Christians Want to Be Effective
As I have written this Prayer Coach blog over the years, I have gained an understanding of Christians’ struggles with prayer. What I have concluded is that most Christians want their lives to be partnered with God, but they feel ineffectual in living it out. Their prayer lives are hampered because deep down they are unsure if they are doing it right. They are slow to step into the lives of those who are hurting because they don’t know how to help. Uncertainty binds Christians from being effective.
Still I believe all Christians want to partner with God. They want to access the power God has promised to bring life to those around them. God has placed in them greatness, but they are unsure how to be great. Thankfully today I get to offer you the way through.
Creative Intercession by Allison Shorter
I am excited to share with you the release of Allison Shorter’s book, Creative Intercession. Allison takes out the stress and pressure out of partnering with God and shows how this partnership can be simple, fun, and creative. As she says, “Because God is fun, partnering with Him can be fun. Many Christians want to love God and others well but get tired along the way. The good news is… Partnering with God doesn’t have to be burdensome or make you weary! Jesus said that his ‘burden is light,’ so if we are feeling heavy, He has the answer regarding how to bring lightness to our life and work.”
I think each of you would enjoy this book. Even if you are not an intercessor, Allison’s chapters on identity and the way to be great is really a must read for all. You can get it on Amazon for only $2.99: http://amzn.to/Ons5zF. It’s a great deal to release you into greater effectiveness in God’s kingdom.
