Much of what passes for “prayer” these days is either geared to the heretical health and wealth gospel or is drowning in neo-Gnostic babel. Subjectivism, emotionalism, and narcissism dominate such thinking and have no place at the evangelical table.
R.C. Sproul brings clarity to the subject of prayer in his book, The Prayer of the Lord. Dr. Sproul guides readers through the Lord’s prayer in a way that we have grown accustomed to for over 40 years. Sprouls’ treatment is practical and deeply theological. He counters some of the erroneous arguments that are set forth concerning prayer and sets forth the crucial principles for maintaining a vigorous prayer life.
Sproul’s work is a terrific place for new believers to start and will serve as an encouragement for seasoned Christians as well.
