The Power of Prayer!

I was excited to receive a copy of Dirty Glory: Go Where Your Best Prayers Take You, by Pete Greig.  This book is a sequel to his earlier excellent book, Red Moon Rising.  He wrote this to help readers, that is, Christians become more passionate about prayer and what can occur when we come together in prayer.

Greig explains he had 4 main purposes in writing this sequel ~
  1. Celebrate the INcarnation, the "Word made flesh."
  2. The Presence Paradigm.  We experience the power and presence of God, but also community.
  3. What it means to be an authentic "House of Prayer."
  4. What does it mean to have a life of prayer?
Greig includes a study guide at the end of the book with study questions and Scripture verses to review.  His writing style is conducive to draw the reader into the stories about miracle after miracle which has occurred in his life and within his ministry.  He is the author / founder of the 24 / 7 Prayer movement.

His hope was for the reader to see prayer as an integral part of their daily life.  Prayer is not just something to do because we are supposed to, but it is an event which draws us closer to God and to one another.

If you are seeking a book which is inspiring, filled with 14 different stories, then this is an excellent book to read.

I received this book from Tyndale House Publishers, Nav Press, in exchange for an open and honest review.
