You'll be challenged to spend one hour each day in prayer by dividing the hour into twelve five-minute "points of focus," such as praise, waiting, confession, and Scripture praying. In this special 25th anniversary edition of The Hour That Changes the World, Dick Eastman also extends an invitation for believers everywhere to help form continuous walls of prayer in their communities-saturating neighborhoods and nations with nonstop, focused intercession. Whether you join a wall of prayer or simply apply the twelve-points plan, this book will transform your prayer life.
The Hour That Changes the World, first published by Baker in 1978, is a classic book on prayer that offers practical suggestions on how readers can revitalize their prayer lives. Dick Eastman challenges Christians to spend one hour each day in prayer, and he outlines a twelve-step prayer program to help them accomplish the task.
By dividing one hour into twelve five-minute "points of focus," such as praise, waiting, confession, and Scripture praying, believers will develop a more consistent habit of daily prayer. The Hour That Changes the World draws heavily on Scripture and classic devotional writers and includes an appendix titled "Scriptural Intercession."
This 25th anniversary edition features a new introduction by Eastman and a new foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada, in which she writes: "The Hour That Changes the World may appear small and modest, but don't let its size fool you. Full of biblical insights about prayer, packed with testimonies of prayer warriors from years past, brimming with practical suggestions that will help you carve out a purposeful time of praise and intercession, Dick Eastman's book is arguably the most significant book on prayer written in modern times."
Dick Eastman is the president of Every Home for Christ and author of Celebration of Praise, No Easy Road, Love On Its Knees, and several other books. He lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his wife, Dee, and is a prayer leader respected across denominational boundaries.
