Sometimes prayer may feel more like a formal meeting between the CEO of heaven and a lowly mail clerk. In reality, prayer is a conversation between a loving Father and His child-you. Through time spent in conversation with God, we begin to understand that He is always with us and not far away. Praying for ourselves may be something that comes easily-personal wants and needs have a central place in our focus. But how do you pray for people or situations you don't know and can't relate to? How do you pray for things that don't affect you? In twenty-eight days, Jim Bradford walks you through intentional ways to make your time of prayer meaningful and effective. He will help you learn how to pray for your needs, the needs of family and friends, your local church, and community. He will help you pray effectively for those around the world-people you'll never meet.
