“Do you wish you were a better prayer?”
Pose this question to any believer and the answer would likely be a resounding “yes!” While a strong prayer life is the desire of many believers, the reality is often difficult to come by.
In Prayer Coach, James L. Nicodem begins with a frank discussion about the obstacles of prayer and then offers practical suggestions and basic principles on how readers can strengthen their prayer lives and bring depth to this spiritual discipline. As readers apply the methods taught in this book, they will learn to approach the throne of God with passion, fervency, and confidence.
