Description

We all pray . . . some.

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.

But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?

Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.

We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.

And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?

Realist perspective on prayer
Much in the vein of "The Practice of the Presence of God?" Lucado emphasizes natural conversation with God -- anytime, anyplace. The book will help remove your guilt over not having a daily prayer time that has become rote or mechanical, just so you can say you did it. This is a book about how to become closer to the Father, regardless of the amount of big words you use to address Him.

From Prayer Wimp to Prayer Warrior!
Ok, so maybe I am biased because Max Lucado is my favorite author, this has to be one of the best books about prayer. I couldn't put it down. I devoured every page like a famished infant. Let's start praying and see what GOD will do!
