Simon Wyatt will present an explanation of aspects of prayer from a section in the book of Job. Simon will outline some of the words that the Bible uses for prayer and will then talk about the need for changes of attitude and behaviour, finishing by considering the results that flow from this. The section in the book of Job is a starting point: other passages and verses will be referred to. The consideration of this subject, whilst challenging, is intended to teach and to encourage.
