Prayer: what,how and why? A book review

Does Prayer Change Things? (Crucial Questions, #3)Does Prayer Change Things? by R.C. Sproul

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is short but powerful book written by one of the most respected minister/'teachers in our day.  RC Sproul in this book gives much information about what we should pray for, how we should pray. What kind of results can we expect and what things need to be present or absent in us when we approach our Maker in prayer. Why are some prayers answered and others go seemingly ignored.

My favorite chapter is the one where RC blows apart some of the viral spreading of misinformation regarding God and our prayers for healing. 

This is a quick read but it thoroughly covers what we need to know in order to pray, appropriately, effectively, constantly and in such a manner that elevates God to the place he occupies in the universe and then to our hearts to make sure there is congruency there between what should be and what IS.

Only then are we qualified to pray and to expect to hear from God in return. Then we can pray with a knowledge of God's will and our prayers will be effective and powerful....just as we exalt the King of Kings and acknowledge that "all good things come to us from the Father of Lights who does not change with shifting shadows."

I highly recommend this book. I do not know if it is still in print but it is available on the Kindle for a minimal price (possibly free)
