A Word for Pastors from Dr. Frizzell

As a long time pastor, missionary and conference leader, I well know the challenges of leading today’s churches into true spiritual awakening. Yet in Christ, there is hope and all things are possible! In certain parts of the world, the Lord is moving mightily. By following three timeless biblical principles, church really can experience powerful renewal and growth. As a process of returning to God, we recommend a three part churchwide book journey.

How to Develop a Powerful Prayer Life

The Biblical Path to Holiness and Relationship with God

First, prayerfully consider having church members from high school up to read and pray through the book, How to Develop a Powerful Prayer Life. In today’s world, many believers have unintentionally settled for personal prayer times that stop short of fullest closeness and power in Jesus. Without being complicated or overwhelming, this Scripture filled book takes believers to a biblical level of intimacy and spiritual power. Churches can easily do it in either a five or nine week reading schedule. (Reading two chapters a week takes five weeks and one chapter per week takes nine.) Renewal and returning to God require a strong personal prayer life. The book helps to make it a reality.

Return to Me Says the Lord

A Journey of First Love Surrender

Second, after reading the prayer life book, ask the congregation to pray through Return to Me Says the Lord. It is helpful to allow one week for reading the Introduction and then three weeks for the twenty-one day devotional prayer schedule. This book is about full heart surrender for renewed closeness and power in Christ. But beyond deep heart cleansing and renewal, the book concludes with practical covenants for living out our daily obedience. In these concise covenants, believers are equipped for powerful daily prayer times, full surrender and power, evangelistic prayer and spiritual awakening. No repentance is complete without a commitment to ongoing surrender and Spirit-empowered obedience. This resource helps both become a reality.

Powerful Prayer for Every Family

Prayers that Protect and Transform

Third, I recommend that churches ask parents to read through the book, Powerful Prayer for Every Family. In this tool, couples and single parents learn to experience powerful (yet simple) marriage and family prayer. Parents also learn to pray effective biblical prayers that both protect and transform their loved ones. In a day of intense spiritual warfare, it has never been more crucial for couples and parents to know how to understand prayer that tears down spiritual strongholds. In Powerful Prayer for Every Family, believers learn biblical ways to pray victoriously. Renewal and returning to God require effective prayer in families. This tool makes it possible for all.
