The Bible offers us a multi-faceted view of prayer. Yet we cannot tell each other exactly how to pray, because we all have unique needs. Life is a constant and diverse concern; we wonder how we'll get through? When will our trial end and what will the outcome be? God desires that we pray, that we commune with him in intimate fellowship, and this very thought should excite us; but sometimes it seems like he isn't listening-especially when we feel we need him most. Billy Stone takes an honest look at some of the basic hindrance s to prayer-selfishness, the lust for personal gain, impatience, and more-. Some of these obstacles can outright stop our prayers from reaching God's ear. Yet it's God's desire that we have a clean heart before him so that our effectual and fervent prayers will avail much. Using lessons from his own life, Stone offers wise counsel to overcome stumbling blocks to prayer. Taking his words to heart can revitalize a struggling prayer life and open new roads to travel in prayer that will truly lead to a deeper walk with God.
