A comprehensive Bible survey of all the important aspects of the topic. A book in the All Series by a renowned Bible expositor.
"Through Prayer We Grasp Eternity" All the Prayers of the Bible is no mere recital of well-worn phrases--it is an outpouring of the heart to God. The passion and beauty of prayer, to say nothing of its necessity and efficacy, are powerfully reflected in this remarkable devotional. Covering the vast sweep of biblical prayers, Dr. Herbert W. Lockyer not only summarizes them all, but also shows you what each book of the Bible reveals about prayer and its role in human life and history. A small sample of the kinds of prayer covered in this book includes: * Prayer in peril * Prayer and spiritual progress * Prayer without words * Prayer of fear * Prayer of gratitude * Prayer for understanding of affliction * Prayer as dialogue * Prayer of a grieved heart * Prayer of distress * Prayer for divine action Herbert W. Lockyers "All" books give you life-enriching insights into the Bible. From characters you can learn from, to teachings you can apply, to promises you can stand on and prophecies you can count on, Lockyers time-honored works help you wrap your mind around the Bible and get it into your heart. Lockyers books include All the Apostles of the Bible, All the Divine Names and Titles in the Bible, All the Doctrines of the Bible, All the Men of the Bible, All the Women of the Bible, All the Messianic Prophecies of the Bible, All the Miracles of the Bible, All the Parables of the Bible, All the Prayers of the Bible, and All the Promises of the Bible.
