Learning to Pray like Paul

God doesn't demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; he only wants his people to know him more intimately. The apostle Paul found that spiritual closeness in his own fellowship with the Father. Praying with Paul calls believers to reject superficiality and revolutionize their lives by embracing a God-guided approach to prayer. By following Paul's life-shaping principles, we can hear God speak to us today.

"Carson shows how the apostle Paul kept eternal values at the center of prayer. . . . [This book] is a manifesto for profound, other-centered, God-guided praying. Such prayer is not caught up in the tyranny of the urgent but the urgency of the eternal."
--Christianity Today

"The greatest need for churches today is not education, evangelism, or programs but a deeper knowledge of God. [This] book contributes to filling that need by assisting those who read it to a fuller life of prayer."
--Review and Expositor

"This work is one of the best recent efforts that integrate biblical praying with the whole Christian life."
--Master's Seminary Journal

"The reader is guided, gently yet persuasively, towards a reformation in personal dealings with God. This excellent and timely book can be heartily commended."
--The Banner of Truth

A study guide, DVD, and leader's kit for Praying with Paul are available through The Gospel Coalition (
