"Prayer is not checking off answers on a wish list," writes Helen Grace Lescheid. "When we focus on 'give me answers' we become manipulative in our praying. We act as though God exists to serve us. But prayer is primarily growing a love relationship with God."
In this compelling book on prayer, Lescheid discusses the following:
-What is God like?
-How does He answer prayer?
-Does prayer change God or change me?
-What role does faith play?
-Is prayer ever wasted?
-What is the chief purpose of prayer?
As we get to know God, we learn to trust Him. Instead of praying "give me specific answers" we learn to pray "your will be done." In connecting with the universal purposes of God, we reach answers bigger and better than we imagined.
