Pivotal Praying by John Hull & Tim Elmore
Scripture offers countless examples of men and women who prayed strategically and saw results. Remember Solomon's prayer for wisdom? He received it-and wealth beyond his imagination as well. And how about Hannah's desire for a child? God honored her prayer; her son Samuel became the greatest judge in Israel's history. Pivotal Praying uses these examples and others to illustrate the power of effective-and ineffective-praying. For those seeking to enlarge their prayer vision and alter their circumstances for God's glory, Pivotal Praying is an ideal resource.
How To Worship A King by Zach Neese
We were born for deep, meaningful intimacy with our Father-King. In fact, we were redeemed to serve as priests – directly accessing the throne room of Heaven to minister to God and then carry away His light and glory to a dark, hurting world. This is the most extraordinary privilege ever extended to flesh and blood. And yet... True worship is a process that is poorly understood and widely neglected in the Church. In this deep yet highly accessible book, Pastor Zach Neese, a worship leader and composer of numerous beloved worship songs, brings you powerful encouragement to step into that role along with a practical, biblical roadmap to help you on your journey.

The Papa Prayer by Dr. Larry Crabb
Like millions of Christians, Dr. larry Crabb has always considered his prayer life a weakness – "dull, intense only in crisis, occasionally meaningful and passionate but mostly lifelessly routine." But for everyone who struggles to pray in a way that matters, who is bored with prayer and doesn't know where else to turn, this groundbreaking book whispers of hope for change. Something new and real and deep started happening in him, Crabb says, when he began practicing the four steps of what he calls the PAPA prayer – a revolutionary conversational approach to talking with and enjoying God. As this fellow seeker shares his journey and education in the mysteries of prayer, he guides us to see ourselves and God in a different light . . . which will alter the way we talk – and listen – to Him.
