“There is much instruction in the Bible’s plain teaching on the nature of praying, warnings about hypocritical praying, and the examples of the psalmists, the apostles, and our Lord Himself. After the way of salvation, the theme most common in Scripture is the nature of true praying” (Geoff Thomas in the “Foreword” to James W. Beeke and Joel R. Beeke’s Developing A Healthy Prayer Life, vii-viii).
