They Cried to the Lord Pr

Both compellingly and clearly, Patrick D. Miller introduces biblical prayer in all its varied forms and from different angles: the prayers of Israel's neighbors, the names of God in prayer, prayers for help, the response of God, praise, the prayers of women, confession and penitence, prayers for others, blessing and curse, and Jesus and Paul at prayer.

The perspective throughout is that of faith and its relation to prayer and theology. The result is a book of importance for church members, students, scholars, and others.

Excellent book! Answered all my question on the subject of prayer. I am no thelogical scholar and I understood every word. I am even looking to read other books from this author. I am even considering buying it. - C. Muldrow
