Synopsis

Francis and Edith Schaeffer founded L’Abri Fellowship in Switzerland to demonstrate the reality of God through prayer and honest answers to honest questions. God so blessed their work that they began writing their many books. Edith Schaeffer’s books show the existence of God through answers to prayer and transformed lives. How God Teaches Us to Pray will teach you the prayer lessons they learned.

Time magazine labeled Francis Schaeffer “the missionary to intellectuals.” Because of this stature, his philosophy and theology have often been analyzed or criticized in academic books and journal articles. However, no book has looked closely at the Schaeffers’ prayer principles in the light of their biography and answers to prayer. In some of her books, Edith Schaeffer illustrated their concern to be people of prayer in the normal course of daily living, but their answers to prayer and combined teachings on prayer are scattered in the midst of their discussions on other topics in both their books and tapes. How God Teaches Us To Pray takes thirty-one examples of different types of answered prayer from their lives and works, and shows how God teaches us to pray. I hope How God Teaches Us To Pray will inspire you to pray daily with greater fervency. I have written with sincere appreciation for their life of prayer, and I have shown many of the difficulties they faced as they prayed for a greater reality of God in their lives. Any sincere seeker can learn the secrets of prayer that the Schaeffers taught by their work and words by reading the thirty-one devotions in How God Teaches Us To Pray and by using the Ten Week Prayer Study Guide at the end of this book for personal, family, or group study.
