So many of us struggle with prayer. Many books have been written on the subject and there’s a reason for that. Prayer comes hard to most of us, in most seasons. And when we do pray, we often don't know what to say. What is it that my Father loves to hear about? What are the best things I could pray for my family, my church, and myself?

This short book by renowned Bible teacher Alistair Begg combines warmth, clarity, humor, and practicality as he examines Paul’s prayers for his friends in the church in Ephesus.

Paul clearly enjoyed prayer, and was excited about it. He expected his Father in heaven to hear what he said, and to act in other people’s lives accordingly. The truths that underpin and shape his prayers will motivate us to pray and set us an example.

So be inspired by the Apostle Paul to pray bigger and better prayers as we look to our heavenly Father to do more than all we ask or imagine!

Prayer is so important, and so difficult, that we always need more good books on prayer. Alistair writes with a biblical simplicity and pastoral sincerity that will help you not just feel like you should pray, but feel that you can.

When we get to heaven, we will finally understand how our smallest and most feeble prayers advanced Christ’s kingdom in ways we never dreamed. At that point, I don’t want to whine, ‘Bother! Why didn’t I pray bigger?’ This book is your best guide to offering up larger-than-life prayers through which God delights to work!

We will be forever grateful to Alistair for how he helped us understand and apply Christian basics to every facet of life and worship, and there is nothing more basic and transformational than prayer. There is no greater challenge for the Western church than to be a praying people; so we are thrilled and grateful for this vital book.

Independent reviews

A convicting, wonderful read that has brought me closer to God through prayer.

Ruth Clemence, Heirs Magazine, May 1, 2019

‘Pray Big’ will expand your understanding of prayer and perhaps show you something new that you could try. I recommend this to Christians who are looking to pray bold and big prayers and believe that He listens and responds in ways that we cannot even begin to imagine. It will bring you closer in your walk and I encourage you to take your time in prayer.... continue reading

“Quality book and quality service”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

I love Alistair's books. Quality man of God, quality, solid biblical teaching. Stayed the course!
This devotional no exception. Had his Vol 2 last year so wanted to get Vol 1 this year. Not disappointed.
And my confidence in Alastair has not wained despite current controversy, as I know the man's heart and stand on moral issues - much of current public criticism is unbalanced and out of context. Read his book Christian Manifesto to capture something of this man's heart.

“This really is "truth for life"!”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

I chose this as a Christmas present and am enjoying it very much. It gives you a truth to get your teeth into and mull over during the day. I love the cross-references which link passages in a way that I might not have thought of and the extra passage to read also throws more light on the topic under discussion. I'm not convinced it would work for a new Christian or someone who doesn't know the Bible very well and so may not understand the context of the verse or verses being explained and applied or the cross-references. But if you're reasonably familiar with the Bible and want to deepen your understanding, this book is really good.

“Impossible to read without a magnifying glass”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

Well, I’d love to leave a great review, but for some unknown reason the publishers decided to use the teeniest font size they could find. It’s impossible to read without a magnifying glass! Why on earth would you do that - is it trendy to use a tiny font size or something?! So dreadfully disappointed in wasting my money on something I can’t even read (even with glasses!) :(

“Excellent service and wonderful quality books”

Bought for a gift, loved by the recipient.

“A book of wisdom”

(Review written for 'Alistair Begg Book Bundle')

This isn't a light-hearted- make-you-feel-good devotional. This is truth that focuses on God, leads you to God, and keeps you in God's Word. Outstanding!

“Highly recommended”

Would highly recommend this and all other books written by Alistair Begg. Clear, biblical and like his sermons, makes you want to read the Bible!

“Helpful Book”

Very helpful book on prayer. Easy to get into!

“Educational and Inspirational”

I have always struggled with prayer regarding how often should I pray, what should I pray for and when I should pray? I am often amazed at how some people can pray aloud and make it seem so easy. This book has certainly helped me with regard to what I pray about and who I should remember to pray for. Alistair Begg has written this book in a way that is both easy to understand and read, in fact, it is one of the few books that I have read in my life from cover to cover in an afternoon. I spent most of the remainder of the day reflecting on my approach to prayer and how I need to make changes regarding what and who I pray for. The book is well laid out in chapters addressing the important aspects of prayer and is based on Paul's prayers for the early Christian Church in Ephesus and how these can be used to model the way people can pray today. Alistair also offers some examples of prayer in each section, some sections contain extracts from poems and hymns. I will read this book again because I enjoyed it so much, finding it both educational and inspirational.

“Excellent fuel to pray bigger”

We are called to pray about everything and in every situation and yet how quickly our prayers dry up! This short book provides a remedy to shallow and small praying. It is heart warming and prayer fuelling. It is more than an exposition of Apostolic praying; it's a toolkit for praying like an apostle. It reveals the nature of prayer and provides depth of content for our prayers: Focus, Hope, Riches, Power and Love. I wholeheartedly commend you read and reread this book slowly and often.

“A must read”

Since purchasing this with a gift token and reading through, I have bought three more copies for friends. I am meeting with two of these friends weekly to talk and pray through the Pray Big a chapter at a time.
Pray everyday that the Lord will open your eyes more and more to all that belongs to you if you belong to Jesus Christ and see how He changes your heats desires and your prayers. Thank you Lord
