Product Description

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.

Addressing common misconceptions about prayer, then offering biblical truths and practices instead, Bill Thrasher teaches readers how to:

  • Honestly share their desires with God
  • Turn temptations into victorious prayers
  • Experience the Spirit's motivation in prayer
  • Get help when they don't know how to pray
  • Implement fasting into their prayer life
  • Move from anxiety to peace
    And more

Filled with practical insight and pastoral warmth, this book will give readers renewed enthusiasm for embarking on the essential journey of prayer. And its brief chapters, organized around various themes, make it perfect for quick reference, as does the appendix with tips for stimulating prayer.

When you know someone is a person of prayer, it is easy to be taught by them regarding prayer.  My friend Bill Thrasher is one of those people.  As you read his words you will be impressed not only with the importance of prayer, but you will find your heart stimulated to get busy about the ministry of prayer ... again.
-Joseph M. Stowell, former President, Moody Bible Institute

Here are refreshing words from the pen of a man who takes prayer seriously.  His study reveals new possibilities for the believer who dares to access God's unlimited provisions for His beloved children.
-Howard G. Hendricks, Distinguished Professor and Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary

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.
-R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor, College Church in Wheaton

This is the best book on prayer I have ever read!
-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.
-Phil Miglioratti, National Prayer Network
