"Either we learn to cry out to an unseen Father who is ever present with us, or else we will lose heart; there are not other alternatives."
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? And why, when we do, don't we see the results we long for? 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, and defeat? Ray Stedman shows us the obvious answer: We have not been really praying.
Stedman 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. For Jesus, prayer was as necessary as breathing, the very breath of life itself. Talking with My Father invites us to learn the life-giving secrets of prayer from the Father's Son Himself.
