As a rote habit, prayer leaves us empty. As a leap of faith, it often challenges and disappoints us. Is there real power in prayer beyond the bumper sticker affirmation?
What is prayer, and how can it transform our lives?
God the Creator can seem remote and untouchable in the face of human trials and tragedies. But it is he who urges us to come to him, to engage with him, to unburden ourselves into his hands. This book encourages us to recognize the God who stands at our elbow and find strength in his steadfast friendship and company.
A comprehensive exploration of our communication with the Divine, A Life of Prayer is suitable for both individual and small group studies. The text is divided into thirteen chapters ideal for a quarterly study but can be adapted to the needs of any student or classroom.
