eBook: With Christ In the School of Prayer
: Thoughts on Our Training for the Ministry of
Intercession by Rev. Andrew Murray
The power of intercessory prayer is a great gift
from God. God listens to those he loves, and works all things for their good.
Murray, in his classic work, 'With Christ in the School of Prayer', calls the
church to exercise that powerful gift. Murray skillfully describes the role of
the Holy Spirit within the church and exhorts Christians to use the blessings
God has given us. This book is a guide to living a life as a temple of the Holy
Prayer by Philip Yancey
The unsolved mysteries and unanswered prayers all fade to gray against the
panorama of God's plan for the ages.In the end, unanswered prayer brings me face
to face with the mystery that silenced Paul: the profound difference between my
perspective and God's.
Five Things You Do
Not Know About Prayer by Dr. Joe McKeever
We know a lot about prayer. We know it's of faith and we know we ought to do more of it and do it
better. It might be helpful to address some of the things we do
not know about prayer.

Prayer by Gary E. Yates
We have all had the experience of unanswered prayer. We pray for God's healing
for a loved one. We pray for God to bring revival and renewal to our churches.
We pray for the suicide bombings to end and for our troops to come home. Why
does nothing seem to change when God has promised us, "Ask and you will
How to Pray by
Walter W. Harms
How do your pray? Who taught you to pray? Maybe no one ever taught
you how to pray and what it is all about. Do you pray a lot? A little?
Too little? Think you ought to pray more? Perhaps a more important question is:
why pray at all? If God is in charge and he loves you and accepts you, then why
Of Prayer - Its Meaning And Purpose by V. L. Eapen
Our Lord commands us: "Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation."
(Mk. 14:38) "Watch and pray" is an exhortation to be CONSTANTLY prayerful; NOT
at our convenience ALONE, but as often as we can. Prayer is BOTH 'a means to an
end' and 'an end in itself'. Part 1
| Part 2
Prayer - A Relationship by Brian Stoffregen
Prayer, most of all, is a relationship: a child with parents, friends talking
with each other. The second part of our gospel lesson uses the image of a friend
asking another for some food for the sake of another friend.
The God Who Delights In Answering Prayer by Rev. Bryn MacPhail
Prayer is an institution of God. Over and over again, the Bible commands us to
pray. And yet, I suspect that many of us, having prayed, have wondered about
whether our prayers will actually change anything. The importance of persistence
in prayer; why some of our prayers may not answered; what should we pray for?
These are some of the topics covered in this article.
Guaranteed To Succeed by Charles Spurgeon
We find a powerful reason for expecting prayer to be effective in the fact that
it is an institution of God. In God’s Word we are, over and over again,
commanded to pray. God’s commands and means of fulfillment are not foolishness.
Can I believe that the infinitely wise God has ordained for me an exercise which
is ineffective, and is no more than child’s play? Does he command me to pray,
and yet has prayer produce no more result than if I whistled in the wind, or
sang to a bunch of trees? .. Heaven and earth will pass away, but while God lives, prayer
must be heard. While God remains true to his word, supplication is not in vain.
The Lord give you grace to exercise it continually.
Prayer by Edward F. Markquart
So these are the four Biblical facts about prayer: Jesus was a person of devout
prayer; Jesus wanted his disciples to be people of devout prayer; we are to pray
with perseverance and persistence, with bugging and bothersome qualities; and
pray is effective and changes not only us but the heart and mind of God.
Exploring a Life of Prayer by Jane E. Vennard
Prayer is our response to God's loving call. In this reflection I will invite
you into activities to help you affirm and learn from these experiences of
prayer. We will explore what keeps us from responding when deep in our hearts we
long to be in relationship with God. I will encourage you to try different forms
of prayer to discover which ones fit you best.
God’s Generous Response to Boldness in Prayer by John MacArthur
But our God is absolutely available, absolutely approachable, gracious,
merciful, compassionate, kind and you can go into His presence boldly and ask
for whatever you want. You can go into His presence any time and not interrupt
Him. In fact, He desires you to do that.
do we need to pray? by Rev. Ron Friedrich
If God already knows what we need, Why do we need to pray?
Waiting Father” by Mark D. Ridley
You can’t shock God — he’s seen it all, and he still loves you just as much as
the day you were born. You can hurt God, because he loves you, and love is
always vulnerable. You can hurt him, but you can’t shock him, and you can’t make
him stop loving you, and waiting for you...Do you realize how deeply God loves you? Do you feel it? Do you
live in that love?
Shameless Path' by Jana Childers
After all, I believe that there is something to this thing called prayer. We
know about what happens in foxholes. We are glad if a person whose faith we
admire says she will pray for us. We see prayer working in other peoples' lives
and we believe Mother Teresa—don't we?—when she puts it to her novices so
pithily: No prayer, no faith, no faith, no love, no love, no devotion, no
devotion, no service. Yes, we say, we need that.

Faustina before the Eucharist
I adore You, Lord and Creator, hidden in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I adore You for all the works of Your hands, that reveal to me so
much wisdom, goodness and mercy, O Lord.
'Sweet Irony' - Be Grateful
for Unanswered Prayers
We want God to answer our prayers. Hopefully, we will thank Him
after He answers our prayers. Now, can we thank god when he does not
answer our prayers? Read Jim's article and we may have a different
perspective on unanswered prayers.
When God Says,
'Not Now' by John Piper
Luke emphasizes the praying of Jesus more than any other gospel. He
records nine prayers of Jesus, and seven of the nine are only in his
gospel. So let's let Jesus teach us about prayer. He knows about it
from both ends: he prayed as a full human; and he receives and
mediates prayer as God himself. There is no better teacher on
Two Kinds of Prayer
Christians who attend liturgical church services--services where
prayers and creeds are written out and repeated each Sunday--find
security in the repetition of time-honored words. Christians who
attend non-liturgical services find comfort in the opposite--praying
and professing in a different, spontaneous way each week.
Come: The Prayer that Changes the World
The Lord's Prayer can be rote and without thought or true petition
of the heart, or it can become a divine force unleashing God's
glorious blessing. One may pray "Thy kingdom come" without any
regard for the intent of Jesus, or one may pray "Thy kingdom come"
and the world itself begins to change.
General Comments about Prayer in Luke by Brian Stoffregen
Luke has a greater emphasis on prayer than the other gospels. The following are
the occurrence in the Gospels and Acts of words related to prayer.
The Comfort of
Formal Prayers by Susan Eapen
I have often felt lazy about completing the formal prayers in Kudumbaraadhana
Kramam. I have heard our prayers being criticized as
empty words (Jalpanangal) and such people point to the fact that Jesus had said
that we should abstain from vociferous prayers.
