Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nationsby Anne Graham Lotz
What is the secret to the revival of the church? The spiritual restoration of America? How can you renew your own relationship with God? It's prayer. But not your everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer. It is prayer that storms the gates of Heaven until things change. It is passionate, heartfelt, I-won't-let-You-go-until-You-bless-me pleading until you get an answer. It's The Daniel Prayer.

The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz has helped me to better my prayers by teaching me how to pray with humility, conviction, and confession. This is not your everyday prayer, but one that you will find yourself praying when you truly need a miracle. It is based off of Daniel 9 in the Bible where Daniel was uprooted from his home and kept in exile and desperately wanted to go back home. Anne shares moments of her life where she had prayed the Daniel Prayer when she needed it most and was either blessed or given the answers she was seeking. Throughout the book she teaches you how to pray under pressure, how to prepare for prayer and also learning to pray, praying with passion, contrite, and humility. I did struggle with reading this and I just couldn't keep an interest with all her added stories but other than that I did enjoy the scripture lessons and how to better my prayers. At the end of the book there are scripture references to help you learn to prepare for prayer depending on the needs you have and I found them very helpful. There is also a place for your own notes to be able to write your own prayers or scripture that you find helpful to add into your prayers.

Desiring to learn what the Bible teaches us about prayer, I selected Anne Graham Lotz’ newest book The Daniel Prayer. Unfortunately, after reading this book, I cannot recommend it because it’s off base theologically. One of the first things Anne should have noted was the importance of not taking Scripture out of context. But it wasn’t until page 181 that she notes the “danger of taking God’s Word out of context and manipulating it so that it seems to speak personally and specifically.” But at this point in the book, she has already taken Scripture out of context and read into it and misapplied it many times, rather than reading what it says in context. One of the phrases Anne uses throughout this is “prayer which moves Heaven.” She uses it a lot. It seemed like she was substituting Heaven for God the Father. Heaven isn’t moved, but God may be moved by our prayers. Many times in this book Anne does eisegesis; she reads into the Scripture based on her own thoughts and ideas as opposed to exegesis interpreting the Scripture based on what it says in context. Page 49 – “God reassured me from 1 John 2:27 that I had received an anointing from Him, so I was not to worry.” Page 58 – Anne tells about her daughter Rachel-Ruth calling her about the 276 Nigerian girls who had been kidnapped by Boko Haram. She found it significant that in Acts 27:37, the number of people on board Paul’s ship was 276. “And we will pray until all 276 are safely home, either with their parents in Nigeria, or with their Heavenly Father.” Feeling prompted to pray by a Scripture verse is fine, but taking that verse out of context is not good. Page 88 – Anne talks about the time she was speaking to the “United Nations General Assembly and presented the Gospel as the only way to have genuine, permanent world peace.” The Gospel message is not a way to achieve world peace. The Gospel message is for individuals, calling for sinners to repent of their sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and His atoning death on the cross which paid the penalty in full for their sins so that they could be forgiven. The Gospel message is for sinners to have peace with God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son. There were a couple (page 155 and 160) of times that Anne used Scripture verses and called them prayer, when in fact they were people talking to a Person who was there with them (the Lord Jesus Christ or an Old Testament appearance of the Lord). On page 253, Anne is encouraging readers to pray The Daniel Payer. “Could it be that God wants to reassure you…and this book is God’s message to you. God has heard your prayer. Heaven has been move and nations are being changed, one person at a time.” Wow…that is a pretty bold for Anne to speak for God. There are other examples I could list, but I think you get the picture. Don’t take Scripture of out context. Don’t take a promise that God made to an individual or nation and try to make it your own. You may be encouraged or strengthened in your faith and trust in God based on Scripture, but don’t twist it or take it out of context. Based on the above examples, and many more that I left out, I do not recommend The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz. I would like to thank BookLook and Zondervan Publishers for the opportunity to read The Daniel Prayer in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
The Daniel Prayer Prayer that Moves Heaven and Changes Nations By: Anne Graham Lotz Once again Anne writes a book that is powerful. I’ve read a lot of her Dad’s books and her books too. Billy Graham held people’s attention in years gone by. I heard Pastor Graham on TV he is a powerful Preacher, as is his daughter. Anne takes us on a journey of the Daniel Payers they are packed with powerful words that Daniel used. On page 239 A Prayer For The Battle a very powerful prayer to use, Anne in this book is getting us ready for a Spiritual battle a battle unlike any we’ve been through. My memory isn’t what it used to be so I prayer that when I need scripture or a prayer of the Bible that God will speak through me to battle the dark side. The dimension of prayers that Anne takes us through is greater than you ever could imagine. The original Daniel Prayer Daniel 9:1-23 (page 21). This book is beautifully written and the words are powerful. A book every payer warrior needs to read and study. I recommend this book highly for those that are looking to deepen their prayers. You won’t regret buying it. She is a powerful writer!! Powerful Praying!!! I received this book free from book look bloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just and honest review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-310-26290-9
