The Power of Persistent Prayer: Praying with Greater Purpose and Passion


Bethany House 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This powerful guide will answer such questions as, “Why pray if God already knows my needs?,” “Why does it take so long to receive answers to my prayers?,” “How can I take my prayer life to the next level?,” and many more. Whether you wonder why your prayers aren’t answered, if God likes the way you pray, or if you’re persistent enough in your prayers, Jacobs addresses these concerns and provides solid biblical answers. She guides you with instruction, encouragement, and transparency to help you break through the barriers that stifle your prayers and become the effective, powerful prayer warrior God desires you to be.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and stimulate your personal or pastoral study. Scripture passages link directly to your preferred English translation and original-language texts; important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic to find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about prayer and intercession.
