Prayer: The Ultimate Conversation
Have you ever considered what it means to talk to God? Is it really possible to communicate with the Creator of all that exists and be able to understand His plans and purposes for your life?
Perhaps there are questions you desperately need answered. Maybe you are facing a trial that is too large or difficult to face on your own and you yearn for divine direction. Or it could be you are simply curious about what He would say to you.
In The Ultimate Conversation, which is based on a lifetime of walking with the Father and fifty-five years of ministry founded on prayer, Dr. Charles Stanley not only teaches the disciplines of intercession but also explains how to fight life’s battles through intimate communion with the Lord. Dr. Stanley discusses how to truly know God through communication with Him. He explores topics such as:
Learning to recognize the sound of the Father’s voice
How your perception of God shapes your prayer life
Winning your battles through prayer
Finding true peace and joy through intimacy with the Lord
No matter what confounding questions, perplexing circumstances, or seemingly insurmountable barriers you are facing today, the solution to them is absolutely obvious to God. He has the most profound knowledge and understanding of every topic in the universe—including your personal situation—and He longs to share His answers with you. He also has the power and wisdom necessary to help you overcome your deepest issues and experience your most rewarding successes.
