Overview

The saints of the Old Testament can help you pray better. All Christians desire to pray more effectively. What better way to learn how to pray than to study the great prayers of the Old Testament. I Will Lift My Eyes Unto the Hills explores 11 such prayers—Abraham interceding for Sodom, David praising God for his kingly dynasty, Solomon asking for a listening heart, Hezekiah pleading for help against an arrogant army, and Daniel confessing sins on behalf of the entire nation of Israel. This book is an answer to the prayer, “Lord, teach us to pray.”

Top Highlights

“True revival will begin when sinners have heard about the effectiveness of the prayers of God’s people and as a result seek out such praying persons for their own needy lives.” (Page 2)

“Prayer has always been the way God has chosen to show himself strong on behalf of those who called upon him.” (Page 1)

“Our communication with God must remain open; it is the best of all joys to walk and talk with him constantly along life’s journey. He must remain the passion of our being.” (Page 10)

“prayer held a most prominent place in the lives of the Old Testament people, but they often failed to act on it.” (Page 6)

“We seem to see a general pattern forming in Scripture, one in which barren women would often serve as the very special instruments God would use to raise up key figures in the history of redemption. Surely this pattern was planned by God to make sure we mortals did not attribute the arrival of these key figures in the plan of salvation to any human machinations or abilities. Hannah, therefore, could well belong to what we might call ‘the fellowship of the barren ones,’ in which the total inability of these couples to have children became the very starting point for God to manifest in a unique way his power and strength.” (Page 36)
