It offers irresistible beauty as a portal to prayer for the regular worshipper; and for those who feel a little alienated from God, it is an indispensable path to harmony and tranquility.

John MacArthur's skills in communicating the central message of the Holy Scripture are not limited to his sermons and popular commentaries. In this beautifully designed book the photography of Dennis Frates is joined with John's passion for expressing deep love for God in prayer. Some question the wisdom of using a book of written prayers but these particular prayers demonstrate that there is still an important place for well-written prayers. This book meets a clear need that many Christians have for explicit help in prayer.”

Nearly 20 years ago I belonged to Grace Community and I loved Pastor MacArthur's lengthy pastoral prayers. If you're looking for solid biblical truth expressed in prayers and accompanied by gorgeous photos and captivating quotes, you'll love The Majesty of Prayer. I'll be buying a couple of copies for Christmas presents.
