“You may be thinking, ‘not another book on prayer’; so was I. What I found was a book that challenged how I pray and what I pray for. That was a refreshing reminder of the fundamentals of prayer and the end focus of glorifying God, however he chooses to answer our prayers. Whether you’ve read a lot of books on prayer or none, this is well worth the read.”–Charmaine Muir, Minister for Workplace, All Souls, Langham Place, LondonSee All

“Enjoyment and prayer are words that are not normally associated together, but after reading You Can Pray you will not be able to separate them! Tim’s book is full of helpul insights into how we should pray, why we should pray, and what we should pray. It’s simple to read, yet not simplistic, as it engages deeply with the biblical text and also with contemporary issues.

This book is not about the steps you can take to become a great pray-er. The message of this book is that you already are a great pray-er in Christ. Through Christ, you can pray.
Tim Chester shows us how we become great prayers who pray great prayers simply through knowing three foundational truths about God:
- God the Father loves to hear us pray
- God the Son makes every prayer pleasing
- God the Holy Spirit helps us as we pray.
When these truths are in place, we discover why prayer is easy, why prayer is difficult, and the arguments and priorities of prayer. Prayer is like a child’s asking her father for help—and that’s not beyond any of us. Here you will find the grace and encouragement to talk with your heavenly Father every day.
