Turkish Title: Kutsal Yazılarla Dua
Original Title: Praying the Scriptures
Author: Judson Cornwall
Have you ever been discouraged by your prayers, or lack of them? Have feelings of inadequacy or frustration plagued this intimate part of your relationship with God? You are not alone. While called to pray without ceasing our vocabularies are limited and it is often difficult to put into words what our hearts are saying.
A Powerful Prayer Life
Turkish Title: Duanın Gücü
Original Title: Power Through Prayer
Author: E.M. Bounds
"The little estimate we put on prayer is evident from the little time we give to it. Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still." E.M. Bounds
His philosophy is that "God's man is made in the closet" of prayer where he is anionted by the Holy Spirit.
My Name is Written in the Heavens
Turkish Title: Benim Adım Göklerde Yazılı!
English Translation of Title: My Name is Written in the Heavens
Author: Necati Aydın
This collection of wonderful poems written by a Turkish believer to express his faith is made all the more poignant by the fact that the author was killed in Malatya, Turkey because of his faith. Benim Adım Göklerde Yazılı also contains a moving introduction by his widow Şemse, and a letter written by Necati to his family to explain his faith in Christ.

Prayer, as Jesus Taught Us
Turkish Title: Rab Bana Dua Etmeye Öğret
Original Title: Lord Teach Me to Pray
Author: Kay Arthur
The disciples recognized that Jesus had something special in his prayer-relationship with the Father, that was lacking in their own, and they begged him, “Lord, Teach Us To Pray.”
He replied, “This is how you should pray,” and taught them the prayer we call “The Lord’s Prayer”. Rather than being a set of lines to be memorized and repeated, this prayer is a model illustrating the principles of prayer.
