The apostle Paul often spoke of prayer. In the openings of his letters, Paul told his readers how he prayed for them, and asked for prayers in return. Paul's focus on prayer should draw our attention. D. A. Carson lays out several prayers from Paul's letters. He breaks them down to reveal what Paul is praying for and why. He reveals, most importantly, that the prayers of Paul are God-centered. This book turned out to be a lot more theologically rich than I was expecting, but after reading it I can see why. Carson really gets into the bones of Paul's prayers. There's nothing superficial here. There were moments when I got a little confused, and had to re-read a passage, but it's worth it. I did a lot of underlining in this book.
