New Book: You Can Pray

Today sees the launch of my latest book, You Can Pray – a title which so effectively summarises the book that it doesn’t have a subtitle. It is published by IVP.

Here’s the blurb …

If you’re easily distracted when praying, you’re not alone. In fact, if you struggle to pray in the first place, that’s not unusual either. Tim Chester tells us how we can be great pray-ers. And he admits that that’s a really bold claim.

‘The secret of great praying has nothing to do with human effort or skill,’ he explains. ‘Lots of people would like to think that it does because they want to make prayer an achievement.’ But the secret of great praying is …
Knowing three things about God:

  • That God the Father loves to hear us pray
  • That God the Son makes every prayer pleasing to God
  • That God the Holy Spirit helps us as we pray

Tim looks at: why prayer is easy (how we pray), why prayer is difficult (why we pray) and the arguments and priorities of prayer (what we pray). Prayer is a child asking her father for help. And that’s not beyond any one of us.

I’ll post some of the commendations in a future post.

You Can Pray is available from amazon.com in the US and thinkivp elsewhere.
