From the inside jacket flap: From one of the beloved creators of Schoolhouse Rock and the popular GodWink series, New York Times bestselling author SQuire Rushnell teams up with his wife Louise DuArt for The 40 Day Prayer Challenge—a simple yet powerful idea that encourages partners to pray together for just five minutes a day for forty days.
SQuire and Louise have practiced daily prayer together for sixteen years. Now, they offer readers step-by-step advice on where, when, and what words to use in praying with another person: be it a spouse, loved one, family member, or a friend. In a straight-forward fashion, with astonishing examples of how Partnered Prayer can restore relationships and revitalize families, countless questions are answered including:
-How do we start praying together?
-Can we pray about anything?
-How do I get my mate to pray with me?
-Does romance get better when you pray together?
-Is there scientific evidence for prayer?
-What if my prayers aren’t answered?
In association with several prominent mega-churches and Baylor University’s Institute for the Studies of Religion, SQuire and Louise are initiating the first empirical research study ever done on the effects of prayer among two people over an extended period. The 40 Day Prayer Challenge also provides a no-cost online opportunity to participate in the ongoing study. When the fun and transformational challenge finishes at forty days, prayer partners will receive a scorecard on how well they did, and join others in experiencing the amazing, wonderful things that happen during Partnered Prayer.
This book is designed for partners to develop a daily habit of speaking together with God. If we are willing to commit to as little as five minutes a day speaking with God about issues of concern and praising Him for blessings we received since yesterday the joy in our lives will expand immeasurably. No doubt about it a lot of us when we pray we do it silently and we do it alone. We need to change our praying to out loud .His promise is in the Bible: “Whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. The authors tell us: Let’s look at the key words to opening your gift: first, to ask in prayer—through the power of the spoken word; second, to believe that God is who He says He is and can do what He says He can do; and third, to expect to receive “whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer.” There are eight chapters that focus our attention on How Partnered Prayer Works, How to Pray, The Benefits Of Prayer and Who should pray and what we should expect to happen in the Spirit Realm both pro and con. “The 40 Day Prayer Challenge” is not a time-consuming read. If we use what is being taught here correctly it will so helpful to properly channel our energies in the right direction. It is perfect to give as gifts to family and friends that they, also, will have their prayer lives expanded and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!
