Book Summary

Three thousand years ago the Lord said to Solomon: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Again, today the Lord is saying to us: “If My people – that is to say, the people who are called by the name Christian – will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
As this verse from 2 Chronicles tells us, the Lord is seeking a close relationship with His people where we humble ourselves and pray and seek His face so that He can show us our wicked ways – ways that we too often do not see, or ways we choose to overlook as just being part of the American culture. Then if we see our wicked ways, He will give us the will and the power to turn from these wicked ways by the cleansing blood of His Son, Jesus Christ, and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Thus He will bring a great revival to heal our land.
And it all starts with prayer.
Prayer is speaking with God. Prayer is a conduit to bring God’s kingdom and God’s will to “earth as it is in heaven”. Prayer is an awesome privilege. The importance and power of prayer is one of the key messages of God’s word, and it has been recognized as such by many of God’s servants.
My hope is that this small book will help make the true meaning of prayer a reality in your life so that you speak with God. I also hope that this concise summary on prayer will both speak to today’s culture of sound-bite statements and visual images, and, by using ample reference to God’s word, allow the maximum opportunity for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of the readers.
In SPEAKING WITH GOD you will find: fifteen different prayer situations; ten ways the Lord speaks to us; seven ways we obstruct the Lord's voice; seven reasons God appears to be silent; and three reasons we should fast and pray. Together they provide a beautiful tapestry of how to have a conversation with our living Lord that not only teaches us how to humble ourselves and pray and seek His face, but also feeds directly into the practical needs of life.
