Prayer is a force like the power of earth’s mightiest dynamite. So why don’t we see more of that dynamite exploding in our world today?
Maybe we’re not praying enough. Maybe we’re not praying as we should.
In Reaching the Ear of God, Wayne Mack motivates us to pray more than we have before. “I have yet to meet people who would say that they pray as much as they think they should,” Mack writes. And he shows us how to pray more as Jesus prayed. “I want us to learn from history’s greatest prayer expert,” he writes.
