Want More From Your Prayer Life?

If you're dissatisfied in your prayer life, wanting to be more consistent in prayer, or looking to deepen your intimacy with God, then this 8-week Bible study was written for you. It examines the prayers of eight biblical characters and teaches you how to pray like the prayer warriors who went before you. You'll study:

  • Jesus: A Model Prayer
  • Paul: A Prayer of Intercession
  • Job: A Prayer of Despair
  • Hannah: A Prayer of Longing
  • David: A Prayer of Lament
  • Asa: A Prayer of Seeking God
  • Jehoshaphat: A Prayer of Dependence
  • Nehemiah: A Prayer of Boldness

Follow in the footsteps of these spiritual giants and discover anew what our loving God does with a little faith and a whole lot of prayer. You'll love studying these scriptural prayers, like the prayer of Asa:

Then Asa called to the Lord his God and said, "Lord, there is no one besides You to help in the battle between the powerful and those who have no strength; so help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in You, and in Your name have come against this multitude. O Lord, You are our God; let not man prevail against You." (2 Chron. 14:11)
