When the disciples witnessed the power of prayer in Jesus’ life they wanted to pray like Him. Prayer was an integral component of Jesus Christ’s character and ministry. Through the Lord’s Prayer, Christ gave believers the secret to an effective and fruitful prayer life. Since prayer is a heartfelt communication between believers and God, knowing God as the Father and King transforms how we value prayer. The Lord’s Prayer is an invitation for all believers to savor at the revelation of God as our Father and King.

Edmond Sanganyado is an ardent blogger, addicted bookworm and apparently a writer. He lives in California with his stunning wife, two smart sons and a stressful load of graduate research.
If you are struggling in your prayer life, feeling parched for more of God, this is a terrifically simple guide that will open your eyes to many things-what God is to us, where we fit in His kingdom, the things He longs for us, and the way we can both hamper things in our humanness and learn to get that humanness out of the way more.
You longtime readers know me by my transparency. Any words I feed myself with I feel ought to be likewise.
What I appreciate in Sanganyado’s work here is the honesty, the frailties he admits to, the lack of some hyped up special formula or magic keys to the Kingdom of God.
In unassuming analysis, he brings us the Lord’s Prayer, several parables, and stories from an incredibly hard yet grace-filled life to speak to us on the significance of prayer and knowing God more.
