Dear God, Teach Us How to Pray
Dear God, Teach Us How To Pray" focuses on our private prayer life with the Christian God of the Bible. Because the truth of the Bible is essential to prayer, the author devotes the first chapter to the truth of the Bible, the second chapter to the Christian God and the third chapter to the exclusivity of Jesus as our only intercessor with the Father. The remaining chapters deal with our motives, the necessity for forgiving others, the Lord's Prayer, Jesus' prayer for himself, his disciples and all believers; the value of using the Psalms in our prayer life; praying in a postmodern culture; a prayer "checklist"; and an appendix that briefly describes the history of Western philosophy since the Reformation, informing the reader on how it came to be that Christian prayer is scorned in today's secular culture. If you are seeking a book that will greatly enrich your prayer life, this is it! If you are not a Christian, it is the author's prayer that this book will convince you to become one.
