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.”
