Who Do You Turn to When You Don't Know What to Do?
Should I take that new job? How can I be a better parent? Who should I marry? How can I make ends meet? We all face hard questions that keep us up at night, not knowing where to turn for answers or if there's anyone at all who can help. But it turns out there is--the very God who created us.
The source of all wisdom and knowledge has not called us to figure out life's uncertainties for ourselves. God tells us in his Word that he longs to give us his perfect wisdom as we seek him in prayer. In this book, Daniel Henderson shares his practical approach to prayer. No matter your circumstances or the state of your relationships, God can give you the peace and direction you long for. He's just waiting for you to ask.
Includes prayer guide and questions for group discussion.
"This book on wisdom is yet another wonderful resource for the church from Daniel Henderson. Daniel draws on decades of experience in leading churches to seek the Lord through worship-based prayer rooted in the wisdom of the Scriptures."--from the foreword by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author and teacher/host of Revive Our Hearts
"Wisdom is really learning to see all of life from God's point of view--seeing every season, circumstance, and situation of life as God sees it. That is why we have to ask God for wisdom because we can't see what he sees. . . . This book on wisdom is yet another wonderful resource for the church from Daniel Henderson. Daniel draws on decades of experience in leading churches to seek the Lord through worship-based prayer rooted in the wisdom of the Scriptures."
from the foreword by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author and teacher/host of Revive Our Hearts
"The wisdom we really need may not be the wisdom we typically seek. This book will challenge your assumptions, open new windows of understanding, and realign your relationships. Filtered through the life experience of a veteran pastor and renewal leader, the practical truths in The Prayer God Loves to Answer will connect you to the life of Christ to empower you for lasting life-change."
Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church
"Daniel Henderson is a seasoned saint, a serious follower of Christ, and a profoundly humble man of God. Whenever he joins me on the show, I look forward to a thoughtful, engaging, deeper-life kind of conversation. That's why I'm thrilled about his latest book, The Prayer God Loves to Answer. He's written a timely word for the church and for those who know they need wisdom only found in Jesus, the source of all wisdom. I pray we can put as much thought into reading these words as Daniel put into writing them. Our world needs God's wisdom. Desperately. May God equip and empower you as you read!"
Susie Larson, talk radio host, national speaker, and author of Your Powerful Prayers
"Foolish choices are ruining the fabric of our nation and our lives. What we need is more of Jesus, more of his wisdom, more of his truth. Daniel Henderson delivers just that. The Prayer God Loves to Answer is a journey for wisdom and a map to some of God's greatest highlights along the way."
Lance Hahn, senior pastor of Bridgeway Christian Church and author of How to Live in Fear--Mastering the Art of Freaking Out
"Anyone who has believed the gospel must also learn to apply it to every area of their lives. With careful exposition and relentless application, Daniel Henderson explains the implications of the good news of Christ in one of the most important aspects of our journey--our everyday relationships. You won't see your relationships the same again after reading this book, and you'll be equipped to pray for much-needed wisdom in a fresh and life-transforming way."
Brian Bloye, senior pastor of West Ridge Church and coauthor of It's Personal
"I start every single day by asking God to fill me with his divine wisdom. I have learned through the years that I can do nothing without him, and I even mess that up if he doesn't fill me with wisdom. And yet, the moment I started reading Daniel's book, I immediately refocused my whole view of wisdom: It's not about me, it's all about Jesus. Every Christian who wants to grow deeper in their faith, who wants to be more fruitful and discerning and experience an abundant life, must read this book."
Karen Covell, producer and founding director of The Hollywood Prayer Network
"As a pastor and biblical counselor, I know there is no more practical guide to engaging people with the wisdom of God than through Gospel-centered prayer. In a generation of nothing more than 'give-me' prayers, it is time we seek God for more than just results, and gain perspective and wisdom for life's daily challenges. Daniel Henderson has done it again! This book is a guide for taking your eye off of yourself and gaining the greater gift God wants to give you through prayer: more of himself!"
