How to Achieve Personality Through Prayer
How to Achieve Personality Through Prayer Author:Simon Blocker Do you want to labor usefully in the Lord's kingdom? To possess a radiant Christian testimony? Then, says Dr. Blocker (of Western Theological Seminary), be still and pray until the Holy Spirit has taken over your heart and made a flaming witness of you. Thus the author of this stimulating new book on prayer exhorts his reader as Jesus did the... more » disciples who were to preach the Gospel to all the nations: "Stay in the city, until you are clothed with power from on high."
What use, asks Dr. Blocker, to pray for the coming of the kingdom of God in the world when the sphere of the suppliant's inner life is a citadel of enthroned self-interest. "To stay in the city" when it is a citadel of self-interest, or when one would prefer to go out and change the world, is perhaps the Christian's most difficult tasks. How to do this, and how rewarding in the fruits and power of the Spirit such disciplined supplication can be is the burden of this book. In persuasive, evangelical tones, Dr. Blocker, author of THE SECRET OF PULPIT POWER, etc., clarifies for the reader how primal a relation prayer sustains to a life of effective witness.« less
