Here’s a description from the author…
“This book was born out of my own struggle to establish a meaningful, dynamic, genuine prayer life. If you do not have a daily prayer time, or are struggling to maintain one, I have written this book for you. I have also written in order to cast a vision for an approach to prayer that is different than the petition/intercessory-laden prayer so common in our churches today. It is also a challenge to leave behind the “pray-as-you-go” approach to prayer in favor of a meaningful, genuine, daily, dynamic prayer life.
“The genuine prayer life is dynamic—marked by energy and progress! It is alive! It requires an outlay of energy, introspection, and a willingness to be searched out by the Holy Spirit of God! It requires tenacity to press through our own flesh, and a heart that desperately desires not to be desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9)! It requires a fresh approach every day because it is the pursuit and cultivation of a relationship!
“In the end, the goal of Contending for the Habit of Daily Prayer is to lift up a fresh vision for daily prayer and to help the reader make and maintain a commitment to it. I am convinced that your life will be transformed as you enter into the genuine prayer life just as I am convinced that that this book, when used to its fullest potential, can help you enter in to just such a life.”
