Most humans on this planet pray at least once in their lives. Children pray, often with alarming simplicity and ease. And yet for many Christians prayer can seem like the most difficult thing in the world. We know we ought to pray, but it is the area of our Christian lives which gives us the greatest sense of failure and guilt. In these five careful and insightful studies into the nature and practice of Christian prayer, we listen to what God has to say about prayer, and learn from the example of the great prayers of the Bible.
A supplementary chapter by Don Carson gives additional help on the mechanics of getting down to prayer.
