Tucked into Abraham’s biography is the story of Hagar, a young Egyptian slave with whom Abraham had a son named Ishmael. Hagar stood out because she was wounded—not physically, but in ways that were as emotionally and spiritually painful as any injury to a body would be. Some wounds were provoked by her own bad behavior, but others were inflicted by those who considered themselves God’s people.

Anne Graham Lotz too has been wounded by God’s people. Some wounds have been deeper than others, some have come out of nowhere, and still others have been provoked by her own behavior, but all of the wounds have been deeply painful. They seemed to hurt even more when the wounders wrapped their behavior in a semblance of religion or piety.

As Hagar’s story unfolds, you will discover that wounded people often become wounders themselves. While Anne identifies with the wounded, the unpleasant reality is that she also identifies with the wounders, because she has been one, too. She knows from experience that wounding is a cycle that needs to be broken. And by God’s grace, it can be.

Many have had similar experiences. And perhaps you are among those who have been so deeply hurt that you have confused God’s imperfect people with God. Maybe you have even run away from God as a result. Or perhaps you have been a wounder to the extent that you are living in a self-imposed exile, believing you are unworthy to be restored to a warm, loving relationship with God or with God’s people. Whatever your hurts may be, Wounded by God’s People helps you to begin a healing journey—one that enables you to reclaim the joy of God’s presence and all the blessings God has for you.

God loves the wounded. And the wounders.

Do you ever feel your prayers are anemic? Hollow? Then this six-session video Bible study (DVD sold separately) is for you! Bestselling author Anne Graham Lotz looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9. Unlike the everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer, this was a prayer birthed under heartache...grief...desperation. It was a plea for Heaven to move and change his nation.

For an entire generation, Daniel's people had been held in captivity and separated from their homeland–and thus separated from God. But when Daniel read a prophecy in which God said He would restore His people to Jerusalem after seventy years, he claimed that promise and cried out to the Lord to bring it to pass. Daniel's example of praying God's Word back to Him is what Anne calls "reversed thunder."

In this study, Anne explains how we, too, can reverse the thunder until Heaven is moved and our own worlds change. Following the pattern of Daniel's original prayer, she helps us develop a more meaningful and powerful prayer life. As we learn how to storm the gates of Heaven and refuse to let go, we will see real change in the lives of not only those we are praying for, but also our own. Our prayers will become more effective as our faith is deepened and our personal relationship with God is strengthened.

This guide includes weekly Bible study readings, video teaching notes, group discussion questions, group activities, and space for writing your own prayers. It is ideal for use in small groups and Sunday school classes and includes a simplified Bible study track for more limited meeting time (such as a workplace lunchtime setting).

Sessions include:

Many of us go though life knowing that God loves us and trying to serve him by going to church, teaching Sunday school, leading youth group, and serving as a deacon. We set aside time to read our Bibles and to pray, and we teach our children to do the same. But some mornings we wake up wondering if we’re missing something. We know God with our heads, but we want to know him with our hearts.We long to see Jesus, but we don’t know where to begin.Like many others, Anne Graham Lotz, the second daughter of Billy and Ruth Graham, has longed throughout her life to see the Lord Jesus, and to know him on an intimate personal level. Born and raised into a prominent Christian family, Anne knows that God doesn’t have any grandchildren and that no one can ride into the kingdom of God on their daddy or mommy’s coattails. So she has searched God’s Word daily for a fresh touch of Jesus.I Saw the Lord invites you to undertake a journey with Anne, the journey to experience a fresh touch of Jesus by soaking in God’s Word. Using the words of Isaiah, Anne shows us what we’ve been missing and why we need Jesus. She teaches us how we can see Jesus, who Jesus really is, and how to know if we’ve seen him.Chronicling her own and others’ struggles to grow in faith, Anne shows the difference a fresh touch of Jesus has made in her life and the difference it will make in yours. If you’re looking for more than religion and for more than a one-time religious experience, join Anne in reviving your life and in finding a relationship that will last a lifetime.
