Why is it so hard to pray?
It's something many Christians can relate to: the desire to pray but the failure to execute. A Journey to Victorious Praying will tell readers why this is—and how to move past it.

As a born worry wart, like my father, I have had to learn to seek His face to find strength. I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Thrasher that, "in God's kindness He instructs us how to process our anxiety." I pray that this book blesses many.
-Elisabeth Elliot Gren, Author and Speaker
A Journey to Victorious Praying is wide-ranging in conception, refreshingly biblical, and ever practical. Bill Thrasher has mined the Scriptures and the literature of prayer to give us a volume that will change lives. I sense that he did this magnificent work on his knees.

-Ben Haden, speaker "Changed Lives"
Bill Thrasher's book A Journey to Victorious Praying was a personal inspiration to me, and I wholeheartedly recommend it to the whole church and to anyone who desires to bring their prayer life to a new level.
-Dr. John Perkins, President, John M. Perkins Foundation
Dr. Bill Thrasher's book should be placed in the hands of every new Christian. This is a splendid invitation to much more than a spiritual discipline, it is a call to an exciting way of life with our personal and loving Lord.
-Lyle W. Dorsett, Professor of Evangelism and Spiritual Formation, Wheaton College
Bill Thrasher is "a man after my own heart"--one who lives and walks in prayer and fasting as a normal lifestyle, not dry religious duty. This very solid and balanced book studies how God is always desiring to orchestrate prayer-filled eruptions and expressions from the conditions of our daily life and calling--some which might appear difficult and challenging, but which often bring the most precious and delightful spiritual returns. One of the most truly refreshing studies on prayer to appear in years.
-Gary P. Bergel, President, Intercessors for America/Youth Interceding for America
Bill Thrasher's new book is a solid read for anyone who struggles to succeed in making prayer a serious and strategic part of daily life. I think you'll find A Journey to Victorious Praying a welcome companion on your path to prevailing prayer.
