Want to have a better understanding of God's heart? Read this book!
on October 7, 2011
Another great book by Jason Frenn! I have learned so much about God and the wonderful principles that He has laid out for us in the Bible because of the work Jason has done for us. He has made it so easy for people like me to learn. We should never stop studying the Bible, but I highly recommend that we use other resources as well to help us understand God's heart better and I believe Jason's book helps us do just that. I trust all of his books because the teachings are biblical.
I have my own personal testimony of how God answered prayer at a time when I was hitting rock bottom. I had spent many years walking in darkness of severe depression. I was tormented by suicidal thoughts, and all I knew what to do for relief was to drink until I was numb enough so I would no longer feel the pain from the huge hole I had in my heart. I knew it was only a temporary form of relief and I knew it would only make me feel worse later, but I still did it. Although I felt like I just wanted to die to end the suffering, deep inside, I really didn't want to die. I finally came to a point where my health was being affected and I was really tired of the way I was living my life. I tried so hard to stop drinking on my own, but I had been doing it for so long it was impossible. I finally realized that I needed God's help to get out of the mess I had gotten myself into. It wasn't until I finally surrendered my will to His, when I started seeing true miracles take place in my life. I am no longer depressed, no longer suicidal, and I no longer drink. I didn't have to go through a program to stop drinking--it is truly a 100% miracle that I can say I've been sober for just over 1½ years now. Only God can make that happen!
What God did for me, He will do for anybody who seeks Him with their whole heart and learns to pray in accordance to His will. This is why I'm so excited about this new book! I want others to experience breakthroughs like I have, there are so many out there seeking answers but they just don't know how to pray in a way that God will answer them. I believe this book will change lives in powerful ways, and I believe that because of my own experiences. I may not need the Prayer for Freedom chapter, but some of the other prayers laid out in this book are already helping me in other areas of my life. Just like Jason's previous books, God is ministering to me through this one as well. I am grateful for what I'm learning.
I want to encourage you to give this book a chance so you can also learn to pray in a way that God will answer. I believe He will transform your life like He did mine. When He does, don't forget to give Him the glory and share it with others!
