Publisher's Summary

God doesn't demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately, says top-selling author D. A. Carson. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. By following Paul's example, we can do the same. This book calls believers to reject superficiality and revolutionize their lives by embracing a God-guided approach to prayer.

Previously published as A Call to Spiritual Reformation, this book has now been updated to connect more effectively with contemporary listeners. A study guide, DVD, and leader's kit for the book are available through Lifeway and The Gospel Coalition.

a must listen for 2020!!!

this is a book that is needed for anyone wanting to grow in their relationship with God. I found it very helpful, insightful and easy to understand. that said, I did struggle through parts feeling guilty about the current state of my prayer life, yet I work through those feelings and learned some very good practicals that I will take with me for the rest of my journey.

Exceptional dissertation on Prayer

This audiobook was engaging and filled with helpful insights and guidance in the area of prayer and all of its components. I was deeply moved and helped by the organization, flow and subject matter being delivered by a true man of God.

Great Book

I enjoyed the book and the narration was done really well. It gave me a slightly different thought pattern on prayer. I live listening to books that stretch my faith and this did.

Devotional yet with solid Biblical explanations

Enjoyed the devotional and personal style of this book. It will be a great book to re-read and use as a small group study. Praying scriptures is a great way to enter into the Lord’s presence and bring glory to God!

It Is The Spiritual Wisdom We Need

This book should be leather bound and embossed with gold, it is that good. For those who have ears to hear. God bless. I have already purchased a hard copy for rereading and meditation.

Excellent

This was a great encouragement in both Paul’s form, circumstance, and motivation in going to prayer. The only downside to the audio version is not being able to underline passages for easy review later!

Fine reading but with a modest suggestion

Matthew McAuliffe reads great. The narration is wonderful. HOWEVER, somebody must have forgotten to teach him how to read poetry. It’s atrocious - he pauses at the end of every line, reading like a sing-song nursery rhyme. There are phrases in poetry that sometimes carry over to the next line, so you don’t stop at the end of the line. HELP!

Insightful, transforming and instructional and of course thought provoking

I have been deeply moved by Dr Carsons practical and helpful exposition of Pauls prayers. My only criticism is I couldn't get this in digital format on Kindle and went to another well known digital Christian format to download the book for further prayer and study. I perceive that this is not only a helpful listen but a book that needs deep thought and slow meditation , it's truths are well worth the effort . Perhaps in a year's time I shall come back to this review and share some lessons Ive learned in practice. My advice if you are serious about prayer is to taste and see
