Hayford, popular evangelical pastor and author of more than 40 books, has developed a prayer primer for Christians at either end of the faith spectrum. Whether new to the faith journey or a seasoned follower of Christ, believers will find many specifics: e.g., praying through difficulties with precision; praying for loved ones with pinpointed prayers. Hayford's text opens with a brief biblical history lesson and moves quickly into a discussion on fighting spiritual adversaries through prayer. The author explains the how-tos, the when-tos and the where-tos before debunking common prayer misconceptions. Christians will especially find helpful the suggestions on how to pray for family, friends and work associates, using the powerful message modeled by Jesus, who lived a life characterized by loving service while all the time offering consistent "inward" prayers. Hayford's message is clear: Christians need to take seriously their privilege to pray. This author's readership will appreciate his advice and most certainly put it into practice.
