I am so excited to share with you that this book is going to be released before Christmas. It is, of course, a book that will teach prayer, through the lives of these “unlikely” prayer heroes. They are dealing with problems that you and I can relate to, BUT, unlike most of us, they deal with their “Troubles” through prayer, teaching us prayer principles.

Over the next few weeks I will release portions of the book. I am already completed with most of the outline of “Book 2 – Spiritual Warfare” which I cannot wait to get started writing.

If you are wondering if the story-line is interesting, let me quote a friend of mine, “Mark, do Alexander Rich and Gretchen get together?” I just smiled at him.

Enter into the story
of 3 prayer heroes
from 3 historic prayer eras
on 2 continents
with 1 nine foot tall Angel
and a handful of demons

Please allow me to keep you posted of the book’s release below:

I have the very great honor tomorrow night of not just speaking to the congregation, but then afterwards I get to speak to a group of girls who will be taking my booklet, “Prayer Made Alive” to study through next month when they are on a retreat.

Tomorrow night I will walk them through the book giving them highlights of the articles and pointing out what they can learn from it.

And of course, we start the evening with dinner.

My New Book, “Praying Psalm 119″

Praying Psalm 119 CoverI have written a number of books, but this is the first one (since Prayer Made Alive) that I have had peace about printing. I believe this will be an excellent tool for you to cause Psalm 119 to really come alive to you.

Check out the Title Page (below) as there are a couple of appendices that you will find both encouraging and, well, fun, believe it or not.

We’ll see what happens with the other books.

From the Table of Contents:

As this ministry moves further and further in the direction that I believe God is leading it, I find myself more and more burdened to help folks learn to pray for both others and themselves. And it is not praying for blessings, rather, it is learning to pray for a properly broken spirit, accompanied by a contrite heart.

As you read these prayers I trust that the passages will come alive as you make them YOUR prayers. We, as a church, are great at shallow
repentance. But I believe that  this is a call to embrace deep repentance.

I am grateful for two things that happened in early December 2011. First, Chaplain Paul Voorhees and Dr. Joe Coley of the Ranger Joe’s God and Country Show challenged me with a daily radio prayer show. And second, the Lord and I visited together in Toccoa Georgia at the Georgia Baptist Conference Center where He and I fought over Him teaching me brokenness…Praise the Lord, I lost, and these prayers reflect that.
