Knowing God through Prayer: The Plan Jesus Gave is a study of the world’s most famous prayer, the Lord’s Prayer (also known as the Model Prayer or Our Father), based on the premise that Jesus would not have told us to pray a prayer that didn’t work, but that each line of the prayer was meant to bring about answered prayer and real communication with God.
Real-life examples of answered prayer illustrate the practical truths found in Jesus’ words. A Prayer Guide is included to “jump-start” the reader’s prayer life. Plus, with the Logos Bible Software edition, you have an abundance of resources that offer applicable and insightful material for your study. You can easily search the subject of the Lord's Prayer and access an assortment of useful resources and perspectives from a variety of pastors and theologians.
William Ray has hit on something special with this book. The insights are perceptive, yet basic and easy to understand. I would recommend this book to both old and young believers alike. This book will draw you closer to God.
