Author Sarah Ivill contends, “As we study prayer through the lens of the unfolding story of Scripture, it will teach us how to pray, but more importantly it will reveal the Covenant God to whom we pray.” And just such an endeavor provides the foundation and motivation necessary to enrich our prayer life. See how Old Testament prayers find their fulfillment and transformation in Christ. Discover boldness and joy in prayer because Christ is the high priest who gives us access to the throne of grace. Moreover, look forward to an eternity in which our prayers will consist of unhindered praise.

“Sarah Ivill has put together a wonderful study on prayer. Her unique biblical-theological approach to prayer not only reminds us how to pray but even more shows us the God of the Bible to whom we pray. This study will introduce readers to the redemptive story line of the Bible, the God who saves, and the practice of prayer. If you’re looking to deepen your prayer life, The God Who Hears will be a great tool.” —Tom Groelsema, executive pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, North Carolina
“If we didn’t believe that God hears our prayers and that our prayers really do make a difference, why would we even bother to pray? But who is the God who hears our prayers? What moves Him? What kinds of things does He want us to talk to Him about? In this book, Sarah Ivill works her way through the story of the Bible, showing that a mark of God’s people has always been pouring out our hearts to God in prayer. Along the way, she encourages us to become people who increasingly find prayer to be a resource and refuge.” — Nancy Guthrie, author of What Every Child Should Know about Prayer
