A Big Disappointment Mar 21, 2007
My wife and started this book February 1st to pray the entire month, that is 28 days. We did keep our word and still pray nightly, however we were never able to finish the book. It was that bad,a big disappointment to both of us. Kay kept repeating her self and concerning the scriptures when we looked them up we just could not agree or see her point of view. I apologize for no specifics but you see we got rid of it and just went to the word ourselves. There are better books on the "Lord's Prayer" available. Larry Lea wrote a book years ago concerning the pattern the Lord spoke about and people still use it today. I have found that it is more about our relationship with the Lord than anything else. To me a better book on prayer would be "Hearing God's voice" by Mark and Pattie Virkler or concerning intercession alone Jim Goll's book "The Art of Intercession." I gave Kay's book two stars because I did like the first few chapters.
"Right up there with 'God, Help me Pray!', but they are totally different books on the subject" Sep 3, 2006
Hmmm...Perhaps I was hoping for a more complete instruction guide on prayer, or maybe discussion on all the scriptural aspects of prayer. I love Kay, and this is a good book, but for me--it's a bit narrow in scope.
She takes the Lord's Prayer (so-called--John 17 is the real Lord's Prayer!), and dissects it nicely. But that prayer is too brief to cover every aspect of the subject.
I found "God, Help Me Pray!" (hard to locate) to be much more thorough and even a quicker read. This author does not 'hold your hand' like Kay does though.
Depending on what you're looking for, Kay's book, or the other one, will teach you about praying. I wanted a more complete discussion of every aspect of prayer and did not really need the hand-holding, so I prefer "God, Help Me Pray!", but both should be at the top of your short list.
Good study of prayer! Very helpful. Aug 7, 2002
This short Bible study delivers exactly what it offers, applicable teaching on prayer. It's an excellent study for anyone, but if you have teenagers, get them into this foundational material. Focused on the Lord's Prayer (or as some call it, the Disciple's Prayer), Kay teaches on glorifying God, confessing our sins, and submitting to His will through our daily prayers. She uses Scripture almost exclusively to direct your thoughts through the study--that's the inductive method. One of the best!
Wonderful for instruction in prayer Jan 17, 2001
I have had trouble with daily prayer & a daily quiet time the past couple of years. I pulled this book off the shelf and was determined to revitalized my prayer life. Every morning I read a short section from the book, writing down the scriptures, taking notes. Then I write my prayer for the day - incorporating what I've learned from the book with my "usual" prayer.
This has kick-started my desire to pray. It has reminded me that the Lord's prayer is the perfect model of how to pray. I am including more elements in my prayer than just "help me & my friends" petitions.
I like Kay Arthur's personal approach. She is solid biblically, but she doesn't come off sounding like a Bible scholar. She sounds like a loving, mature friend in the church who comes to meet with you daily and remind you how much our Lord wants to meet with us in prayer. She gently shows us scriptures about prayer and asks us questions that make us think about those scriptures and prayer.
Lastly, I just felt guilty when I looked through books that told me I wasn't really serving God unless I was spending an hour a day in prayer. Now I've found myself praying longer and longer - sometimes having an hour-long quiet time but out of love for God, not out of guilt or duty.
The Lord's Prayer Mar 31, 2000
This is a good book for new christians or someone looking for some direction in their prayer life. Arthur goes through the Lord's prayer and interprets its principles. She does a great job of interpreting through scripture and meditation. The book is best suited for a bible study group. It is very interactive and makes you think. A good, solid book on prayer.
