You Can Pray

Full Product Description

  • Struggling with prayer?
  • This book helps you focus on prayer
  • You'll find ways of keeping your mind on Christ
If you're easily distracted when praying, you're not alone. In fact, if you struggle to pray in the first place, that's not unusual either. Tim Chester tells us how we can be great pray-ers. And he admits that that's a really bold claim.

'The secret of great praying has nothing to do with human effort or skill,' he explains. 'Lots of people would like to think that it does because they want to make prayer an achievement.' But the secret of great praying is ... Knowing three things about God:

  • That God the Father loves to hear us pray
  • That God the Son makes every prayer pleasing to God
  • That God the Holy Spirit helps us as we pray

Tim looks at: why prayer is easy (how we pray), why prayer is difficult (why we pray) and the arguments and priorities of prayer (what we pray). Prayer is a child asking her father for help. And that's not beyond any one of us.

You Can Pray by Tim Chester was published by IVP in February 2014 and is our 15215th best seller. The ISBN for You Can Pray is 9781783590841.

"The subject of prayer can raise profound questions, fears, guilt and frustration in us all. Tim Chester answers with rich theology and practical wisdom. As ever he is Trinitarian, gospel-shaped and pastorally-hearted. By the end you won't just believe the title, you'll rejoice that, in Jesus, You Can Pray." - Glen Scrivener, an ordained minister and evangelist.

"You may be thinking 'not another book on prayer' and so was I.  What I found was a book that challenged and stretched how and what I pray for. It was a refreshing reminder of the fundamentals of prayer and the end focus of glorifying God; however he chooses to answer our prayers.  Whether you've read a lot of books on prayer or none - this is well worth the read." - Charmaine Muir, Minister for Workplace, All Souls, Langham Place.

'A very encouraging and enjoyable read. It put a spring into my step and got me praying more than I had been.' - Sam Allberry
