They are disillusioned by unanswered prayer and struggle to hear God’s response. With superficial or selective Bible knowledge as a foundation, faith in prayer becomes wishful thinking. This book takes the reader beyond those weak understand- ings into the heart of what the Bible actually teaches about prayer, placing profound theological truth back into the hands of the nontheologian. Tacklingtrickyquestionsthatmanyofushaveaboutprayerbut may be afraid to ask, Chris Band helps readers to examine their own ideas about who God is and how He relates to the world. This results in increasing confidence as expectations about prayer are reshaped to more accurately reflect God’s priorities and promises. “Some books on prayer simply exhort the reader to pray more. This book helpfully sets the question of prayer in the wider context of how God relates to the world. Do our prayers make any difference? Do they change God’s will or do they only change us? These and other such questions are discussed in an uncom- plicated fashion, without ducking the issues involved. A very practical book that is well worth reading.” — Tony Lane, professor of historical theology, London School of Theology Chris Band is a Baptist minister in Oxford and has studied at London School of Theology, Regent’s Park College, and the University of Oxford. He’s married to Breeze, with two lovely daughters, Petra and Tia, and enjoys reading, DIY, climbing, and photography. | 9 | HISTORY ISBN 978-0-85721-775-2 9 7 8 0 8 5 7 2 1 7 7 5 2 On My Knees Rebuilding Our Confidence in Prayer Chris Band Praying with Purpose 978-0-8254-3651-2 • $15.99 •  Written for a general Christian audience •  Illuminates the experience of the “pray-er” through inter- views with different people • Explores prayer and providence in an accessible way
