Approaching the Almighty
Discover the never-before-published prayers of A. W. Tozer as he opens his sermons.
Is there a holier moment than when a preacher steps into the pulpit and opens the Scriptures before the people of the Lord? A. W. Tozer certainly understood the gravity and sanctity of that moment. His pulpit prayers reflect the holy awe that he experienced as he stood before God and the gathered congregation.
Although Tozer fans are familiar with his writings and sermons, now for the first time, Approaching the Almighty collects the prayers that Tozer offered as he stepped into the pulpit to preach. Phil Shappard, a Moody Radio manager whose job was to remaster the audiotapes of Tozer's sermons, has collected and transcribed almost two hundred prayers that reveal the great preacher's intimate walk with God.
The path to a rich prayer life is to pray alongside others whose faith is deep. Let Tozer's pulpit prayers guide your own heart in its steadfast pursuit of God.
Kingdom Prayer by Dr. Tony Evans
If you want to know the temperature of your spiritual life, look at the thermostat setting on your prayer life.
Prayer is the most misunderstood and neglected aspect of the Christian life. It has been estimated that most Christians pray three to five minutes a day. Compare that to the time many spend complaining, and you'll gain insight into the spiritual and emotional condition of our day.
Yet God has constructed the world in such a way that there is much He won't do in a Christian's life apart from prayer. Prayer, when combined with faith, can accomplish great things.
In this practical and comprehensive overview of prayer, Tony Evans covers a variety of topics, including:
Tony's expositions of various passages on prayer will help you realize its critical importance and encourage you to make it a dominant mark of your life.
Prayer from A.W. Tozer
Tozer understood prayer as few do: as a way of life. Now readers can share that same grand vision. Prayer combines the best of Tozer on prayer into one volume. Tozer was captured by the great wonder of God, and he regarded prayer as the primary means of coming into His presence. But if our everyday life is filled with the barrenness of busyness and there is no serious urgency to pray, we forfeit the wonder of being conformed to the image of Christ and knowing our God more intimately—the true Christian life. Prayer is doable. God is accessible. And Tozer provides the wisdom and encouragement to help us encounter Him daily. With commentary and reflection questions provided by compiler W.L. Seaver, Prayer takes our understanding of prayer to new depths and helps us have a life that prays.
