Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life: A Power that Transforms Lives is a non-fiction Christian Worship and Prayer book written by Horace Williams, Jr. Williams had not had much of a relationship with God until he suffered a massive stroke that left him paralyzed on his left side and bedridden. While he lay there in agony and fear, he began to call out to God. Others, family and friends, also prayed to God for his recovery, and slowly he began to regain the ability to walk, to speak without slurring, and to write a book. Williams answers many questions in his book, including what prayer is, when and how often should one pray and how forgiveness impacts one's relationship with God. Each chapter in his book addresses a power imparted through and by prayer, starting with the Power of Forgiveness and the Power of Faith and concluding with the Power of Purposeful Prayer. Each chapter contains his thoughts on the subject along with quotes from Scripture, a Power Point that briefly summarizes the topic covered, and a Power-specific prayer.

Horace Williams, Jr.'s non-fiction Christian Worship and Prayer book, Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life: A Power that Transforms Lives, briefly and eloquently explores the benefits of prayer and the richness of having a personal relationship with God. I was moved by his story and appreciated how he shared his own personal experiences throughout the book to help the reader absorb the import of his message. Williams answers a lot of the questions that many have about what prayer actually is, if it works, and why it may seem like God is not listening -- when in fact He really is. The Scriptures Williams quotes work quite well with his topics, and the Power Point summaries are a great way to make sure you've gotten the full message of the chapter. As Williams states, prayer is much more than just repeating Hail Marys or The Lord's Prayer repeatedly. A careful and reflective reading of this work will give the motivated reader a good starting point for establishing their own relationship with God. Unleash the Power of Prayer in Your Life: A Power that Transforms Lives is most highly recommended.

I know Horace and am thankful to have had the opportunity to read this book prior to its publication. I was encouraged as I read how God has used Horace's stroke and recovery process to kindle his heart to seek after Him and to pray. It reminded me that God really does use all things (even our frailty) for good. I am currently in a season of caring for young children, so life is busy. On top of that, I am easily distracted. This book reminded me that if I'm too busy to pray, I am engaging in life ill-equipped. Prayer is a powerful instrument that I would be wise not to ignore. I need the strength and peace of mind that prayer avails. Thank you, Horace, for reminding me to make time to pray.
