Pray Big

(This weeks's Flashback Friday prompt is immediately below this review.)

Pray Big:
The Power of Pinpoint Prayers

Will Davis
(Revell)
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3204-2

What types of prayers do you pray? Are your prayers generic, such as "Bless Jill" and "Be with Bob," or do you pray specific prayers? In Pray Big, Will Davis Jr discusses the importance of pinpoint prayers, urging believers to pray BHAP (big, hairy, audacious prayers). Much to my relief, this is not a name-it-and-claim-it book on how to manipulate a vending machine God. Davis teaches believers how to pray focused, specific prayers that are biblically based. From the seemingly mundane (such as lost car keys) to the magnificent (such as praying for non-believers, a spouse, and children), this book will change how you pray. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this ideal for small groups, and the appendix in the back contains 100 Pinpoint Prayers from Psalms, showing how to pray those verses for others in your life. Grab a copy of this highly practical book today!
