Have you ever wrestled with the question "Why isn't God answering my prayers?" This can leave you feeling frustrated, rejected and even angry with God. But it doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Selig's 5 Prayers God Loves to Answer helps us understand more fully the essential nature of prayer. It involves conversation with God, not simply making requests. Conversation requires listening as well as speaking, enabling God to reveal His very best will and desires to each of us. He is so much greater than we can imagine and desires an intimate relationship with us.
Using the Lord's Prayer as a guide, the author reflects from personal experience and biblical study ways in which your prayer life and relationship with God can be stretched and deepened. 5 Prayers God Loves to Answer will also help you:
- Discover the amazing promise Jesus gives about prayer
- Experience prayer as conversation with God
- Understand the ways God speaks to us
- Learn how to discern whether it's God speaking
- Extend God's kingdom through prayer
5 Prayers God Loves to Answer will give you a renewed excitement and dedication to prayer and encourage you to have life-changing, two-way conversations with God. Each chapter concludes with reflection questions and exercises for individual and small group use, offering practical takeaways to help you seek God's agenda and know Him more intimately.
"Dr. Selig has provided for disciples of Jesus a wonderful, must-read resource that lays out in very practical and compelling ways how to talk with God, experience Him, and advance His kingdom through prayer. The life stories Larry weaves into the text are delightful examples of God's ongoing work in the world today."
