It’s something many Christians can relate to: the desire to pray but the failure to execute. A Journey to Victorious Praying will tell readers why this is—and how to move past it.
Addressing common misconceptions about prayer, then offering biblical truths and practices instead, Bill Thrasher teaches readers how to:Honestly share their desires with GodTurn temptations into victorious prayersExperience the Spirit’s motivation in prayerGet help when they don’t know how to prayImplement fasting into their prayer lifeMove from anxiety to peace
Filled with practical insight and pastoral warmth, this book will give readers renewed enthusiasm for embarking on the essential journey of prayer. And its brief chapters, organized around various themes, make it perfect for quick reference, as does the appendix with tips for stimulating prayer.
What does that even mean? It means that prayer is a central part of your daily experience. It’s a defining characteristic. It means that you are a person who walks with God, led by the Spirit, abiding in Christ. A person of prayer is following in Christ’s steps, going to the Father night and day, in all circumstances and conditions of the heart.
The goal of this booklet, which is a companion study guide to A Journey to Victorious Praying: Finding Discipline and Delight in Your Prayer Life by Bill Thrasher, is to assist in the journey toward becoming a person who prays.
It is set up in an eight-week format (five days per week). However, you can use it however you deem fit. Sprint through it in just a few weeks or mosey along for a few months--however you choose to work through these disciplines, ask God to guide your journey.
This booklet can work well for individual, partner, or group study. No matter whom you choose to share this journey with, make sure to pray for each other often as you seek God’s best for your prayer lives.
This book has been conceived and designed over 30 years as Dr. Bill Thrasher has spoken to thousands of people, helping them realize the spiritual battle that surrounds their celebration of the holidays. Littered with practical thoughts, ideas, experiences, and stories, Putting God Back in the Holidays will help you and your family celebrate holidays and birthdays with biblical truth in mind.Instead of the joy-filled celebrations that we build up in our minds, the holidays (pick one, any one) can often become stress-filled, money-draining, joy-less days of the year that we just "want to get through." And it is by our own volition that we have refused too many times to allow our holiday celebrations to be the spiritual experience they are meant to be.
