In 'Prayer, God's Answer', prayer is revealed as a gift from God intended to help us in our quest for more of Him. However, because of our focus on the answers to our prayers, we often miss out on how God uses prayer in our quest. It is in the pursuit of God, and not necessarily the answers to our prayer, that He uses to change our life. Our lives are changed and our image becomes more His image of us when we allow His Holy Spirit to work in our heart. This can only happen because of the love found in Jesus Christ.
There are many outstanding religious literary works that expand upon the Holy Scriptures and give insight into prayer. Great works have attempted to answer difficult and rudimentary questions such as:
• What is prayer?
• Is there a right way to pray?
• How can I ensure my prayers are answered?
• Who do we pray to and why?
Unfortunately, there are few literary resources that take the reader by the hand and, by walking through the Holy Scriptures, practically teach why and how to pray. This text is not a cookbook of recipes and formulations that passively feeds the reader, like a mother feeds her toddler a cookie drenched in milk.
This is a guide designed to cause the reader to actively and fervently seek out the Living God through a series of questions. These questions, specifically inspired by the Holy Spirit, are intended to challenge the reader through prayer to digest the spiritual meat within the Holy Scriptures. It is this author's prayer that the reader will unlock the power of prayer and, in doing so, grow closer to Christ, know who they truly are in Christ, and have purposeful life more abundantly.
In 'Prayer, God's Answer' the fundamentals of prayer quickly lead the reader to wonderful crescendos of revelation. The reader's focus begins to shift from the near-sightedness of simply having prayers answered. Soon, the reader understands that prayer is a gift from God. The ultimate purpose of prayer is to bring one to a place where the Holy Spirit transforms them for God's glory as they become more like Jesus. The mystery of how this happens through God's love is appreciated in Prayer, God's Answer.
