Book Review: The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz

From cover:

Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives. Anne Graham Lotz has found that while prayer does work, sometimes the “pray-ers” don’t. So she has turned to the prophet Daniel for help.
The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon…
Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works.
This book will help readers pray effectively for their nation, for their families, and for themselves. She will answer such questions as:
  • Does God only hear the prayers of good people?
  • How do I know the God to whom I pray will listen?
  • How do I know God cares about my prayer?
  • How do I know God will answer my prayer?
  • Why should I pray?
  • Does it matter where I am when I pray?
  • Are words in prayer all that matter, or does my attitude affect prayer?
  • What difference does my prayer make?
The book also includes some of her original prayers that demonstrate the principles taught in The Daniel Prayer.

My Review:

The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz is full of prayers that would change lives personally, in communities, across the nations and the world. The Daniel Prayer is based on Daniel 9. Anne shows the reader to prepare for prayer, how to plead in prayer, and about how God answers prayer. the last section of the book is helpful for learning prayer patterns about prayers that are centered, compelled, confident, contrite, clear and for warfare.  The Daniel Prayer by Anne Graham Lotz shows the passion that is poured out in Daniel 9 and how we can have that passion today for our world today. The note section in the back stood out to me with a beautiful walk though of all the scriptures used and other notes about the book chapter by chapter. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting deeper and more effective prayer either in group or personal study.
