A good number of Christians shy away from praying because of misconceptions and fears they have about prayer. Most are inundated with misinformation and false beliefs about what qualifies as a good prayer. This book was birthed out of a deeper desire and hunger for each believer to recognize the power of prayer that they can institute and practice independently. Prayer itself, as well as the approach to prayer and attitude towards prayer, are simplified in this book, granting readers the freedom to pray. Prayer, when rendered to the Holy Spirit, produces more. Among the key topics that are discussed in this book are: Aspects of prayers Common misconceptions about prayer Benefits of prayer Holy Spirit led prayer (the role of the Holy Spirit in prayer) Praying from a victorious position in spiritual warfare How to pray while waiting for the answer How to incorporate prayer in daily routine All of these have been shared so as to free the reader to simply talk to God.

Life is crazy. Prayer is simple. Prayer seems like it should be so simple. Yet when it comes to actually praying, it often feels awkward and complicated. I mean, what should you actually pray about? What do you say? Is there anything you should or shouldn’t say? Do you have to speak out loud? Where do you even start? To make matters worse, we’ve heard about prayer for so long that we feel awkward asking about it. It’s like having to ask a person’s name after knowing them for years. We’re embarrassed to ask because we really should know their name by now. Then comes the reality and craziness of life. Between work, parenting, walking the dog, a full inbox, keeping up on social media—who has time to pray? The truth is, prayer is simple. It’s like talking; talking with a good friend. Here’s the best part: No matter where we are in life, God can’t wait to talk with us. What does it look like to pray in the midst of your life? What do you say when you don’t know how to pray? I’m asking the same questions. Let’s talk.

Prayer is–as the title suggests–simply talking with your Father. It's having an ongoing conversation with God, where you as His child openly and honestly communicate your praise, repentance, thankfulness, and requests. When we have a humble posture before our Father, it gradually tunes our hearts to His so that our desires line up with His eternal plan. In Talking with My Father, Ray Stedman looks at our deep need for prayer and the nature of prayer through the lens of Jesus's parables in Luke 18.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

In his most powerful message since What’s So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew, Philip Yancey explores the intimate place where God and humans meet in this Prayer Ebook. Polls reveal that 90 percent of people pray. Yet prayer, which should be the most nourishing and uplifting time of the believer’s day, can also be frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. Yancey probes such questions as: •Is God listening? •Why should God care about me? •If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer? •Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent? •Why does God sometimes seem close and sometimes seem far away? •How can I make prayer more satisfying? Yancey tackles the tough questions and in the process comes up with a fresh new approach to this timeless topic. “I have learned to pray as a privilege, not a duty,” he says, and he invites you to join him on this all-important journey.
