Sometimes He Whispers Sometimes He Roars
Learning to Hear the Voice of God
Most books on prayer describe answers to the author’s personal prayers. This book not only does that but also shows how the author became the answer to other people’s prayers. Marilynn tells her story of how as an ordinary mom, she has moved from her own neighborhood to the inner city to genocide-torn Africa. She also tells of meeting two African presidents and becoming deeply involved with the poor in Sudan.
But much more than her personal story, this book offers a multitude of practical helps for readers to jumpstart their own prayer journey with step-by-step instructions, training, and tips.
Inspirational principles—such as “Double for Your Trouble,” which teaches that those who suffer pain and trouble are often doubly blessed by God—ground readers and equip them for prayer. And inspirational stories—such as “Pennies from Heaven,” which tells how the author found pennies everywhere only to discover that God was trying to tell her something—motivate readers to move forward in their own prayer journey.
Finally, a twenty-page, eight-week Leaders Study Guide is included at the end of the book for those who want to share and teach this book’s methods to others.
