Tom Wright on ‘The Lord’s Prayer’:
“References to Jesus’ own practice of private prayer are scattered throughout the Gospels and clearly reflect an awareness on the part of his first followers that this kind of private prayer — not simply formulaic petitions, but wrestling with God over real issues and questions — formed the undercurrent of his life and public work. The prayer that Jesus gave his followers embodies his own prayer life and his wider kingdom ministry in every clause.”
• There are many books about prayer, but this is the first by Tom Wright to cover all the key teachings and examples to be found in the New Testament.
Tom Wright on the Sermon on the Mount:
‘Prayer is one of life’s great mysteries. Most people pray at least sometimes; some people, in many very different religious traditions, pray a great deal. At its lowest, prayer is shouting into a void on the off-chance there may be someone out there listening. At its highest, prayer merges into love, as the presence of God becomes so real that we pass beyond words and into a sense of his reality, generosity, delight and grace.
For most Christians, most of the time, it takes place somewhere in between those two extremes. To be frank, for many people it is not just a mystery but a puzzle. They know they ought to do it but they aren’t quite sure how.’

New Testament Prayer for EveryoneJackie Rowe, via The Good Book Stall
This slim volume (102 pages) is a compilation of Tom Wright's meditations on prayer, drawn from his popular For Everyone series. Tom's introduction is the only 'new' material, but it is written in his inimitable style - refreshing, easy-to-read and compelling. This distillation of his teaching is designed to draw us further onwards in the journey of prayer. He writes "Prayer is always a journey into the unknown, a voyage of discovery... But whether we find it hard or easy, the steady flames of prayer from the New Testament will be there so that we can light our own candles from them."
The book is then divided into easily accessible sections - under two main headings 'New Testament Teaching on Prayer' and 'Prayers of the New Testament'. If you are familiar with the For Everyone series you will know that Tom Wright quotes in full his own translation of each passage he uses, then follows it with clear and well-illustrated teaching. The highlight of the book for me was the section on Jesus' prayer in Gethsemane. I felt that Tom had entered into Jesus' agony, heart and soul and that helped me to follow Him there too.
