Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Everything is bigger in Texas—even prayer. Davis pastors the Austin Christian Fellowship church, whose attendance averages 1,100 strong and where he challenges his congregation to pray big: praying in specifics rather than generalities and pleading with such focus as to pinpoint the exact need. Davis dissects the Lord's Prayer, telling readers that today's believers should follow the same precise pattern for every prayer offered. Analyzing Jesus' prayer, Christians can see that Christ petitioned for certain exact targets: God's glory, God's agenda, God's provision, relational health and God's protection. Davis encourages fellow intercessors to begin developing a prayer discipline that beseeches God's favor for the mundane as well as the miraculous, for the rejuvenation of the spiritually dead and for unifying agreement with spouses, children and even oneself. A particularly insightful section deals with effectively interceding for nonbelievers through persistent and continuous prayer, asking Jesus to have compassion on those individuals, meet them where they are, call them by name and remove any spiritual stumbling blocks from their lives. Davis's work not only urges Christians to pray, but teaches them how to do so with theological accuracy. (July)

From the Inside Flap

Have you ever listened to how we pray? It's like Christians have developed their own prayer language, and I don't mean the ecstatic kind. Lord, please bless Bill. What exactly do we mean by that? Do we want God to make Bill more holy or more disciplined? Are we hoping that his business will prosper or that he'll be a better husband? And why do we ask for blessing when Ephesians 1:3 says we are already blessed with every spiritual blessing God can give? God, please be with Joan. God's already with Joan. His Spirit lives in her, and he promised to never leave or forsake her. What do we really want God to do for Joan? Father, we pray that you give Jack a special anointing. As if there is such a thing as an ordinary anointing. Special anointing is redundant. And God, we ask that you give Sue an extra helping of your grace. What is that? Does God dole out grace in measured proportions? It makes God sound as if he has a big serving spoon--that he can either be generous or stingy with the helpings of grace he dispenses. God wants us to be strategic and focused about what we're asking him to do. We need to pray for things--very specific things, gritty things, personal things, important things, kingdom things--with the pinpoint precision that Jesus modeled.
