Becoming the Answer to Your Own Prayer
"Prayer is not so much about convincing God to do what we want God to do as it is about convincing ourselves to do what God wants us to do." —from the Introduction Activists Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove show how prayer and action must go together. Their exposition of key Bible passages provides concrete examples of how a life of prayer fuels social engagement and the work of justice. Phrases like "give us this day our daily bread" and "forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors" take on new meaning when applied to feeding the hungry or advocating for international debt relief. If you hope to see God change society, you must be an ordinary radical who prays—and then is ready to become the answer to your own prayers.

More than a decade ago, Jerry Sittser prayed for the protection of his family, yet three of his loved ones—his daughter, his wife, and his mother—died in an automobile accident. What went wrong? “Why wasn’t my prayer answered?” he asks. “It is no longer an abstract question to me. What should we do and how should we respond when our prayers—prayers that seem right and true and good—go unanswered?”In When God Doesn’t Answer Your Prayer, Sittser continues exploring the issues he addressed in A Grace Disguised. He asks, “Why doesn’t God answer our prayers? What, if anything, can we do about it?” Sittser is intensely committed to exploring the Christian faith, especially when it doesn’t seem to “work.” In this thoughtful and beautifully written book, he moves beyond easy answers and religious formulas to explore the goodness and greatness of a God who cannot be controlled but can be trusted. When God Doesn’t Answer Your Prayer takes an honest and probing look at the problem of unanswered prayer. In doing so, it draws us ever deeper into a relationship with the God who is the end of all our prayers, the object of our faith, the one who fulfills our deepest longings.

Unity minister Linda Martella-Whitsett provides a new framework for thinking about prayer that will revolutionize the lives of readers everywhere. The good news here is that you can pray without believing in God; that you can have a rich and fulfilling spiritual practice without adhering to a set of creeds or dogmas. Martella-Whitsett encourages seekers to look within rather than outside themselves for a God in the sky, for the spark of the divine that is at the core of their being. How to Pray Without Talking to God shows how to develop a true spiritual practice by: re-forming the words of traditional prayers; cultivating a habit of daily prayer and meditation; learning how to pray with others. How To Pray Without Talking To God is filled with the author’s stories of her own evolving understanding of God. Each chapter includes a section called “Talk to Yourself” that poses questions for readers to write about or share in a study circle.

"God is already supplying whatever good thing we need." We may think that prayer is asking God for favors, yet Jesus Christ taught that it is not necessary to beg for what we need and desire. He showed us the secret of positive prayer--to thankfully, confidently, and joyfully claim our good as heirs of God. Positive prayer aligns our minds with the Mind of God and opens us to the expression of God's abundant good for the betterment of ourselves and all of creation. In the Handbook of Positive Prayer, Hypatia Hasbrouck explores the many practical and uplifting ways that positive prayer can work in your life. She guides you through a powerful seven-step prayer model as well as shares the benefits of visualization, prayer journaling, use of affirmations and denials, and other special prayer treatments and techniques.

The eldest son of Unity cofounders charles and Myrtle Fillmore was raised in an environment of affirmative prayer, so it was natural that he would write about prayer as a means to achieve health, wealth, and happiness. The thirteen sections of this book are based on Truth affirmations Lowell Fillmore compiled from experience. He called these affirmations "gadgets," which he found valuable in meeting everyday problems involving health, prosperity, and human relationships. A fourteen th section contains Lowell Fillmore's reflections on the Lord's Prayer.

“If there were a Guinness Book of World Records entry for ‘amount of times having prayed the sinner’s prayer,’ I’m pretty sure I’d be a top contender,” says pastor and author J. D. Greear. He struggled for many years to gain an assurance of salvation and eventually learned he was not alone. “Lack of assurance” is epidemic among evangelical Christians. In Stop Asking Jesus Into Your Heart, J. D. shows that faulty ways of present- ing the gospel are a leading source of the confusion. Our presentations may not be heretical, but they are sometimes misleading. The idea of “asking Jesus into your heart” or “giving your life to Jesus” often gives false assurance to those who are not saved—and keeps those who genuinely are saved from fully embracing that reality. Greear unpacks the doctrine of assurance, showing that salvation is a posture we take to the promise of God in Christ, a posture that begins at a certain point and is maintained for the rest of our lives. He also answers the tough questions about assurance: What exactly is faith? What is repentance? Why are there so many warnings that seem to imply we can lose our salvation? Such issues are handled with respect to the theological rigors they require, but Greear never loses his pastoral sensitivity or a communication technique that makes this message teachable to a wide audience from teens to adults.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.

What is prayer, and how do I pray? Asking this question at any age allows us to define (or re-define) exactly what prayer is, exploring in depth the role it will have in our individual life experience. It also leads to more questions; does praying mean we must believe in God, or is it simply a conversation inside our own head? If we don't get what we prayed for, does that mean we didn't pray "correctly"? Where do our prayers go, anyway? The Heart of Prayer peers through the lens of the Unity Spiritual Movement's Affirmative, Heart-Centered Prayer for answers, encouraging exploration in readers of all ages. Rich images, colorful rhymes and simple techniques help to foster a close, enduring relationship with prayer, no matter which, if any, faith tradition you choose. Trish Yancey is an educator in both the areas of science and spirituality. Her unique perspective marries the two in wonderfully eye-opening ways. With this, her second book, she again charms readers, educating as she entertains ~ creating a volume readers and teachers will cherish for years to come. At The Heart of Prayer, you will surf waves of sensation; Relaxation ~ Connection ~ Affirmation ~ Celebration ... And then your energy shifts to Creation!

Can Prayer Truly Heal Body and Soul? In The Metaphysics of Spiritual Healing and the Power of Affirmative Prayer, Reverend Carter continues to focus on the God-Power that resides in each and every one of us. Acknowledging that traditional Christianity teaches that we are indeed separate from our Creator or Source, Reverend Carter emphasizes that we can be transformed by "the renewing of our minds" using the techniques of spiritual metaphysics and affirmative prayer. When we really come to believe that we are not separate from but indeed part of the energy and Intelligence many of us refer to as "God," we become happier, more loving, and fulfilled human beings. In this way, the world we have awaited for will eventually become the world attained.

Could our deepest hurts reveal the key to a powerful form of prayer that was lost 17 centuries ago? What can we learn today from the great secret of our most cherished traditions? "There are beautiful and wild forces within us." With these words, the mystic St. Francis described what ancient traditions believed was the most powerful force in the universe – the power of prayer. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden has searched for evidence of a forgotten form of prayer that was lost to the West following the biblical edits of the early Christian Church. In the 1990s, he found and documented this form of prayer still being used in the remote monasteries of central Tibet. He also found it practiced in sacred rites throughout the high deserts of the American Southwest. In this book, Braden describes this ancient form of prayer that has no words or outward expressions. Then, for the first time in print, he leads us on a journey exploring what our most intimate experiences tell us about our deepest beliefs. Through case histories and personal accounts, Braden explores the wisdom of these timeless secrets, and the power that awaits each of us . . . just beyond our deepest hurt!
