Sometimes we're blind in our prayers. Mary Magdalene was weeping at the tomb, asking for the dead body of Jesus. Whom was she asking? Jesus Himself, yet she did not know it. In his matchless way, Oswald Chambers reflects on the truth and the enormous power of prayer.
From the Back Cover
Prayer changes things, we say. Oswald Chambers would modify that phrase to prayer changes me, and then I change things.
In this small but powerful book on prayer, Chambers reveals the key problem with the way many of us pray today. That is, we focus our prayers on ourselves instead of on God. The purpose of prayer is not to get healed, get a job, get our house sold, or get whatever else we want. It is to get the life of God in us.
Our me-centered culture has infiltrated our prayer life. We suffer from what Chambers calls a disease of the nerves taking a spiritual twist. Our relative affluence has left us foolishly self-sufficient and complacent. If our only reason to pray is for our own needs, and if we are pretty well meeting our own needs, why pray?
Chambers tells us why. He shows us what we are missing when we don't have the life of God in us.
