"There has been much to say about prayer, and there is much yet still to say. Onwuchekwa infuses rich cultural motifs with a necessary spiritual discipline to create this small but powerfully helpful book. Moreover, the origin of the book (his own suffering in the loss of his brother) and the size of the book make it the first one pastors may want to give their congregations. Many books rightly focus on the individual nature of prayer, but this little work shows what a powerful tool every congregation possesses in the gift of prayer."

What is the role of corporate prayer in the church?
Prayer is as necessary to the Christian as breathing is to the human body- but it often doesn't come quite as naturally. In fact, prayer in the church often gets subtly pushed to the side in favor of pragmatic practices that promise tangible results.
This book focuses on the necessity of regular prayer as a central practice in the local church-awakening us to the need and blessing of corporate prayer by examining what Jesus taught about prayer, how the first Christians approached prayer, and how to prioritize prayer in our congregations.
