Publishers Description "They Knew How to Pray," invites you to listen to the prayers of fifteen biblical characters of prayer and gives you the chance to be mentored by these prayer warriors.
From Publishers Weekly Carter, a California pastor and author, gleans insights about prayer from 14
men and one woman from the Old and New Testaments. Included are the usual
suspects, such as Abraham, David, Samuel and Paul, as well as a few choices
that are refreshing for being relatively unsung (Gideon, Hannah and Nehemiah).
Non-evangelical readers may be put off by some of the persistent jargon in the
book, and much of its content is derivative. For example, the idea that Abraham
is chiefly known for being "God's friend" seems borrowed from Henry Blackaby's
"Created to Be God's Friend," but Blackaby is not cited. What the book lacks in
originality it at least partially compensates for in being user-friendly; each
chapter is followed by a study guide that presents relevant Scripture passages
and questions for personal reflection or group discussion. (May) Copyright

Good for small groups Sep 9, 2003
There is an old saying, "Prayer is more caught than taught." In THEY KNEW HOW TO PRAY, Tom Carter gives us sound teaching that catches the wisdom and insight of those who call upon God in the Bible. There is much to gain here for small groups, Bible classes, or personal study. --Dana Olson, Director, Prayer First, Baptist General Conference
Good for my Bible study group Jul 30, 2003
I taught "They Knew How to Pray" to my women's Bible study group at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church. The women loved it and found in each chapter great comfort and inspiration to pray. I especially liked the final chapter, "Your Prayer Life," because it addressed my needs the best. But I also loved the chapter on the prayer life of Samuel, which is called, "Practice a Ministry of Prayer." I highly recommend this book to a small or large group Bible study, or even to someone who wants to use it for personal daily devotion.
