Do you ever wonder, "Why doesn't God answer my prayers?" Do you wish you could see the evidence that prayer changes lives? Are you tired of playing it safe with your faith? In Dangerous Prayers, New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel helps you unlock your greatest potential and tackle your greatest fears by praying stronger, more passionate prayers that lead you into a deeper faith.
Prayer moves the heart of God--but some prayers move Him more than others. He wants more for us than a tepid faith and half-hearted routines at the dinner table. He's called you to a life of courage, not comfort.
This book will show you how to pray the prayers that search your soul, break your habits, and send you to pursue the calling God has for you. But be warned: if you're fine with settling for what's easy, or you're OK with staying on the sidelines, this book isn't for you. You'll be challenged. You'll be tested. You'll be moved to take a long, hard look at your heart.
But you'll be inspired, too.
You'll be inspired to pray boldly. To pray powerfully. To pray with fire. You'll see how you can trade ineffective prayers and lukewarm faith for raw, daring prayers that will push you to new levels of passion and fulfillment. You'll discover the secret to overcome fears of loss, rejection, failure, and the unknown and welcome the blessings God has for you on the other side.
You'll gain the courage it takes to pray dangerous prayers.
In this informative guide, Groeschel (Hope in the Dark), founding and senior pastor of Life.Church in Edmond, Okla., shares his previous struggle of feeling inadequate about his prayer life. Though Groeschel always desired to pray the "right" way, his routine, he writes, had started to feel like a rut. As he studied the prayers of people within the Bible, he noticed that they varied, including personal, practical, and even prayers of angry frustration. Groeschel also grasped their "desperate, fiery, gutsy, and real" quality and learned that prayers only need to be "open and honest." Clarifying that these heartfelt and simple prayers are not to be confused with "safe," or simplistic, prayers, he challenges readers with three different types of prayers, which, he argues, can strengthen their faith: "search me," "break me," and "send me." His suggestions correspond to feelings of self-reflection, the desire to overcome limitations, and the hard work of discovering God's plan for oneself. To reinforce his prayer method, Groeschel includes discussion questions for each section. With plenty of examples of "dangerous prayers" from the Bible, this passionate work will inspire Christians to pray from the heart.
