Believers need to learn to pray about everything, but so many unanswered questions hinder our progress.

  • What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name?
  • How do I pray for my non-Christian friends?
  • When does the Holy Spirit pray for me?

In this book, a seasoned pastor and counselor answers these questions—and many more—by effectively instructing us with biblical principles, examples, and commands. By doing so, he encourages us to develop a life of prayer. Pastors, elders, and small group leaders will also find this book an indispensable help to cultivating an atmosphere of God-dependency in their local church.

Pray About Everything delivers an urgent call for believers to commit themselves to regular and systematic heartfelt prayer as an essential spiritual discipline for the Christian life.

Who should read this book?

  • Christians at varying stages of maturity
  • Small-group or prayer-group leaders
  • Preachers, ministers, Bible teachers
  • Worship leaders
  • Church prayer leaders

“This was a good info-packed, yet concise and easy-to-read book on prayer. It gave a good practicality to prayer which is important. It was presented in a gospel-centered way.

Reviewer: Peter Butler, Jr.
Rating: 5 Stars

“I can’t recommend this book enough. The Body of Christ today is malnourished and suffering from a lack of prayer in it’s spiritual diet. Pray About Everything is a gift to the Church and I am hoping.. I am praying that it will be picked up and read by a significant majority of the Church and through it, we might bring glory and honor to our Lord as we grow in grace and sanctification.”
Reviewer: Aaron Cerda
Rating: 5 Stars

“This book is far from a full-orbed treatment on prayer. But it is not intended to be so. Rather, the author intended to help the reader understand his/her dependency upon God and how that is manifested in prayer, not only in the individual’s life but also in the life of the larger church body. The book certainly accomplishes that task and is a wonderful resource for any believer to work through… As you work through the truths of this book, you will find yourself learning how to implement its principles into your prayer life for years to come.”
Reviewer: Zack Ford
Rating: 5 Stars
