Publisher's Summary

Prayer is foundational to the Christian life, but many people don't really understand it. What is it for? How does it work? Why do we do it?
This short and accessible audiobook explains what prayer is, why it exists, and how it can encourage us in our lives of faith. Written by a pastor with years of teaching and counseling experience, Why We Pray doesn't simply tell listeners why they should pray but instead focuses on four blessing-filled reasons that will help Christians want to pray. Rather than feeling discouraged and disheartened by their inconsistency in prayer, listeners will feel reinvigorated to approach God with confidence and joy, delighted by the privilege of talking directly to their loving heavenly Father.

Any additional comments?

A decent primer on the topic. The topic is covered from a reformed/non-Armenian point of view. This results in a more cogent and complete hermeneutic. The short and digestible chapters do well at building upon each over and uses applicable metaphors when needed. There is space dedicated to the topic as it relates to God's sovereignty. However due to the short length there are a few sub-points on the topic that would have been nice to address.

The book offers a biblical look at the topic and the short length makes it a good starter on the topic especially for new believers. Final grade - B
