4.0 out of 5 stars Great book on Prayer, January 6, 2012
This review is from: Handle with Prayer: Unwrap the Source of God's Strength for Living (Hardcover)
This is a very good book on prayer. This book reads as if Dr. Stanley is not preaching at the reader on prayer, but personally took the time to write this book. There is so much information in this book and far too much to articulate in a review so I will just highlight a few good quotes. On page 28, Dr. Stanley says that it is on our knees that the greatest good is done, and on our knees that we will face our greatest assaults. In chapter 3, the focus is in prayer in fasting. I admit that I have not done much fasting in my life and my hope is that this book will help aide in this area. On page 46, Dr. Stanley challenges the reader to spend a day alone with God fasting and praying. I have personally spent a few hours alone with God away from cell phones, the Internet, and other distractions and really enjoyed myself. The final chapter speaks of spiritual warfare in prayer. Humanism is addressed on page 139 and what a problematic issue this philosophy is in our postmodern day. So much self-help material, and books are out there that are humanistic based. Charles Stanley challenges the reader to get to the Bible and the Lord in his/her prayers. The Lord is the sufficiency and He is more than enough to meet the needs of the Christian. Other contents of the chapter address sin strongholds and how to overcome them and how strong they can be so often in the life of the Christian believer. Well done book, highly recommend!
