Publisher's Description

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.

    As believers we understand the importance and power of prayer even when it seems at times that God is silent or He is preoccupied but we know He isn't. It is the greatest weapon any believer in Jesus Christ possesses and the one we often times fail to utilize until it becomes a last resort or with less than heartfelt pleas included. We often times get disillusioned with waiting on answers as if we believe we are owed an immediate and positive response time from God. The one thing that really hit home for me while dealing with multiple crises at the same time, it that waiting is the hardest thing to do but we must not give up on prayer. In the Bible, Daniel waited on an answer for prayer which was dispatched from heaven immediately but due to a spiritual war that was happening that Daniel knew nothing about, he received his answer 21 days later, even though it was answered immediately from heaven.

    That is not to say that all answers of prayer are impacted in the spiritual realm, but it is a reminder that waiting may be required in some cases. In others, the answers are immediate and to our liking and in yet others, the answer is not what we had hoped and we find ourselves much like Job, wondering where it all went belly up. But the greatest hope and weapon we have is prayer, constant, consistent and with a partner. This can be with your family members, your spouse, friends or an entire body of believers. When we partner in prayer, the Bible reminds us that we stand in the presence of God at that moment even though we can not see it. It is the most powerful prayer we can use in any situation and nothing is too great or too small for a prayer.

    In the book, the 40 Day Prayer Challenge by authors and husband and wife, SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt, they are reminding us about the true value and life changing things that can happen when we partner in prayer for simple 5 minutes a day for 40 days. They are sharing the results through an online survey with Baylor University's Institute for the Study of Religion to see what happens during the 40 days challenge. I know for my husband and I that began this as a couple, we didn't see much happen at first, but then we noticed that we drew closer in a way that is hard to explain other than to say we are much more spiritually stronger, pray more over everything and have seen first hands the results on answered prayer and the strong of our faith and marriage grow since doing this.

    I received The 40 Day Prayer Challenge by SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside from a free copy of this book, in exchange for my personal and honest evaluation. The book is broken down to help readers partner in different ways from married couples, singles with friends, family members praying together, and even small church groups or Bible study classes. There is such great resources available from Scripture references and even sample prayers to help get people started on their 40 day journey. The best part is the true life stories of how prayer has impacted the lives of those that have incorporated prayer into the lives and some have been brought back from the verge of death to be given a second chance. This is a perfect resource for those looking at how to incorporate prayer into their lives more and highlights the results of what can happen over 40 days. I know you'll be more than surprised at the results in your own life as we were in our own and for that reason this one gains all 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.

    SQuire Rushnell & Louise DuArt in their new book The 40 Day Prayer Challenge published by Howard Books gives us Unlocking the Power of Partnered Prayer.

    From the inside jacket flap: From one of the beloved creators of Schoolhouse Rock and the popular GodWink series, New York Times bestselling author SQuire Rushnell teams up with his wife Louise DuArt for The 40 Day Prayer Challengea simple yet powerful idea that encourages partners to pray together for just five minutes a day for forty days.

    SQuire and Louise have practiced daily prayer together for sixteen years. Now, they offer readers step-by-step advice on where, when, and what words to use in praying with another person: be it a spouse, loved one, family member, or a friend. In a straight-forward fashion, with astonishing examples of how Partnered Prayer can restore relationships and revitalize families, countless questions are answered including:

    -How do we start praying together?

    -Can we pray about anything?

    -How do I get my mate to pray with me?

    -Does romance get better when you pray together?

    -Is there scientific evidence for prayer?

    -What if my prayers arent answered?

    In association with several prominent mega-churches and Baylor Universitys Institute for the Studies of Religion, SQuire and Louise are initiating the first empirical research study ever done on the effects of prayer among two people over an extended period. The 40 Day Prayer Challenge also provides a no-cost online opportunity to participate in the ongoing study. When the fun and transformational challenge finishes at forty days, prayer partners will receive a scorecard on how well they did, and join others in experiencing the amazing, wonderful things that happen during Partnered Prayer.

    This book is designed for partners to develop a daily habit of speaking together with God. If we are willing to commit to as little as five minutes a day speaking with God about issues of concern and praising Him for blessings we received since yesterday the joy in our lives will expand immeasurably. No doubt about it a lot of us when we pray we do it silently and we do it alone. We need to change our praying to out loud .His promise is in the Bible: Whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. The authors tell us: Lets look at the key words to opening your gift: first, to ask in prayerthrough the power of the spoken word; second, to believe that God is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do; and third, to expect to receive whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer. There are eight chapters that focus our attention on How Partnered Prayer Works, How to Pray, The Benefits Of Prayer and Who should pray and what we should expect to happen in the Spirit Realm both pro and con. The 40 Day Prayer Challenge is not a time-consuming read. If we use what is being taught here correctly it will so helpful to properly channel our energies in the right direction. It is perfect to give as gifts to family and friends that they, also, will have their prayer lives expanded and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!

    The book shares with readers the scientific results of people who pray together along with testimonies shared of answered prayer. The prayer challenge can be between spouses, friends, family members or even co-workers. Inside the book is shared how people need to speak it, believe it and those who do should expect to receive the answer to their prayer.

    There are various Scripture portions shared on each of speaking, believing and receiving prayer points. The challenge encourages people to speak their prayer out loud. To the authors, it is the equivalent of causing the prayer to arrive to the Almighty quicker. I do believe that prayer does affect us, change us and in some ways that can be documented and in others not so much.

    I would suggest you have your Bile ready to read the verses in their contexts to make sure nothing is written that is out of the context of the noted verse or verses. Remember, the only book God inspired is the Bible; therefore, it is the only God-breathed Word. God uses man to write His Word for us today so let us be Bereans and check whoever and whenever we are taught something regardless of the how we receive the teaching.

    While I appreciate the fact that the authors are really highlighting prayer between just two people and to see what God does, there is something I object to. There is no Scripture that says if we pray a specific way over another there is more power or God pays closer attention. I also know of no particular verse that says prayer is to be spoken out loud compared to speaking to God silently.

    God will hear our prayers when we ask for our hearts desire, believe He hears, and know you will get an answer. Just be aware that sometimes the answer is yes, no or wait. Remember we can come boldly before the throne, but not arrogantly demand from the Lord God to have our own way. Submit to Him and let Him lead you, obey whatever He directs you to do or not do and leave the results in His hands.
