Prayer is a force like the power of earth's mightiest dynamite. So why don't we see more of that dynamite exploding in our world today? In this book, Wayne Mack motivates us to pray more than we have before. "I have yet to meet people who would say that they pray as much as they think they should," Mack writes. And he shows us how to pray more as Jesus prayed. "I want us to learn from history's greatest prayer expert," he writes.
Dr. Mack guides readers through the biblical teaching on prayer, drawing frequently on the teaching of Jesus in the Lord's Prayer. Written for all Christians who desire effective and intimate prayer with their Father, Reaching the Ear of God will motivate readers to pray more . . . and more like Jesus. The book includes searching application questions, making this book ideal for either personal or group study.
