The Realities of Prayer - Larry’s First Book
Why pray? Does God hear my prayers? Do they do any good? Does God really answer prayer?
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions or perhaps all of them? All of these questions are questions that millions of Christians throughout the ages have probably asked several times.
Ever since 1987 the author of The Realities of Prayer, Larry Siemans, has felt that prayer is the most important thing we can do as Christians, but that there has not been sufficient training in this area, especially for new believers in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. As a result, from a biblical perspective the author tries to explain in layman’s terms the importance of prayer and the various aspects of prayer, including the outline Jesus Christ gave us.
Prayer was designed by God as a means of man communicating with God. The greatest thing anyone can do for God and for man is to pray. Individual lives, governments and nations rest upon the prayers of man.
In addition to explaining in detail the outline Jesus Christ gave us or what is commonly referred to as the Lord’s Prayer, the author discusses spending time in prayer, praying with purpose, intercession, different types of prayer, praying for others, etc.
This book is not a comprehensive study of every area of prayer, but it is intended to be an overview of major areas of prayer that the author believes are life-changing. It is a training manual for the person who has a desire to know more about the importance of prayer; and the person who possibly wants to become the person of prayer that God wants them to be.
