Often we view prayer as an activity reserved for a certain time, in a certain place, offered in a specific way. But Scripture encourages us to pray continually. This exhortation is an opportunity for prayer to permeate every aspect of our lives--when we're alone or in a crowd, when it's quiet and when it's chaotic, when we feel like it and when we don't. Praying with Eyes Wide Open shows us how to make continuous prayer a natural part of our lives rather than something on our daily spiritual checklist. It helps us encounter God in new ways as we learn to - open our eyes to see his presence and the world around us - open our ears to hear his voice - open our hearts to experience freedom and power as we pray - and open our lives as we pray for and with others Anyone desiring a richer, more transformative prayer life will welcome this fresh take on conversing with our Creator.

By using the examples of these godly women, the book is designed to show different types of prayer, as well as different reasons to pray. The types of prayer include willingness and surrender, praise and worship, thanksgiving and personal supplication, pleading for mercy, intercessions and perseverance, bold requests, and a prayer of faith.Features include:• Explores the lives and prayers of ten women of the Bible• Relates the biblical examples to the lives of women today• Concludes each chapter with a sample prayer to give readers a starting point for their own continued prayer

The Guide To Better Prayers

This book is a prayer book, and it contains teachings on prayer, prayer guides, and other bonus material. Many of us, if honest, struggle with prayer and really do not understand prayer or how prayer works. The truth is from our earthly perspective we think "why bother, things are going happen" and the world will carry on whether we pray or not. Hopefully and prayerfully, this book will help you see that we do not know everything, and prayer does work! In this book, there are guided prayer prompts with scripture to help you pray, the will of God. Many of the prayer guides were developed during a year of leading a prayer ministry. Every week under the Holy Spirit's guidance, I wrote prayer guides that we used as a church. These guides were highly effective in leading us to the Throne Room. This book is designed to be a launching platform that is biblically-based, and as such, the Holy Spirit will use them powerfully. Many prayers were written to meet certain prayer needs with powerful results. The first thing I learned about prayer is: first it is like a muscle that must be exercised. Second, wisdom is the greatest thing to be gleaned from prayer because many times we (in our earthly view) cannot understand God and prayer. We can become skeptical of prayer if wisdom is not gleaned. Third, relationships are built through prayer, and trust is built between the parties. I have come to realize this is the reason many of our prayers are not answered. "Until I came into the sanctuary of God; Then I understood [for I considered] their end (Psalm 73:17)." Why this book? I was saved in a revival service where the presence of God was extremely tangible. The people who led it were people of prayer and the results showed! After the meeting, I found out there was a group of college-age students who were praying for revival; the very revival where I was saved! I went to the prayer meeting and when I heard their prayers, I realized and exclaimed "you guys were praying for me!" Ever since that time in February 2002, I have been a person of prayer and always found a group of people of prayer. My life has never been the same and yours will not be either!

Running On Empty

Learn to live with God instead of for God. In this candid and achingly authentic book, Fil Anderson shares the healing insights that restored his spiritual compass and guided him back to God--the God who specializes in filling empty souls. Fil Anderson had accomplished more for God than most of his contemporaries, but his worn-out body housed an empty soul. His frenetic pace of ministry had earned him just one thing: greater pressure to do even more. He had fallen for the soul-killing lie that doing more for God would give his life meaning. Then the godly admonition of a spiritual director set this burned-out believer on a life-saving spiritual path. Sometimes the only way to get a new life is by running your old one completely into the ground. This powerful story of a reawakened soul can be the story of every person who has pursued spiritual productivity over intimacy with God and come up empty. It’s the story of reclaiming your soul and finding a home in the center of God’s relentless love. It’s the journey from self-importance to God-importance. “To the harried and the unharried, I pray that this book will minister to your heart in the profound way that it has blessed mine.” —Brennan Manning

The internment of Japanese-Americans during the Second World War was a landmark in American jurisprudence. One hundred twenty thousand Japanese, the majority of whom were American citizens, were forcibly removed from the west coast of the United States because of their race. I was one of the 120,000 internees, but was only seven years of age when interned and ten when I returned to California. I was too young to fully appreciate the historic scope of the incarceration of American citizens simply because of their national origin. This awakening came later. My parents were able to keep me from fully realizing my situation, and protected me from the feeling of helplessness that would have come with a better understanding of what had happened to us.

No doubt, it is common to hear Christians today declaring their allegiance to God's kingdom. But what does this actually entail, and what difference does it make? In his characteristically provocative and daring way, Christoph Blumhardt articulates a vision of God's kingdom that turns much of our understanding of modern Christianity upside-down. In the present volume, available in English for the first time, Blumhardt leads readers to look at the gospel anew, challenging us to follow Jesus in a way that makes God's reign a reality, here and now. Bypassing vague notions of spirituality, as well as transcending simplistic approaches to faith, Blumhardt inspires us to actually live under the rule and reign of God.

Three Theological Mistakes

- Is the existence of God a matter of faith or knowledge? - Does God sometimes act miraculously or are there physical causes for everything? - Is morality absolute or relative? - Are humans truly free or does God's sovereignty determine everything? - When bad things happen, is God the cause or are they the fault of humans? Too frequently Christians answer these questions with a Yes to one side and a No to the other side. Thomas Aquinas and Karl Barth answer Yes to both. Following their model, Machuga defends a "third way" which transcends the Enlightenment dichotomies of fideism vs. rationalism, supernaturalism vs. naturalism, relativism vs. absolutism, free will vs. predestination, and God's justice vs. his mercy. Machuga begins by showing how these false dichotomies grew out of the Enlightenment assumptions of mechanism, universal quantification, and mono-causation. He then corrects these demonstrably dubious assumptions by articulating a theory of dual-causation. The result is a thoroughly biblical understanding of God, miracles, and free will that can withstand the contemporary criticisms of both science and philosophy.

Join Elisabeth Elliot for six months of daily meditations, each holding the power to bring you deeper into God's abiding love.
