Christians often say, qIn Jesus' nameq to close their prayers. But is this truly a desire of the heart or a perfunctory qYours Trulyq to God? Bryan Chapell says we should begin our prayers in Jesus' name-we should be Praying Backwards. In this practical and inspiring book, he shows readers that to truly pray in Jesus' name is to reorder one's priorities in prayer-and in life-away from oneself and towards Jesus and his kingdom. It is to pray believing in the power and the goodness of the One who hears, and thus to pray boldly, expectantly, and persistently. Readers seeking to transform their prayer lives will find wonderful direction in Praying Backwards.But it happened again!aquot;-Calvin Miller, author; professor, Beeson Divinity School aquot;Finally, here is a book on prayer that puts the person of our Lord before the petitions on our lists.
