Most of us have felt it at one time or another: that unexplained prompting in our hearts to stop and pray for a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger. Sometimes we are even awakened from a deep sleep with an even deeper need to go to God in prayer. Where do those urges come from? Are they truly from God? Or are they merely stray thoughts? And if we respond in prayer, are others' lives affected at all?
In Called to Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd shares dozens of inspiring true stories of people who have heeded God's call to pray and the astonishing results of those impromptu prayers. Through accounts of people being protected from harm and rescued from danger, of needs being met and hearts being encouraged, you'll see that God is involved in an active and dynamic relationship with us--and that we can be part of his plan to bless others.
If you have ever wondered if prayer has any real effect or doubted that God communicates with us personally, this heart-stirring book will amaze, inspire, and equip you to respond to those holy promptings.

This is such an amazing and inspiring book! It will encourage you to pray more often and in all circumstances!
This book is filled with beautiful stories of extraordinary situations where prayer made a huge difference. Each one is so amazing and you'll be enthralled by them. What's really wonderful is that they will inspire you to pray!
Each one starts off with a Scripture that corresponds with the story. You can see how God's Word is full of promises for each of the circumstances we find ourselves.
