Prayer is a compilation of excerpts from the writings by Oswald Chambers describing prayer as work, an act of obedience, and an act of the will. Revealing what Oswald Chambers learned about prayer, it explains what constitutes biblical prayer, serves as a catalyst urging you to pray, and helps develops God-dependence. Learn from the man whose chief objective in prayer was to know Jesus, to learn His will, and to get himself aligned with it. If this makes you think twice about your motive in prayer, this book is for you!
You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives (James 4:3).
What might the right motives be? In Prayer: A Holy Occupation Oswald Chambers shares his hearts desires in prayer to help you: know Jesus better, to discern His will, and to make Christs will your own.
