Dear Friend

          Prayer is a subject about which many books have been written, Bible studies taught and sermons preached.  This speaks volumes of the great importance of prayer to the Christian.

          If we were to do a survey of the New Testament on this subject, we will notice that the focus of Jesus’ and the apostles’ teaching on prayer is mostly about why we should pray, who and what we should pray for, how we should approach God in prayer, and the assurance that God will indeed hear our prayers.  There are also encouraging Scriptures that call on Christians to persevere in prayer, implying that prayer is hard work and may even be discouraging at times.  

          We want to pray with the right motives, we certainly do not want to moralize prayer and use it legalistically as a measure of our devotion to God.  Instead of focusing on issues surrounding how often and long we need to pray to meet an arbitrary “standard”, we want to deepen your understanding of important issues that will strengthen your prayer life.  That is why we have prepared a book entitled The Lord’s Prayer by Pastor Kevin DeYoung to help you in this process. 

          In this book, the author examines Christ’s model for prayer, giving readers a deeper understanding of its content and meaning, and how it works in the lives of God’s people.  Walking us through the Lord’s Prayer word by word, Pastor DeYoung seeks to help believers gain the conviction to develop a stronger prayer life and a sense of freedom to do so.  So if you are looking for a resource to improve your prayer life, request for your free copy of The Lord’s Prayer.

          Once again, this month, if you are able, do consider a gift to support the ministry that we are engaged in.  Your gift means a great deal to us.  We are not supported by large churches or corporations.  We depend only on people like you – people who love God’s Word, who understand the impact it has on lives, and want to see us continue promoting sound teaching.  And more importantly, your willingness to give, tells us this ministry is bearing fruit in your life – a response of sacrificial giving is one mark of a fruitful ministry.  So thank you once again, in advance, for whatever you are able to do.  

    Love in the Truth,
