And provides us with an example of how to pray. Taking Paul's specific prayers outlined in the epistles, Jonathan Graf encourages us to study these prayers and then to use them as the basis of our prayers.
In particular, Paul's prayers were very other-peopled focused and is a great reminder to us to be constant in our prayers for the saints, our own church, for those who don't know Jesus and unity, to name just a handful. Graf provides specific prayers to pray having written a short page devotional on one of Paul's prayers together with the Scripture reference. A very useful addition to one's prayer arsenal.

This is sure to challenge your theology with Biblical perspective-short book, I highly recommend. Tremendously thought provoking and clarified my understanding of who God is, and what He wants to do with all of us in this life! I was truly thrilled to find this book and the insight it gives into praying to bring my life in line with God's plan for me.
Jonathan Graf looks at the things the Apostle Paul prayed for those under his care, and then offers suggestions on how we should pray for our loved ones. After all, his epistles make up a massive chunk of the New Testament, the earliest documents we have of the church. As the old hymn “Balm in Gilead” puts it, “If you cannot preach like Peter, if you cannot pray like Paul, you can tell the love of Jesus and say he died for.
I'm in my 70's and I had began to feel I was no longer able to serve God as I had in my younger years. This book led me into new resolve and brings joy to my life. This book has changed the way I pray. If you want to pray in a way that has eternal significance this book is for you. A really special life long book. See all 11 reviews.

We need to learn not to just recite prayers we've said a thousand times. We need to learn prayer is more than just pretty words. We need to learn to pray, not in our own self-sufficiency, but in our need, and totally dependant on God. There is no place for pride in our prayers.

Paul, and other members of the early church, prayed with fasting when they were seeking God's will. Their prayers required some effort and concentration on their part. Let me ask you, has your mind ever wandered in the middle of your prayers? I admit, I'm guilty of this at times! Too many times, we make so little effort, or our mind wanders, or we fall asleep in the middle of our prayers. How can we understand God's will in some matter if we fall asleep or aren't paying attention? Fasting is a very real way to draw us closer to God. Paul prayed and sang praises to God even in the worst possible circumstances , even when there didn't seem to be any hope.
A new Christian or one who is weak in the faith may turn away from God in the midst of their troubles. How often have we heard someone say, or perhaps even said ourselves, "I prayed, but God didn't answer my prayer"?
Many others will continue to pray in the midst of their difficulties, but to sing praises to God? They can't even imagine doing such a thing! They think, "Why on earth would I want to praise God for the trouble I'm facing? He is in control of our circumstances, and nothing is going to happen that our Almighty God cannot turn into our good and His glory! Paul asked others to pray for him.
Often Paul wrote to the churches, asking them to pray for him and his fellow workers. A lot of times, we fail to ask others to pray for us. Sometimes, it's a matter of pride: We don't want to admit our own weaknesses, or those of our family members. We fail to realize that the very things we are trying to hide are the things that most need to be brought to the Lord! Paul wan't afraid to admit his weaknesses and his needs, and we shouldn't be, either.
Other times, we thinks it's too small a matter to ask others to pray for. But Jesus himself tells us in Matt. God loves us, and He cares about even the little details! How wrong it is for us to think that anything is too small to ask for prayer about! We need to be careful, though, that our requests for prayer do not continually focus on ourselves, or become just a self-centered "wish list". And don't forget that Paul always included his fellow workers in his requests for prayer.
We need to do the same. We should always be certain to lift up our Pastor, and his wife, as well. Let me ask you, what do you do when you have a personal problem, or a problem with somebody in the church? Who do you vent to when things aren't going well, and you feel like you want to scream? Usually we all have at least one person we can go to with any sort of difficulty we may face.
But who can the preacher talk to, when things are going wrong, or there's a problem of some kind in the church? Who can his wife talk to when she has problems? The burdens of the entire church rest on their shoulders. They are people, too, you know, and they have the same aggravations, frustrations, and irritations that we do, only multiplied by about times or however many church members we have!
