This book will increase your understanding of prayer, enrich your own prayers, and provide sound biblical knowledge of prayer. Relying on decades of research about prayer, Dr. McDowell has embarked on an ambitious, multi-volume project to study every prayer in the Bible. This volume contains readings for the 40+ prayers in Genesis through Joshua.
The book begins with an extensive introduction about studying the Bible and an overview of every type of prayer: praise, thanksgiving, petition, intercession, vow, confession, repentance, lament, blessing, and curse.
Each short chapter contains:

  • A study and devotional on each of the 40+ prayers in Genesis through Joshua
  • An examination of each prayer's historical context, meaning, and purpose
  • A practical application and devotional suggestion using each prayer as a model

The book is well-suited for either personal or group study and devotional.

From the Back Cover:

Do your prayers seem lifeless or ineffective? Do you find yourself not knowing what to pray? Or how to pray?

What better way to enrich your prayer life than to study the prayers in the Bible? This book takes the reader through every prayer, prayer teaching, or reference to prayer in Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua. Combining Bible study with practical application, each chapter explores the Bible's presentation of prayer.

The book begins with a general discussion of prayer, some ideas about how to approach biblical studies, and a description of the nine types of prayer. Then, each prayer passage is explored, beginning with the prayer itself, followed by a looks at its setting, context, and meaning. This deeper understanding of the passage leads to some ideas about what it teaches about prayer and how we can use it to enrich our own prayers.

Perfect for daily or weekly devotional or a Bible study about prayer for individual or group study. Includes an appendix and an index.
