    They Knew How to Pray

    15 Secrets from the Prayer Lives of Bible Heroes

    One of the best ways to perfect any skill is to learn from a master, and prayer is no different. But where do you find skilled believers who will take you under their wings and mentor you?

    They Knew How to Pray invites you to study with masters of prayer from the Bible. These biblical heroes—including Joshua, Hannah, and Paul—will counsel you with their cries to God, ignite your faith with their spiritual passion, and mold your heart to God’s.

    Come, learn the power of prayer from those who knew how to pray.

    "There is an old saying, 'Prayer is more caught than taught.' In They Knew How to Pray, Tom Carter gives us . . . sound teaching that catches the wisdom and insight of those who call upon God in the Bible. There is much to gain here for small groups, Bible classes, or personal study."

    —Dana Olson
    Director, Prayer First, Baptist General Conference

    "This book is solidly biblical, inspiring, . . . very easy to read, and loaded with relevant examples from history and contemporary life. Read this, and learn to do the most important thing you will do: pray!"
