The Prayer That Changes Everything: The Hidden Power of Praising God

by Stormie Omartian

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

The Prayer that Changes Everything is Stormie Omartianís book about the attributes of God, and why and when to praise Him. Detailing the power of praise and explaining its purpose, this book follows closely in the steps of The Power of a Praying series.

Author of many best-selling books on prayer, Stormie Omartian shares her struggles openly. Broken into two parts -- why praise God and when to praise God -- this book can be a resource in times of need of encouragement. Each chapter includes a prayer, scripture passages, and review questions.

Using personal anecdotes, this book has a conversational tone, which makes for easy reading. Loaded with scriptural references, each chapter has a quote from a Christian luminary such as Jack Hayford, C.S. Lewis, Joni Tada, Tony Evans, David Jeremiah, and Oswald Chambers.

This is a timely message of the power of worship in the life of believers. If you found the Power of a Praying series to your liking, then this is a book for you. If you are already a worshipper and relate intimately with the Lord, there is hardly any new ground covered. I recommend this book for any who want to experience God in worship. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

Stormie Omartian, the bestselling author who has helped millions of people develop a powerful prayer life, now inspires readers to open their lives to the prayer that changes everything-the prayer of praise to God.

Intimate conversations with God often focus on immediate needs, concern for others, and direction regarding His will, but praise requires believers to look beyond themselves and their circumstances and place their attention solely on God. Stormie shares personal stories, biblical truths, and practical guiding principles to reveal the wonders that take place when Christians offer praise in the middle of difficulties, sorrow, fear, and, yes, abundance and joy.

Study questions are included in each chapter, making The Prayer That Changes Everything perfect for personal application or group discussions.
