Life’s inevitable difficulties and disappointments can discourage us from praying, but our response should be to pray anyway and keep praying. Whatever we seek, God invites us to come to Him with confidence, believing that He is able to answer—and He will answer.

We can pray for:

  • Forgiveness like David
  • Wisdom like Solomon
  • Healing like Hezekiah
  • A child like Hannah
  • Deliverance like Jonah
  • Mercy like the 10 lepers
  • Salvation like the thief on the cross

But are you convinced that prayer works, even when you don’t get the answers you want? In It Happens After Prayer, Pastor HB Charles, Jr. motivates and encourages us to respond to the challenges of life with prayer, to pray without ceasing, and to pray with great expectations.

Are you ready for a new level of earnest, passionate, God-size prayers? Don’t let another day go by without praying and seeking the face of God, because it happens after prayer.

Praise for It Happens After Prayer

Reading "It Happens After Prayer" is like plugging your prayer life into an electrical socket. You will walk away motivated and inspired by the truths of Scripture about the centrality of our prayer lives.

                         Bryan Carter, Senior Pastor, Concord Church, Dallas

In a day when people have reduced prayer to skillful negotiation and a means of manipulating the will of God, Pastor Charles makes it clear that prayer is mysteriously simple—and to this contemporary generation that we can set up a cyber space cafe and a chat room with God anywhere.            

                        Dr. Melvin V. Wade Sr., Senior Pastor, Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, Los Angeles

H. B. Charles encourages all Christians to pray with the confident belief that God hears and answers prayer in his book, It Happens After Prayer. Pastor Charles is not only one of the profound and powerful preachers of his generation, but he has proven to be equally persuasive with 'pen' in hand. He writes with not only a commitment to biblical accuracy, but also as a loving and experienced pastor. Read this book, and your prayer life won't be the same!

                        Dr. Maurice Watson, Senior Pastor of Beulahland Bible Church, Macon, Georgia

Pastor Charles is a man of prayer. This and his knowledge of God’s Word shine through this book. He is faithful to the text as well as practical in his presentation. If you want to understand what the Bible says about prayer this book is for you. It is for you if you want to apply such knowledge to your personal life. Studying to share with others about prayer, H.B.’s work will be an extreme help.
