Let's Talk ... Praying Your Way to a Deeper Relationship with GodBill Crowder
Book Blurb:Why, in our times of deep spiritual and emotional turmoil, do we not turn to television pundits or to celebrities or to anyone else offering an opinion? Why do we pour out our souls to God in prayer? In Let's Talk, author and Bible teacher Bill Crowder reminds us that "Christ repeatedly retreated to the invisible presence of the Father."
Examining the significance of prayer in the lives of believers, this straightforward book encourages us to make prayer a priority. In its pages, we can find fresh viewpoints on the extraordinary privilege of prayer that present a clearer picture of who God is and why prayer is a vital part of an ongoing pursuit of a closer walk with God.
Let's Talk offers six perspectives on prayer:1) dependence because we need God desperately
2) rest in the hard work that is life
3) acceptance in whatever the outcome might be
4) intercession always in every opportunity for all
5) mystery in God's sovereignty, yet our prayers matter
6) confidence when torn between faith and doubt, belief and unbelief
Each chapter ends with a "Talking Together" section of discussion questions.

On Writing"For me, few things offer a more staggering privilege and responsibility than being allowed to write. While my first love in ministry will always be the spoken word, putting words on a page has a sense of permanence that words floating through the air don't offer."
