My Read of the Month:
Title: Don’t Just Stand There, Pray Something: The Incredible Power of Intercessory Prayer
Genre: Discipleship/Spiritual Development
I must confess that I don’t have a wide collection of books on prayer. Nor do I read a lot of books on prayer.
But this has to be the best book on prayer I have gotten my hands on in spite of it being published more than 20 years ago. This shows the timeless-ness of prayer.
The author does a great job in sharing comprehensively on this subject without boring the reader with an overload of theology. He shares many relevant anecodotes and personal experiences that helps readers understand about prayer.
The book is systematically broken down in 20 chapters with four parts: (1) God’s great idea, (2) The secret kingdom’s secret weapon, (3) The life that prays and (4) The God who hears.
Definitely a must-read for all Christians. You will be motivated and inspired to pray down a storm in your life and community!
Who should read it: Christ-followers who desire to be an effective prayer or to have an intimate prayer life with God.

I would rather choose to believe in:
“Don’t just stand there, DO something”
Ha ha… of cos… I guess the author was intentional in spoofing that familiar statement that you used- “Don’t just stand there, DO something” for his book title.
I am with you on the DOing part. But I also believe in the supernatural part going in hand with the natural part of our doing.
These two elements makes a powerful combination =)
