Maxie Dunnam’s latest forty-day study, The Intercessory Life: Breaking the Impossibility Barrier, challenges us to get beyond the cozy comforts of a “devotional” life and break into ways of living prayer that literally open new horizons of possibility. The Intercessory Life teaches a way of prayer that is more than just praying. This life is a daily fusion of sanctuaries and streets, of human pain with divine power, of turning impossible barriers into promising breakthroughs.
Yes, right now. Yes, in your world. In your church. In your home. In a prison. In a school. On the bus. In the office. On the street. This book teaches practical ways to bring us into the prayer closet and to unleash the practice of prayer in our everyday lives.
Through his patented way of teaching the Bible, Dunnam inspires faith with powerful stories and provokes action with practical exercises. Familiar, almost ethereal phrases like “abide in Christ” and “abundant life” are dissected, turned over, rearranged—inviting us to a deeper, clearer understanding of what it means to live as a light-bearing intercessor in a world still stuck in the shadows.
The Intercessory Life is great for small groups but flexible enough for individual or even a church-wide study.* Or try it for a season around the family table.
God can do a lot in forty days through those willing to take risks on the journey of faith. Maxie Dunnam gives us bold guidance in what may be his best work yet.
