Recommended & in the Knox Library: “Praying Backwards: Transform Your Prayer Life by Beginning in Jesus’ Name” by Bryan Chapell
Christians often say, “In Jesus’ name” to close their prayers. But is this truly a desire of the heart or a perfunctory “Yours Truly” to God? Bryan Chapell says we should begin our prayers in Jesus’ name-we should be Praying Backwards. In this practical and inspiring book, he shows readers that to truly pray in Jesus’ name is to reorder one’s priorities in prayer-and in life-away from oneself and towards Jesus and his kingdom. It is to pray believing in the power and the goodness of the One who hears, and thus to pray boldly, expectantly, and persistently.
Readers seeking to transform their prayer lives will find wonderful direction in Praying Backwards.
