The Power of Crying Out: When Prayer Becomes Mighty (Hardcover)
When members of the early church cried out to God in urgent need, the place shook with the power of their supplication. In this compelling vision for modern-day supplication, Bill Gothard recognizes the key truth that only God's almighty power can rescue His children in times of distress. Using illustrations from Scripture and testimonies from everyday people, Gothard demonstrates the power of crying out -- and how God can shake the world of those who cry out to Him today. He wants your heart...and your voice God doesn't miss a single sigh that escapes our lips. But historically, God's people most often cried out in spoken words that sprang from the depths of their being God heard their petitions...and shook their worlds. "Like fasting or kneeling, crying out is the Scripture-sanctioned way to pray with intensity and commitment," says Bill Gothard. His compelling teaching will revolutionize the way you pray--for all time
