Moving Mountains: How You, God, and Prayer Can Change Things for Good by John EldredgeWhy Some Prayers Work, Why Some Don t, and How You and God Can Change Things for Good
How would it feel to enter into prayer with confidence and assurance certain that God heard you and that your prayers would make a difference?
It would likely feel amazing and unfamiliar. That s because often our prayers seem to be met with silence or don t appear to change anything. Either response can lead to disappointment or even despair in the face of our ongoing battles and unmet longings especially when we don t know if we re doing something wrong or if some prayers just don t work.
New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge confronts these issues directly in Moving Mountains by offering a hopeful approach to prayer that is effective, relational, and rarely experienced by most Christians.
In a world filled with danger, adventure, and wonder, we have at our disposal prayers that can transform the events and issues that matter most to us and to God. Moving Mountains shows you how to experience the power of daily prayer, learn the major types of prayers including those of intervention, consecration, warfare, and healing and to discover the intimacy of the cry of the heart prayer, listening prayer, and praying Scripture.
Things can be different, and you personally have a role to play with God in bringing about that change through prayer. It may sound too good to be true, but this is your invitation to engage in the kind of prayers that can move Gods heart as well as the mountains before you.

This review will be somewhat biased. They were very gracious. Great guy; great wife. He walks-the-walk and talks-the-talk from what I know about him. As a reader, you mostly want to know if the book was helpful—did it reach it goals? The point of Moving Mountains is that God is still powerful, prayer still works, we need to grow-up, invite the Holy Spirit into our deep issues, and exercise our authority in Christ.
Why does it seem as if some prayers work and others don't? Are we doing something wrong? How do we keep from losing heart and giving up on the very weapon God has given us to not lose heart? In Moving Mountains , John Eldredge explores these questions to deepen our understanding of our relationship with God in prayer. Only when we realize that prayer is not just asking God to do something, but a partnership, will we begin to pray more effectively and with power.
