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 youve ever suppressed simmering anger toward the enemy, seeing it as an intrusion into your prayers, its 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 dont want to miss out.
When the Battle Rages,
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."

Story Behind the Book
"Especially in praying for my family, Ive 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 Gods 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 Gods holy anger into prayer for specific situations. Christians will learn how to pray from their gut-level reactions to the enemys agenda." Chris Tiegreen

And prayer with an attitude is what Chris Tiegreen promotes in Violent Prayer. Tiegreen's rousing prose and insightful comments leave us eager to expect God to advance His kingdom in answer to our prayers. Tiegreen points out our wrong assumptions, especially in discriminating between submission to God's will and a lack of faith in prayer. He promotes spiritual warfare while decrying the excesses of the movement. Because of his background as a pastor, church planter, missionary, writer, and editor, Tiegreen offers a depth and clarity that is often lacking in America-centric preaching. For instance, he points out that Jesus' instructing us to pray "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven," can in itself be a guideline as to what God's will is in a situation. Will kids be shooting up in heaven? Then it's not wrong to pray and work toward its end here on earth. Is it God's will that a tyrant slaughter Christians in his homeland? It's not going to be happening in heaven, so it shouldn't be here. Violent Prayer arouses excitement and a sense of urgency, but it has a few weaknesses. At times, Tiegreen makes assertions about Scripture without giving references to back it up. He would strengthen his argument with offering a few verses that support his declarations. For instance, he claims that most of the recorded prayers in Scripture are about the expansion of Christ's kingdom, but he gives no references. In another example, Tiegreen asserts that the authors of the New Testament blame the devil and his minions for many of the world's problems, but he doesn't give references. I would have liked to look some of these up. Not all of us are as knowledgeable in the Scriptures as he is. Also, Tiegreen attributes many problems in relationships to spiritual forces rather than to personal sin. This seems to be an over-emphasis from spiritual warfare proponents, perhaps in reaction to those who neglect the spiritual forces at war in the world.
