by William Tenny-Brittian


Prayer has long had an action component to it. There are many ways we can pray that involve our senses and our bodies. Journaling, skipping rocks, drawing, singing, touching, dancing, even walking can be acts of prayer. William Tenny-Brittian, himself diagnosed with adult ADHD, goes back to ancient times and into the techno-generation to share ten types of kinesthetic prayer that will help even the most fidgety connect with God. He has filled Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still with ideas, easy-to-follow instructions, and ways to adapt kinesthetic prayer to most any situation and "personal limitation." Kinesthetic prayer can also have profound effects on the prayer life of children and youth. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is a valuable resource in children's and youth ministries, helping these action-oriented age groups to find ways to build relationships with God.

A relationship takes time together, says William Tenny-Brittian. Prayer for People Who Can't Sit Still is written to help you spend more time and more meaningful time with God.


“‘Earthquake Bill Tenny-Brittian’ is eminently qualified to write on this subject. He has done a nice job of reviewing prayer options for those of us who, like Saint Peter, are more fitted to action than contemplation. This book will find a place both on my bookshelf and in my waiting room.”
—Heather Sue Daniels, M.D., developmental and behavioral pediatrics

“Bill Tenny-Brittian begins each presentation with a basic description, then personalizes it with his engaging commentary. Imagine connecting a youth group with conversational journaling; casting prayers with elementary schoolers; acquainting adults with labyrinth walking or (my personal favorites) prayer walking and sensational praying. In an epilogue, he invites readers to continue their innovative dialogues with God and with the author.”
—Tom Van Laningham, Pastor, First Christian Church of Atlanta Academy for Spiritual Formation #6
