Be inspired to pray boldly, pray powerfully, pray with passion, and trade ineffective prayers and lukewarm faith for raw, daring prayers that will transform your daily life.
Do you ever wonder if God answers your prayers? Do you wish you could see the evidence that prayer changes lives? Do you long for more than playing it safe in your faith? Join New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel as he helps you discover the power of authentically communicating with God, breaking out of the restrictive spiritual safety bubble, and expanding your ideas about what's possible with God.
The Bible tells us that prayer has the power to move God's heart, 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. God called you to a life of courage, not comfort.
In Dangerous Prayers, Groeschel will show you how to pray the prayers that search your soul, break your habits, and send you out to pursue the calling God has for you. But be warned: If you're fine with settling for what's easy, or if you're okay 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.
Dangerous Prayers will give you the encouragement and tools you need to:
Transform the patterns around your daily prayer lifeTruly embrace and believe in the power of intentional prayerStart to pray daring, faith-filled, God-honoring, life-changing, world-transforming prayers
You'll discover the secret to overcoming fears of loss, rejection, failure, and the unknown, and you'll welcome the blessings God has for you on the other side. But best of all, 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.
Eye opening! Ready to pray dangerously 🙏🏽
Just what all Christians need to hear.
Powerful, challenging and convicting
The last few pages are fresh in my mind as I type this. Craig said it near the beginning but reprised it at the end: I’ll paraphrase but, if God answered all the prayers I prayed the last 7 days, would the world be a better place? That hit me in the gut. Thanks for the encouragement and challenge. Time to start praying dangerously 🙌🏼🙌🏼
