After the Lord's Supper with the disciples, Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray just before He was arrested and later crucified. By making this his last act even though He knew what was coming, He showed the importance of prayer, particularly during a time of great testing. If He needed to pray, how much more do His followers today need to make prayer a top priority in their lives.... God wants each individual to have a victorious life through prayer and communication with Him. Prayer can come directly from the heart of a believer, and it can be effective. But to have confidence in prayer, based on knowledge of the Word of God, the effectiveness is greatly increased. This book and the scriptures found in it are written/ selected to bring understanding and confidence in prayer. It is also hoped that the believer will lose any feeling of awkwardness in prayer and will learn to let the prayers literally "flow" to God's Throne with full confidence and assurance that He hears and answers.
