Prayer is the lifeblood of the Christian faith, but many of us struggle to make it part of our daily lives. We're intimidated, uncertain, and embarrassed about how to talk to God. Prayer feels quaint and old-fashioned to some of us and sacred and uncomfortable for others. We know it's important to pray, but we don't know how to weave it into the daily fabric of how we live.
In Pray First, bestselling author and pastor Chris Hodges addresses these issues by walking us through the fundamentals of prayer and the benefits that can be obtained by having daily interaction with God. He also explores several models of prayer that can be found in Scripture and discusses the power of prayer and fasting.
