What would you say if you were given one opportunity to talk to God face to face? Would you tell Him what you think about His world? Would you ask Him for forgiveness for everything you’ve done wrong? Or would you thank Him for sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins? Why not all three?
Everyone of us has thousands of opportunities every day to do just that, and yet sadly, few of us ever take the time to speak to Him. He’s there, waiting for us to talk to Him, but we have other things to take care of first. And when we do decide to cry out to Him, it’s usually rushed – like praying that He would help us ace our next test or to not punch out our coworker who keeps rambling about his new chair. Why do we not take a few minutes every day to calmly talk to the One who gave His Son to die for our sins? Could it be that we don’t know how?
Fortunately the Scriptures are replete with instructions on how to talk to Him. Virtually every major Bible character from Samson to Stephen has something to teach us about prayer, and we would be wise to listen to what they tell us. We should always be like the Apostles, who, after observing how important it was for Jesus to commune with His Father, begged that He would teach them also, saying, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

WHEN THE DISCIPLES WITNESSED the power of prayer in Jesus’ life they wanted to pray like Him. Prayer was an integral component of Jesus Christ’s character and ministry. Through the Lord’s Prayer, Christ gave believers the secret to an effective and fruitful prayer life. Since prayer is a heartfelt communication between believers and God, knowing God as the Father and King transforms how we value prayer. The Lord’s Prayer is an invitation for all believers to savor at the revelation of God as our Father and King.

From the Author
Christianity is littered with prayer cliché, prayer works, prayer changes things, PUSH – pray until something happens. We have the bumper stickers, have worn the T-shirt or bought the DVD, but did that transform your prayer? I will be lying if I say I have found the secret, I don’t.
After noticing my prayer life hitting a dry patch, I began questioning if I knew what prayer was. I believe God led me to Luke 11 and Matthew 6 there I discovered how knowing God revolutionize prayer. Our prayer life is energized not by knowing what, why or how we pray, rather through the knowing who we pray to.
The Secret Place is my new book focusing on how knowing God transforms prayer. The book explores the petitions listed in the Lord’s Prayer and the parables on prayer and the kingdom of heaven. My prayer is after, especially during, reading this book you will be moved to a deeper, intimate relationship with God.

Prayer moves heaven and earth!
˃˃˃ Do you not believe that?
Consider Elijah, whose prayers halted rain for more than three years. Or the believers of the early Church, whose prayers released the chains that bound Peter in prison. No special formulas were used to yield these results. These were just simple men and women like you and me, praying to an awesome God.
God still hears and does the impossible through the prayers of His people!
In this book, K.P. Yohannan will show you how significant of a role your prayers play on this earth, and you will learn the first steps of praying consistently and effectively.
We long for our children to be safe and secure in a dangerous world. We invest in security systems for our homes. We buckle our children into car seats. But are they safe? Are we missing something? What if prayer could make a difference?
In a world that is unsafe, God provides protection by giving us his equipment for security: the armor of God. Within the verses of Ephesians, we find everything our children need for their protection – truth, righteousness, faith, service, salvation, scripture, and prayer.
Betsy Duffey and Laurie Myers will guide you as you take these powerful verses and pray for God’s armor for your children.

When a water vessel is filled with dirt and stones, it cannot be used to quench a thirst. But, when this vessel is emptied, there is an opportunity to fill it until it overflows with fresh, cool, life-giving water. Water that quenches. Refreshes. Soothes.
Our souls are the same: filled with fear, doubt, and disappointment. Running over with unanswered prayers and lingering questions. When we empty the mess of our lives in the presence of God, we’re offered an invitation to come. An invitation that allows us to come empty – so that we can be filled until we overflow.
Come Empty – Pour Out Life’s Hurts and Receive God’s Healing Love guides you through fifty days of experiencing the fullness of God’s love and His ability to overcome life’s hurts. Each day, you will receive assurance of God’s presence in your difficult situations. Each devotion gives new vision and perspective when you’re hindered by emotional blind spots, and leads you to experience God’s peace and wholeness. When His invitation is accepted, He will set your captive mind and heart free to live fully by His grace. The question is not if you will get an invitation. The question is, will you come?
