"This book will be like having the breath of God at your back. Let it lift you to new hope." --Dan B. Allender, PhD, author of Bold Love

This new edition includes an expanded chapter on using the practical "prayer cards"--a hallmark of the teaching found in A Praying Life--and a chapter on the need and use of prayers of lament.

Prayer is so hard that unless circumstances demand it--an illness, or saying grace at a meal--most of us simply do not pray. We prize accomplishments and productivity over time in prayer. Even Christians experience this prayerlessness--a kind of practical unbelief that leaves us marked by fear, anxiety, joylessness, and spiritual lethargy.

Prayer is all about relationship. Based on the popular seminar by the same name, A Praying Life has discipled thousands of Christians to a vibrant prayer life full of joy and power. When Jesus describes the intimacy He seeks with us, He talks about joining us for dinner (Revelation 3:20). A Praying Life feels like having dinner with good friends. It is the way we experience and connect to God. In A Praying Life, author Paul Miller lays out a pattern for living in relationship with God and includes helpful habits and approaches to prayer that enable us to return to a childlike faith.

Praying the Hours in Ordinary Life takes the reader and the worshiper on an excursion into an ancient practice. While providing a sense of the monastic life from which it is drawn, the book also provides the opportunity for individuals or groups of people to enter into the Opus Dei, the work of God: a life of prayer to which monastics have been devoted since the third century. With illustrations by artist Denise Louise Klitsie and poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke (translated by Martina Nagel), Lauralee Farrer and Clayton Schmit have provided a resource that allows believers to engage in a twenty-four hour pilgrimage of prayer, joining those whose life's work is to pray without ceasing.

Praying the Names of God

$3.40
Sale 20% off

A twenty-six-week devotional study by the bestselling coauthor of Women of the Bible. Names in the ancient world did more than simply distinguish one person from another, they often conveyed the essential nature and character of a person. This is especially true when it comes to the names of God recorded in the Bible.

Praying the Names of God explores the primary names and titles of God in the Old Testament to reveal the deeper meanings behind them. El Shaddai, Elohim, Adonai, Abba, El Elyon--God Almighty, Mighty Creator, Lord, Father, God Most High--these are just a few of the names and titles of God that yield rich insights into his nature and character.

Praying the Names of God shows readers how to study and pray God's names by focusing each week on one of the primary names or titles of God:

- Monday--readers study a portion of Scripture that reveals the name.

- Tuesday-Thursday--readers pray specific Scripture passages related to the name.

- Friday--readers pray Scripture promises connected to the name.

By incorporating the divine names and titles into their prayers--and learning about the biblical context in which the name was revealed--readers will gain a more intimate understanding of who God is and how he can be relied on in every circumstance of their lives. Praying the Names of God is a unique devotional, one that offers a rich program of daily prayer and study designed to lead people into fresh encounters with the living God.

Sale 20% off

As parents of adult children, we often wonder: Will my children make good choices when they're on their own? How can I let them go when I've held them for so long?

Parent and author Jodie Berndt understands what it's like to release children into the world and still care deeply about them and everything they will face in life from relationships to career decisions and everything in between. In Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children, Jodie continues her Praying the Scriptures series with biblical prayers for your adult children, whether they are just leaving the nest, flying well on their own, or struggling to take off at all.

Each section focuses on a different aspect of adulthood, with encouraging stories from experienced parents who are praying their children through rocky marriages, health concerns, financial challenges and other real-life issues. At the end of each chapter, you'll find personalized prayers for your children taken straight from Scripture. Each chapter also includes verses for you to pray for yourself as you take the challenging step of trusting God to care for your children in ways that you can't.

With grace and wisdom, Jodie addresses cultural trends such as couples living together before marriage and young adults leaving the church, as well as the painful realities of loneliness, addiction, and mental health issues. With hope-filled words for the parents of the prodigal, she is particularly sensitive to the long-term prayers we offer, even as we doubt ourselves and grieve over our children's choices.

Whatever you are praying for, you will find confidence and peace in these powerful prayers for your kids. Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children guides you to the bedrock of God's promises as you release your children to God's shepherding care.

When Life Gets Too Hard to Stand, Kneel

You are called to be a prayer warrior. But which name should you call upon?

God has more than one name--each represents a different aspect of His character. When you know which name to call, you will pray more effectively, and more specifically to your need.

In this book, Dr. Tony Evans provides tools to transform your prayer life as you get to know God in new ways. You will...

  • experience God as Jehovah Jireh, "the Lord will provide."
  • allow God to be El Simchatch Gili, "God my exceeding joy."
  • make God Your Jehovah Ori, "the Lord my light."
  • know peace through Jehovah Shalon, "the Lord our peace."
  • take God as your power source as Jehovah Uzzi, "the Lord my strength."
  • make wiser decisions by sitting at the feet of Peleh Yo'etz, "Wonderful Counselor."
  • Revitalize your prayer life by connecting your needs with the characteristics of God's names!

    Sale 20% off

    Joy and despair, faith and doubt, love and hate--the book of Psalms covers the range of human emotions. In Psalms for Life, John Eaton explores the poetry of the Psalms as a never-failing source of challenge, comfort, and encouragement. Beginning with Psalm 1 and continuing through Psalm 150, he provides a short reflection on each psalm, distilling and explaining the poet's essential message. He ends each meditation with a brief prayer.

    As a distinguished biblical scholar who has studied the Psalms all his life, Eaton writes with warmth, clarity, and authority. As a Christian, he sees the Psalms as prophetic of Christ, revealing vital and often little-known facets of his life and character. As a sensitive and skillful teacher, he draws out the full significance of these ancient songs as a source of wisdom and insight for all who live the Christian life today.
