How Prayer Impacts Lives
41 Christians and their Conversations with God
Author Catherine MacKenzie has gathered the testimonies of 41 different people, with highly varied backgrounds, to share what prayer means to them! Common threads run through the chapters but each testimony on the subject is quite personal. A wonderfully biographical book which highlights on their prayer lives!
Contributors include: David Robertson, Dorothy Paterson, John Piper, Steve Brady and Wallace Benn, and more, sharing how their communion with God has strengthened and sustained them.

“Yes, He does meet needs and answer our petitions; and prayer is the tool for responding to that provision with a heart of gratitude.”
