This book, specially rewritten for the teen market, focuses on how to have an intimate relationship with God, a solid foundation in God's truth, and a commitment to obedience. This is the perfect book for any high school or college graduate who is trying to determine what God's will for their life is. In updated, relevant language this timeless classic will be brought to a new generation of readers.
rayer powerhouse Omartian has taught parents how to pray for kids, and spouses how to pray for each other. Now, she teaches readers how to pray for themselves. Like her earlier books, this short guide is peppered with humbling and revealing autobiographical tidbits in the arresting opening pages, Omartian admits that she used to wake up every morning filled with dread and depression, because she was "dying on a daily basis." Omartian's own life has been transformed by prayer, and she is eager to share her successes with others. She sketches out a 20-day prayer regimen that, she promises, will dramatically change readers' lives. The program begins with evangelical basics (praying to know God and accept Jesus as Savior) and moves on to praying for the release of sin and for trust in the power of prayer itself. The final steps help readers pray for those ingredients that will be essential in an ongoing Christian walk with God, such as finding a community of believers and remaining separate from the world. Each chapter concludes with an actual prayer and a list of relevant Bible verses. Omartian radiates joy for prayer and for God, and readers of this accessible, clear guide are sure to catch that joy. (Oct.) Forecast: Omartian's The Power of a Praying Wife and The Power of a Praying Parent have sold just over two million copies combined. In a year when readers seem to have an insatiable appetite for books on transformative personal prayer (can anyone say "Jabez"?), this is poised to do very well.
