WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

“I love any Bible study by Crickett Keeth. I can always count on her work to be sound doctrinally, true to the text, and applicable to my life. Her Bible studies have long been my favorites, with their emphasis on digging into the text and applying it where readers live. As she always does, in her work On Bended Knee: Praying Like Prophets, Warriors, and Kings, she weds timeless truths of scripture with timely application. She has this gift for talking about theological insights in a way that makes readers feel as if she’s sitting with us at the kitchen table. And we find we are changed. I highly recommend her work for both group and individual use.”

“I’m so thankful for this much needed study on prayer.
Crickett has done a beautiful job parsing the many facets of prayer and laying the pieces in front of us so we can better understand and apply this most intimate part of our relationship with Christ. Dividing the study into heartfelt prayer themes, such as intercession, longing, lament, boldness, and more gives us starting points since prayer can often be overwhelming. You’ll also love studying the prayers of men and women in scripture from whom we get our greatest prayer examples. If you’re looking to deepen your prayer life, pick up this study and gather a group of friends together!”

—Kelly Minter, Bible teacher and author of No Other Gods: The Unrivaled Pursuit of Christ and Wherever the River Runs: How a Forgotten People Renewed My Hope in the Gospel


Reading On Bended Knee reminded me of how welcoming God is. Imagine! God Himself inviting us to talk to Him about anything, everything, without pretense or reserve. Thank you, Crickett, for writing so honestly and vulnerably about prayer. While I found myself digging into the scriptures and gaining new insights from this study, the best thing I can say about it is that I kept closing it because all I wanted to do was pray.”

Jan Winebrenner, author of The Grace of Catastropheand Intimate Faith

 

“Who doesn’t want a deeper prayer life? Then, what better place to turn than to biblical characters who poured out their hearts to God—in times of despair, longing, lament, seeking, dependence and boldness. How providential that a resource such as Crickett Keeth’s new Bible Study On Bended Knee: Praying Like Prophets, Warriors and Kings is now available. This seasoned Bible teacher deftly examines the lives of Jesus, Paul, Job, Hannah, David and others in order for us to better understand how prayer can change a life. I love that Crickett is both deep and practical. As she takes us through the study, we are prompted with provocative questions and application for our own lives—while at the same time being encouraged with wisdom from history’s great prayer warriors. All the while keeping our focus in prayer on the Lord and pursuing His will and His way in all things. I highly recommend On Bended Knee for either personal or group study.

Lucinda Secrest McDowell, author of Ordinary Gracesand Dwelling Places

is an inspiring study that not only increased my knowledge of prayer, but more importantly, it moved my heart as it convicted me to examine my own prayer life and see what needs to be changed. It is the perfect blend of thought-provoking questions, challenging quotes, and the author’s honest and transparent reflections that I found myself relating to again and again.
