Author: Will Davis, Jr.
Publisher: Revell

Genre: Inspirational/prayer

God, please bless Tom, and be with Bill today, and…

Are we praying weak, vague prayers? Saying things like “Just be with Bob” or “Bless Janet in her time of need”? God wants us to be specific in our prayers, stating what Bob or Janet need.

The author also recommends not just settling asking just once. Yes, God knows, but Mr. Davis recommends putting the request before God often. He also recommends quoting the Bible back to God, reminding Him of His promises.

God wants us to be bold and direct in our prayers, praying what Mr. Davis calls Big, bold, audacious prayers, asking God specifically for what we need. And he shows us through the Lord’s prayer how Jesus recommended that we ask specifically.

If you are a surface prayer, and looking for a more powerful, deeper, more fulfilling prayer life, then PRAY BIG is a book you need to pick up. This book will help you as you learn to ask for big miracles, how to call on God with focus and confidence, whether you are praying for yourself or for other people.

Each chapter concludes with questions for you to consider, or for use with small group discussions. There is no room to write your thoughts or answers, so you will want to keep a notebook and pen close by for making notes while studying this book. 100 pinpoint prayers from the Psalms are included at the end of the book. Highly recommended. $12.99. 199 pages.
