Peppered with historical references to John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, and many others, this book shows how you and I stand in continuity with countless Christians throughout the ages whose lives orbited around the privilege of prayer.

A Call to Extraordinary Prayer is part study of prayer in Acts, and part rally cry to the church gathered to pray. Read it and you will be greatly encouraged and motivated to pray because we pray to our great God, good and powerful, and the sovereign overseer of our lives. Read it and you will most likely be rebuked as the spotlight is shone on your own prayer life. The church gathered is the church praying: is that true of us?
Jenny Salt, Dean of Students, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Sydney
Any book that causes me to reflect deeply on whether I am a prayerfully dependent child of God and minister of Christ's church, and whether our church is truly a strong church, gets a big 'thumbs up' and 'thanks be to God!'. A Call to Extraordinary Prayer certainly did both those things for me. As a result of reading this book, I've been praying more. As a result of reading this book, I've led the church, and especially the leaders, to be praying more. For this, I and the church God has entrusted me to pastor, thank you.

... disarmingly honest about our battle with prayerlessness and engagingly practical about how all Christians can have the privilege of participation in this crucial struggle.

It inspires a sense of awe and excitement about what God might be pleased to do when his people seek him in earnest prayer.
Mike McKinley, Senior Pastor, Sterling Park Baptist Church, Virginia
... biblical, readable and well-illustrated. The relationship of Word and prayer must be restored in our lives and churches.
D. Eryl Davies, Elder, Heath Evangelical Church, Cardiff & Consulting Editor, Evangelical Magazine
