The Great Exchange – Why Your Prayer Requests May Not Be Getting Answers

The Prayer Closet – Creating a Personal Prayer Room
What we seek is more than mere words or even a disciplined, noble routine. Prayer is not something we do, it is someone we are with. And that needs a place!

 

 

Simple Radical Prayer
There is power through persistent prayer, prayer that is beyond us, bigger than us, prayer by pure-hearted, but less than perfect saintly people, passionate and intense prayer, prayer that we do not even understand, prayer that stretches our perspective of things and calls us into the mysterious ways of God.

 

 

Entertaining God and Influencing Cities
“Prayer is not about words and requests”, says Doug Small in Entertaining God and Influencing Cities. “It is not even the first and foremost about intercession. That will come. Prayer is about hosting God in a world from which He has been excluded. In prayer, you declare that God is not only welcome, but He is invited…you host Him in your heart and your home, the church and your corporation.”
