As Christians, we often struggle to find the words to speak in the presence of God. Praying to God may feel foreign or like a ritual, and adding to that frustration, we worry that God isn´t listening. Even if he hears, will he reply? This book will show you that God not only listens but also answers. He is waiting to provide an outpouring of blessings, if only you will ask him. God wants you to be a prayer warrior and will help you. Author Dan Lancaster was struck by the power of the prayers answered during his time as an international missionary in Southeast Asia. These answered prayers brought glory to God and helped advance his Kingdom on Earth. Those are the types of prayers we need in the world, and that is the direction this book will guide you. Prayer was never intended to be complicated. The truth is that Jesus showed his disciples how to pray and he wants to show you how to pray too. The author brings 40 years of his personal experience to this book, but most importantly, he looks to the word to unearth what Jesus prayed about and how. With beautiful simplicity, Dr. Lancaster offers tangible methods to reshape your prayer life beginning today. By opening your heart to these actionable techniques, you will begin to experience the true power of prayer in your relationship with God, in your community, and in ways you could never have imagined.

What makes a community extraordinary? When people live in community moved by the gospel and marked by the Spirit, great things happen. They commit to one another. They grieve together, sing together, eat, pray, and play together. They love, serve, honor, encourage, and provide for each other gladly. And they live on mission together. Hearts are healed, walls come down, and outsiders come in. No competition. No pretense. No vain conceit. Just full hearts breaking bread and giving freely. It is nothing short of amazing. Most of us live in a shadow of what God intended for us. Life in Community calls us into the light. Reclaiming scripture´s stunning vision of gospel-centered community, it inspires us to live in love unbounded. Listen to it, live it, and join the movement. Help unleash the power of extraordinary community. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hove/002134/bk_hove_002134_sample.mp3.

The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is the story of an unusual woman, Agnes Sparrow. No longer able or willing to leave her home, where she is cared for by her long-suffering sister Griselda, Agnes has committed her life to the one thing she can do - besides eat. Agnes Sparrow prays, and when Agnes prays, things happen, including major miracles of the cancer- and ulcer-healing variety, along with various minor miracles, not the least of which are the recovery of lost objects and a prize-winning pumpkin. The rural residents of Bright´s Pond are so enamored with Agnes they plan to have a sign erected on the interstate that reads, ´´Welcome to Bright´s Pond, Home of Agnes Sparrow´´. This is something Agnes doesn´t want and sends Griselda to fight city hall. Griselda´s petitions are shot down and the sign plans press forward until a stranger comes to town looking for his miracle from Agnes. The truth of Agnes´s odd motivation comes out when the town reels after the murder of a beloved community member. How could Agnes allow such evil in their midst? Didn´t she know? Well, the prayers of Agnes Sparrow have more to do with Agnes than God. Agnes has been praying to atone for a sin committed when she was a child. After some tense days, the townsfolk, Griselda, and Agnes decide they all need to find their way back to the true source of the miracles - God. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kate Udall.

This captivating account of the spiritually unexpected unfolding on a Welsh hillside will challenge and encourage you. In keeping with God´s pattern of using marginal people from obscure places - fishermen, tax collectors, children, women and Galileans - this story sees God intrude into the mundane rhythms of life in a Christian retreat centre, run by a couple who would have been forgiven for opting for a quiet life when they arrive in this quiet Welsh hamlet. God´s intrusion has not only sparked the growth of a House of Prayer but also touched many lives with healing, repentance and encouragement. The tangible presence of God has released visions of Jesus, angelic messengers and a steady stream of non-believers seeking to understand the encounter with God that they experience as they venture near this converted farmhouse. A fresh perspective on evangelism emerges from this inspiring insight into how God might work in your community. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Cowley.

In raw, poignant alternating first-person narratives, interspersed with e-mails, gay chat-room exchanges, and other fragments of a youth laid bare in the age of social media, The Lost Prayers of Ricky Graves unravels the mystery of a life in all its glory: despair and regret, humor and wonder, courage and connection. A heartbroken and humiliated Ricky Graves took the life of a classmate and himself. Five months later, the sleepy community is still in shock and mourning. Ricky´s sister, Alyssa, returns to confront her shattered, withdrawn mother and her guilt over the brother she left adrift. Mark McVitry, the lone survivor of the deadly outburst sparked by his own cruelty, is tormented by visions of Ricky´s vengeful spirit. Ricky´s surrogate older brother, Corky Meeks, grapples with doubts about the fragile boy he tried to protect but may have doomed instead. And Jeremy Little, who inadvertently became Ricky´s long-distance Internet crush despite never having met, seeks to atone for failing to hear his friend´s cries for help. For those closest to the tormented killer, shock and grief have given way to soul searching, as they´re forced to confront their broken dreams, buried desires, and missed opportunities. And in their shared search for meaning and redemption, Ricky´s loved ones find a common purpose: learning to trust their feelings, fighting for real intimacy in a world grown selfish and insincere, and fearlessly embracing all that matters most...before it´s gone from their lives. 1.
