God, Do You Hear Me?

Discover the Prayer God Always Answers

God, do you hear me?

If we're honest, that's a sentiment we’ve all shared. Prayer can be challenging and confusing. Often we feel abandoned, betrayed, and anxious. We don't know what to pray for, we don't know the words to say, and sometimes it just feels like there's no one on the other side.

Through the pages of this book, pastor and bestselling author Derwin Gray will journey with you, in learning and living the prayer that God always answers. This prayer is commonly called the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:9-13). The Lord's Prayer is the firm foundation God uses to build our lives on the Rock. It will help you break through to a completely new and refreshing prayer life.

Along this journey, you'll learn several things about prayer:

  • Prayer is the secret place where we find God waiting for us.
  • Prayer is the door we enter to discover God’s heart of unending grace.
  • Prayer is the home we have always wanted, where we can crawl into our Father’s lap and find our purpose.
  • Prayer is not about getting God to give us stuff. It is about becoming who we were made to be: a reflection of Jesus in the world.

what are people saying

  • Derwin Gray gives readers a fresh word on prayer. He illuminates, illustrates, and communicates the hope we all need to find strength in divine communion. There is much we can do after we pray. There is nothing we should do before we pray. Pastor Gray’s words will help you bend your knees and then stand in faith.

    Max Lucado, pastor and author

  • Everyone at one point in their lives finds themselves asking big questions about God. One of them being, “Do my prayers matter?”, and thankfully we have a resource from Dr. Gray helping us see the ways our prayers change us, connect us to God, and lead us to worship Him.

  • This is the book on the power of prayer that this generation needs. In these eye-opening pages, my friend Derwin Gray graciously reveals what God’s Word actually says about the life that’s available to us when we live a life of prayer. God, Do You Hear Me? will reignite a fire within you to know God for real, and to experience the full life he has for you. These words will transform how you see God, how you talk to God, and how you live.

  • It’s impossible to grow in the spiritual life without a commitment to prayer. Yet, where do we begin? This was the question Jesus’ first disciples asked, and it gets repeated in every generation. This is why I’m so thankful for Derwin Gray and this book. With winsome storytelling, fresh perspectives, and rich theology, Derwin guides us through the most important prayer Jesus taught us. I’ll be recommending this to many!

  • Simply put, Dr. Derwin Gray has done it again. His words have taken me on a theological journey that has reminded me of who my Father is and who I am to my Father. Do your soul a favor, read this book.
