Prayer is a vital way to commune with God amid a busy and unrelenting world. In Ignite Your Life: 14 Powerful Things That Happen When You Pray, author Frankie Mazzapica engages readers with specific passages in the Bible that transform our prayer time with God and renew our lives.

God’s desire is to increase your sphere of influence to put you in positions you could have never imagined to make an eternal impact.

Ignite Your Life reveals the power within every prayer you pray. Appointments alone with God, coupled with short prayers throughout the day, will cause your relationship with your Lord to be more real than any other relationship in your life.

Life rarely goes as planned, particularly when we rely on our own plans rather than God’s. This can cause our faith in God’s faithfulness to waver. In Everyday Prayers for Faith, author Erin H. Warren unpacks the precious promises of God that offer reassurance that He goes before us no matter what our earthly circumstances.

You will learn how God:

• Lifts your burdens to give you rest

• Provides an abundance of comfort that you can extend to others

• Shares a steadfast love that never wavers

• Gives you His strength to keep running the race

Brooke McGlothlin, founder of Million Praying Moms, coordinated this series of 30-day devotionals to inspire women to pray using the Word of God.

While some people respond to the cares and concerns of our day through anger, And: The Restorative Power of Love in an Either/Or World attempts to offer a response steeped in the heartbeat of Love. This book is an invitation to encounter the lived experience and philosophical musings of another as a human, not as a project or agenda to conquer. Without apology, it embraces humanity and all the emotions, back stories, and history that come along with who we are and who Love is inviting us to be. Touching on issues of race, body, motherhood, church, and wonder, these writings are from the stirrings of author Felicia Murrell’s soul, extending an invitation to sit with Spirit in the process of mindful meditation. Discover how the restorative power and uniting thread of Love might be stitching each of us to the world and to each other.

At age twenty-one, the pain of losing her mother to cancer sent Laurel Mathewson—with a naturally skeptical and questioning outlook—on a years-long existential journey. After an unexpected, overwhelming experience of God’s love, Laurel felt God say to her, “Turn to Teresa. She will guide you.” She understood that “Teresa” was the sixteenth-century saint Teresa of Avila, but she knew very little about her. Even after becoming an Episcopal priest, she had never read more than a few pages of Teresa’s writings. This beautifully written and moving memoir illustrates an ancient reality still very much alive today: the love and closeness of a good God, as known through Jesus Christ, who seeks to move out into the world, into our very bodies and lives. Not by nature or training inclined to believe such a wild claim, Laurel discovered that God is full of surprises—and offers the gift of healing.

Teresa of Avila, the beloved Christian mystic, describes the human soul as an “interior castle,” or a series of “dwelling places” of great grandeur, beauty, and value. Her book is a tour of the different ways we relate to God in prayer. Many books on prayer are about what we do to pray, but there are relatively few, like The Interior Castle, that focus on what God does in prayer— particularly the sometimes inexplicable ways He gives us experiences of love, healing, strength, insight, companionship, and knowledge of His presence in, and will for, our lives. This new edition, edited by Laurel Mathewson, author of An Intimate Good: A Skeptical Christian Mystic in Conversation with Teresa of Avila, brings Teresa’s writings into clear focus while modernizing this classic text to include shorter paragraphs, simpler sentence structure, and updated vocabulary.

All around the world, women yearn for a perfect life they can never grasp. They want to be successful, attractive, sexually fulfilled, and free from distress. Rather than turning to God, too many try to feast on everything under the sun—diet pills, pornography, shopping sprees, one-night stands, social media, Botox—anything that hits that sweet spot. In the end, they are left with a deep sense of shame. They totally get Paul’s woeful lament, “I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing” (Romans 7:19). These women feel alone, unseen and unsatisfied, but author Angie Haskell wades into their despair. With disarming wit and boldness, she empowers readers to take a hard look at their secret cravings, understand where they are coming from, and get on a path that leads to emotional and physical health.

“I believe God is bringing forth a new generation of people like you who will stand in faith, trust completely in His holy Word, confront the fears that paralyze us, and defeat the enemy of our souls,” says international evangelist Chris Mikkelson. “You are part of that generation of believers God wants to use to reach our world with boldness and miraculous power.”

Mikkelson has held meetings for millions and seen a multitude of healings and changed lives. Activating Miracles is filled with faith-building teachings and inspiring stories that demonstrate the miraculous events taking place today, from the United States to so-called closed nations, including Pakistan, where God is working in an unprecedented way.

Prepare to move in a realm of faith that unlocks miracles in your life, enables you to overcome difficult obstacles, and allows you to move into a higher level of ministry to many others who need healing and deliverance. Prepare to activate the miraculous
