If God Knows What I Need, Why Should I Pray? by Kent Crockett

Popular author Kent Crockett has written yet another practical, relatable, and inspiring book— this time on prayer. If you’ve ever wondered how to pray or why we even need to, this book offers biblical instruction and shows us the heart of God in the process.

Kent Crockett wants to take the religion out of prayer. By “religion” he means methods and rituals that are a counterfeit to the true way of talking with God.  In this accesible book, Kent Crockett answers common questions about prayer and helps readers develop a stronger prayer life.
