The best book on prayer I have read Sep 13, 2006
Having been a Christian for many years I can honestly say I was unhappy with my prayer life until I read this book. There have been several books that I have read on prayer and all of them were good. However, I found this to be the best since it was both practical and nourshing at the same time. Clearly, Dr. Thrasher has lived what he wrote about. It is exhibited in a deep understanding of prayer that is both personal and biblical at the same time. Besides being an excellent read I have used it time and time again as a reference book to turn to when I need to learn again how to turn a particular situation into an opportunity for genuine prayer. I recommend it to anyone who desires to grow in their prayer life.
Passionate view of prayer Sep 11, 2005
I purchased this book for my wife. She has found it to be a tender, compassionate look into one's prayer life.
THIS BOOK IS FULL OF HELPFUL INSIGHTS FROM A MAN OF PRAYER! Jul 16, 2003
I know Dr. Bill Thrasher to be a man of impeccable character. Even more, I know him to be a man that walks and talks with his Heavenly Father. That's why this book is so helpful for those of us that want to see our prayer lives invigorated. Bill Thrasher brings his readers the dual blessing of a commitment to sound biblical teaching and vibrant personal experiences with God in prayer. The author will guide you through several "helps" in prayer, each a gracious provision of God to assist His children in communicating with Him. A section on the help of fasting is included--a rare topic among contemporary western Christians. I highly recommend this book for any follower of Christ that is looking to strengthen his or her pursuit of Him in prayer!
