Unlocking the power of partnered prayer

prayer challenge“The 40 Day Prayer Challenge” was written as a resource for Pray Together, Stay Together, Inc., a national movement to promote prayer partnerships between spouses, family members and friends.

The guidelines and information given by the husband and wife team, SQuire Rushnell and Louise DuArt are helpful even if you do not plan to participate in the challenge.  As part of the challenge, prayer partners are asked to visit and take the survey on the first and fortieth days.

Rushnell and DuArt give multiple examples of how beneficial prayer is in an effort to encourage prayer partners to pray for the 40 days.  A small group Bible study is included and goes throughout the 40 day challenge.

There is a lot of good information included.  The personal stories can be lengthy and, although encouraging, can be more than you may want to read.  Rushnell and DuArt stress the importance of prayer and the challenge is the primary reason for writing the book.  If you are not interested in the challenge, you may find other books on prayer a better fit for your library.
