Are You Desperate To Learn How To pray?
- Do you have problems at work?
- Do you have problems with your relationships?
- Do you have financial problems?
- Do you have health problems?
- Do you have problems with your children or spouse?
In your heart you know there is a problem, yet you don’t know what to do about it. You spend many sleepless nights, worrying. You might try to pray, but you feel like your prayers are hitting the ceiling. You don’t know why God doesn’t seem to be helping you more?
You are not alone. There are many people just like you – even many christians – who are desperate for the answers they need. But don’t give up!
If you have lost your hope, read on. Here is your hope!
A few weeks ago, my four adult children, their spouses, and 10 of my grandchildren gave me a spectacular birthday party. Our evening was filled with laughter as we dined in a fine Atlanta restaurant. I looked around the long table and thanked God for my exceptional family. Everyone of them is living a happy, productive, and sober life. We have truly been blessed.
However, this hasn’t always been our story. Several years ago, my life seemed to be in chaos. Having been raised in a Christian home, with wonderful parents, my life took a turn which was most unexpected. Divorce, financial problems, and depression all seemed to be pouring in on me when I suddenly had a turnaround. An encounter with Jesus changed everything. And step by step I learned how to pray and how to appropriate the best that God has for me.
Our God is a wonderful God, and He has great things in store for all of those who allow him to truly be their God.
That’s where my book, Forever Upward: A Mother’s Journey Through Prayer, comes in.When you are dealing with external factors like finances or other people, you cannot “make things happen” your way.
But what you cannot do, God can!
- You cannot give anyone a dream, but God can!
- You cannot orchestrate special encounters with “just the right person,” but God can!
- You cannot bring people in contact with TV shows, movies, videos, or magazines which speak to their hearts, but God can!
God knows you and your loved ones better than you do, and He can get the job done.
What you can do is pray for yourself, and pray for them, when they don’t know how to pray for themselves. Your prayers will get God on the scene.
So, what’s so special about Forever Upward?
As you read, you will meet Harvey and June Lancet, who didn’t meet God until they were in their mid-40′s and their sons were already hooked on drugs. In fact, the teenagers were robbing stores to finance their habits. To the outside world, the sons seemed totally beyond any hope. But June and Harvey grabbed hold of their new-found understanding of God, and they were determined to stick with their prayers until they saw a change. It took some time, but they finally saw what they had been praying for – and more!
You will meet Amanda, whose daughter had anorexia. Olivia was at the very point of a life-threatening condition when Amanda’s prayers came through. As God had shown her how to pray, her daughter’s life was spared. Olivia suddenly “woke up,” and realized that she needed the help.
You will also meet many others who learned to pray as their sons and daughters faced illness, alcoholism, drug addiction, and divorce. In each case, you will see how these people learned to give the situation to God and to pray as He led them. In every case there was powerful transformation!
