Anne Graham Lotz is a bestselling author, sought after speaker, and -the best preacher in the family- according to her father, Billy Graham, and she uses the prayer of Daniel, a prayer that did move Heaven and change a nation, to communicate that this should be a pattern for our prayers today.
As the 2014 Honorary Chair of the National Day of Prayer--the largest National Day of Prayer in the history of this movement--and the host of two online prayer initiatives that attracted over 170,000 subscribers, bestselling author Anne Graham Lotz knows from personal experience that she, like millions of others, needs help in prayer.
When she lacks words, she turns to Scripture and uses the words or patterns found in the prayers of others. One prayer she has turned to multiple times is one that the prophet Daniel prayed long ago.
This book, based on Daniel's prayer in Daniel 9, helps readers to pray effectively for God's people, for their families, and for their nation. Anne deals with three components of effective prayer: preparing for prayer, pleading in prayer, and prevailing in prayer.
The Daniel Prayer answers questions, such as the following:
- 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?
