A CLASSIC COLLECTION ON PRAYER is a compilation of three of the finest titles on prayer ever published. It intends to familiarize Christians with the source of power available to them through prayer. THE KNEELING CHRISTIAN is a classic book on prayer that answers the most basic questions Christians have about prayer: “How shall I pray?”, “What is prayer?” and “Does God always answer prayer?” In A SHORT METHOD OF PRAYER, Madame Guyon teaches this simple truth: Pray from your heart and not your head. She also shares the great difference between praying to God and experiencing God through prayer. HOW TO PRAY by R. A. Torrey covers a number of prayer topics such as prayer and obedience, praying in the Spirit, praying according to God’s will, prayer with thanksgiving, when to pray, prayer and revival, and much more! These powerful titles have stood the test of time, all the while pointing the way toward communion with God as well as the life-changing benefits that spring from it.
Celebrate all the reasons you have to be grateful with this soul-stirring anthology of devotions, prayers, and scriptures. With A Collection of Thanksgiving Blessings, thankfulness is always in season!
Teens live in a time of lightning-fast change..but the spiritual disciplines that equip them to thrive in a culture addicted to speed haven't changed one bit. Daily communication with God (also known as prayer) and time spent in His Word are an unbeatable recipe for steady growth in erratic, unpredictable times. Prayer and the Devotional Life, the newest addition to the Uncommon youth curriculum series created by youth ministry veteran Jim Burns, helps to introduce these essential disciplines. Twelve sessions of youth-friendly Bible study will get your teens thinking and talking about the importance of spiritual practices, and guide them to make praying and Bible study part of their daily diet! Inside the book you'll find a special download link for additional reproducible student handouts and options for every session to tailor each study to your group's unique needs.
Most books are like visitors. They come and go. This book can be a long-term companion and assistant as you weave prayer into the tapestry of your life. Weaving Prayer Into the Tapestry of Life pictures each of us as a weaver at a loom, creating in every moment our lifes tapestry. The transformative thread of prayer is always available to be woven into our lifes design. In this weaving, we experience in wonder the creative presence of God. The chapters of this book gives an overview of Christian understanding and practice of prayer. The author combines Scripture, voices and sources from the tradition of the church, poetry, stories, and accounts of personal experience to explore ten of the most familiar ways Christians pray. These are: centering, praise, confession, meditative reading of Scripture, petition, intercession, dedication, silence, and benediction. Nine sets of Prayer Prompts, one with each chapter, invite you to move from thinking to doing. They provide a framework for personal devotion that includes all of the dimensions of Christian prayer discussed in the chapters. Resources from Scripture, prayers of the church, and contemporary materials offer structure and stimulus for expressing the prayers of your heart. These Prayer Prompts are adaptable for repeated use. Members of a prayer group or spiritual growth group may enjoy sharing experiences with this book. Martha Rowlett deeply understands Christian thinking, Christian living, Christian prayer, and, dare I say it, God. She shares her wisdom with utmost simplicity.
