As one who knows the struggles with prayer and even teaches others how to pray, Thoughtful Prayers gives more insight into how to pray than most other methods or how-to books. As much as you can teach others how to pray, they will never know how to pray until they experience praying for themselves. But, reading someone elses prayers are even a greater tool than you know. By reading each of Harold Bussells prayers, you gain insight into a mans daily struggles with God about life, the church and with his own spiritual life. Harold opens up courageously as he pours out his heart and soul to God. This kind of courage gives the reader encouragement that its alright to pray to a sovereign God and ask for guidance for the struggles we face daily. In taking us through The Lords Prayer and breaking it down into 6 weeks of personal prayers, you can see that one mans prayers are struggles we can all relate to. We can adopt these prayers and over time transform them to fit our prayer life. We can be courageous, yet reverent to our Holy God, bold, and yet humble to a loving, gracious God that cares for us. What is interesting to me personally is how these prayers become deeper and deeper as the weeks progress. By day 31 I am humbled by how much I am missing in my prayer life, maybe thinking too much of myself or not bearing my soul as much as Harold Bussell has in his prayers. It really creates in me a wanting to do better even in my prayer life. Not to emulate Harolds but just noticing where I might fall short in not being humble or reverent enough in my prayers. Harolds prayers are truly a guide to help you reflect on where you are in your own personal prayer life with God. And then maybe adopt some of his prayers to move you to a closer friendship with Jesus. Steve Wiersum

Praying When Prayer Doesn T Work

Almost everyone has an opinion about what prayer is and how it ought to work. But for many, prayer produces far less than the saints say it should. While some surveys suggest that up to 90 percent of us believe in prayer enough to do it daily, that lofty statistic is tempered by the sobering claim that average believers only pray for eight to twelve minutes a week. If that's not a red warning flag that prayer has a serious public relations problem, what is? Praying When Prayer Doesn’t Work is a thoughtful— often witty—account of the author's journey to find prayer’s elusive promise for himself. A pastor for thirty years, Jack uses humor, plenty of secondary resources, scripture, real-life stories, and his own unique insights to illustrate how both routine and exceptional circumstances may be used to trigger meaningful, ongoing, and productive prayer. While challenging harmful assumptions (dogma) with unconventional observations, Getz also looks at prayer's four public relations problems, identifies the perfect environment for prayer, and examines the three critical attitudes necessary to pray with great effect. Also, the wisdom and helpful suggestions found in the useful study guide can teach sincere seeker's of the truth how to get personal with God and make praying a choice, not a chore.

Is God even listening? If God is sovereign and in control, why should I bother praying? Can my will override His will? Public interest in spiritual things is at an all-time high, and one of the most often discussed topics is prayer. Yet there are vexing questions related to our communication with God, and much misinformation is circulated about prayer—even among Christians. Many struggle with hard questions. In fact, there seem to be as many negative attitudes and questions about prayer as there are positive things said about it. 10 Questions About Prayer Every Christian Must Answer does what other books do not: explore the link between Christian apologetics and prayer. Elmer Towns and Alex McFarland— each with extensive pastoral and academic experience—respond to common objections and questions about prayer, offering biblically informed, well-reasoned answers. This resource will encourage Christian readers in their faith and provide them with help when encountering Christianity’s critics. To those who are skeptical about prayer, it offers respectful and carefully reasoned rebuttals to their assumptions.

Long before the megachurch, nearly 6,000 people crowded every service to hear Charles Spurgeon. Discover why his masterful preaching astonished his era! Considered by his peers then and now as "The Prince of Preachers", Charles Spurgeon built London's Metropolitan Tabernacle into the world's largest independent congregation during the nineteenth century. While many factors have been highlighted that help explain the effectiveness of Spurgeon's preaching, the foremost secret that empowered Charles Spurgeon was his devotion to prayer. When people would walk through the Metropolitan Tabernacle, Spurgeon would take them to the basement prayer room where people were always on their knees interceding for the church. Then Spurgeon would declare, "Here is the powerhouse of this church. That statement is backed by the amazing number of sermons that Spurgeon preached on prayer. Spurgeon was a great believer and teacher in passionate, Holy Spirit-directed prayer. His word pictures of the majestic throne of grace that God calls believers to be privileged to come before is well worth the price of the book alone. You will be inspired and challenged in your prayer life, especially if you experience struggles in prayer.

How many times have you poured your heart and soul into something for your youth ministry—only to have it fall flat, leaving not much more than a fond memory in the minds of students, let alone amazing life-change in their hearts? You’re not alone. Far too often, we build plans and programs and then stop to ask God to bless them. We all want a transformational student ministry, but we need to remember that God has to be the one doing the transformations in the lives of our students. Based on the principles found in the book of Acts, Moving Forward by Looking Back will help you look back at how God transformed lives through the early church, and look forward at how those principles can be applied to your youth ministry today. As you reflect on the book of Acts, you’ll explore how your youth ministry can implement the principles of: • Adoration—engaging students with God • Community—engaging students with God’s people • Truth—engaging students with God’s Word • Service—engaging students with God’s world With practical ideas that are easy to apply in any ministry context, whether you’re a rookie or a veteran, a professional or a volunteer youth worker, this book is an invaluable resource for any youth ministry that wants to see its students transformed by God.
