Knowing who God is - his character, his plans and why he wants us to pray - are essentials in building our understanding of prayer. Douglas Kelly is a distinguished theologian - he is well qualified to guide us both as a teacher and a fellow traveller, sharing his own setbacks and blessings.
One of the biggest questions about prayer is not 'How do you do it?' but rather 'Do we know who we are speaking to?' It is written for the general reader and for those who find it difficult, in theory or practice, to reconcile our prayers with the sovereignty of God in providence and redemption. He deals with the issues in a way that informs our minds, warms our hearts and moves our wills. He writes with clarity and includes a wealth of memorable and often moving illustrations based on the Bible and personal experience.’
