New York Times best-selling author John Eldredge offers readers a step-by-step guide to effective Christian prayer.

Some prayers work. Some prayers don't. Why

Why does it surprise us when our prayers don't bear fruit Some diets work, but most don't; some investments produce, but others don't; some schools are effective, but others fail. With most things, there is simply a way they work best. And so it is with prayer.

We want it to go like this: God is loving and powerful. We need his help. So we ask. The rest is up to him. But the uncomfortable truth is that this is a naive view of prayer that ignores a simple fact. Namely, there is a way that prayer works best. And it isn't like that.

In Moving Mountains, John Eldredge lays out the truth about how effective prayer works and debunks the myths that are keeping you from the successful prayer life every Christian wants. If your prayers don't seem to be working, it might be time for a tune-up. Everything is more effective when you understand the way it works, even prayer.

Some prayers work. Some prayers don t. Why? Why does it surprise us when our prayers don t bear fruit? Some diets work, but most don t; some investments produce, but others don t; some schools are effective, but others fail. With most things, there is simply a way they work best. And so it is with prayer. We want it to go like this: God is loving and powerful. We need his help. So we ask. The rest is up to him. But the uncomfortable truth is that this is a naive view of prayer that ignores a simple fact. Namely, there is a way that prayer works best. And it isn t like that. In The Way It All Works, John Eldredge lays out the truth about how effective prayer works and debunks the myths that are keeping you from the successful prayer life every Christian wants.

Meet the Author

John Eldredge

John Eldredge is an author, a counsellor, and teacher. He is also president of Ransomed Heart, a ministry devoted to helping people discover the heart of God, recover their own heart in his love, and learn to live in his Kingdom. He is also the author of numerous books, including Epic, Waking the Dead, Wild at Heart, and Desire, and co-author of Captivating and The Sacred Romance.

John grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles (which he hated), and spent his boyhood summers on his grandfather's cattle ranch in eastern Oregon (which he loved). John met his wife Stasi in high school (in drama class). But their romance did not begin until they each came to faith in Christ, after high school. John earned his undergraduate degree in Theatre, and directed a theatre company in Los Angeles for several years before moving to Colorado with Focus on the Family, where he taught at the Focus on the Family Institute.

John earned his master's degree in Counselling from Colorado Christian University, under the direction of Larry Crabb and Dan Allender. He worked as a counselor in private practice before launching Ransomed Heart in 2000. John and Stasi live in Colorado Springs with their three sons.

While all of this is factually true, it somehow misses describing an actual person. He loves the outdoors passionately, especially living in the Rocky Mountains, and all beauty, Shakespeare, bow hunting, a good cigar, anything having to do with adventure, poetry, March Madness, working in the shop, fly fishing, classic rock, the Tetons, fish tacos, George MacDonald, green tea, buffalo steaks, dark chocolate, wild and open places, horses running, and too much more to name. He also uses the expression "far out" way too much.
