Prayer is hard. We'd rather be doing something else. Anything really. But God commands us to pray. And to do so continually. We see examples of people praying for a wide range of things in the Bible. Jesus taught his disciples to pray, and that model prayer can become the basis of our prayers too. We need to pray deeper, more fervent prayers. Or, as the Puritans used to say, we need to 'pray until we pray'. We should see prayer as a privilege, not a duty, and certainly not a burden. This 30-day undated devotional offers timeless wisdom and encouragement from Michael Baughen, Alistair Begg, Raymond Brown, David Coffey, Jonathan Lamb, Paul Mallard, Bruce Milne, Calisto Odede and Rico Tice. They focus on sections of Nehemiah, Habakkuk, the Psalms, Daniel, Like, John, Ephesians, Philippians, Thessalonians and James. You will be enthused as you receive fresh insights each day and allow your prayer life to be transformed.
Pray is the ideal re-boot for a flagging devotional life. It is warm and biblical and practical. I will be recommending it to lots of people. -- Julian Hardyman, Senior Pastor at Eden Baptist Church, Cambridge and author of Idols, Maximum Life and Fresh Pathways in Prayer A helpful resource which enables you to feed on God's Word and be urged on to pray. There are many lessons here from the prayers of God's people in both the Old and New Testaments, as well as Jesus' prayers for the church. What a great way to spend a month, studying prayer with such a wide range of applications, alongside the encouragement to pray more ourselves! -- Karen Soole, Women's Worker at Trinity Church, Lancaster and Chair of the Northern Women's Convention
