I've read this book 2 times (the only reason I haven't read it more is because I keep loaning it to people) and each time I get more and more stirred up...by what God is doing around the world and in the church as He stirs the heart of this generation to pray.
The comments I most hear from people who've read it have to do with the sense of freedom that people feel in this thing as well as a sense of unity & interconnectedness within the church. It's not about just one church gathering it's people together to pray for their particular needs (although that has value, too), it's more about the church, globally, connecting...regardless of denomination, doctrine, etc. and supporting one another as they reach out to their communities.
It also speaks to the cry of this generation to touch a hurting and lost world...not standing on the street corner passing out tracts, but in real ways...feeding the hungry, helping the poor, sitting with & praying for the drug addict that's just overdosed, etc.
If you have a heart to see God move in this generation, read this book and you'll be convinced He can do it through you.
Reading this book made me feel more connected to my dreams than ever before as I read about things I've seen in my heart for years, but wondered if I would ever see with my eyes. It reminded me to continue to dream, and to be confident that as I persue God's heart I will hold those dreams in my hands as reality. It reminded me that I'm not alone, that I'm in one tiny part of the big picture of God being revealed throughout the earth. Everyone should read this book.
This book focuses on the that movement. The book is essentially "faith building stories" meant to inhance your passion for prayer. The tone of the book is one of conversations on prayer and shows people not just talking about prayer but actually seeking the heart of God for this generation. Miracles, salvation, etc. will only come, writes the author, when the children of God hunger for God in prayer. The book's stories do increase your heart for prayer as you see what ordinary people are doing for the kingdom through prayer.
The problems with this book are twofold for me. First, I would have appreciated a greater focus on the Word of God about prayer. People can pray but we must pray biblically (1 John 5:14-15). Prayer can become nothing more than mysticism when you abandon what the Scriptures teach about prayer. Further, prayer can be experience based instead of Bible based and then it leads only to failure when the emotions run out. We are to pray because God has said for us to do so in His Word (1 Thessalonians 5:17) and not just because of experiences or the stories of others.
Second, the author tends to have some emergent leanings. In fact, he recommends Brian McLaren in this book.Read more ›
I appreciate the authors not pulling any punches; there is grit in this story. Hands are getting dirty and there are some disappointments for these prayer pioneers... but they are unapologetic nor are they self-serving in offering glimspes of the costs and sacrifices in their obedience.
And what is also clearly depicted in this nonfiction account of these prayer rooms cropping up around the world is that God is building this: opening doors, giving provision and the faith to continue forward to encourage and bless others who are hearing the call to night and day prayer.
Get the book, you will not be disappointed. We have our own prayer initiative underway locally ([...]) and it was tremendously encouraging to read how others are responding to this call to minister to God via sustained worship and intercession. As you read this, don't be surprised to find your eyes lifted to heaven and the whisper of Christ calling you to stand before Him in a similar way in your own city.
