Partner with God to Change Your World

Never underestimate the power of prayer. Prayer connects us to God and His heart for our needs and the needs of others nearby and around the world. Where there is an absence of prayer, there is an absence of God's power. Where there is frequency of prayer, there is a continuing display of His power.

Using proven instruction on prayer, related Scripture, inspirational prayer prompts and practical recommendations to put your faith into action, Talking with God invites you to saturate your family, neighborhood and nation with targeted intercession.

Empower and transform your prayer life through 12 prayer focuses that will help you to revere God's nature, wait in silent surrender, pray Scripture, intercede for others, give thanks, receive spiritual guidance, magnify your loving Creator and more. Nothing is beyond your reach when you talk with God through prayer.


"I've known Dick Eastman for more than fifty years. He teaches what he has done. I highly endorse the man, his ministry and his book. He is a world changer, and his ministry of writing will minister a life-changing spirit to you as well."

Loren Cunningham, founder, Youth With A Mission

"Dick Eastman is one of my heroes, a man of prayer who prays boldly and puts feet to his prayers. This book offers each of us the secret sauce, giving both practical and biblical insight for how we can speak to God and how He, in turn, speaks to us. My prayer is that a new generation of biblical intercessors will be awakened."

Nick Hall, founder and chief communicator, Pulse; president and CEO, The Table Coalition

"The Hour That Changes the World has literally taught the nations how to pray--not just providing model prayers, but teaching how to pray with Jesus. This new book, Talking with God, is right on time. We will be using the wisdom and knowledge in this book until the Lord Himself comes back to get us!"

Ricky Skaggs, American country and bluegrass singer

"Talking with God could well be the most practical book ever written on prayer. As involved as I am in leading people to pray, I have discovered that, while it may not be easy to convince people to pray for an hour each day, it is easy to convince them to pray for five minutes. Dick's plan of putting 12 five-minute biblical aspects of prayer together to form an hour of prayer has helped millions grow their prayer lives significantly, just as it has mine. I am blessed to have Dick as mentor and friend. Read this book; live this book--and change your world!"

Mike Bickle, International House of Prayer

"When we pray, we release the power of God to work on our behalf. As believers, we need to take prayer seriously. That's why I highly recommend Dick Eastman's book Talking with God. In it, he shows you how to make prayer a priority in your life. This book is an important and valuable tool that will lead you into a deeper, more intimate relationship with God."

Robert Morris, senior pastor, Gateway Church; bestselling author, The Blessed Life, Beyond Blessed and Take the Day Off

"Talking with God describes how even one hour with God each day can change your life and impact your nation. In South Korea, I have witnessed this phenomenon. Dreams, visions, creative ideas and the release of burdens are some of the miraculous experiences that you can have if you give God one hour a day. Dick Eastman has impacted our world with his prayers and his teachings on prayer. His unrelenting passion to be with God, communicate with God and discover God's marvelous Kingdom principles has been perhaps one of the greatest examples in our generation of a man who seeks the heart of God. Talking with God should be read over and over as you seek a closer walk with the Creator of the universe."

Yonggi Cho, Yoido Full Gospel Church, Seoul, Korea

"I first read The Hour That Changes the World in 1992, and it changed my life forever. Dick Eastman's simple guide to spending an hour with God every day gave me the structure and discipline I sorely lacked. After the Bible, I consider it the most impactful book about prayer ever written."

Brian Alarid, president, America Prays and World Prays

"My journey with Dick Eastman into Kingdom prayer started forty years ago. I've feasted on his teachings. Even more, for decades the two of us have served together in the international prayer movement. Best of all, we've joined to spend whole days to seek more of the reign of Christ. I can boldly promise you his insights will transform your prayer life forever."

David Bryant, president, Proclaim Hope!; director,; author, Christ Is Now!

"When I think of Dick Eastman, two things come to mind. One is his leadership of an organization that oversees the spread of the Gospel to 130 million homes per year. The other is his incredible commitment to prayer--which I think helps explain why God works through Every Home for Christ so dramatically. He is very qualified to teach how to talk with God."

Steve Douglass, Campus Crusade for Christ
