How’s your prayer life? You routinely connect with God in prayer, but you long for something more. You deeply desire a fresh encounter with the blazing presence of God. But how do you get there?
Prayer on Fire is what happens when your initiative to meet with God in prayer connects with his initiative to meet you with his passionate presence. Discover how God calls his people to expect, welcome, and invite his presence in their prayers through the Holy Spirit. You’ll learn the biblical steps to take to experience the reality of the Holy Spirit’s presence in your daily prayer life. And you’ll experience the truth that prayer ablaze with the Holy Spirit isn’t boring, routine, or safe. It’s alive and life-giving. It brings heaven to earth. It’s what you were made for.

Over the many years that I have known Fred Hartley, he has modeled what one who gives himself fully to Christ looks like: a person of passionate prayer and focus. With creative insight, he shows how me might surrender ourselves to the Holy Spirit and await his fire and filling.
—Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker
Prayer on Fire will be a book that will have a lasting impact on your life. Fred doesn’t just write about fire, he craves, longs for, and lives the passion and intensity that fire brings. The church has confused the dust of human effort from the cloud of God’s presence. You need to read this book.
—Alice Smith, cofounder and executive director, US Prayer Center
Prayer on Fire is a wonderful explanation of how the Holy Spirit makes prayer happen in a person and in a church. My prayer life also used to be a duty, a ‘flicker’ in flame. Then the Holy Spirit touched me, and I could not pray enough. I am so thankful for this book’s message and the fruit it will inspire in the church.
—Terry Teykl, founder, Renewal Ministries
Fred Hartley’s book Prayer on Fire is a convicting, encouraging, challenging, Christ-exalting call to a basic long neglected by the West: prayer! If there is a spiritual fiber in your being, it will call you to passionately embrace renewed communion with God and drive away the mechanical routine of voicing but not praying the thoughts of your heart. It will revitalize your spiritual life. It’s a must-read!

We stand at the threshold of a nationwide Christ-awakening in answer to over two decades of united prayer across the land. In this remarkable book, Fred shapes our expectations about how this impending move of God will manifest itself, showing us ways to enter into it even now. The hope that springs from the last chapter is by itself worth the price of the book!
