We don't need to be told that prayer is important. We know that an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father cannot be maintained if we don't talk to Him. Why, then, do we so often fail to do so? Jesus promises that if we pray, we will not faint. Why, then, do we find our lives so often filled with fainting, losing heart, discouragement, defeat? Ray Stedman show us the obvious answer: We have not been really praying. He guides us through Jesus' teachings on prayer in the Gospels and gives us a new sense of what talking with the Father is all about.
We don't need to be told that prayer is important. We know that an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father cannot be maintained if we don't talk to Him. Why, then, do we so often fail to do so? And why, when we do, don't we see the results we long for? Ray Stedman shows us the obvious answer: We have not been really praying.
Dr. Ray C. Stedman (1917-1992) grew up in the rugged cowboy country of Montana. Abandoned by his father when he was a young boy and emotionally cut-off from his mother, Ray had a ruggedly independent upbringing. Yet, through faith, he matured into one the great pastors, expositors, and spiritual leaders of the twentieth century. Todays church is filled with pastors and leadersmen like David Roper, Charles Swindoll, and Luis Palauwho consider him their mentor and lifelong friend.Ray was a mans man, who ended up being the father of four daughters. He and his family lived through the turbulent era of the 1960s and the Jesus Movement, a time of turmoil and heartache for Ray and his wife, Elaine, and a remarkable time of growth and expansion in his own ministry.Biblical teaching (exposition) was Rays calling and his passion, and he motivated people by the power of the preaching of the Word of God. He also inspired and taught many through the written word. With over nineteen books to his credit, from Spiritual Warfare to his insightful commentary Adventuring Through the Bible, Stedmans published works span the experiences of Christian life, including Body Life, a book that had tremendous impact on the church in the twentieth century.Ray Stedmans preeminent goal was to be a faithful steward of the gifts God had given him. By examining the life of this remarkable but very human man, you will find lessons and applications for your own life.(Taken from the cover of Portrait of IntegrityThe Life of Ray C. Stedman by Mark S. Mitchell)
