When You Need to Move a Mountain
Keys to Praying with Power
How to bring your burdens to God--and expect answers
There's prayer--and then there's intercessory prayer, the kind of prayer you pray when you need to move a mountain for yourself or a loved one. What do you pray at such a time? What secrets do you need to know to pray effectively? And what response should you expect from God?
In this practical and encouraging book, Linda Evans Shepherd explains what intercessory prayer is, how to pray as an intercessor, and how to experience victory. With chapters devoted to praying for family, others, provision, health, breakthroughs, salvation of loved ones, church, community, country, and more, you'll quickly find the specific help you need to pray for the needs close to your heart. You'll also learn how to develop your own intercessory prayer battle strategy and to celebrate each victory with thanksgiving.

"An expression has been circulating in the Christian community: 'pray small.' Personally, I think God wants us to pray BIG. Jesus healed people of diseases, and he brought people back to life. Our God knows how to give good gifts--and his Son encouraged us to pray prayers that would move mountains. In her newest book on prayer, Linda Shepherd challenges us to pray those mountain-moving prayers, and I highly recommend that you read it and put those big prayers into practice."
Janet Holm McHenry, award-winning speaker and author of 24 books, including the bestselling PrayerWalk and her newest, The Complete Guide to the Prayers of Jesus

"Just when my prayer life seems a little lackluster and routine, I read Linda's book, When You Need to Move a Mountain. It's a fresh breath of the Holy Spirit to reenergize your prayer life. She reminds us of many ways to pray and the supernatural power of our almighty miracle-working God to answer prayers. She also shares about types of pray-ers who are called to pray in different ways with different focuses. She provides great tools to energize our prayers. Identifying prayer blockers to overcome, such as sin problems, lack of faith, and forgiveness issues allows readers to address those issues and become effective prayer warriors."
