Publisher's Summary

Embrace the Lord's pattern for prayer. God longs for us to spend time with Him. Yet while His invitation is extravagant, too often we struggle to spend even brief moments with our Heavenly Father. For some, action has replaced prayer. For others, requests can take priority over relationship, as we try to mold God to our desires. How did the simple act of prayer become so complicated? Renowned pastor and author John MacArthur invites you to experience the art of prayer. Here John turns to our greatest spiritual mentor, Jesus Christ, as he takes an intimate, in-depth look at the Lord’s Prayer. Filled with fresh insights and practical tools for growth, Alone with God will help you rediscover the power and passion found in time spent with God. Alone with God includes a guide for both personal and group study, which features discovery questions, suggestions for prayer, and activities, all designed to connect life-changing truths with everyday living.

My Prayer Life is Renewed

I purchased this book to get a new perspective on my prayer life. I'd been feeling like I my prayers were becoming redundant and lacked passion. They were losing their authenticity. From the get go, this book helped me break down my prayers and showed me very clearly why my passion was fleeting.

I realized very quickly that although I pray several times a day, I've never prayed for Christ to return quickly. I also was not praying for leaders in my church, community, and country. Such as "Lord, let your Will be fulfilled in these chosen leaders". In short, I needed to pray more for what God wanted. My prayers weren't selfish. They centered mostly on others, but my prayer scope was very small and wasn't furthering the Kingdom.

The author broke prayer down into categories based on the "Lord's Prayer" and I was able to quickly identify what was missing from my prayers. More importantly, I was able to apply the lessons I learned. My prayer life is now more passionate and God centered. I'm getting ready to listen to it again.

Excellent read and study for believers!

Where does Alone With God rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have read a few John MacArthur books now, and love his way of speaking God's word. The narrator voice was also excellent. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is seeking a closer relationship to God!

Excellent conceptual guide to prayer

I had almost written John MacArthur off due to another book he wrote about forgiveness. The topic was approached with such a judgmental attitude that it turned me off. I decided to give him another chance with this book because I love to read about prayer and because Maurice England is one of my favorite narrators.

I was pleasantly surprised that MacArthur did such a magnificent job of presenting prayer conceptually rather than theoretically or as some sort of a step-by-step program as most authors approached it. He begins with the concept that God is always near to us, with us, and wants to hear from us. As simple as that idea may be to grasp theoretically, MacArthur did a beautiful job of making it very real to the listener. He then moves on to deal with various topics such as constant prayer, the use and abuse of memorized prayers, and the use of God's names in prayer. He does a good job of breaking things down and defining terms that other authors tend to skip over. For example, he doesn't just exhort the listener to be in constant prayer, he explains what constant prayer is and what it isn't.

I will listen to this one again, and I will consider it to be one of my more valuable resources on prayer. It would be a good book for anyone who is new to prayer or for people who have years of experience.

Great book; questionable Narrator

I reading this book while listening along with the Audible version and the Narrator takes some pretty major liberties with the text. It's been a while since I listened to it, but the changes were things like taking the word 'for' and changing it to 'but', which changed the whole meaning of the sentence. That and every scripture reference was changed to the KJV, which, as far as I can remember, did not effect the overall meaning usually but, again, didn't hold true to the text he was supposed to be reading.

He does, however, have a clear southern draw that makes him easier to listen to...unless you don't like southern accents I suppose...

Great discussion on prayer but beware of Calvinism

Really enjoyed and appreciated this book very much. It was excellent walking through the points of the Lords prayer. Helped me a great deal in regards to prayer. But I was disappointed with the last chapter as it was heavy on Calvinism. I felt it was unnecessary and forced.

for disciplinary action of. Spiritual. desire from myself to become Free in Christ , to my understanding of this tterm, to be Free in Christ means : to be no longer needing to do my jo
not needing the supervission to become and do
what My God wants me to be and do by being And speaking Meek, holding back the headache, in return, not repaying a headach for a headach
