also send this to spiritual friends who don't follow Jesusas a way to introduce him."

"Itbegan the day Jesus' disciples came to him and asked, 'Lord, teachus to pray.' Ever since, Christ-followers have been wanting tolearn the ways of prayer. Ken Wilson's "Mystically Wired "isan extraordinarycontribution to that learning tradition. It's a wonderful readthat leaves you feeling, 'Yes, this is for me. Yes, I can dothis. Yes, it's within reach.'"
"Iwandered away from religion because religion thought it had allthe answers. Pastor Ken Wilson, though, understands that lifeand faith are really about having the right questions. If you wantto pray for favors, put this book down now. If you want the answers, the help here is only partial. But if you're looking for a wide-ranginginquiry, and a path that can bring you closer to the mystery-withoutthe mumbo-jumbo-delve within."

""MysticallyWired "was a breath of fresh apologetic airfor me. I prayand I experience God, and I find fixed hour prayer deeply meaningful, but this book shows that God made us to do such
thingsand our brain is wired to communicate with God."

"North Park University"
"Inmy library there are scores of books on prayer-by legends andmodern guides as well. It is not easy to make a genuine contribution tothis body of literature. But Ken Wilson has done so. "MysticallyWired "manages to bring together the bestof the sciences andphilosophies of mind, brain, and consciousness with deep spiritualityand candid personal reflection. While it will happily fitmy on my shelf, it fits best in a heart yearning to pray."
"KenWilson's new book is fascinating intellectually and engaging spiritually.Its theme is a great discussion starter with Christians andnon-Christians alike "
