Raised in a traditional church, Terry was taught the concept of prayer by reading and reciting other peoples’ prayers, most of which were written a long time ago. These canned prayers left her empty and as “connected” to God as reading a textbook could get her.
After deciding to follow Jesus almost 50 years ago, Terry longed for a closer relationship with God. She realized that prayer should be more than repeating someone else’s words. It should be more than a quick “Thank You, God” or a “I need something, God.” It needed to be more personal. And it needed to be a conversation.
She learned about how important it is to read her Bible, and learned to pray the scriptures. She’d read books on different types of prayer, but still she needed more. And she wanted to “pray right!” Deep inside, Terry knew it was prayer that would draw her closer to the intimate relationship with God that she longed for. This led her to a Biblical study about prayer, with special attention to what Jesus taught His disciples.
Though Terry never dreamed of becoming an author, what she learned about prayer through this study, changed her life. Her hope is that it will change yours, also.
