Without a doubt, prayer is essential to every believer. It is the way to communicate with our Creator and will transform our lives. In 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18, Paul urges us to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
In An Expositon on Prayer: Igniting the Fuel to Flame our Communication with God, Dr. Jim Rosscup, a Bible teacher for over 50 years, has created an incredibly in-depth study of every single prayer in the Bible. There are introductions to each prayer and outlines to go with them. Each prayer is broken down to verse level, really digging deep into who, what, when, where, why, and how of the prayer.
As I read through it, the prayers and communication from other people in the Bible encouraged me to communicate with the One who loves me. It also gave me more details about the people described in the greatest book ever written.
These biblical insights will help you pray, while also giving you cross-references to learn more. I highly recommend it.
