'A very encouraging and enjoyable read. It put a spring into my step and got me praying more than I had been.'
'Enjoyment and prayer are words that are not normally associated together, but after reading You Can Pray you will not be able to separate them! Tim's book is full of helpful insights into how we should pray, why we should pray and what we should pray. It's simple to read, yet not simplistic, as it engages deeply with the biblical text and also with contemporary issues. The book addresses many of the challenges that hinder us from praying and is jam-packed full of encouragement and tips on how we can become great pray-ers. Having been in full-time Christian ministry for over twenty years, both in Africa and in the UK, I wish this book had been available when I first started out! It is a must-read for anyone who wants to make prayer easy, biblical and God-glorifying.'
'I am so grateful to Tim Chester for writing You Can Pray. It is gracious yet challenging, accessible yet theologically robust. If you've ever wondered why we need to pray, or how to get better at it, this book will help you enormously. In a crowded market, this is one of the few books on prayer I shall recommend unreservedly.'
"You may be thinking 'not another book on prayer' and so was I. What I found was a book that challenged and stretched how and what I pray for. It was a refreshing reminder of the fundamentals of prayer and the end focus of glorifying God; however he chooses to answer our prayers. Whether you've read a lot of books on prayer or none - this is well worth the read."
"The subject of prayer can raise profound questions, fears, guilt and frustration in us all. Tim Chester answers with rich theology and practical wisdom. As ever he is Trinitarian, gospel-shaped and pastorally-hearted. By the end you won't just believe the title, you'll rejoice that, in Jesus, You Can Pray."
Tim Chesters clear, insightful writing is filled with great advice, and great glimpses of Gods love and eagerness to hear from us. It also includes the encouragement that prayer enables us to grow in faith, confidence, and joy in the fact that God answers prayer, often in awesome ways. Chester helps us appreciate our access to the whole Trinity Father, Son and Holy Spirit and how together they combine their ministries to make our prayer deeper, and help us truly engage with our relational God. The central message is that there are no great pray-ers, except Jesus Christ in whom and through whom we can all pray. This book will freshen up prayer lives with some great new strategies for novices and prayer warriors alike.
