Why Do We Pray?

Full Product Description

Prayer is a privilege and a responsibility but we all have questions about how prayer really "works" as God uses it for his purposes and glory.

Why pray if God already knows what you're going to say? Why pray if God has already ordained all that comes to pass? Wouldn't what you prayed for have happened anyway? Can prayer change the mind of God? Why do we need to pray for something more than once? These and other questions call for a biblically-informed answer in keeping with the whole counsel of God on the topic. We need to hear from God on the subject of speaking to him. At its simplest, we just pray, talking to our God in the intimacy of our reconciled relationship in Jesus Christ. But a grounded, balanced and comprehensive knowledge of scriptural teaching on prayer will serve to enrich our prayer lives, to embolden us in expectation through our faith-fueled utterances, and to establish us in the hand our God to the advancement of his kingdom and glory of his name.

Why Do We Pray? by Stanley D. Gale was published by P & R Publishing in June 2012 and is our 50728th best seller. The ISBN for Why Do We Pray? is 9781596384149.

"What can ordinary believers do as we face life in a Western society that seems to be in moral and political freefall? Nothing is more urgent than for Christians to begin praying frequently and earnestly. One of the main ways the evil one hinders believers from the prayers that will change their own situation and move the world Godwards is by misrepresenting in their minds what prayer really is. This error alone keep many a prayer meeting largely empty, and many an otherwise Christian home relatively prayerless. Yes, loath though we may be to admit it, lack of believing prayer has brought us to where we are now in an increasingly aggressive and godless culture. Of course other factors are involved, but lack of prayer lies at the root of our spiritual weakness and cultural rot. Why Do We Pray? by James D. Gale is a clear trumpet call to prayer in the triumphant name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is a very brief book, but full of light, warmth and power. It dispels wrong ideas about prayer. What he says about prayer 'in the name of Jesus' should bring liberation of spirit to many who feel too unworthy to pray. His straightforward and Biblically balanced teaching on how intercessory prayer fits in perfectly with the predestinated purposes of God is a joy to read. I believe it will urge many to their knees as it removes some of the misconceptions that keep people from doing what their heavenly Father told them to do: 'Seek ye my face.' If I am right about that, this one little book could be used far and wide to do wonders that our gracious God has planned from eternity, once Christians start doing what it clearly shows them they are enabled to do, and divinely called to do: 'Ask, seek, and knock'."
