SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt have practiced daily prayer together for sixteen years. Now they offer readers step-by-step advice on why and how to pray with another person. The 40 Day Prayer Challenge answers the question they hear from readers daily: How do you pray with someone else? The authors also explain how Partnered Prayer—which sounds like a new idea, but comes from ancient biblical promises—restores relation­ships and revitalizes families. Supported by the testimony of dozens of praying partners who themselves became empowered by taking The Challenge, the authors explain how a couple, a mother and son, or two close friends can pray together for five minutes a day for forty days and experience phenomenal outcomes. SQuire and Louise show how churches, small groups, and individual partners can participate in a groundbreaking national initiative called historic—a first-ever empirical study by Baylor University—while personally measuring their own Partnered Prayer progress.

According to Pastor Mark Batterson in his book, The Circle Maker, 'Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn't just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It's a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.' Do you ever sense that there's far more to prayer, and to God's vision for your life, than what you're experiencing? It's time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker---a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his prayers for his people. What impossibly big dream is God calling you to draw a prayer circle around? In this powerful booklet, excerpted from THE CIRCLE MAKER, Batterson helps you uncover your heart's deepest desires and God-given dreams and unleash them through the kind of audacious prayer that God delights to answer.

Your greatest regret at the end of your life will be the lions you didn't chase. You will look back longingly on risks not taken, opportunities not seized, and dreams not pursued. Stop running away from what scares you most and start chasing the God-ordained opportunities that cross your path. In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day is inspired by one of the most obscure yet courageous acts recorded in Scripture, a blessed and audacious act that left no regrets: “Benaiah chased a lion down into a pit. Then, despite the snow and slippery ground, he caught the lion and killed it” (2 Samuel 23:20 -21). Unleash the lion chaser within! What if the life you really want, and the future God wants for you, is hiding right now in your biggest problem, your worst failure…your greatest fear? Story Behind the Book “Our best days often start out as our worst days. And our greatest opportunities are often disguised as our biggest problems. You can land in a pit with a lion on a snowy day, and it will seem like the end of the road. But God is in the recycling business. He recycles past experiences and uses them to prepare us for future opportunities. That is the story of my life. And that is the story of your life. Look in the rearview mirror long enough and you’ll see that God has purposely positioned you everywhere you’ve been—even when it seemed you’d taken a wrong turn.” —Mark Batterson

Pray from Your Gut Satan is alive, well, and actively searching for opportunities to ruin you. Perhaps your trying circumstances or struggling relationships reflect his schemes. Does that make you angry? If you’ve ever suppressed simmering anger toward the enemy, seeing it as an intrusion into your prayers, it’s time you experience the power of violent prayer. These very emotions of hatred and anger against Satan are fuel for life-changing prayer. Overcome an unhealthy, passive approach to prayer that dilutes your communion with the reigning Victor. When you move from defensive, reactive prayers to offensive, proactive prayers with an aggressive agenda, things begin to change. And you don’t want to miss out. When the Battle Rages, Wage Prayer You witness evil all around and it bothers you. You fall to your knees and tentatively, hopefully, you approach God and ask Him to step in. But nothing happens. Goodness and righteousness seem to be fighting a losing battle. You wonder, Why is God so passive? Perhaps the better question is this: Why are you so passive when it comes to prayer? Embrace the infuriating, passionate emotion that wells up within you against Satan and his schemes. Turn your righteous anger into proactive, aggressive prayers that invite God to intervene and destroy the evil around you. Engage in violent prayer. “Chris Tiegreen writes with wisdom, knowledge, and creativity. Violent Prayer is a wonderful resource for Christians who want to make prayer a more powerful part of their lives.” Carol Pipes Editor, On Mission Story Behind the Book “Especially in praying for my family, I’ve learned that there is a connection between the emotional content of my prayers and the results I see later. Many such experiences have convinced me that ‘violent’ prayers can be quite appropriate and effective. My book gets into the nuts and bolts of praying God’s agenda without reducing it to formulas, hierarchies, military strategies, or any other clichéd approach to spiritual warfare. It primarily addresses the emotional attitude of the believer and describes how to incorporate God’s holy anger into prayer for specific situations. Christians will learn how to pray from their gut-level reactions to the enemy’s agenda.” —Chris Tiegreen From the Trade Paperback edition.

Most of us have no idea where we’re going most of the time. Perfect. “Celtic Christians had a name for the Holy Spirit–An Geadh-Glas, or ‘the Wild Goose.’ The name hints at mystery. Much like a wild goose, the Spirit of God cannot be tracked or tamed. An element of danger, an air of unpredictability surround Him. And while the name may sound a little sacrilegious, I cannot think of a better description of what it’s like to follow the Spirit through life. I think the Celtic Christians were on to something…. Most of us will have no idea where we are going most of the time. And I know that is unsettling. But circumstantial uncertainty also goes by another name: Adventure.” --from the introduction From the Trade Paperback edition.
