Your Powerful Prayers
Reaching the Heart of God with a Bold and Humble Faith
The all-powerful God of the universe loves us and wants to talk with us--but it doesn't always seem that way. Why is prayer so hard at times? And why are some prayers answered while others are not? Susie Larson knows the struggle. But through the years she has learned to pray with confidence and joy, approaching God as His beloved child.
In this warm and wise book, Susie shares how you, too, can reach the heart of God. Discover how to:
· Pray more persistently, humbly, and boldly
· Overcome common hindrances to effective prayer
· Combine reverence, expectancy, and a tenacious hold on God's promises
Prayer isn't merely a means to an end. God invites you to an intimate and profound dialogue with Him, to experience His movement in your life, and to know His overwhelming joy, power, and peace. Experience God's presence as He strengthens your faith, encourages your heart, and shifts your perspective.
Includes reflection questions for personal or group use. A DVD study companion is also available separately.
"If you long for a more intimate relationship with God, this book will be a gift to your soul."
Sheila Walsh, bestselling author and Bible teacher
"I suspect the enemy of our souls will do all he can to keep believers away from this excellent book. Susie Larson has a word for you--a wonderful word of strength, hope, and an empowered prayer life."
Dr. Mark Rutland, New York Times bestselling author
"Before Susie Larson writes anointed, life-changing, Scripture-soaked words like the ones you'll read in this book, she lives and breathes them onto the pages of her life and into the hearts of those around her. I have been one of the blessed recipients of her words, wisdom, and brazen faith, and my life will never be the same because of Susie's prayers over me. And now, neither will yours! Drawing from the riches of God's Word and the power of His Spirit, Susie will empower and equip you to rise up and boldly claim what is yours in Christ through powerful prayers that move the heart of God!"
Renee Swope, word-Lover, grace-needer, and bestselling author of A Confident Heart
"Your Powerful Prayers truly is powerful! Susie Larson does more than simply talk about prayer. She teaches us how to pray and reveals the miraculous ways God answers our prayers. Deep biblical truths and meaningful stories are woven throughout this life-changing resource. You'll write 'Yes!' across every page. I did!"
Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
"If you read only one book this year, make it this one! Susie Larson has poured her passion, her strong commitment to God's truth, and her unquenchable belief in the strength of prayer into this remarkable resource. Apply the principles in this book and you'll discover how to listen to God's voice through Scripture and how to pray God's Word. I highly recommend it for personal and for small group study. Your Powerful Prayers will transform the way you talk to God."
Carol Kent, speaker and author of When I Lay My Isaac Down
"I read this book early in the morning when the clutter of distraction was yet to invade my head and heart. Each page reinforced something I've known about the author. Susie is a good friend--approachable and authentic, encouraging and empathetic, faithful and fun. But most of all, she is the kind of friend who doesn't disguise her friendship with Jesus. This book lacks camouflage and costumes, makeup and masks. It's clear and concise, and I found myself thinking about it the rest of the day."
Jon Weece, author and lead follower at Southland Christian Church, Kentucky
"You will love this book. . . . This is a woman with a real prayer life."
