This is repost of my reply to Sarah Bowling’s blog (BTW- she’s so awesome!) She sent out a clarion call requesting recommendations from her followers and readers to contribute helpful resources they had found or utilized on one of my favorite subjects…… Prayer.
Oh Sarah — prayer is currently the “school” subject the Holy Spirit enrolled me in almost a year ago. Since then I have gathered many resources and books.
First of all I would like to mention “Prayers: The Little Red Prayer Book” which can be downloaded for free by going to www.christianword.org
or if you prefer an actual book they will send you a free copy by mail by writing to:
Christian Word Ministries, 428 Southland Drive, Lexington, Kentucky 40503.
These prayers are completely scripture based, and teaches “pray-ers” how to pray God’s Word and His Will for our lives.
Here is a list of some classic prayer books that I consider to be great resources:
1. My House Shall Be A House Of Prayer: Lessons from the School of Prayer – Lance Lambert
(available from Christian Testimony Ministry, 4424 Huguenot Road, Richmond, VA 23235) www.christiantestimonyministry.com
2. Rees Howells: INTERCESSOR: The Story of A Life Lived For God
by: Norman Grubb (available on Amazon.com)
3. The Prayer Shield: How To Intercede For Pastors, Christian Leaders, and others on the Spiritual Frontlines – by: C. Peter Wagner (available on Amazon.com)
4. The Voice and Leading of God – by: Grace Ryerson Roos
5. Prayer Letters – by: Grace Ryerson Roos
6. The Blood – by: Grace Ryerson Roos
(All can be purchased on www.billyebrim.org)
**There are also many classic books from many pioneers of prayer such as, Andrew Murray, that are available on www.Amazon.com).
Lastly, here are three posts on my blog which central theme is prayer:
Hope this helps …
