Praying with Paul: A Call to Spiritual Reformation

ISBN: 9781441227003



God doesn’t demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately, says top-selling author D.A. Carson. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. By following Paul’s example, we can do the same. This book calls believers to reject superficiality and revolutionize their lives by embracing a God–guided approach to prayer.

“One of the most useful things is to vocalize your prayers.” (Page 2)

“Robert Murray M’Cheyne declared, ‘What a man is alone and on his knees before God, that he is, and no more.’” (Page xiii)

“‘pray until you pray.’ What they meant is that Christians should pray long enough and honestly enough, at a single session, to get past the feeling of formalism and unreality that attends not a little praying.” (Page 18)

“One of the foundational steps in knowing God, and one of the basic demonstrations that we do know God, is prayer—spiritual, persistent, biblically minded prayer.” (Page xiii)

“effective prayer is the fruit of a relationship with God, not a technique for acquiring blessings” (Page 15)

    Is this a repackaged and renamed former book by Carson called, "A Call to Spiritual Reformation: Priorities from Paul and is Prayers" from 1992?
