The Daniel Prayer Book Summary : Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives.

The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon. Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works. This book will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.
The Daniel Prayer Study Guide Book Summary : Do you ever feel your prayers are anemic? Hollow? Then this six-session video Bible study (DVD sold separately) is for you! Bestselling author Anne Graham Lotz looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9. Unlike the everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer, this was a prayer birthed under heartache...grief...desperation. It was a plea for Heaven to move and change his nation. For an entire generation, Daniel's people had been held in captivity and separated from their homeland–and thus separated from God. But when Daniel read a prophecy in which God said He would restore His people to Jerusalem after seventy years, he claimed that promise and cried out to the Lord to bring it to pass. Daniel's example of praying God's Word back to Him is what Anne calls "reversed thunder." In this study, Anne explains how we, too, can reverse the thunder until Heaven is moved and our own worlds change. Following the pattern of Daniel's original prayer, she helps us develop a more meaningful and powerful prayer life. As we learn how to storm the gates of Heaven and refuse to let go, we will see real change in the lives of not only those we are praying for, but also our own. Our prayers will become more effective as our faith is deepened and our personal relationship with God is strengthened. This guide includes weekly Bible study readings, video teaching notes, group discussion questions, group activities, and space for writing your own prayers. It is ideal for use in small groups and Sunday school classes and includes a simplified Bible study track for more limited meeting time (such as a workplace lunchtime setting). Sessions include: Preparing for Prayer Prompting in Prayer Pleading in Prayer Prevailing in Prayer The Battle in Prayer This study guide is designed for use with The Daniel Prayer Video Study (sold separately). A Facilitator's Guide is included on the DVD only, with Additional Resources.

Creating a Life with God Book Summary : As children our prayers consisted of "Now I lay me down to sleep..." or "God is good. God is great..." As we mature, we discover that our prayers are not scripted for us. So how do we learn to pray in a more grown-up way? Creating a Life with God offers us the opportunity to learn and adopt 12 prayer practices. Some of these prayer practices include the general practice of peace and quiet, Lectio Divina, the Jesus prayer, creativity, journaling, and more. The first chapter uses the Desert Mothers and Fathers to focus on the general practices of solitude and silence. The second chapter describes the practice of Lectio Divina. The next five chapters describe prayer practices that focus on the use of the mind to come to know God. Chapters 8 and 9 seek to move us out of our minds and into our created bodies. The last three chapters take us beyond our individual selves to show us how the world and our lives can become part of our prayer life. Along with these prayer practices are historical figures to guide us. Some of these are Julian of Norwich, The Pilgrim (who described the Jesus Prayer), and Ignatius of Loyola. In addition to these helpful guides, Wolpert offers an appendix for step-by-step instructions for practicing each prayer practice either individually or with a group.
