The Importance of Prayer

Seek the Lord and His strength;
Seek His face evermore! -1 Chronicles 16:11 (NKJV)

I am over 1/2 way through a book by the Kendrick brothers called The Battle Plan for Prayer. I must say that I am most impressed with the book. It comes in paperback and is a little over 220 pages. Basically, an easy read — packed with Scripture references to back up the points they make. I am big on lots of Scripture references: more Scripture means less opinion! The theology is solid and brings honor and glory to God.

Is anyone among you suffering? He should pray. Is anyone cheerful? He should sing praises. -James 5:13 (HCSB)

As Christians, it is asserted (rightly so in my case) that we don’t spend a fraction of the time that we could or should talking to our Father in prayer. The book points out methods that we can employ, what are right or wrong ways to pray — and certain things we must do to be ready to pray prayers that God will hear and respond to.

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18(NASB)

As you can tell from this post, I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to ‘up their game’ in their prayer life.
