When I see a book on prayer, it is usually and immediately followed with the Spirit’s conviction. I consider how long it has been since I last prayed or how shortsighted and local they have been. I feel overwhelmed with guilt and rightly so. I don’t usually buy that book. I, instead, veer towards the theology section to catch up on the latest arguments for God’s complete sovereignty in salvation. It is not that there is a lack of desire to learn to pray, but if only reading the title of a book on prayer convicts me then what will reading it in full do?
