The question is often asked, "How can I pray so my prayers will be answered?" There are indeed answers, and in this book you will find a remarkable number of them. In the pages before you, will be found an in-depth presentation of Spirit of Prophecy statements on this subject. Because it is a practical question, dealing with the everyday realities of life, the answers will also be found to be very practical, and will touch on a variety of points. Yet basic principles are also give, principles which underlie all genuine contact with God. Our kind of Father is more willing to give good gifts to His children that we are to receive them. On our part, there should be an earnestness to plead for help, a steadfast determination to cling to Him in spite of all that might occur, and a submission to His wise decisions.
