From the Publisher
"When God hungers for some special satisfaction, he seeks out a prayer to answer. Our prayer is the sweet aroma from the kitchen ascending up into the King's chambers making him hungry for the meal." ~ John Piper (Founder of Desiring God Ministries, Chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, Minneapolis, Minnesota)

If you ever feel that your prayers are going no higher than the ceiling, then this book will encourage you to keep praying, and will answer some of the questions you have about prayer and how it works. ~ Free- Free Church of Scotland Youth Magazine
•.. moving, challenging, personal, practical and real. A perfect present and an ideal read for a book group. ~ Evangelical Magazine of Wales

"Whether I am having 'a great day', whatever that means, or a 'bad hair' one and feeling about as spiritual as a plate of spam sandwiches, I need to remind myself that because of Jesus I may always come to my Father, inspired and energised by the Holy Spirit." ~ Steve Brady (Principal, Moorlands College)

"Yes, He does meet needs and answer our petitions; and prayer is the tool for responding to that provision with a heart of gratitude." ~ Dorothy K. Patterson (Professor of Theology in Women's Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Forth Worth, Texas)

"One day I will die - until then I will live on this earth thankful to God that I am living proof that prayer does indeed impact lives." ~ David Robertson (Pastor, St Peter's Free Church of Scotland, Dundee & trustee of SOLAS, Centre for Public Christianity)
