If you want to know the temperature of your spiritual life, look at the thermostat setting on your prayer life.
Prayer is the most misunderstood and neglected aspect of the Christian life. It has been estimated that most Christians pray three to five minutes a day. Compare that to the time many spend complaining, and youll gain insight into the spiritual and emotional condition of our day.
Yet God has constructed the world in such a way that there is much He wont do in a Christians life apart from prayer. Prayer, when combined with faith, can accomplish great things.
In this practical and comprehensive overview of prayer, Tony Evans covers a variety of topics, including:
- Principles of productive prayer
- The power of prayer and praise
- Fasting and prayer
- Prayer and God's purposes
Tonys expositions of various passages on prayer will help you realize its critical importance and encourage you to make it a dominant mark of your life.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Prayer as a tool to release God to actOctober 18, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I have found that books on prayer generally fall into one of two categories. Some books emphasize the sovereignty of God and understand prayer as a means of intimate relationship with God and a stimulus for character transformation and growth. Other books emphasize prayer as a means to get things to happen. This book falls into the latter category.
Evans defines prayer as the divinely authorized methodology to access heavenly authority for earthly intervention. It is the established mechanism to advance God's kingdom agenda on earth by accessing His authority in heaven and drawing it down. It is bringing into the physical what God has predetermined in the spiritual Prayer is the mechanism God has decreed for Him to release what He intends.
I have found that books emphasizing prayer as a mechanism to get things to happen on earth must somehow deal with the sovereignty of God. Evans writes, While God retains absolute sovereign authority and ownership, He has delegated relative authority to humanity within the sphere of influence that each person has been placed. He suggests the example of the bank owning our house while we are responsible for the upkeep. But that example falls flat. Do we call the bank before we mow our lawn or fix a broken window? If not, then why would we need to be in touch with God?
Evans does make some good points. We often find prayer difficult because it takes us out of the realm of our five senses and into the spiritual. We are talking to someone we cannot see and who does not speak back to us audibly. He notes that humility is one of the key ingredients to effective prayer. So are faith, authority, surrender, obedience, and trust. Evans also makes sure readers do understand that they must check in with God first before they make a move. Prayer is a tool to access God on the front end of the situations of your life. He also warns against selfish motives and suggests we give consideration to how God will be glorified.
Evans' goal in writing the book, he says, is to confront readers with the power and authority available in prayer and to motivate them to use it. He wants readers to know what their spiritual rights are. Of believers, he writes, And you are free to persistently remind Him through prayer of what is rightfully yours under His rule.
If you believe your prayers control whether God can act, you will like this book. Prayer is mostly seen as a mechanism and a tool to get God to act. If you would rather read a book that emphasizes the interpersonal love relationship between God and man that happens with prayer, you will have to look elsewhere.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
