Overview

For Timothy Chester, an understanding of prayer begins with an understanding of the doctrine of God. The prayer of faith, as represented in the Scriptures, is a trinitarian experience - to God through Christ in the Spirit.

Here we see prayer as practiced by the patriarchs, apostles and ordinary people in the community of faith. We find that in prayer our ancestors faced similar struggles to ours, and we take guidance from their examples.
