    - Prayer by Cameron Wiggins Bellm. Back to Top. Prayer for People Critically Ill or Facing Great Uncertainty. God of the present moment, God who in Jesus stills the storm and soothes the frantic heart; bring hope and courage to all who wait or work in uncertainty.

    How can we pray effectively? While there is no one formula for effective prayers, we can strive to deepen our prayer life with practical tips or Bible-based advice.   Book 1 - Psalms - The five divisions correspond roughly to the five books of Moses.

      I am always eager to learn more about prayer. Not opinions and not theories - but practical help that is true and that works. This book is based squarely on Scripture (so it's true) and covers 9 different types of prayer. If this is any recommendation - I am going to list the types of prayer, make brief notes, and re-read parts of it/5(7).
