Book Review - The Daniel Prayer


Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives. Anne Graham Lotz has found that while prayer does work, sometimes the “pray-ers” don’t. So she has turned to the prophet Daniel for help.

The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon…

Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works.

This book will help readers pray effectively for their nation, for their families, and for themselves. She will answer such questions as: • Does God only hear the prayers of good people? • How do I know the God to whom I pray will listen? • How do I know God cares about my prayer? • How do I know God will answer my prayer? • Why should I pray? • Does it matter where I am when I pray? • Are words in prayer all that matter, or does my attitude affect prayer? • What difference does my prayer make?

The book also includes some of her original prayers that demonstrate the principles taught in The Daniel Prayer.


Called “the best preacher in the family” by her father, Billy Graham, Anne Graham Lotz speaks around the globe with the wisdom and authority of years spent studying God’s Word.

The New York Times named Anne one of the five most influential evangelists of her generation. She’s been profiled on 60 Minutes, and has appeared on TV programs such as Larry King Live, The Today Show, and Hannity Live. Her Just Give Me Jesus revivals have been held in more than 30 cities in 12 different countries, to hundreds of thousands of attendees. Whether a delegate to Davos’ Economic Forum, a commentator to the Washington Post, or a groundbreaking speaker on platforms throughout the world, Anne’s aim is clear – to bring revival to the hearts of God’s people.  And her message is consistent – calling people into a personal relationship with God through His Word.

Anne is a best-selling and award-winning author. Her most recent releases are Wounded by God’s People, Fixing My Eyes on Jesus, Expecting to See Jesus and her first children’s book, Heaven: God’s Promise for Me.

Anne and her late husband, Danny Lotz, have three grown children and three grandchildren.  She is the founder and president of AnGeL Ministries.


As a Biblical teacher, Anne Graham Lotz is one of the absolute best there is. I was so excited to see her new book, THE DANIEL PRAYER, and couldn't wait to read it. There are so many books on prayer and all of them that I have read have wonderful qualities and truth but there's something about this book that really brought my prayer life into a whole new dimension.

The book is set up in four parts - Preparing for Prayer; Pleading in Prayer; Prevailing in Prayer; and Patterns for Prayer. I found this extremely helpful in guiding me in a new prayer life. She uses Daniel 9 to show us the very powerful prayer that Daniel prayed to God. I have read this many times but missed so many of the really wonderful nuances that Anne brings to our focus.

I also love all the personal stories that Anne shares not only about herself and her family but about others. I found this book to be very easy to read and I think it's because you feel so drawn in. Of course, it's a very Biblical book and you won't find anything that makes you question her view of God or the Bible.

I highlighted this book extensively and it's now a part of my quiet time and prayer time. I refer to it all the time and will also be re-reading it. It's just that good! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants their prayer life to be deeper and more meaningful. It has changed my prayer life for the better!
