Book Summary of Pray Big by Alistair Begg


“So many of us struggle with prayer.” (p. 12) This struggle is often rooted in the following issues:

  • In prayer, we are seeking to make bargains and deals with God.
  • In prayer, we are timid to ask for much because we lack faith.
  • In prayer, we are self-centered and self-focused in our requests. 

“I want to pray bigger, and better. I want you to enjoy praying like that too.” (p. 12) 

To reach this goal, we need a teacher, and when it comes to prayer, there is no better teacher than the apostle Paul. Paul knew who he was praying to. Paul knew who he was praying for. Paul knew how to actually pray. By studying Paul’s prayers, we can gain invaluable insight into the practice of prayer. 

The book of Ephesians contains several of Paul’s prayers for his friends in Ephesus. In writing out his prayers for the church in Ephesus, Paul has left us an example of how we ought to pray.
