Experiencing God’s Presence 


From the award-winning author of When You Don’t Know What to Pray comes a bold and life-transforming book that will help readers develop a vibrant relationship with God. In Experiencing God’s Presence-Learning to Listen While You Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd tells readers that a fulfilling prayer life is more than just regularly talking to God or checking items off a prayer list. God loves us so much that he wants us to draw close enough not only to talk but also to listen.


Shepherd shows readers how to develop a dialogue with God, continually seeking him out and seeing him at work in our lives. Steeped in Scripture and personal stories of answered prayer, this book also includes sample prayers and action steps for readers to put into practice immediately.


Linda says, “I think this might be my favorite prayer book so far because I not only show you how to take time to hear God’s voice, but I help you focus on His presence.  I loved writing this, and I hope the book helps bring your relationship with Christ to life.”


What Readers Said


“Every time I read one of Linda Evans Shepherd’s books I know it is my favorite…until I read the next and I decide this one is definitely my favorite. Linda has done it again. I found Experiencing God’s Presence: Learning to Listen While You Pray incredibly helpful to my growth in prayer. Like her other prayer books, I definitely want to read this one again and work through the “listening prayers” again.


Like her other books, this one is conversational, down to earth, friendly, loving, and will lead you to a deeper life in your following of Jesus Christ. Includes Linda’s personal stories, her own superb brand of humor, and leads you through many examples of “listening prayers.” Go deeper. Get this book and learn to listen while you pray.”

–Dianne E. Butts, author of five books including Grandparenting Through Obstacles, Deliver Me, and Prophecies Fulfilled in the Birth of Jesus (Prophecies Fulfilled series)


“This book is a revelation, very well written, and full of anointed, and powerful ways to read the bible and most importantly Pray. I so much liked the way the author used testimony, scripture, personal experiences and godly thinking to encourage the reader to Behold and experience God, through prayer, and I was so delighted to read in each chapter her own, vibrant, and wonderful prayers. It was a way of praying that I knew I needed to adopt and to make my own. Please thank Linda for taking the time to write this book. She’s an inspiration.” – Reader from the UK


 “Take the time to read each page. Do the exercises, pray the prayers. It may change the way you pray. It will definitely enhance your prayer life.”–Julie B Cosgrove.
