Does prayer make any difference? Does it really change anything? Yes, says Dr. R. C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. Though we cannot hope that our prayers will change God’s mind, prevailing upon him to act against his will, we can be sure that prayer does change things—including our own hearts. Plus, it is one of the chief means by which God carries out his will in the world.

For these reasons, Dr. Sproul argues, prayer has a vital place in the life of the Christian. In short chapters packed with practical wisdom, he unveils the purpose, the pattern, the practice, the prohibitions, and the power of prayer, calling Christians to come before God’s presence with joy and hope.

With the Logos edition, Does Prayer Change Things? is fully integrated with the other resources in your digital library, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. All Scripture references are linked directly to the text of your favorite Bible translation, making your Bible study and teaching preparations more effective and rewarding. You can also explore Scripture on a deeper level with powerful search features, Passage Guides, and all the other interactive features in your Logos library. That makes this important book more useful than ever before for pastors, teachers, Bible study leaders, and anyone else desiring to get deeper into the truth of God’s Word.

    I'm on my way to read any book on prayer I can get my hands on and I'm glad Sproul is in my early days of reading on the subject. Just under 100 pages (and free in Kindle form) this book covers some really good points. However, there is one miss that is a little bit glaring. Sproul is best when he's his Sproul-ist. That is, when he's reminding you about the character of God, God's sovereignty, and to look away from what you think you know and to check Scripture as your ultimate authority. His best chapter of the book is discussing the purpose of prayer (Chapter 2). The title is chosen from this section and it covers a lot of key and overlooked parts. There is something you're going to find in most prayer books and that's a later discussion of the Lord's Prayer (Chapter 3). In this short-form book that makes a lot of sense. However, if you've read a book on prayer from a good exegetical speaker, then there isn't a lot of new ground here. For someone new, this is a good walk-through. The most glaring issue with the book is that there isn't a deeper dive on the answer to the question to the title of the book. There are some introductory topics addressed that were great on if prayer changes things. And yet, finding that a central part of the book or really covered fully enough to name the book what it is doesn't quite meet the standard anyone would really have. Is it a good book that covers the topic of prayer well in the short page length? Absolutely. If you were looking to answer the question on whether prayer changes things, however, you will be found wanting. Final Grade - B
