SUMMARY: Do you desire to experience God’s transcendent power in your life? God in His goodness rescued me from a dark and dangerous path my life was headed down. I have experienced His power in my own life. Prayer is a mystery that we struggle to understand. Do you realize that your prayer life is a reflection of your relationship with Jesus Christ?
The BookViral Review: A poignant Christian reflection and vernacular aid to devotion, Unleash the Power of Prayer in your Life might be a relatively short read but it’s one that makes a significant contribution to congregational life and health. Written in simple unpretentious prose Williams Jr. draws on his relationship with God and his personal experiences to implicitly assert the place of prayer in the conduct of a meaningful life. Refreshingly uplifting in its honesty, it’s clear from the start that there’s a sharp and probing mind at work as his prose recount pivotal events in his life. This alone is a reason to pick up a copy and begin reading but Williams Jr. goes beyond this to share his years of reflection and interpretation to create a template for personal and lasting transformation through the power of prayer.
With eight structured chapters, he shows us how we can advance the Gospel of Christ through prayer. Yes, his words are aimed primarily at the Christian community where they will likely solicit much in the way of reflection and discussion but there is a wider subtext that explores the nature of how we communicate with those around us and on this level, his words engender an even broader readership.
With congregations around the world increasingly engaging in communal discernment there is much we can take from Unleash the Power of Prayer in your Life and it is highly recommended.
