Exploring Prayer With
By Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001)
(Loyal pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana for over 42 years)
The Apostles on many occasions heard Jesus preach; yet they never asked Him, “Lord, teach us to preach.”
They heard Him teach, but there is no record of their saying, “Lord, teach us to teach.”
They saw Him heal the sick, but there is no record of their asking him, “Lord, teach us to heal.”
They saw Him raise the dead, still the waves, calm the storm, open blind eyes, unstop deaf ears and cast out demons, but there is no record of their ever asking Him to teach them how to do these things.
But when they heard Him pray, felt His compassion, saw His tears and witnessed the answers to His prayers, they said, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.”
Before entering into the truths found in this book, this author simply asks the reader to bow his head and pray, “Lord, teach me to pray.” May the Lord use this manuscript as a part of His answer to your prayer.
