"If you remain in me and my words remain in you,
ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you."
You've likely scratched your head over this verse, wondering how literally to take it. Could Jesus have been serious about His over-the-top declaration? Can you really ask for anything?
If you think these words can't possibly mean what they say, Craig Hazen wants to reveal the astonishing reality of this promise. You'll learn why Christians hesitate to embrace this powerful statement and how you can put it to work in your life for the sake of God's kingdom.
According to the Lord himself, "asking" is the center point of prayer. He wants us to bring our fruit-bearing requests to him boldly and with expectation for the blessing of his answer.
He wants to hear our Fearless Prayer!
“Insightful, inspiring, invaluable—here's a captivating book on
prayer that goes far beyond mere platitudes. My friend Craig Hazen
takes a unique approach that will stimulate your mind as it stirs
your heart. Read on—and be prepared to grow!”
—Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ
“I could not wait to get a copy of professor Hazen’s new book on
prayer. And, wow, it exceeded my expectations! I could not put it
down and read it in one sitting. Fearless Prayer inspired me
with the affirmation that prayer actually brings answers, fed and
healed my soul by its careful and interesting treatment of
important biblical passages, and it motivated me to be more earnest
about bringing my requests before a loving Father who delights in
me and my petitions.
“What makes this book stand out from all the other books on prayer is Hazen’s skillful grounding of prayer is a brief but powerful defense of a Christian worldview and his destruction of the naturalism that all of us in the West have absorbed from our culture. This is now the go-to book on petitionary prayer. We have all had times of disappointment with God, but Fearless Prayer restores our confidence in a God who hears and answers.”
