      Few aspects of the Christian walk are as simple and yet as personally challenging as prayer. I know in my own life I often struggle with not only carving out the time for prayer but also in simply remembering to do it. Pastor David Jeremiah adds good insight and guidance into a topic that has frustrated not only me but countless Christians over the centuries.

      One of the things that makes Jeremiah’s treatment of the subject so powerful is his

        One of the other things I appreciated so much about this book was the fact that Jeremiah doesn’t belabor his point. There is a

        place, I suppose, for exhaustive tomes on the subject of prayer, massive volumes that cover every conceivable method with plenty of historical examples. Yet this small book cuts to the heart of the matter without making me wade through the verbiage to find the nuggets of wisdom.

        I’m glad I picked up this book. In simple and straightforward form Jeremiah takes his readers on a journey to understanding that helps reduce the challenges most of us face in talking to God.
