Every believer who sincerely desires an intimate relationship with God must discover the transformational power of prayer. This one-hundred-day devotional, inspired by Mike Bickle’s best-selling book Growing in Prayer, will give readers daily inspiration, knowledge, and guidance to help them cultivate deeper intimacy with God through prayer.
Each day contains a quote on prayer from a classic Christian author, a passage from a chapter in Growing in Prayer for reflection, a Scripture verse or reference, a prayer starter, a suggestion for practical application of the principle being taught, and lines for journaling.

This devotional will help energize a prayer life that has become routine, stale, or nonexistent and will be a welcome resource for believers who desire to grow in prayer.

My thoughts:

Now this is more along the lines of what I was looking for when I wanted something to challenge me to grow in prayer.

I always enjoy Mike Bickle’s perspective and this book is no exception.

Mike’s simple, but meaningful, steps will take you deeper into a more intentional prayer life with God. It will remind you that you can pray at any time and you don’t have to be perfect. Out prayers move angels, how cool is that?

If you want to be more intentional  with your prayer life I encourage you to pick up this book and dive in each day, it only takes as long as you want it to.

God’s Answer to the Growing Crisis by Mike Bickle November 16, 2016

The dramatic shifts seen over the last few years—from economic to political to moral to beyond—have set the stage for a crisis that will affect every sphere of society. But this crisis isn’t just looming in the United States; all of humanity is at a crossroads like never before.

Mike Bickle, director of the International House of Prayer of Kansas City, offers God’s definitive answer to this approaching global crisis. He provides a fresh biblical perspective on:The agenda to secularize and de-Christianize America. What the upsurge of secular humanism looks like. The rise of ISIS and Islamic extremists. The looming financial crisis. Readers will overcome fear and confusion in the last days and learn to pray effectively for this nation and the world.

My thoughts:

If you are bothered by all you seeing going on around you in this world, this is a must read.

Mike talks about everything that is wrong with our world. But I will say after hearing about what is going on in some other countries I see we aren’t as bad as I thought. However, we are headed in the same direction, unfortunately.

This book will open your eyes to the slippery slope America is on.

This book does offer hope as well. We as believers, need to step up and speak out for what we know is right. I do believe that has happened recently, but I think it needs to happen more and more.

Mike focuses on Psalm 2 and how that is a prophetic passage into what is going and what will happen in our world.

If you want a book to challenge your thinking and open your eyes I highly recommend this one.
