Summary

Summary

When Teens Pray richly demonstrates how God has intervened as teenagers have sought Him. Each chapter features true-life stories of the power of teens' prayers as they intercede for their high schools, families, and friends; as they pray on the mission field; and as they deal with the struggles of adolescence. "God links" -- dynamic prayer strategies supplied throughout the book -- help the reader connect with God. These amazing stories demonstrate that teenagers don't have to finish college or go to seminary for God to use them; they can impact their world and see their own lives changed as they pray -- wherever they are!

Booklist Review

Gr. 9^-12. These engrossing stories about the effect of prayer on young people's lives will find a ready audience. The stories, told mainly by teens themselves, are chock-full of examples that demonstrate prayer's power. In one, two girls who wanted to stop the violence in their school began kneeling in front of their lockers each morning to pray silently. Despite stares and snickers, and the outrage of some students who claimed that their actions violated the Constitution, the students persisted. Gradually other students began to join in, and for the first time in years, fighting in the school stopped, and students became interested in learning. At another school, Meet-You-at-the-Pole prayer sessions were initiated, during which students gathered at the flagpole to pray each morning before classes. It's a helpful, apply-the-faith-to-your-life book that shows committed kids spreading the message that prayer works. --Shelley Townsend-Hudson
