Christians pray for their own needs and for the needs of others. They pray in the face of conflict, and they pray for forgiveness. They pray to pour out their heart to God and to gain a glimpse of God’s heart for them.

As David Healey leads readers through the prayers of men and women in the Bible (Mary, Abraham, Moses, Daniel and more!), he shares new insights into how and why to pray. Participants 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.

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, he gave them what is now known as the Lord’s Prayer. Is Lord’s Prayer a formal prayer that you repeat only during Sunday morning worship? Has it become so familiar that you hardly think about its meaning? If so, you are missing out on a rich resource for your spiritual life.

In this study guide Douglas Connelly unpacks the Lord’s Prayer section by section with additional texts that help you dig deeper into Jesus’ teaching about how to pray.
