We pray for our own needs and for the needs of others. We pray in the face of conflict, and we pray for forgiveness. And we can learn how to pray by praying and being prayed for by others. In this guide we'll learn from biblical examples, such as Mary, Abraham, Moses and Daniel, gaining new insights and experiences in the adventure of prayer. This revised LifeGuide Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and a "now or Later" section in each study. 12 studies for individuals or groups.
You pray for your own needs and for the needs of others. You pray in the face of conflict, and you pray for forgiveness. You pray to pour out your heart to God and to gain a glimpse of God's heart for you. As David Healey leads you through the prayers of men and women in the Bible (Mary, Abraham, Moses, Daniel and more!), you will gain new insights into why, what and how to pray. And you will experience more fully the adventure that prayer can be. Now available in IVP's revised LifeGuide Bible Study format, Prayer features questions for starting group discussions and for personal reflection, as well as a new "Now or Later" section following each session.
