This comprehensive, yet not even complete list is provided for YOUR OWN faith adventure in prayer. Learning and growing in prayer is a life time experience, so don’t be overwhelmed, just begin; start somewhere and PRAY! Trust God to direct and help you cultivate your own prayer conversational behaviour and practice, individually and corporately. It’s His IDEA!

My own journey started with the influence of Becky Tirabassi, Stormie Omartian, E.M Bounds, Andrew Murray and Brother Andrew. Today my top five recommended authors on this subject would be Francis Frangipane, Bill Bright, Chuck Davis, Priscilla Shirer and Lettie Burd Cowman.

I have highlighted suggested titles to consider as a starting point if you don’t have a clue where to begin, even though each resource holds value. I also recommend exploring the ancient writings of people like E.M Bounds, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Corrie Ten Boom, and Hudson Taylor (not all represented below).

You can always ask your brothers and sisters in Christ what have been the most influential resources that helped them grow in prayer! Also be ready to share yours.

Listen long, listen deep as you inquire, hear and obey to know His voice and make Him known. Trust Him – he wants to talk with you more then you know!
