Product Description

One of the best ways to perfect any skill is to learn from a master, and prayer is no different. But where do you find skilled believers who will take you under their wings and mentor you? This book invites you to study with masters of prayer from the Bible. These biblical heroes - including Joshua, Hannah, and Paul - will counsel you with their cries to God, ignite your faith with their spiritual passion, and mold your heart to God's.

Publisher's Description

"They Knew How to Pray," invites you to listen to the prayers of fifteen biblical characters of prayer and gives you the chance to be mentored by these prayer warriors.

Publisher's Weekly

Carter, a California pastor and author, gleans insights about prayer from 14 men and one woman from the Old and New Testaments. Included are the usual suspects, such as Abraham, David, Samuel and Paul, as well as a few choices that are refreshing for being relatively unsung (Gideon, Hannah and Nehemiah). Non-evangelical readers may be put off by some of the persistent jargon in the book, and much of its content is derivative. For example, the idea that Abraham is chiefly known for being "God's friend" seems borrowed from Henry Blackaby's "Created to Be God's Friend," but Blackaby is not cited. What the book lacks in originality it at least partially compensates for in being user-friendly; each chapter is followed by a study guide that presents relevant Scripture passages and questions for personal reflection or group discussion.

    one of the best books about prayer. Very easy to read and comprehend, even for young readers. I would highly recommend this book to all my friends.

    Tom Carter, author of the book
    Each chapter in THEY KNEW HOW TO PRAY examines the prayer life of a Bible hero. "Action Steps" at the close of each chapter give the reader personal projects and goals to work on in his or her own prayer life. Discussion questions follow each chapter, and they are designed to make it easy for the Sunday school teacher or group Bible study leader to guide the class discussion. The discussion questions were field-tested in the small groups and classes of several churches before the book was published.

    There is an old saying, "Prayer is more caught than taught." In THEY KNEW HOW TO PRAY, Tom Carter gives us sound teaching that catches the wisdom and insight of those who call upon God in the Bible. There is much to gain here for small groups, Bible classes, or personal study. --Dana Olson, Director, Prayer First, Baptist General Conference

    I taught this book to my women's Bible study group at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. The women loved it and found great comfort and inspiration to pray in each chapter. I especially liked the final chapter, called "Your Prayer Life," because it addressed my needs the best. But I also loved the chapter on the prayer life of Samuel, which is called, "Practice a Ministry of Prayer." I highly recommend this for an intimate or a large Bible class or even a personal daily devotion.
