Make Your Voice Heard in Heaven: How to Pray with Power by Barry C. Black
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Dr. Black always inspires my heart. He has this calm, trusting way about his words that inspire your heart to act on God’s word. He is a man that knows God’s truth is true.
His latest book, inspired by his speech from the National Prayer Breakfast, does not fail. From reminding us that we are a people to be praying for each other to reminding us to be intimate, quiet listeners before the Lord, Dr. Black stirs the coals of faith to flame.
I was challenged countless times to change and reinvigorate how I pray. The section on cultivating reverential awe spoke deeply to me. Help me think more of you, Jesus.
There were many points on types of effective ways to pray. My main takeaways were about personal repentance and how we are meant to be more of an us in prayer. Read all of his books. You won’t be disappointed.
“When I was younger, I heard someone in church remind us that, in reciting the Lord’s Prayer, we never once say I. We never say my. Neither can we pray the Lord’s Prayer without praying for one another. For when we ask for our daily bread, we must include our brothers and sisters. Every petition we make involves other people as well as ourselves. From beginning to end, the Lord’s Prayer guides us to pray with unselfish intimacy.”
