Life has a tendency to knock our confidence in prayer. In the face of persistent difficulties, our prayer-fuelled hopes can be overwhelmed by such despair that we end up "on our knees" not so much in prayer, as in defeat. In this honest and engaging book, Chris Band discusses the issues that we may have about prayer but were perhaps afraid to ask: Is prayer wasted effort? Is God less involved in the world than we might wish? Is his will going to be done anyway, whether or not we pray? We discover that our prayers, far from being squandered by God, are powerfully and consistently used by him - both to build his relationship with us and to build his Kingdom through us. On My Knees examines our understanding of who God is and how he works in the world, taking us beyond proof-texts and wishful thinking, to the heart of what the Bible actually teaches about prayer. This encouraging and practical book will inspire and lead each of us afresh, to be on our knees, in prayer.

myths that hinder our prayer life. Describing his book as an alternative prayer manual, Jeff offers a wealth of practical suggestions to help Christians of all ages and stages to develop a stronger one-on-one relationship with the Almighty. He is open about his own struggles in this area, and writes with clarity and compassion about an aspect of the life of faith that many of us find difficult. First published as How Not to Pray, this book is now revised and updated. Jeff says: The core message is the same, but ten years on I am writing from a different part of the wood. I am not sure I am wiser, but I am certainly more experienced – and continue to believe that if we get our prayer habits right, the rest of life is more likely to fall into place.

After the Lord's Supper with the disciples, Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray just before He was arrested and later crucified. By making this His last act even though He knew what was coming, He showed the importance of prayer, particularly during a time of great testing. If He needed to pray, how much more do His followers today need to make prayer a top priority in their lives.... God wants each individual to have a victorious life through prayer and communication with Him. Prayer can come directly from the heart of a believer, and it can be effective. But to have confidence in prayer, based on knowledge of the Word of God, the effectiveness is greatly increased. This book and the scriptures found in it are written/selected to bring understanding and confidence in prayer. It is also hoped that the believer will lose any feeling of awkwardness in prayer and will learn to let the prayers literally "flow" to God's Throne with full confidence and assurance that He hears and answers
