We don't need to be told that prayer is important. We know that an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father cannot be maintained if we don't talk to Him. Why, then, do we so often fail to do so? Jesus promises that if we pray, we will not faint. Why, then, do we find our lives so often filled with fainting, losing heart, discouragement, defeat? Ray Stedman show us the obvious answer: We have not been really praying. He guides us through Jesus' teachings on prayer in the Gospels and gives us a new sense of what talking with the Father is all about.
