About the Book

Prayer is a high calling and an amazing privilege, and being a person of prayer is one of the most important callings in your life. Just think about this for a moment: We can talk with the God of the universe! And we can know that not only does He listen attentively and with great affection, but also He responds—by revealing His heart, giving us direction, blessing our circumstances, releasing justice, and much more.

Growing in Prayer is the most practical book on prayer I have read. It will go down as a classic and will stand alongside the greatest books on prayer in church history.”
