Guest Post by Barb Hegreberg

 I was in the midst of a 7-day YouVersion reading plan entitled Dangerous Prayers and it has truly been transformative.

So far the topics have been:

  • Why Your Prayers Need to be Dangerous
  • Your Will Be Done
  • Search Me
  • Reveal My Fears

The final three days will discuss:

  • Break Me
  • Send Me
  • Disturb Me

Are you willing to pray those dangerous prayers? I am!! For when we pray these types of prayers God shows up in a mighty way.

The reading plan is based on the book Dangerous Prayers: Because Following Jesus Was Never Meant to Be Safe by Craig Groeschel.

The synopsis of the book is as follows:

Do you ever wonder, “Why doesn’t God answer my prayers?” Do you wish you could see the evidence that prayer changes lives? Are you tired of playing it safe with your faith? In Dangerous Prayers, New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel helps you unlock your greatest potential and tackle your greatest fears by praying stronger, more passionate prayers that lead you into a deeper faith.

Prayer moves the heart of God–but some prayers move Him more than others. He wants more for us than a tepid faith and half-hearted routines at the dinner table. He’s called you to a life of courage, not comfort.

This book will show you how to pray the prayers that search your soul, break your habits, and send you to pursue the calling God has for you. But be warned: if you’re fine with settling for what’s easy, or you’re OK with staying on the sidelines, this book isn’t for you. You’ll be challenged. You’ll be tested. You’ll be moved to take a long, hard look at your heart.

But you’ll be inspired, too.

You’ll be inspired to pray boldly. To pray powerfully. To pray with fire. You’ll see how you can trade ineffective prayers and lukewarm faith for raw, daring prayers that will push you to new levels of passion and fulfillment. You’ll discover the secret to overcome fears of loss, rejection, failure, and the unknown and welcome the blessings God has for you on the other side.

You’ll gain the courage it takes to pray dangerous prayers.

YES, I HAVE ADDED IT TO MY “WANT TO READ” LIST ON GOODREADS. I WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES.

We would like to thank Barb Hegreberg for this awesome book review. Barb has a fantabulous website My Life In Our Father’s World. It’s a one stop shop that has everything from “100 Words” to “Just Life” and everything in between. She believes that God has a unique plan for each of us. And her website is a testament to that fact. It is very encouraging and uplifting! Stop in—take a look around. Again, thank you sooo much Barb. Blessings and Peace.
