Transforming Prayer / Review
Paperback: 236 pages
Publisher: Bethany House (January 1, 2011)
Praying Christians are hungry to learn how to connect with God in a way that takes them beyond the typical grocery-list approach. Transforming Prayer explores the profound difference between seeking God's hand (what he does for people) and seeking God's face (who he really is).
With captivating stories of the transformative power of personal worship and its connection with prayer, this book equips readers with practical tools for a more effective personal and corporate prayer life.
When ask to review this book by the publisher, I was more than happy to read about 'Transforming Prayer'. I had recently read a fasinating article in our local newspaper about a man who was healed from a crippling disease through seeking only the love of God. This book seemed to go along with that concept.
Topics addressed in 'Transforming Prayer' include: Beyond a "Grocery List" of needs; What is Blocking the Breakthrough?; All Prayer List Are Not Created Equal; Go For the Glory; Pray This, Not That; The Bible and God's Glory.
This handbook on prayer is practical, doable, and has the potential to take one's prayer life from mediocre to fantastic. It also includes a section of chapter by chapter questions for reflection and discussion in the back of the book.
(Thank you to Bethany House for my review copy.)
