Prayer is vital to the Christian life, yet who is satisfied with their own prayer life? Daily devotions draw Christians into a deeper faith, yet who believes their devotional life to be deep enough? This one-year daily devotional will provide rich prayer and devotional rewards for those who spend time with the wisdom found within. Each day's entry includes four elements, beginning with a relevant Bible verse followed by a brief reading on prayer from a respected Christian writer, past or present. Flowing from that reading is a reflection connecting the passage with the reader's own prayer life. The reflection concludes with a practical exercise in prayer. During this one-year adventure the reader will learn how godly men and women of the past took hold of God's promises despite hindrances and how they overcame obstacles to prayer. Magnificent Prayer provides simple keys to entering into the presence of a God who invites us to experience the pleasure and power of prayer.
