Why should I pray? What should I pray for? Why has God not answered my prayers? What if everything we prayed for came true? Would I be ready? In this essay, Eberhard Arnold describes the kind of prayer that pleases God, and the power of prayer to transform our lives and our world.
First published in German in 1913, The Prayer God Answers has been revised and expanded in this new exclusive free ebook to include important insights from Arnold's other talks and writings on the importance of prayer for individuals and the church. Arnold explores the teachings of Jesus, as well as the example of the Hebrew prophets and the early Christians, and challenges us to rediscover the prayer that shakes the world.
From the book:
Do we have the faith that through our prayer the status quo can be shattered? Can we believe that at our call Christ will come among us to judge and save? When we ask for the Holy Spirit, are we ready for God to strike us like a burst of flaming lightning, so that at last we experience Pentecost? Do we really believe that God's kingdom is imminent? Are we capable of believing that through our pleading, this kingdom will break in? Are we able to believe that as a result of our prayer the entire history of the world will be turned topsy-turvy?
Let us come to God in the absolute certainty that Jesus' words are true: "The kingdom of God has drawn near!" and, "If you have faith, nothing will be impossible for you." Wonders will take place, mountains will be torn from their place, and the whole situation as it is on earth will be changed. Mighty things will happen when we have faith.
