"Much power has been ignored by the Church because of its failure in the area of prayer."-David Butts, from the Introduction. Forgotten Power is a simple theology book on prayer in the church. No one argues against prayer, but few churches utilize prayer as a power source. Yet in the Scriptures and in the early church, prayer was the primary method used to tap into the power of the Holy Spirit. So why don't we use it much? Forgotten Power clearly challenges the main reason that churches do not pray-people do not understand the "whys" of prayer. Forgotten Power is a must read for pastors, elders, church board members-anyone who leads in a church. It is time that leaders understood the importance of prayer and what can happen if it is put into practice in their church. Use it as a discussion starter in your church. Dr. David Butts is the president of Harvest Prayer Ministries, more than 20 years as a senior pastor shaped his heart for prayer in the church. Now he lives and breathes helping other churches to develop prayer as the core of what they do. Dave has authored or co-authored nine books on prayer, among them are Pray Like the King, Prayer and the End of Days and When God Shows Up.
