If your prayer life is routine, joyless, boring, unfullfilling...John MacArthur can help you to make the discipline of prayer powerful in your life. God wants us to desire and delight in him. The book is easy to read and understand, and the lessons contained therein are completely supported by scripture. Learn to talk to God.

This is a fantastic resource to gain a deeper understanding of prayer and how to approach it from God's perspective and not our own. Yet another great study by John Macarthur. Highly recommend it for anyone.

Our group of 6 women is using this book for an informal Bible study and it is wonderful. Many years ago my husband bought a 10 casette recording from "Grace to You" about the Lord's Prayer. I was delighted to find that John Macarthur had revised this study about the Lord's prayer and added even more food for thought. Our group is really enjoying the study. If someone is out of town, if it is possible, we use skype to bring them to us. The Lord's prayer is the pattern for prayer that Jesus gave to us. It is an incredible way to pray.
Mr. Macarthur includes a group study guide in the back so even someone who is very new or very nervous about leading a Bible study will feel comfortable. Great book!

While this isn't the best book on prayer that I've ever read, it may be the best Scriptural study of prayer that I've read. MacArthur's in-depth Bible study on prayer is convicting and cuts to the heart. It can potentially greatly aid you in your prayer life.
The former edition of this book, Jesus' Pattern of Prayer, published by Moody Press in 1981, is also excellent. Alone With God is basically a heavily edited revision of Jesus' Pattern With Prayer with a few additional chapters. Still, some of the points from the older book didn't make their way into the newer one.

I was looking for a Bible study that I could do alone & at my own pace. (I may use it in a group format later). I love John MacArthur's books in general & this one is a great perspective on prayer. There's a discussion guide in the back that can be used for Bible study-individual or group. And, as with most of his books, it goes deep into the topic & makes you explore in detail. I'd definitely recommend this book.

These solid, biblical truths, are life changing. And Dr. MacArthur presents them in such away that they are easy to understand, applicable to life, and right out of the pages of God's Word.

Do we make the best of our alone time. How do we look at prayer. A duty, a way to experience God in all that we do that it becomes a way of life. Do we pray that it expresses Gods glory, the furtherance of God's kingdom. Is our prayers God centered or self. The study is centered around the Lord's prayer to guide us. Prayer is to honor God not self. When we seek Gods will and character, we are changed and become more like Christ. When we understand Gods sovereignty, we do not become passive but urgent in our calling for Gods glory

Sometimes we can spend too much time reading about prayer rather than doing it. However, this shortish book (180+ pages) is a great resource for aligning our focus.

Too often our prayer can be too needs-based, ie, it's all about us. Whilst in taking us through The Lord's Prayer and then Paul's priorities in prayer, MacArthur provides a challenge to allow prayer to be more God focused. Most of the book walks through MacArthur's reflections on the Lord's Prayer. I've been using The Lord's Prayer a lot recently, so I found this a good reminder of Jesus' intentions when reciting this prayer.

However, it's the last two chapters that spoke to me the most. MacArthur moves from Jesus to Paul's prayer life to outline what Paul prioritised in His prayers. He highlights two key priorities:

1. "That we would be worthy of our calling." I'd never noticed that Paul exhorts each of the Epistle churches with this command. Rather than being needs based (God has promised to look after these re: birds of the air, flowers of the fields in the Gospels) Paul emphasises a focus on our spiritual health (and our brothers and sisters). As we are growing holy, God's light will shine through us, enabling us to serve.

2. Pray for the lost. "Evangelism begins with prayer". As a church we often feel compelled to make a noise about issues we don't agree with and effectively can become a disruptive element. MacArthur suggests by reference to Paul's letters we live a quiet life committed to praying for those who don't belief. Particularly, for those we disagree with and the leaders of our nations that we may struggle with. Our weapons are "divinely powerful". We can achieve little, but God can achieve much, so long as we are praying.

I'd recommend this book for anyone seeking refreshment in their prayer life. I know it has adjusted mine.
