Because counterfeit prayer abounds, we need Scripture's guidance, writes Thomas Constable. Praying as God desires requires considering what God has revealed about it. As we give prayer our careful attention, we gain greater understanding of what he intends it to be.
Constable details the different forms of communication God invites us to use. He identifies the counterfeits that pass for prayer, discusses the conditional nature of prayer, and explains why some prayers seem to go unanswered.

What People are Saying About This
"I could not think of a single aspect of prayer that 'Talking to God' does not address. Thomas Constable lays out for the reader the plain message of the Bible: God has ordained that we should pray, for our own good, and for that of his kingdom."
Duane Litfin, President, Wheaton College
"'Talking to God' contains all you ever wanted to know about prayer. The author doesn't hesitate to deal with the challenging issues involved in attempting communication between sinful man and a sovereign, all-knowing God."
Joseph Aldrich, former President, Multnomah College and Biblical Seminary
