Anne is a natural, gifted teacher of truth. She also has a lifetime of experience from which she humbly yet boldly proclaims God’s Word and wisdom. Now she does it once again in The Daniel Prayer. And once again she encourages us that we can move mountains too! (Kathie Lee Gifford)
Readers who yearn for the restoration of America’s cultural values will be tremendously inspired by Anne Graham Lotz’s brilliant and moving insights. As one who has a deep desire to enhance the passion of her prayers, I find The Daniel Prayer to be an extremely powerful and motivational book that you cannot put down. (Senator Elizabeth Dole)
When Anne Graham Lotz speaks, I listen. When she speaks on prayer, I lean in! In this great new book, a preeminent modern-day pray-er explores the prayer of one of the Bible’s greatest intercessors. It is a marvelous combination that promises to challenge, inspire, and convict its readers. I enthusiastically recommend it. (Richard Blackaby, coauthor of Experiencing God: Revised Edition)
As more Americans are turning away from the Lord, my friend Anne Graham Lotz has written a timely book about the power of prayer. In The Daniel Prayer, Anne argues we can renew, restore, and revive our nation---if---we agree to start praying like Daniel. I wholeheartedly agree! In The Daniel Prayer we come to understand we too can live and breathe the amazing power of prayer. (Gretchen Carlson, bestselling author and award-winning host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson on the Fox News Channel)
I love this woman---her passion, courage, and listening ear. About fifty pages into The Daniel Prayer, Anne writes, “You and I will never know how to pray in such a way that Heaven is moved and our nation is changed until we start reading our Bibles.” With that, Anne takes us into His Word and explains from Scripture, personal experience, and the lives of others the whole process of preparing for, pleading for, and prevailing in prayer. Then understanding our frailty when it comes to prayer (don’t we all feel it!), Anne gives us practical help and direction for praying The Daniel Prayer. In Daniel 9:23, God told Daniel he was “highly esteemed---precious” and that is what my friend Anne is to me. And that is what we can be to God if we will but listen, obey, and pray. (Kay Arthur, cofounder of Precept Ministries International and author of Lord, Teach Me to Pray in 28 Days)
Anne Graham Lotz has obviously spent a lot of time in prayer because in her latest book, The Daniel Prayer, she speaks with an authority that is not her own, that is bold and compelling and beautiful. This book may change your life because it will actually make you want to pray. Imagine that. It’s true. (Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host)
America is in trouble because we have turned our back on God. Judgment is coming, and no earthly institution can save us. The only thing that will stay the hand of God from sending the destruction that we have brought on ourselves through our disobedience is prayer. With this book, Anne reminds us how a teenager-turned-prime-minister changed the fate of a nation through deeply intense and powerfully intentional prayer. The Daniel Prayer is an essential and timely read for a world on the eve of destruction. May we too, like Daniel, cry out, “O Lord, listen! O Lord, forgive! O Lord, hear and act!” (Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated radio host)
If you have a deep longing to see God move in our generation in an unprecedented way, then read The Daniel Prayer. It will break up the fallow ground in your heart, creating a yearning for God that only God Himself can fulfill. Thank you, Anne Graham Lotz, for this incredible book that has the capacity to lead us into a God-shaking moment in this world. (Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President, Southern Baptist Convention and Senior Pastor, Cross Church)
Read this book and you will discover that prayer is not simply a part of Anne’s life; it is her life. She explains why the prayer of Daniel should be our model for praying and, on that basis, allows us into her own heart, revealing her disappointments, her victories, and above all, her burden for our nation. As you read this book, let Anne’s burden become yours! (Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer, Pastor Emeritus, the Moody Church, Chicago)
As a Jewish believer in Yeshua, the Messiah, as a son of the tribe of Judah and a direct descendant of the same Israelites who lived during the days of the prophet Daniel, I strongly recommend The Daniel Prayer. Anne Graham Lotz encourages believers to stand firm and never give up on God. It is within our spirits to pray and believe that the God of Daniel is the same today, according to His Word. Read this book and become a Daniel-like-minded believer! (Major Amir Tsarfati, Israeli Defense Force; founder, Behold Israel Ministry)
This book changed me. I will keep it open and go back to it over and over. It has transformed my prayer life. I have thrown my schedule out the window to fit on-my-face prayer time as the centerpiece of my every day. And this is the message for America! This is the only thing that could give us another chance. It’s not too late. May King Jesus raise up at least one million warriors praying The Daniel Prayer. (Tom Doyle, Vice President of e3 Partners and author of Killing Christians―Living the Faith Where It Is Not Safe to Believe)
If I enumerated a list of lessons I’ve learned as a student and spiritual daughter of Anne Graham Lotz, it would not only be long but it would be topped with the importance of intentional, passionate prayer. The incredible book you are holding in your hands is a message near and dear to Ms. Anne’s heart---one she has lived and taught by example. This work will call you out of the doldrums of lackluster faith and beckon you to renewed passion for an age-old spiritual discipline that still has wonder-working power. Read it, yes, but don’t stop there. Get on your knees and pray---intentionally, strategically, and fervently. (Priscilla Shirer, author of Fervent: A Woman’s Guide to Serious, Specific and Strategic Prayer)
Praying confirms we know we cannot succeed without God---and its absence confirms the opposite. We’re quick to denounce cultural depravity that would have been inconceivable a generation ago, yet how often have we failed to cry out to the One who can transform it? In The Daniel Prayer, Anne Graham Lotz has hit the bull’s-eye: To become part of God's solution, we must learn to pray as Daniel prayed. He was the interceder for a dark culture in his day---will you be one in ours? (Dr. James MacDonald, Senior Pastor, Harvest Bible Chapel; and author of Act Like Men and Vertical Church; JamesMacDonald.org)

I have a sister-in-law just this week diagnosed with breast cancer, I will be sending her this book in hopes that it will help her through this new challenge she now faces.
In The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, Lotz challenges us to follow the example of Daniel. As a captive exile in a foreign land, Daniel remained faith to his God, refused to bow to the foreign gods, and gave an example of prayer, found in Daniel 9, that we can follow today.
Daniel's prayer is a prayer of repentance and restoration, calling for God to restore Israel. Lotz believes "God's patience may be running out" for the United States, because of the nation's tolerance of abortion, embrace of gay marriage, and "our abandonment of the nation of Israel." In Daniel's case, God's people were taken into exile. I don't know what God has in store for us, but Lotz is right. We do need to repent, individually and collectively, of our sin, and plead with God for restoration, for the glory of God.
The Daniel Prayer is about prayer for national restoration, but much more than that, it's about prayer in general. She discusses Bible reading and worship as foundations for prayer, practical issues like determining the proper time, place, and preparation for prayer, and keeping a central focus of prayer "that God's name be cleared. Exalted. Glorified." And we should never forget that prayer is warfare. When we pray, "we are entering into the realm of spiritual warfare with the enemy."
It comes as no surprise that Lotz, who had one of the great evangelists as her model, would be a great communicator. She has honed her gift and developed her own style. She's a sought-after speaker, and The Daniel Prayer is an example of why. However, as powerful as parts of her message were, I sometimes felt that, like many speakers, she drew points out a bit too far, squeezing 15 minutes of content in a 45 minute sermon, so to speak. It also lost focus overall, as the book morphed from a book on the Daniel Prayer to a general book on prayer.
But that may just be me. The larger point is that she leaves the reader with much to chew on. Her challenge to a more consistent, focused life of prayer is compelling. The model prayers in the final section are at once intimidating (I can't pray that articulately! Or that long!) and encouraging (Here's a prayer I can learn to pray from.). Now, to get American Christians praying Daniel Prayers. . . . May God's name be glorified as he restores his people to his place of blessing.
