Publisher's Summary

Learn to pray - and change the world

"You're in our prayers" has become a cliche. Just a nice thing to say when we see someone struggling.

But do we really understand the power of prayer?

God, God almighty, God the creator of the heavens and the earth, God the beginning and the end, God the source of all that is, God the creator of man - the same God, in all His power and all His majesty, stops and listens when you pray. God has given humanity the ability to bring heaven to earth.

Whether you know it or not, you have the authority to change the world through prayer. When God said, “Let mankind rule over all the earth,” He was arranging the dominion of the world so that the partnership of mankind was essential for the accomplishment of His purposes. Through his unique perspective on this often-misunderstood subject, best-selling author Dr. Myles Munroe takes the mystery out of prayer, providing practical answers for difficult questions about communicating with God.

All that God is - and all that God has - may be received through prayer. Everything you need to fulfill your purpose on earth is available to you through prayer. The biblically based, time-tested principles in this book will ignite and transform the way you pray. Be prepared to enter into a new dimension of faith, a deeper revelation of God’s love, and a renewed understanding that your prayers can truly move the hand of God.

This expanded edition includes study questions for individual or small group use.

So thankful for this message!

My grandma handed me a copy of this book a few years ago and my infant daughter pulled it off the bookshelf. I tried to read the hard copy but then found it here on Audible. Such a good book, I think that prayer (and fasting) is where it’s at. I figure we might as well go for the big stuff during our short stay on this planet. I’m very thankful for this author’s faithfulness to articulate and share this teaching.

This book drops so many gems it should be a lecture!

It’s well worth the listen, but you’ll get the most from this book if you take notes along with it.

Life changing!!!

Your life will not be the same after this book. The audio is amazing. The content is out of this world revelatory! Prayer is an individual responsibility. There is structure to prayer & if your prayers aren't being answered it's cause you're doing it wrong. A MUST READ/ LISTEN. Would highly highly recommend if you want to be powerful in your Christian walk!!!

this was a wonderful book very encouraging

the book was very informative with lots of scriptures to back up the teaching what I really liked was each subject he did he took time to walk you through it and explain each topic which to me was worth its weight in gold thank you

Insightful

It gave me a better insight on the function and operation of prayer, how to apply it whilst reiterating aspects of faith that need to be checked.

Essential Information for Every Believer

Logical, well structured and supported by scripture. Essential for every believer to understand their role, why we should pray, and its power if done as intended. Good summary and action points at the end of the chapters. Very practical, and is like a manual for continuous use.
