Item description for Pray Big: The Power of Pinpoint Prayers by Jr. Davis Will...
Overview Believers are called to a more risky and rewarding practice of prayer in a guide that takes them from the point of weakness to one of boldness by teaching them prayers that get things done. Original.
Publishers Description Do we test the Holy Spirit's patience with prayer that asks nothing of him? This might sound surprising at first blush, but most people have experienced being at a prayer meeting, in church, or (gasp ) in their own personal prayer time and hearing prayers like this: "God, bless Tom" or "God, just be with Sue in her need." Will Davis Jr., pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship, calls believers to a more risky and rewarding practice of prayer. "Pray Big" teaches readers how to pray with biblical, pinpoint accuracy. In other words, it teaches them prayers that get things done. From audacious prayers for miracles to mundane prayers about lost car keys, Davis takes the reader from a point of weakness to one of boldness. As a result, readers will want to pray more, they will see more results from their prayers, and they will be emboldened to ask God for everything he has promised them.
From Publishers Weekly Everything is bigger in Texas-even prayer. Davis pastors the Austin Christian
Fellowship church, whose attendance averages 1,100 strong and where he
challenges his congregation to "pray big": praying in specifics rather than
generalities and pleading with such focus as to pinpoint the exact need. Davis
dissects the Lord's Prayer, telling readers that today's believers should
follow the same precise pattern for every prayer offered. Analyzing Jesus'
prayer, Christians can see that Christ petitioned for certain exact "targets":
God's glory, God's agenda, God's provision, relational health and God's
protection. Davis encourages fellow intercessors to begin developing a prayer
discipline that beseeches God's favor for the mundane as well as the
miraculous, for the rejuvenation of the spiritually dead and for unifying
agreement with spouses, children and even oneself. A particularly insightful
section deals with effectively interceding for nonbelievers through persistent
and continuous prayer, asking Jesus to have compassion on those individuals,
meet them where they are, call them by name and remove any spiritual stumbling
blocks from their lives. Davis's work not only urges Christians to pray, but
teaches them how to do so with theological accuracy. (July) Copyright 2007

How to Pray Sep 22, 2009
If you're looking for a book to convince you that Christianity is the way, then this book is probably not the one you want. If you've already bought in and are looking for ways to supercharge your prayers, then this book is one you MUST read. How to pray, what to pray for, who to pray with...all these questions and more are answered. Will's style is very conversational and he fills the book with real life examples and backs everything up with the most authorative source on prayer, the Bible. I've already noticed an improvement in the quality of my prayers and I know they will continue to improve based on the knowledge and guiding inspirations found in this book.
As a bonus, if you have a chance to stop by Austin Christian Fellowship and listen to Will speak in person, do so. He's even more dynamic and engaging in person. If not pick up any of his books and you'll get the closest thing to being there.

Pray Big: The Power of Pinpoint Prayers - This is an amazing book. I'm going to participate in prayer meetings using this book and I'm asking others in my church to join. I truly believe God wants to help us make the world a better place if we'll only ask. Will Davis did a terrific job getting me excited about the power we have available through God when 2 or more agree. We should all be doing this and following these beautifully written examples. Thanks Will Davis. God Bless YOU!
