You Can Pray: Finding Grace to Pray Every Day by Tim Chester

176 pages | $12.99 | Paperback

Summary: There are no good “pray-ers,” but there is one great pray-er — Jesus Christ. Tim Chester shows us how, through Christ, we can become great pray-ers when we know three key truths about God:

• God the Father loves to hear us pray

• God the Son makes every prayer pleasing to God

• God the Holy Spirit helps us as we pray

When these truths are in place, we discover why prayer is easy, why prayer is difficult, and the arguments and priorities of prayer. Prayer is a child’s asking her father for help—and that’s not beyond any of us. Each chapter closes with a sample prayer based on a biblical text.
