Why We Pray by William Philip and Alistair Begg
Prayer is a large part of my daily life, and I can't see going a day without it. Giving thanks is also a very important part of my mornings. Do you pray? If so, does saying prayers come easy for you, or do you stumble when saying them? I feel we all have our moments when we don't know what to say to God. I 'm guilty of stumbling in prayer, but I say what comes from my heart, even if my words are a scrambled mess. I'm pretty sure God will understand my words no mater what!
Why Do We Pray - Prayer is how we communicate with God. Prayer allows us to give thanks to God. We worship and praise him. It also allows us to ask forgiveness for our sins, and present our requests to God. Prayer also gives us the power over evil. Prayer is powerful, and bonds believers together. I also say a couple who prays together, stays together!
This a beautiful little book filled with Biblical insight, and it will be read over and over again. I highly recommend this book. This book encourages me, it explains what prayer is about, and why it is the way.
