Mr. Reynolds explains what Jesus meant in Matthew 18:19-20. When two or more people agree that a matter is serious enough to be brought before the throne of God so that it can be established on the earth, God takes it more seriously than when one person makes the request. He likened this to the government taking more seriously a petition signed by a group of people rather than one person alone. He does a great job of including modern-day analogies to explain the Scriptures.
He also points out that prayer is the necessary component to compel us to go forward toward God's will, especially when we are resisting it. Using James 5:16 as an example, he encourages us to never underestimate the power that one righteous person has with God. He says, "When God sees us giving everything we have in prayer, He will match our efforts and give us His best."
Mr. Reynolds also shows us that worshipping God and exalting His magnificence and power should be a key element in any prayer. Giving God glory and honor motivates Him to grant us favor. God is able to do more than deliver us when we put our complete trust in Him. The elements of each of the ten prayers are examined, and the reason why each one was powerful. People in the Bible used prayer in different ways, such as a weapon of defense, or as a healing force.
Insightfully written, a good reference book for doing a study on prayer.
