If God already knows, why pray? (Pourquoi prier si Dieu sait déjà ?)
The subject of prayer is vast, and the questions it raises many. The Christian himself is often puzzled, not always being able to grasp what his prayer has to do in the presence of an almighty and sovereign God.
Indeed, as the title asks so well the question that works more than one heart: Why pray if God already knows?
It is within the framework of this question that the author, an eminent servant of God, examines the privilege and the duty of prayer. His book is both deeply rooted in the truth of the Bible and God's purpose, but also fully connected with the concrete reality of everyday life.
Dotting his words with anecdotes and examples taken from his environment in the southern United States or from the Scotland of his ancestors where he lived for several years, he offers the reader answers and actions to fight and win in prayer.
