One of the absolute best books ever written about prayer that will help strengthen your spiritual life and your relationship with God.
A Christian classic that is a must-read for those wanting to understand prayer, its purpose, and its power. Originally written in 1931 this powerful read remains overwhelmingly relevant for today's reader. Author Ole Hallesby understands the complexity and the simplicity of prayer, relaying that Prayer is not using God for our own means but rather prayer is dependence, openness, trust, and listening.
In Prayer: Expanded Edition, the author explains different forms of prayer as helpful touch points, and he doesn't shy away from discussing the difficulties of prayer, prayer being work, wrestling in prayer, and the misuse of prayer. This eye-opening and refreshing narrative brings focus back to God's intentional desire to listen and richly bless his children with peace and joy. A helpful study guide in the back of the book helps readers get the most out of Hallesby's insightful text, allowing the book to be used for personal meditation or group study.
