Book Description: From one of the beloved creators of Schoolhouse Rock and the popular GodWink series, New York Times bestselling author SQuire Rushnell teams up with his wife Louise DuArt for The 40 Day Prayer Challenge—a simple yet powerful idea that encourages partners to pray together for just five minutes a day for forty days.
SQuire and Louise have practiced daily prayer together for sixteen years. Now, they offer readers step-by-step advice on where, when, and what words to use in praying with another person: be it a spouse, loved one, family member, or a friend. In a straight-forward fashion, with astonishing examples of how Partnered Prayer can restore relationships and revitalize families, countless questions are answered including:
-How do we start praying together?
-Can we pray about anything?
-How do I get my mate to pray with me?
-Does romance get better when you pray together?
-Is there scientific evidence for prayer?
-What if my prayers aren’t answered?
In association with several prominent mega-churches and Baylor University’s Institute for the Studies of Religion, SQuire and Louise are initiating the first empirical research study ever done on the effects of prayer among two people over an extended period. The 40 Day Prayer Challenge also provides a no-cost online opportunity to participate in the ongoing study. When the fun and transformational challenge finishes at forty days, prayer partners will receive a scorecard on how well they did, and join others in experiencing the amazing, wonderful things that happen during Partnered Prayer.
Prayer is an ancient spiritual practice that seeks to unify our hearts with God. Many of us pray alone, silently to ourselves. And yet, we have been told by spiritual leaders that prayer is most powerful when it is done with others. This exciting new book gives you all of the tools you need to start using your resources and really change your life and see your prayers answered. It offers a bold and fun approach to the most intimate and important activity of our lives, connecting to God. Filled with strength and disarming realness, this book will take your spirituality, your relationships, and your deepest desires into a whole new dimension of possibility and accomplishment. I am so excited for everyone who reads this book!
