In this bestselling 28?day study (more than 450,000 copies sold), Kay provides intensely practical insights to help you know how to pray, what to pray, and what to expect when you pray. Thankfully, Jesus gave His disciples the perfect pattern for meaningful prayer. I ...more

I appreciate being given guidelines, an outline, indexes on how to pray, what I ought to be thinking about and allowing God to speak to me through prayers. I loved the insight & illumination I obtained in reading this book. Page 47 Names of God is now memorized along with Mat 6:9-13! This is good for everyone that wants to strengthen their walk with Jesus. Jesus prayed all the time for all things. Go & do likewise!

Enjoyed reading this over 28 days. Really helps the reader to understand the power of prayer and why Jesus gave us a powerful index on how we should pray. It is important to ask God for our daily bread and that it come from him, not from our own efforts. When we ask him directly, he clears the way for our future in his service. Lot's more to write about here, but limited in time. Read for yourself.
I was unable to separate her writing style from the substance of what she was saying. Her voice as an author was just too intrustive for me - down to telling me how and when to annotate my own Bible? I don't think so.
This book can definitely help with your prayer life, esp. if you don't know what to say or where to start. (Or if you've ever wondered how people could possibly pray for more than a few minutes. Or if your prayer just sounds like a list of requests.)

The book is based entirely on the Lord's Prayer. According to the author, it shouldn't be used as a prayer itself, but rather as instructions for how a prayer should be set up.

I didn't realize the set-up of the book when I started. First, I was tryin

Kay Arthur is obviously diligent and Spirit guided in her Bible reading. Very Informative and enlightening! I loved the book. I love Kay Arthur's teaching style. I followed along with her instructions on marking my Bible, and was able to understand her points more clearly. I learned more than I knew I needed to learn. It was very needed in my life, and I highly recommend the book, not just to strengthen prayer, but to re-evaluate and strengthen one's own relationship with God.

Great, quick study on praying
Karen Klein
Awesome study!
Of all the Bible Studies I've gone through (a whooping three) this one is the most impressive. It's scripture references were applicable, vast, and thought-provoking.

But I still have to say, it's hard to beat just getting into a good Bible with a great topical guide.

In my search for strengthening my relationship with God, I found this book and wanted to build my skills to pray. I made it through page 40, then life got in the way. I'm sure I didn't even make it to the 28 days! But I will, in God's perfect timing...
I thoroughly enjoyed this Bible study. It made a huge difference in my marriage. It finally dawned on me that I am to submit to my husband, not because he deserves it, but because God, my Father, Jesus, my Savior asked me to... out of obedience to Him.

Loved,loved, loved this! Changed my prayer life for good. Now I understand why and what I say in the Lord's prayer. This has forever changed me, and I love her complete use of the changing!

This was a wonderful book! This has helped me so so much and taught me to grow int faith! I would love to teach this ! Fantastic! I m learning the inductive method and it has opened my understanding up so much !

I found this book to be incredibly helpful as a new Christian. The exercises really make you think and if you follow them word for word you will get the a lot out of this book.
This was an excellent study on prayer. Kay Arthur does a great job once again. Her Precept upon Precept Studies are very solid too!
I am no better at praying now than I was before I read it. Didn't learn enough in the 28 days to justify reading it.
Challenging and life changing book and a whole new take on the Lord's Prayer. Fantastic.
4.5 stars. Did this with an online Precept study group 4 or 5 years ago
I read this at age 13 and benefitted a lot spiritually.
Great book ... but you still have to DO IT.
