There is a legendary figure named Honi who was known for his audacious prayers. He would pray for rain and it would. And not just a sprinkling, but torrents of water would fall in places not known for inundation.
Mark Batterson hits the nail on the head with a challenge for all of us to pray boldly, persistently, and for the long haul. I am personally encouraged in my faith to alter my prayer form. Rather than vaguely and singly, I am motivated and inspired to take my prayer life to a whole different level. And not just for my own purposes, but for Gods. I want my prayer life to honor all that he is in our lives on this planet in our generation.
So briefly, I make the bold suggestion for any and all of you– glean from a local pastor who has made his story available. A pastor who the Lord has used to plant a church in one of the most influential cities on the planet. We can imagine how much prayer is need there.
All you CRBCers– I so want you to read this book, that if you present the receipt to me, I will pay you for reading it. Blessings.
