“Does Prayer Matter? A Discussion On Prayer”: a book of devout questions about our relationship with God. “Does Prayer Matter? A Discussion On Prayer” is the creation of published author Eleanor DeRycke, a retired Special Education teacher and addiction counselor now living in Las Cruces, New Mexico, with Donald, her husband of fifty-five years.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Eleanor DeRycke‘s new book attempts to offer answers to such questions as “Does God have time for me? What actually happens to my prayers? Do they just fade away? What about all the sinning I have done? How does sin affect my prayer life? How can we possible pray without ceasing? How can I use prayer as a first aid kit? Can I somehow learn to pray as King David did in defeating his enemies? And how do I carry out God’s work on earth in prayer?”

This book then shares the heritage in prayer, as exemplified by the lives of the mighty prayer warriors of the past—warriors such as the Reformation fighters, Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Bucer, and Melanchthon; in most recent years, E. M. Bounds, James Gilmour, A. Wetherell Johnson, and Heidi Baker; and finally Jesus Christ himself.

“I truly hope you come out of the other side of this book the prayer warrior you hope to become. May God bless you, prayer warrior!” - Eleanor DeRycke
