How to pray confidently and expectantly to the God who always hears--and always answers

They were just ordinary people--a loyal servant, a woman who desperately wanted a child, an old man who still had hope, a young teenager who couldn't quite believe God's great love, and others--ordinary people who prayed extraordinary prayers to an extraordinary God. They weren't always eloquent. They weren't always the type of person you might think God would listen to. But they trusted God and his plans for their lives, and that made all the difference.

Life-Changing Prayers tells their stories and shares their desperate, hopeful, and gratitude-filled prayers, inspiring and emboldening us to ask God for the desires of our own hearts.


"Life-Changing Prayers will make you rethink how and why you pray and bring you closer to God in the process."--Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker; lead pastor, National Community Church

"Dr. Youssef's latest book is a most practical and encouraging book on prayer. I kept thinking of William Cowper's words as I read it: 'Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.' This book will become a classic."--Dr. R. T. Kendall, minister, Westminster Chapel (1977-2002)

"There's probably no more important topic for the day we live in than why and how God answers prayer. Michael Youssef's Life-Changing Prayers will create both inspiration and faith to find out for yourself just how great our God is!"--Jim Cymbala

Endorsements

"Most of us are ordinary, yet God can use us in extraordinary ways. Michael Youssef reminds us of this lesson through the stories of seven biblical figures whose lives were changed by one important action--prayer. Life-Changing Prayers will make you rethink how and why you pray and bring you closer to God in the process."

Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker; lead pastor, National Community Church

"What liberating truth is found within the covers of this new book by Michael Youssef. God uses ordinary people to call down extraordinary results from God through the dynamic medium of prayer. That means He can actually use me . . . and you! Read it and you will agree with me that this is no ordinary book. It is passionate and penetrating, insightful and inspiring. Read it . . . and reap!"

Dr. O. S. Hawkins, president and CEO, Guidestone Financial Resources; author of the bestselling Joshua Code and the entire Code series

"This book is addressed to ordinary people, challenging them to pray 'life-changing' prayers. Because I consider myself ordinary, I like this book. It is written for me. This book challenges a need in my heart to pray. If you consider yourself an ordinary Christian, Michael Youssef can lift your intercession to a higher level of effectiveness."

Elmer L. Towns, cofounder and vice president, Liberty University

"Dr. Youssef's latest book is a most practical and encouraging book on prayer. I kept thinking of William Cowper's words as I read it: 'Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees.' After you read Michael's book, you will want to buy copies to give to every young Christian you know. And yet it will equally encourage every mature Christian as well because we all have much to learn about the mystery of prayer. This book will become a classic."

Dr. R. T. Kendall, minister, Westminster Chapel (1977-2002)

"There's probably no more important topic for the day we live in than why and how God answers prayer. Michael Youssef's Life-Changing Prayers will create both inspiration and faith to find out for yourself just how great our God is!"
