What does the word "prayer" make you think of? A religious activity for old people and vicars? A weird superstitious ritual? A moment of desperation? Or perhaps a heavy sense of duty - something that we ought, and struggle, to do.
Confusion reigns. Yet, at one time or another, just about everyone prays. In moments of terror even atheists may cry out to the God they don't believe in. Most of us pray, but often as though we're shooting in the dark.
Wonderfully, the Bible - and Jesus especially - shows us what real prayer is: talking ... to the real, living God ... in a way that he chooses to hear and answer.
This Good Book Guide looks at what the Christian message tells us about "connecting" with God - how and why we can talk to God knowing that he will listen and respond. Forget formulas and techniques. This is about real communication with the real God - the unique Christian privilege of real prayer.
