THE PURPOSE FOR THIS BOOK
Would you like to be a prayerful person? You can be.
If you’re anything like me, you may struggle with how to pray or to pray more effectively. This struggle explains my first reason for writing The Book On Prayer: An Invitation to an Awakening. I want to share with you what has helped me grow more prayerful. Through this book, you can see your prayer life transform from good, or even broken, to something beautiful.
My second reason for writing this book is found in the last part of the title. I want to invite you to an Awakening—a healing touch of Heaven for a sick world. We desperately need God to reveal Himself and we are confident He will do what He has done in the past: respond to the prayers of His people. Come join us in seeking God’s Face.
Prayer does not have to be complicated or tedious. What streams are to a desert, prayer is to our thirsty souls. When we pray, we absorb God’s Life and share this with those around us. Within this book are 21 daily devotions designed to encourage you to become a person of prayer. This is a systematic way for you to grow in prayer.
If we can awaken to prayer, God can awaken our land.
Why don't we pray?
