Every Christian wants to be more like Jesus—and, wonderfully, that's what God wants for us too: "It is God’s will that you should be sanctified" (1 Thessalonians 4 v 3).
How will that happen? Only by asking God to transform us from the inside out—because real heart change comes not by our own willpower, but by the Spirit's power.
Too often though our prayer lives are reduced to shopping-list-style-requests or desperate pleas to get through the day. But this little guide will help you to pray for genuine, deep and astonishing Christian growth, in your own life or somebody else's. These are prayers your heavenly Father loves to answer—because they're based on his word.
Each section takes a passage of Scripture and suggests 5 things to pray for a particular area of your Christian life. Because when we pray in line with God's priorities as found in his word, our prayers are powerful and effective (James 5 v 16)—and that's a truly thrilling prospect.
