In Luke 11:1, one of Jesus’ disciples asked Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…” And I am sure that is the request many of us have as well. We are told in Phil. 4:6, “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God“. We are told in James 5:16 that, “the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective“. We would love to put into practice and experience what these verses talk about, yet we do not really know what prayer actually is or how prayer actually works. And even if we might know something about prayer and how it works, we might wonder whether our prayers actually make a difference. Does God really listen and change the course of history if someone as insignificant as myself prays?
If you are a person who would love to know what prayer is, how prayer works and why prayer is such an important part of the Christian life, then “Prayer and the Voice of God” by Phillip Jensen and Tony Payne is a must read. In many ways, “Prayer and the Voice of God” sets out to explain all the ABC’s of prayer; from what prayer is to whom the God of prayer is. It seeks to answer the questions regarding why we should pray and what happens when we pray.
Whereas the book seeks to answer all the big questions on prayer, it is also a book written in a very accessible way. Its content is packaged in such a way that it is easy to read, relate to and understand. If anything, “Prayer and the Voice of God” will motivate you to rejuvenate your prayer-life and experience the joy of prayer.
