All Christians need to pray. But the pressures of ministry can work against prayer. Busyness. Distractions. Inconsistency. All block the quiet time needed for prayer. Yet all are part of local church ministry.
When administration, counseling, and even preaching responsibilities intrude on time with God, the power source of ministry is cut off—guilt about prayer results.
This is a book about developing guilt-free prayer. Putting the joy back in talking to God. It doesn’t prescribe one sure cure—all but tells the stories of scores of men and women who have learned to combine the stress of leadership with the release of prayer. No magic formula; but a potpourri of ideas. You decide which ideas will work for your devotional life.
It is a book about experimenting with prayer—the key to your relationship with God.
This is the second volume of THE LEADERSHIP LIBRARY, a continuing series from the editors of LEADERSHIP JOURNAL, the foremost periodical for church leader, published but Christianity Today, Inc. Volume One in the series was Well-Intentioned Dragons: Ministering to Problem People in the Church by Marshall Shelly.
THE LEADERSHIP LIBRARY doesn’t stop at theory, but goes on to suggest ways of coping with the most difficult areas of everyday ministry. It offers practical—and proven—ways to minister effectively.
