Prayer is a high calling and an amazing privilege, and being a person of prayer is one of the most important callings in your life. Just think about this for a moment: We can talk with the God of the universe! And we can know that not only does He listen attentively and with great affection, but also He responds – by revealing His heart, giving us direction, blessing our circumstances, releasing justice, and much more.

As the founder of the International House of Prayer, Mike Bickle has devoted his life to understanding and practicing the principles and power of prayer. In Growing in Prayer he combines his biblical study with his extensive experience on the topic to give you the tools you need to turn your prayer life into one that is active and fulfilling.

Start today! God is waiting to talk with you. He doesn’t just love you. He really likes you and enjoys responding to you when you pray – even in your weaknesses. Oh the power of His grace. You can be confident that your prayers are valuable to God and will make a difference in your world.

Mike Bickle’s pastoral leadership has always had “an edge” – one that cuts through the superficial, penetrates to the substance of prophetic insight, and communicates with a God-given love for people with truth that transforms hearts. I respect his character and honor his prayerful and practical ministry as a fellow steward of God’s grace and goodness.
Jack W. Hayford, Founder, The King’s University, Dallas, Texas

God has given Mike such powerful revelation on prayer, and he shares that revelation in Growing in Prayer. This book can expand your knowledge on the importance of prayer and ignite your passion for true communion and fellowship with God.
