Hour That Changes the World: A Practical Plan for Personal Prayer
David Brainerd once wrote, "Oh! One hour with God infinitely exceeds all pleasures and delights of this lower world." Yet, if you have ever set out to pray for one hour, you may appreciate my angst. There is nothing more intimidating, or overwhelming than attempting to pray with one eye on the spiritual realm and the other on the clock! This book offers a practical plan for praying one hour through 12 prayer points (meaning each will last about 5 minutes - now that's doable!) While the authors stress that the prayer plan should be applied with spiritual liberty rather than regimented legality, simply having a realistic, achievable plan with easy to follow steps explained frees the pray-er to focus on God more freely. Concludes with an invitation to pray for our communities, neighborhoods and nation. 25th Anniversary edition. This is a My Father's World US History 1877-Present High School recommended resource. SC. 145 pgs. ~Deanne

In this special 25th anniversary edition of The Hour That Changes the World, Dick Eastman also extends an invitation for believers everywhere to help form continuous walls of prayer in their communities?saturating neighborhoods and nations with nonstop, focused intercession. Whether you join a wall of prayer or simply apply the twelve-points plan, this book will transform your prayer life. As Joni Eareckson Tada writes in the foreword, "Through these pages the Lord Jesus catapulted me into a whole new dimension of joy. . . .
