Personally, for a long time, I made a lot of effort to improve my prayer life. (...) I thus ended up mastering a certain number of “techniques”. But I did not become the “great man of prayer” that I wanted to be. In fact, I think I was so preoccupied with the outward aspect of prayer that I ended up not praying at all, or at least not in an authentic way. In reality, the secret to a fulfilling prayer life has nothing to do with human skill or effort.

Far from proposing a method for better prayer, Tim Chester, in this pleasant to read work, brings us back to the simplicity of prayer according to the Bible. What he writes there is profoundly edifying. Faith is strengthened, the soul comforted.

A book to read... and live day after day!

Teacher at Acts 29 Oak Hill Academy , specializing in church planting, responsible for Grace Church in Yorkshire (central England), Tim Chester is the author of around thirty works, of which this is the first translated into French. He is married and the father of two children.
