The Essentials of Effective Prayer by Kay Arthur and David & BJ Lawson is a six week Bible study meant for small groups to enrich and enliven your prayer life. They are part of the 40 Minute Bible Study/No Homework series. The authors use several examples of prayer throughout the Bible to show readers how to worship, confess, and intercede through their own prayers. I loved how the Bible verses were in the margins of the pages so I didn't have to juggle my Bible and the book at the same time ...more

This book was very helpful and insightful. I felt like I was perfecting and understanding how to pray better and how The Lord intended us to pray. This 40 minute bible study plan worked great for me with my busy schedule, I practiced it both in a small group and alone and it works great either way. I liked this book very much and thought it was very educational and easy to understand. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to gain a better knowledge about effective prayer and learning passages ...more

I have never read a book or done a Bible study by Kay Arthur that I did not like. I think my favorite was Marriage Without Regrets. I always get so much out of her books and she breaks it down to the simplest form to understand complex principles.

Wow! What an excellent study of scripture on prayer. Having grown up in the church, I often heard about praying how to pray, what methods to follow and so forth. This study takes you straight to scripture to see the purpose of prayer. It takes you through God's model for prayer to understand each step ~ worship, declaration of allegiance, petition, confession and worship. Take the six days hours, days, weeks or even a full quarter and learn to pray effectively.

A great short and concise book on effective prayer. Lead this in my apartment building - only 6-7 of us. A good basic understanding of prayer and who we are as prayers.
