Based on the prayer that Jesus taught His followers, the teaching in this book reveals personal and practical patterns needed to pray with insight, intention, and expectation as you present yourself before almighty God. This the way you should pray:Father in heaven, may Your name always be kept holy.May Your kingdom come....However, if you do not forgive people,then your Father will not forgive the wrong things which you have done (Matthew 6:9-14 PEB).

Narration of the prayer only proves memory is strong understanding the prayer enables results. Through God s Word and personal testimony, you will discover how praying is an experience you ll not just cultivate, but you ll appreciate and truly enjoy. This book will change your prayer life and transform your future.

Andrew Murray was a man of prayer, that is, he fully lived his faith in the Lord Jesus and lived fully such practice to the point of intensely proving the power of prayer during his life. His life was a testimony of what God wants to do in each one of us from the moment we decide to live intensely a life of prayer and intimacy with God. In our lives, as in the life of Andrew Murray, the need for prayer arises from the search for a blessing to be achieved, from confession to God, gratitude, petition, or worship. This book invites you to set aside a daily time to seek God, giving your prayers, requests and thanks to the Lord for a personal and genuine experience of faith. The text presents a daily message of meditation on the Word of God regarding prayer, its importance and necessity in our day to day life.

Living in the 21st century, learning to pray, praying and remaining prayerful are not luxuries for the elite, but a survival measure in today’s society. For this reason, young people must be challenged to learn the importance and the necessity of prayer and spiritual readings. However, it has been noted and reported by many church leaders that children and youth are reluctant to pray in public, are not always receptive to prayers, nor do they clearly understand the components of prayers. Learning to pray and the defi nition of prayers are not always comprehended as means of communicating or talking to God. The Bible teaches that in order to pray sincerely, spiritually and effectively, one must know God for him or herself through the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In addition, knowing the functions, personalities, and clearly understanding the function of the Trinity is necessary. The Christian Education Curriculum is utilized as an excellent modality for teaching children and youth the signifi cance of prayers and other parts of the Bible. This religious component encompasses all ministries in the church and is responsible for teaching, modeling, monitoring, and correcting non-acceptable Christians behaviors and lifestyles from birth to death.
Readers of these books will learn to approach God in honesty through prayer, how to hear His voice through scripture, and be encouraged by examples from the Bible so that she can deal with her own "voices".
