“Who me, pray? I’m not good at public speaking or praying aloud.” Does this remind you of something you thought at a Bible study or friendly gathering when you were asked to lead the group in prayer?
You don’t have to feel this way again.
Who me, pray? is a practical guide on prayer, based on Jesus’ direction, with examples provided for use in typical situations where you might be asked or expected to pray, including: Prayer Before a Meal; Prayer Before an Athletic Contest; Prayer while Helping a Friend; and, Prayer in a Bible Study Setting.
While the Bible is the best place to learn about prayer, this guide is an encouragement for you to practice praying aloud, using the examples given, but in your own words.
Remember, God desires for you to experience the blessings of praying with others. Therefore, you will not be alone as you study Who me, pray? and practice your own prayers; after all, we have the Holy Spirit as our helper in relation to prayer.
This twenty-six page practical guide is for anyone who has been asked to offer a public prayer. Multiple examples and practice format establish the uniqueness of this helpful book on prayer for Christians. Using the “Lord’s Prayer” as a guide, the author shows how simple yet personal praying in public can be.
If Jesus is our friend, then why don’t we talk with Him more often? Perhaps it is because prayer, as practiced by many Christians, is a cold exercise rather than a warm conversation. Who me, pray? is a simple, down-to-earth guide that will help the ordinary Christian learn to talk with God in prayer. I recommend it.
