Christians often struggle with prayer because it has become a one-way conversation with the ceiling. It doesn't have to be this way! In this revised and updated edition of the classic bestseller, Peter Lord offers an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to developing a rich prayer lifemoving believers from one-way communication to God to two-way communication with God. He answers such questions as
Can I hear God's voice today?
How can I discern the difference between God's voice and Satan's voice?
How can I find God's will and direction for my life?
and many more
God still speaks today, and when believers pursue a dynamic personal relationship with him, they will learn to recognize and cherish his voice.
