Book Description

Does prayer make any difference? Does it really change anything? Yes, says Dr. R. C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. Though we cannot hope that our prayers will change God's mind, prevailing upon Him to act against His will, we can be sure that prayer does change things including our own hearts. Plus, it is one of the chief means by which God carries out His will in the world. For these reasons, Dr. Sproul argues, prayer has a vital place in the life of the Christian. In short chapters packed with practical wisdom, he unveils the purpose, the pattern, the practice, the prohibitions, and the power of prayer, calling Christians to come before God's presence with joy and hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wise and Practical Advice on How to Pray June 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Prayer is an exercise of passion, not of indifference." ~ (Locations 321-22)

R. C. Sproul's books have recently become quite the interest for me. I enjoy the way he writes and he seems to have great insight into many pertinent topics. In this book he argues that prayer doesn't change God's mind but rather it changes things that happen. At first this doesn't make sense and sounds a bit confusing. But I'm willing to trust that it is true.

What I liked best about this book is the explanations about the Lord's Prayer. Through example we can learn to pray much more effectively. R. C. Sproul encourages the reader to indulge in "fervent adoration of God." He also talks a lot about repentance and has some strong things to say about sin hindering our prayers.

To me, the writing style of the author is at times majestic and I felt I could fully respect the author as he seems to be quite the expert on the topic of prayer. His conclusions were all very logical and he really goes into detail therefore making the book very practical and helpful.

I am impressed with the clarity of R. C. Sproul's thoughts and can highly recommend yet another book in this series.

I really didn't need to read a book on prayer to believe God listens. For he truly does and I have examples in my life to prove it. All I can say is never to ask God lightly for patience. That is one prayer he definitely answers!

5.0 out of 5 stars A most necessary read! July 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As Dr. Sproul stated that prayer takes practice, so I also think that Christians need to be reminded what prayer is and isn't. And especially what Biblical prayer entails. Thank you for this wonderful book.
