DANGEROUS PRAYERS Published by Thomas Nelson

DANGEROUS PRAYERS 50 POWERFUL PRAYERS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD is not what I expected, it is better. As I read through the book I thought of the latter portion of James 5:16: “ The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” (New King James Version) This is truly a great collection of prayers.

But, DANGEROUS PRAYERS is more than a collection of prayers it is a tribute to men and women who influenced history throughout Christian times. Prior to each prayer is a mini-biography of the author of the prayer. People such as: Polycarp (69-156) the first person recorded as being killed for his faith; Aimee Semple McPherson a well known revivalist of her time, a divorced evangelist;andeven John Newton author of the song Amazing Grace. A prayer of Abraham Lincoln can also be found. Jarena Lee (1783-1864) the first Black female to publicly preach, a free woman has one of the shortest prayers, if not they shortest. And of course the prayer of our, at least my, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ- guess which one that is!

Published by Thomas Nelson, the spectrum of prayers range from simple to formal from individuals from all walks of life representing various centuries. It is an excellent collection of prayers. Dangerous prayers? I don’t know. Powerful prayers? I don’t know. Effective prayers? Absolutely! Written by Marsha L F Randolph
