Book Summary of Prayer 101 by Warren Wiersbe


It’s time to go back to school. Thankfully, it’s not to learn reading, writing, and arithmetic. Rather, it’s time to go back to the school of prayer. Prayer is necessary to the Christian life. Sometimes, proficiency in a subject comes from relearning the basics. Thus, the need for Prayer 101.

Jesus’ disciples asked Him to teach them to pray. A disciple is “a learner” (p. 139), and disciples today must seek to learn from God how to pray rightly. We learn to pray primarily from the Word of God as it instructs Christians on how to pray and gives examples of both answered and unanswered prayers. 

Disciples also learn to pray, and grow in prayer, through their relationships with other believers. They must also see that the way they seek to live for the Lord and the way they interact with others have a profound impact on their prayer life. 

Since prayer is so vital to the Christian life, it is worth the effort to learn how to pray well. “Prayer is not only serious business, but it’s also an expensive privilege… To make light of prayer and take it for granted, to pray carelessly and flippantly, is to make light of the death of God’s only Son. God doesn’t answer cheap prayers.” (p. 10)
