At the Throne of Grace: A Book of Prayers

by John MacArthur

Paperback(Large Print)



Now available in paperback--a best-selling collection of powerful Scripture readings and prayers from Bible teacher John MacArthur.

For more than 40 years, John has steadfastly committed himself to the careful and faithful teaching of God's Word at Grace Community Church in Southern California. A special outgrowth of this ministry?one that has particularly blessed the congregation at the church?is the heartfelt and God-centered prayers that precede his sermons.

In this book, prayers and Scripture readings from across John's years of teaching have been brought together to stir Christians toward more edifying communion with God. This book will guide readers, in the most intimate way possible, before God's throne of grace?so that they expand the horizons of their prayers as they pour out their praises, confessions, and thanksgiving to the Lord.

These prayers are highly personal and filled with content that will encourage believers toward a richer and more meaningful prayer life.
