"Do NOT read this book if you want information. Read this book only if you desire a transformation. It will drive you to your knees."

                                                                                                                                          Dr. Ergun M.Caner

Format: Paperback
Dave Earley in "Prayer: The Timeless Secret of High-Impact Leaders" has identified nine prayer disciplines found in the lives of over seventy leaders, including examples from the Old and New Testaments as well as Christian leaders from the past and present.

Each chapter includes application questions, worksheets and guidelines to help the reader "focus, stretch, rekindle, and renew" their prayer life. David also includes anecdotes and quotes found in their writings and in their biographies. Biblical leaders include lessons from Gideon, Daniel, David, Peter, and Paul.

Augustine, John Bunyan, John Calvin and Jonathan Edwards are classic examples of men of prayer quoted throughout the book. Henry Blackaby, Billy Graham, Jack Hayford, and Charles Swindoll are representative of the more contemporary prayer warriors included.

I found the chapter entitled "Build on the Basics" particularly beneficial. As the title suggests the many elements of prayer were included. The suggestions for "applying" make this a valuable tool to return to often while rediscovering the truth of Oswald Sanders observation, "Prayer influences men by influencing God to influence them."

Dave is articulate and a skilled communicator. I appreciated the natural flow of his writing. Whether drawing attention to an important scripture passage, a powerful quotation, or when drawing an illustration from his experience I found myself engaged in the application. The final chapter includes: prayer life lessons, a prayer life inventory, a prayer life assessment, a prayer life application, and a prayer life goal.

Dave Earley's writing conveys a genuine and intimate relationship with the Savior and a heart concern for motivating Christian leaders to "pray more fervently, more frequently, more effectively, and more contagiously than ever before." This is a book for high-impact leaders at every level of ministry and influence

Format: Paperback
Prayer is the most commonly associated action with spiritual practice. From priests in cathedrals to monks secluded on arctic mountains, there is no more sought after, elevated, or neglected portal in our connection with the divine. As a Christian the methodology and nuance of prayer are laid out through the efforts and written practices of our Old Testament heritage. Men of power and purpose throughout the Hebrew Scriptures were men of intense prayer. Their influence and authority was the obvious product of effectual and patterned prayer lives. The very unfolding of God's intention and will were found and executed through prayer and there is no question that the truly spiritual life is the one abundant in connection and communication with God. In the New Testament prayer takes on even greater impetus. It becomes the lifeblood of decisions on leadership, mission, and strategy. It is also the initiator behind the works of the Holy Spirit and displayed glory of God. (Acts 2:42, 3:24,31, 9:40, etc.) Jesus himself was a man of prayer, giving us a pattern of constant and eve interruptive prayer, as if the mission in life wasn't carried along by great displays of power or activity but instead the Apostles are often found finding him in prayer or losing his attention on the immediate to go and find a place to pray. Dr. Early breaks down these models and patterns into disciplines that not only shaped the events of Scripture but also the great movements and work of God throughout Church History.

Dr. Early's work covers prayer from a large historical and movement specific context. Each chapter lays out a separate discipline and purpose, starting with the "Value of Prayer" and moving consecutively through eight additional practices.

Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a great book to amp up the effectiveness of your prayer life, I highly recommend reading Dave Earley's book Prayer: The Timeless Secret of High-Impact Leaders. Here's a brief summary of what to expect:

Dave Earley's book, Prayer: The Timeless Secret of High-Impact Leaders, presents a plethora of practical, biblically grounded insights, best practices, and recommendations for Christian believers / leaders. Throughout the book, Earley lays out the foundation and rationale for pursuing an effective prayer life and, thus, leaves readers convinced that there is "no spiritual tool [sic] as significant or powerful as prayer."

As spiritual leaders, free time is typically a luxury that is hard to come by. Nonetheless, Earley provides examples from the lives of our preceding spiritual leaders (e.g., Wesley, Calvin, Luther) that prove we are, in fact, too busy not to pray. For the readers that perhaps do not know where to begin, Earley provides a series of recommendations based upon the effective prayer lives of our Lord and others. From topics such as choosing an ideal location to pray...to the model of an effective prayer (e.g., A.C.T.S. model derived from the Lord's Prayer), Earley leaves little room for question in the minds of his readers.

In addition, Earley emphasizes the importance of leaders praying for those they serve as well as training others to pray for them. Regarding some of the most influential spiritual leaders within the bible, Earley says, "If we want to lead like Moses, Paul, or Jesus, we need to pray like Moses, Paul, and Jesus. Like them we must pray for our followers.
