Christians often feel inadequate or inferior when it comes to prayer. This DVD aims to give every Christian a simple, Biblical look at what prayer really is – and how simple it is. We take example upon example from Scripture to see how Jesus and the biblical saints have prayed – to encourage everybody who hasn't yet started, to get going!
