<transcy>Transforming Prayer (Transformons nos prières)</transcy>
It's no wonder that so many people are discouraged by prayer. Instead of an authentic encounter with God, prayer becomes more of a list of requests. Perhaps you also seek the hand of God more often than the face of God.
But how to enter into real communion with God through prayer? For nearly three decades, renewal spokesperson and Pastor Daniel Henderson has helped countless Christians transform their prayer lives. Now in this book he shows you how:
• Overcome common obstacles to effective prayer
• Revitalize your prayers with simple biblical prayer templates
• Become sensitive to the guidance of the Holy Spirit prompted by passages of the Scriptures
When your personal worship is based on worship, your faith will grow and your entire life will be transformed.
Pastor for over 25 years, Daniel Henderson has brought prayer-based renewal to many large churches and now devotes most of his energy to helping congregations across the United States experience renewal and transformation.
Despite its importance, very few Christians would say they are satisfied with their prayer life. Instead of accepting this apathy, Daniel invites the reader to seek the face of the Lord in a way that challenges and transforms him. It sets out a practical and doable plan that enables Christians to transform an ordinary prayer life into an extraordinary prayer life. Filled with personal stories and Bible examples, Turning Our Prayers is a clear call to a more compelling prayer life.

Transforming Our Prayers is a message of metamorphosis. In urging us to set aside an individual-centered prayer life of wishlists, Daniel Henderson is gifting a treasure to the body of Christ by inviting us to passionately continue the presence of Jesus. A message distilled from her own journey, developed in her faithful ministry, and delivered with clarity and precision.
- Jennifer Kennedy Dean, The Praying Life Foundation
As I work with pastors and counselors who serve thousands of believers around the world, I am more convinced than ever of the human heart's desperate desire for positive, permanent change. Nothing is more essential to this kind of transformation than the power of prayer. No one knows how to equip believers in prayer better than Daniel Henderson. I have experienced the rationale for his ministry and seen the impact of his teaching. I hope you embrace the power for change presented in this relevant book.
- Tim Clinton, President of the American Association of Christian Counselors
When we change the way we pray, God changes the way we live. Sadly, many Christians are stuck in a lifeless prayer routine that leaves them discouraged and confused. Daniel has spent his entire ministry equipping the Church for a powerful prayer life. I am confident that the message of this book will awaken your heart and show you the path to a new level of spiritual intimacy and transformation.
