From the Back Cover

"God makes the impossible possible every day."--from the foreword by Don Piper, bestselling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven

When we hurt, we want a God who is big enough to rescue us from heartache and circumstances beyond our imagination. But even if we believe that such a God exists, we don't always know how to approach him, much less how to ask him for the impossible.

Linda Evans Shepherd knows what it's like to be in desperate need of a miracle. And she knows what it's like to receive God's answers to her prayers. In this powerful book, she shows you how to reach out to God and simply ask. She shows how God's answers may not come packaged in the ways we would expect, but they do come in ways that will transform our lives. Through solid biblical teaching and dramatic real-life stories, Shepherd walks with you on a journey of renewed hope and the assurance that God still works miracles.


"Linda's book gave me all of the tools for asking, waiting, and receiving extraordinary answers to prayer--not always in the way I was expecting--but with life-changing, transformational results. . . . Miracles still happen."--Carol Kent, speaker and author of Between a Rock and a Grace Place

"This practical book eases our fears about miracles, shows us how to ask for and expect miracles, and strengthens our faith as we wait for them to happen. Be informed, refreshed, and inspired."--Thelma Wells, DD (Hon), president of A Woman of God Ministries

More About the Author

LINDA EVANS SHEPHERD AUTHOR PAGE


Linda Evans Shepherd, known as 'The Prayer Author and Speaker,' is an ACFW Carol Award winner for her fiction. She has published thirty books, including her bestselling When You Don't Know What to Pray and landed in Crossings 2010 top ten books of the year. In addition, her book When You Can't Find God -- Igniting the Power of His Presence won the 2012 Selah Christian Living Award and her latest When You Need a Miracle -- How to Ask God for the Impossible won the 2013 Selah Christian Living Award.

Linda is the creator and cowriter of the bestselling novel series The Potluck Club and The Potluck Catering Club. She is also the author behind the bestseller, Share Jesus Without Fear, which she wrote with Bill Fay.

Christian Retailing compared Linda to both Beth Moore and Stormy Omartian while radio host John DeBrine, compared Linda to a little lady he met in the sixties by the name of Corrie ten Boom.

Patsy Clairmont says, "There is a bubbling up of Jesus-Joy that exudes from Linda that is absolutely contagious. I love her blend of humor and heart, and I stand back amazed at her "go tell the world" determination."

Linda saw God turn the "pits" of her life into stepping stones following a car crash that left her then infant daughter in a year-long coma before she awoke. Today, Linda's daughter is 27-years-old and Linda is a respected author. Linda is the President of Right to the Heart Ministries which oversees the work of AWSA (Advanced Writers and Speakers Association). Besides AWSA, the ministry includes the work of GodTest.com and the blogs FindingGodDaily.com, and ThinkingAboutSuidicide.com. Linda also runs the blog Got to Pray which highlights her prayer books. She is also the president of the Fabulous Speakers speaker's bureau.

Linda's been married more than thirty years to Paul and has two young-adult children, Laura and Jimmy.

God wants us to pray his will.

I read this book one chapter at a time because I wanted to soak in what Linda had written.

I came across this book while browsing the Internet the other day and immediately wanted to buy it because it looked so good, but I couldn't justify spending the money. Things are that tight right now. So I prayed, and God answered my prayer with an unexpected Amazon gift card in the amount of $10...just enough to buy the digital copy of this book without spending any of "my" money. That was a miracle in itself!

It only took me about two to three days to read this book. It's easy to understand and is so practical. I love all the prayers and look forward to praying many of them daily now as I wait for God to show me miracle after miracle...blessing after blessing.

Be warned, though: If you start praying the prayers in this book, you will get closer to God, and you will be blessed, but you will also be ATTACKED by the enemy because he doesn't want you get to closer to God. He wants to keep you as far away from God as possible. Don't let him. Buy this book, and open up your heart and life to what God wants to do in, and through, you.

Format: Paperback
Linda Shepherd has tackled a tough topic and I was curious as to how she would unwrap it in a believable process. Immediately I felt the authenticity and passion of her heart for following God. Linda has her own stories of pain. She has seen God unleash miracles in her life in a way that perhaps were not what would not have chosen, but nonetheless, she sees them as God's best for her life and the life of her family. Linda has built credibility with me because she does not contrive to make a case for God, but she allows the truths of God's word to build the case for miracles. I see Linda as a woman of prayer, and has come to realize that prayer is the source of all power and the unleashing of miracles.

I read this book one chapter at a time because I wanted to soak in what Linda had written. I especially spent time on the beautiful prayers. I began to realize how those prayers are pivotal to seeing AND believing that miracles are available to us and they are all around us.

I highly recommend having this book at your bedside to read one chapter a night. It will build your faith and fuel a passion for knowing God's power in your life at a deeper level. Buy this book for yourself and buy 10 others to give to those people in your sphere of influence that need a miracle.

Format: Paperback
"When You Need a Miracle" is predominantly a book about prayer. Linda Evans Shepherd takes you step by step in learning how to pray and also what hinders prayers from being answered.

She shares from a deep, personal place reflecting on some of her own life experiences. She discusses two incidents when she especially needed a miracle. One had to do with her brother and the other had to do with her daughter.

The chapter which spoke the most to me was Chapter Five, entitled The Forgiveness Factor. This chapter delves into the importance of forgiveness.

My favorite chapter was Chapter 7 entitled, Fighting the Enemy. I learned some very powerful prayers in this chapter which I will continue to implement in my own life.

Overall, there is much to glean and learn from "When You Need a Miracle". I recommend this book to anyone struggling in their life and desire a miracle through answered prayer.

In conclusion, I want to thank Revell for sending me a complimentary copy of this book to read and review.

I believe all the miracles in the Bible happened. I also believe that miracles still happen today. Just not to me.

This book has changed that. I now believe that miracles can be part of my life.

I was a little late receiving this book, so have not completely finished reading it. As I continue to read through this book, I've become a believer.

I know God can and will work miracles in my life.

How exciting is that!

"God makes the impossible possible every day."--from the foreword by Don Piper, bestselling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven

God still is in the business of miracles.

God is big enough to rescue us from heartache and circumstances beyond our control. He doesn't always do so, but for a variety of reasons. Maybe we didn't ask, believing. Maybe receiving it would bring more harm than good. Or maybe, the answer is wait.

But when we want to ask God for the impossible, Linda Evans Shepherd shows us how to reach out to God and ask, believing. She shows how God's answers are not always delivered in neatly wrapped packages, sometimes they are not at all what we expect! But she also shows us how they will transform our lives.

Linda Evans Shepherd uses solid biblical teaching and dramatic real-life stories, starting with the basics of making sure you are a child of God.

The book includes prayers to pray and scripture to quote out loud, and is great for helping those who don't know how to begin get started - or as a guide-line for your personalized prayer.

WHEN YOU NEED A MIRACLE is not a book to read if you are looking for God to be a magician and magically hand you whatever you ask for. It is sound biblically and will help even a sometimes or hesitant pray-er become someone who can boldly approach the throne of God. And believing, whatever His answer is. Highly recommended.
