What Does the Bible Say About Prayer?



Countless books have been written about how to pray, what to pray, and when to pray. But this book includes exactly what God says about prayer, straight from his Word.

The Bible talks a lot about prayer. God reveals the elements of effective prayer and promises to hear and answer our prayers. His Word also gives many examples of prayer from his faithful followers, including David, Moses, Hannah, and more. And Jesus himself teaches us how to pray.

In this clear, concise book, all the scriptural prayers and primary references to prayer have been carefully collected and organized into useful categories. When necessary, brief explanations are provided, using insights gathered from trustworthy commentaries.

Let the Bible's timeless truths encourage you to grow closer to the Lord through prayer today.

Everything the Bible Says About Prayer

I'm afraid the title is misleading. This book is too small to be that comprehensive. It is actually just bigger than a pamphlet at 126 pages and is mostly a hodgepodge of scriptures about prayer, related to prayer, and a few prayers. I found it interesting reading with my quite time, but some of the scriptures seemed to be out of context (not the ones you would think), especially the scriptures coming from the book of Job recited by his friends. They really were not even about prayer. They were about Job's life and why bad things were happening to him. II Samuel 12:16 was also included which was referring to David praying for his sick child. What it does not tell you is the rest of the story, as a famous commentator would put it (whose name is currently beyond my memory), that David was told this child would die as a result of his sin, and the child did, in fact, die. It is interesting, however, that David prayed anyway, hoping, that God might change his mind.

I did find some scriptures that were enlightening and encouraging for me, like Jonah's prayer in the belly of the whale. The chapter, "An Ally Amid Adversity" was well put together. I also was blessed by Hannah's song of thanksgiving and King David's prayer of thanksgiving. These "Timeless Tutors" are a great place to turn when you want to read the prayer of Jabez, Habukkuk's prayer of praise, and other prayers by famous people in the bible. The "Thoughts on Prayer by Classic Christian Writers" was icing on the cake. There are a few comments by those who put this book together, but mostly, it is scripture.

This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishers for review.

Everything the Bible Says About Prayer is a comprehensive listing of prayers prayed by Bible heroes and the Lord Jesus Himself, though it's not a complete listing.

This book has been compiled by Keith Wall, and is useful to understand the elements of effective prayer, answers to prayer, and Jesus' teachings on prayer, which are contained in chapters one through four. It has been organized into different categories, making it useful when you need a Biblical prayer for a specific need, which are outlined in chapters five through thirteen. The appendix shares timeless truths from some of the classic Christian Writers. Reading the Scriptural prayers on a specific topic by chapters brought about hope and faith as I read them.

Some of the categories include prayers for: Guidance; Wisdom; Forgiveness; Salvation; Justice; Protection, Healing; Wholeness; Hardship; Heartache; Provision; Prosperity; Praise; Answers to prayer; Jesus' teachings on prayer; Praying with boldness; and Elements of prayer.

Though not a complete listing, the Scriptures contained in the chapters are comprehensive enough for a start. The reason I say it's not complete is because of all the prayers listed in my favorite chapter, Psalm 119.

The appendix includes thoughts on prayer that are necessary for a complete prayer life: Praying God's promises; Waiting on the Lord; God hearing us; Taking time for prayer; United in prayer; Meditation; Persevering prayer; Praying confidently; Intercessory prayer-the many aspects that some of us tend to forget. We learn that God hears and answers, but in His timing. I found this section very helpful in being steadfast in prayer when answers don't seem to be coming.

Book Review: Everything the Bible Says About Prayer
The title pretty well sums up this book on prayer. While not an exhaustive reference on prayer, this 126 page paperback contains the major Scriptures found on prayer grouped according to categories in chapters. Some of these chapter headings include "Praying with Boldness, Elements of Effective Prayer, and Prayer in Times of Hardship and Heartache." Each chapter begins with a short explanation and then the passages are quoted in various Bible versions with just a few notes here and there.
There is also a small appendix in the back of the book called "Thoughts on Prayer by Classic Christian Writers." Spurgeon, Moody, Murray and others are quoted here for the reader's benefit.
This book is nicely arranged and would possibly make a nice gift for someone. It is one of those books you can pick up and read quickly or just read the chapters that interest you. While not anything spectacular, I would say I liked the layout better than the average compilation of Scripture passages around a common theme type book.
5 out of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I was really looking forward to reading this book. I'm always interested in learning more about prayer and was excited to see that this book included all the scriptural prayers and references to prayer.

The book is divided into logical categories so you can quickly find prayers that pertain to a particular situation. There are also a chapter with a lot of great insights on praying by Christian leaders.

I was disappointed that there isn't an index in this book. I was hoping to be able to quickly find specific prayers by different Biblical characters or authors, such as Paul's prayers or those by Hannah or Nehemiah, without trying to guess which categories they were in.

It was also disappointing to realize that my favorite prayer, from Ephesians 316-21 was not included. It makes me wonder what else was left out.

However, this is a great little resource book to expand your knowledge of God's intentions about prayer.
