Publishers Description When members of the early church cried out to God in urgent need, the place shook with the power of their supplication. In this compelling vision for modern-day supplication, Bill Gothard recognizes the key truth that only God's almighty power can rescue His children in times of distress. Using illustrations from Scripture and testimonies from everyday people, Gothard demonstrates the power of crying out -- and how God can shake the world of those who cry out to Him today. He wants your heart..."and" your voice God doesn't miss a single sigh that escapes our lips. But historically, God's people most often cried out in spoken words that sprang from the depths of their being God "heard" their petitions...and shook their worlds. "Like fasting or kneeling, "crying out" is the Scripture-sanctioned way to pray with intensity and commitment," says Bill Gothard. His compelling teaching will revolutionize the way you pray--"for all time "

The Power of Crying Out Mar 26, 2008
In 2002 my pastor's wife recommended this book. Little did she or I know how much it would mean to not only me, personally, but to family and friends. That summer my brother died of a sudden heart attack, my granddaughter was attacked by a dog (she is doing great!). In 2005 our son's condo burned with him in it...he almost died. By the grace of God, he is alive and thriving! I've shared the book with family and friends who have gone through various tragedies also. I have no idea how many of these little books I have purchased and given away. It is truly a blessing and reminds me that God IS in control and God IS the only answer!
This little gem is a must read for the serious Christian! Jul 28, 2007
In this slender volume, Bill Gothard reminds the Church of a long-neglected spiritual truth: God wants us to pray with our voices. Gothard points out the myriad of Bible passages that encourage us to cry out audibly, and illustrates the power of doing so with both Bible stories and personal testimonies. He also examines the meaning of many Hebrew words translated "cry" in the Old Testament.
Some have criticized Gothard for teaching that God doesn't hear silent prayer, or claimed that his approach is simply a "formula". In the book, Gothard acknowledges that God hears ALL His children's prayers, spoken or not, but also points out God's special love for the vocal prayer. Such prayer helps produce both the humility and fervency that God delights in, neither one of which is formulaic in the slightest. Gothard also points out reasons why God might not answer our cries (unconfessed sin, for example).
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to revitalize their prayer life.
Need a Break Through In Your Prayer Life? Jun 29, 2007
I am so glad that I found this book, cause it has certainly helped me. It has been a source of inspiration and teaching in many ways. I especially enjoyed how the author, Bill Gothard, goes into the original meanings of Hebrew in reference to different prayers. It has helped me to understand the conflict in my own spirit in times when prayer seems difficult to express, and supplied me with scriptural tools to break through. This book will remain on my shelf of prized books forever.
Life Change Book is a true statement! May 6, 2007
Just cry out and see what God will do for you. This book gives examples and suggestions for how to cry out but it is the Lord who can and will work in your life when you do.
Conceptually Fantastic Sep 19, 2006
In this "buy a solution to any problem" world there are few new things that really are worth a darn... Well this book is based on a old idea from scripture re-discovered and it makes perfect sense. IMO this is one of the best concepts when you are sincerelly calling upon God.
WARNING: This book challenges believers to call out to God with a passion. It may infer short of "calling out" could impact God's favoring our prayer. Not sure if that's so but prayer is an expression to God that we want to be in alignment with his will. It's not getting some genie to do something at our command. I don't think that it will hurt us to "Cry Out Loud" to God when it's from a sincere heart wanting God's will to be done. Does God hear us pray if we don't cry out loud? Of course he does.
