About the Book

If you are inquisitive about prayer or are dissatisfied with your prayer life, Prayer: God’s Invitation to Relationship can direct you toward contemporary and historical accounts that will show you how God’s kingdom grows as people pray, transforming individuals and situations. Through these explorations and a number of practical tools, you too can build a prayer habit and kick-start your prayer life.

In Prayer: God’s Invitation to Relationship, author Paul Holt explores individual prayer as a means of responding to God’s call to connect with Him as Father and Friend. Beginning with a review of Jesus’s instructions to his disciples about praying (“whenever you pray”), Holt draws upon a wide range of Christian source material to illustrate individual prayer as a means of building a relationship with God. He draws attention to the God who longs for his people to pray so that he can bring blessing. Four threads of our growing relationship through prayer are identified, including openness and honesty, attentive listening, partnership and transformation.
