This revised, 13-week study goes back to the biblical basics of prayer, cleaning out myths about prayer to rev up a powerful, ongoing connection to God that can invigorate every aspect of a Christian’s life. The author tackles the complex theological questions: If God is sovereign, why pray? If prayer is not a way to change God’s mind, what is it?
Prayer is a way, Jennifer illustrates, for God to send His power and provision into the world through His people. The study takes a detailed look at prayer’s purpose, process, promise, and practice.
