Discover the difference in having a prayer life and living a praying life.
This updated, 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. Though prayer is essential to the Christian life, believers often have questions about prayer itself. Live a Praying Life tackles the complex theological questions of:
- If God is sovereign, why pray?
- Can I change God's mind?
- If prayer doesn't give God new ideas or awaken love or mercy, then what does it do?
- What part do faith, obedience, and forgiveness play in prayer?
- How can the promises of God become real to me?
- How can prayer open my life to God's power and provision?
Jennifer Kennedy Dean takes a detailed look at the purpose, promise, and practice of prayer, serving readers precious truths that can release the power of prayer in our everyday lives.
