Praying Dangerously: Daring Prayers for Meaningful Faith

Human beings are incurably religious, and we tend to pray to whatever "god" can save us from our immediate danger. The Bible shows us another way of prayer.

Overview

Human beings are incurably religious, and we tend to pray to whatever "god" can save us from our immediate danger. The Bible shows us another way of prayer. We pray to a living God who may save us from danger but who himself is dangerous. After all, we cannot fathom God. We cannot control God. We must learn the spirit of that very risky prayer that Jesus learned to pray: "Yet not my will, but yours be done."

Praying Dangerously is intended to change your life. It invites you to read what the Bible says about prayer. And not only to read, but to reflect. And not only to reflect, but to pray yourself. And when you pray, your life will be forever altered.

This book leads you through the prayers of both the Old and New Testaments, exploring the rich heritage of those people who turned to God in joy and sorrow, triumph and defeat, faithfulness and sin. These are not merely ancient prayers in an ancient culture to an ancient God; they are living prayers to a living God who still hears, speaks, and acts.

Meeting God in prayer to invite personal change holds high stakes and great possibility. Will you take the risk?
