Prayer is a critical aspect of growing in a relationship with God. In his new eBook on prayer, Pastor Aycock guides the reader through what he terms “this country called prayer.” His hope is that through this book, Christians would become more effective at talking with God, something he feels to be lacking among many Christians today. A Gallup poll several years ago revealed that over 75 percent of Americans pray, while less than 25 percent regularly attend worship services.(1) This is an indication that regardless of peoples’ lack of outward religiosity, they still reach out to God in prayer. Most people are seeking the truth and want to know that their lives have meaning. In genuine prayer, we contact God Himself as Truth and discover that there is indeed a purpose for our lives.
The starting point of genuine prayer, Aycock says, is a desire to reach out to God--to know Him, not to get things from Him. Ask Him to teach you how to pray, as Jesus’ disciples did.
“And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray…” – LUKE 11:1
If you are seeking to find God in prayer, desiring to know Him better, this eBook provides inspiration and incentive for you to begin to strengthen and grow in your prayer life.
