When Jesus was faced with materialistic Temple worship, He declared, “My house will be called a house of prayer” (Matthew 21:13). Yet, most of today’s Christian world spends little time in prayer. From the Great Korean Prayer Revival of the early 20th century to today’s growing Korean churches, the 800,000 member Yoido Full Gospel Church, and famous Prayer Mountain, Korean Christians have been known for their deep dedication to prayer.
In Building a House of Prayer, Dr. Joshua Young-Gi Hong presents us with eighteen easy-to-follow prayer models to readers who want to approach the Throne of God.
