Praying God's Promises
The Life-Changing Power of Praying the Scriptures
Prayer changes things. Praying God's promises changes everything.
The Scriptures tell us that when we pray the will of God, he delights to answer our prayers. But what is God's will in any given situation? How can we know it? And if we don't know it, how can we pray it?
In this inspiring book, Linda Evans Shepherd reveals that God's will is not a mystery--it's clearly laid out in his Word through his many promises. Through stories, practical application, examples of prayers, and guided reflection, she leads you toward a more powerful prayer life. Arranged by topic for ease of use, this book shows how to pray God's promises of peace, for health, for relationships, for our children, and so much more.
Shepherd also includes a chapter on God's powerful answers to prayer that will inspire you to search the Scriptures, pray God's will, and wait expectantly for his promised answers.
