Item Description...
Abraham's intercession, David's confession, Hannah's petition, Jacob's determination---Scripture sparkles with rich gems of Creator-creation dialogue. With theological depth and psychological insight, White examines 10 models of the open, honest communion our Lord desires from his people---and shows you how to come closer to a personal God. 220 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publishers Description
Prayers are windows--windows on eternity. Through the prayers in the Bible we look into the profoundest issues of life and death, and the deepest longings of our own hearts. And we learn about the God to whom we pray, the one who wants to talk with us, the one who takes the initiative in our relationship with him. In this classic book on prayer, John White helps us listen to Abraham plead for Sodom and Gomorrah. We watch Jacob wrestle with the Angel of the Lord. We hear David confess his sin. We also see him dance before the ark of the covenant. We hear Hannah ask for a child. Finally, John White shows how Jesus' prayers on the cross present a model for facing our last hours as well. The ten prayers in this book will take you near to the holy one of the universe, the personal God of each person in the world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Different Point of View on Prayer  Nov 21, 2005
Many books have been written concerning prayer, but this particular book does not deal with how to pray but deals with the consequences, or results, of those who took to heart praying to the Almighty God. As a result, they got their answers. This book helped look at prayer from a different angle. I am reading it again for the second time. That's how good the book really is. I highly recommend it.
A Must for Your Christian Library  Dec 8, 2003
I found it hard to make it through the first part of the book but after. I got to Hannah's prayer, a light clicked on. Daring To Draw Near helped me look at prayer differently. God is not a distant puppet master ignoring your prayers, but is a very real and present God, longing to hear from you.
A Life-Changing Book  Mar 29, 2001
This is, without question, the best book on prayer I have ever read. It has dramatically altered the way I pray, both in terms of what things I pray about, and what I expect from God during the exchange. John White is a masterful writer who does not shy away from pointing out what our personal weaknesses might be in our prayer lives. He speaks truth boldy. While reading this book I often felt convicted and saw the need for a transformation of how I pray. Daring to Draw Near will show how our prayers should be more God-centered than they probably are, and that they should be more focused on prayers for "our people" and our community. We are challenged to be honest in our prayers about who God really is and about who we are and what we think. If you read this book, your prayer life (and the rest of your life) will never be the same.
A fresh look at prayer  Aug 24, 1998
Much of the current attitude about prayer left me confused and discouraged, leading me to believe that prayer changes God and that I simply need to "pray harder" if I'm struggling. Mr. White's book, however, by looking at prayers recorded in the Bible, reaffirmed that our prayers are an important response to an unchanging God. Rather than taking a flippant view of the struggles behind some of these great prayers, he addressed them honestly and in context with other Scripture. Of course, it is good to have a clear understanding of prayer, but this book has played a role in my walk which has been even more important: it has encouraged me to pray more and more.
