Prayers God Wants to Answer Oct 13, 2006
Each chapter in Earley's book focuses on stories and prayers that show us the character of God: who He is, what He's like, what He cares about, how He works in the world. According to Earley, the prayers that are most effective are those calling out to God to do those things He already wants to do: Teach us to pray. Go with us. Give us wisdom. I found it refreshing and convincing.
But then I'm going through the book chapter by chapter with a small group, which makes it that much richer.
This book is not meant to break new ground. It's full of obvious, but significant statements like this: "When Moses went into the tent to meet God, God came into the tent to meet Moses. Moses understood something we must remember: God is willing, ready, and available to meet with us when we make time to meet with Him."
Reviewer Bill Mez's complaint this book should have done what it claims cannot be done - teach readers how to do magic? - seems quite unfair.
this book could and should have been much more. Sep 16, 2006
this book should have done much more in given readers or christians exactly what it claims cannot be done -revealing some of the deepest secrets,techniques,and experiences of prayer. such information is what people need to solve their problems,and live a more fulfilled and happy life;nothing more nothing less. the book oversimplifies the issues with basic prayer statements like,''bless me,give me success today,go with us,answer me,lord help me''.e.t.c. If it were as simple as that,then surely all humanities problems would have been solved,and we would all be living heavenly lives. the truth of the matter is, such oversimplified prayers will work if there is the secret of powerful spiritual techniques behind them. for example, the kabbalists try at least to give people a means of achieving this by revealing the sacred names of God which can release spiritual power to back prayer statements like those made in the book. a verse in psalm ninety one states,''when he calls to me i will answer him because he knows my name,'' this statement indicates the need for the deeper sacred knowledge which,it is my conviction ,the spiritual masters of the bible had. again, the statement by christ that''not every one who calls me lord,lord will enter the kingdom of heaven''implies on a deeper level that those who know the secrets of the sacred knowlege of divinity will qualify. that is the problem i find with most christian ministries,there is a lot of quotations and story telling which often generates no powerful help for people. i believe it is now extremely incumbent upon church leaders today to seek out and give to thier flock some of the sacred words and power which lies hidden within power bases of divinity. Dr.Dave Early,the author of this book narrates the story of Elijah,and the prophets of Baal,and sites the prayer suppossedly used by Elijah to send down fire from heaven to consume the offering,as ''answer me.'' if it were as simple as this why can't this dramatic episode be dramatically emulated today by the average or established ministeries? i say,it's because there was ,and is more to it than meets the eye. Elijah and the biblical masters,in my view, were keepers of potent and sacred tradition which is not revealed in the bible,only the stories and incidents are told. to write a prayer book without some of the basic spiritual technology to empower the prayers,and to make it genuinely work in peoples lives leaves people dissapointed,and disillusioned. i would like to refer readers to a book called,''christianity with power''by charles craft who deals with why a lot of christian ministeries today operate without true power.
