Prayer Is Something We Can't Live Without - Book Review and Giveaway

I am not sure about you, but I know prayer has had a very important impact in my life. Prayer can accomplish great things if we learn to pray as Jesus did and make it a priority.

Dr Alexander Whyte was a great Scottish preacher in the 1800's. Not only did he spend his life preaching and converting his hearers, but he also devoted much time to discipling young men to follow the way of the Lord. Later in his life, he did an extensive study on prayer and incorporated his knowlege into his sermons. This book is filled with a variety of sermons he preached on prayer.  It is divided into three parts: Introduction on Prayer; Types of Prayer - which inlcudes prayers of men in the Bible such as Moses, The Psalmist, Jesus, and Paul; and Aspects of Prayer -includes reverence, concentration, and much more.  You can read a sample chapter HERE
You may order Lord Teach Us to Pray from Amazon or directly from Kingsley Press.

Although this book is filled with the kind of information we all need to learn about prayer, it is not one of those you can pick up, zip through in a day, and become an expert prayer warrior. It's more of a slow read, digest as you go, and return another day for a new nugget.  I myself, think this book has a vast amount of very useful information for any Christian desiring to grow their prayer life. Mr. Whyte had a close walk with  God and we can glean much from his wisdom.
