The perfect prayer retreat

I bought this hoping to learn more ABOUT prayer, but after a short introduction, Matthew Henry leaps right into prayer. There you are swimming in his prayer of scripture passages drawn from all over the Bible. The feeling is intimate - looking to a man's deepest concern...
I bought this hoping to learn more ABOUT prayer, but after a short introduction, Matthew Henry leaps right into prayer. There you are swimming in his prayer of scripture passages drawn from all over the Bible. The feeling is intimate - looking to a man's deepest concerns prayed in scripture back to God. The six chapters explore first Adoration, then Confession, Petition, Thanksgiving, Intercession and then Closing. At the end of each chapter is the list of footnotes - about eight pages. There is much to learn here, not in the usual way, but by just jumping in and praying. I confess I haven't read all 312 pages; however it will be perfect for a prayer retreat or when I am too hurt to think of what to say.

No Method

I saw Bold Headings and underneath them: Bible Verses. Bold Headings of csomething like: "Heads of state", "For the unjust", "For People who..." then Bible verses, but no I couldn't see a method or for a baby Christian any help to a method for prayer. I recommend to Eve...

I recommend to Everyone Kay Arthur's books for the true Method to Prayers and Bible reading. Sorry could not follow through.

    Recommend for new believers in Jesus Christ

    This book will help anyone not familiar with how to pray. I found it to simplistic for me, however I have been a believer for over 40 years.. I got the book to see if I was missing anything. It is well done, just not for me.

    Great Read

    Shows you how and what to pray for. Gives the scriptures that go along with what you are praying for. The only thing I would have liked to have seen done different is to have the scripture reference with the text instead of a list at the end of the chapter.
