Does prayer make any difference? Does it really change anything? Yes, says Dr. R.C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. Though we cannot hope that our prayers will change God’s mind, prevailing upon Him to act against His will, we can be sure that prayer does change things—including our own hearts. Plus, it is one of the chief means by which God carries out His will in the world.
For these reasons, Dr. Sproul argues, prayer has a vital place in the life of the Christian. In short chapters packed with practical wisdom, he unveils the purpose, the pattern, the practice, the prohibitions, and the power of prayer, calling Christians to come before God’s presence with joy and hope.

As your church service approaches the same time every week, are you struggling to make time for spiritual preparation?
Does worship sometimes feel more like a task than an expression?
Do you often feel alone in your pursuits as a leader or worshiper?
This well organized and timely book delivers tried and tested wisdom that can strengthen your leadership and encourage your team. It will save you time as it puts succinct, season-specific devotionals in ONE easy-to-access place.
Whether you’re a worship leader or a church attending Christian, you have experienced worship as warfare, spiritually and sometimes physically, mentally, and emotionally. At the frontline of battle, there is limited time; valuable time that could be saved by having supplemental resources, proper tools and weapons, and a tested battle plan.
As someone who has studied worship of the Christian God for more than 10 years, I’ve been your shoes! I’ve been the curious onlooker bewildered by other’s expressions. I’ve been the congregant who wanted to grow in worship. I’ve led worship in a small group and a stadium. I’ve been there, and I know it can be a battle. Instead of battling alone, come alongside me and other worship soldiers as we fight together.
There are many great books on the theology of worship, but they often require the spiritual maturity of Martin Luther or New Testament Paul himself and months to read and digest.
As We Fight only takes about 5 minutes to read each week:
- 52 weeks link modern church culture to specific times of the year.
- Increase your leadership equity with team members.
- Positively challenge your worship by giving fresh, measured perspectives.
- Directly and immediately apply these up to date references and practical challenges to your worship experiences.
Following along with these devotionals will give you a better sense of your worship culture and help you adjust to better lead and participate. You will also learn more about deciphering truth from God versus lies from the enemy. Don’t let the enemy push you away from the truths waiting in these pages!
What’s stopping you from…
- standing prepared with better tools, weapons, and battle plans;
- gaining a deeper knowledge;
- reading one of these well-timed, thoughtfully prepared encouragements for yourself or your team THIS weekend?
This work was written to increase the reader’s understanding and appreciation of God’s character, His love for righteousness, His great wisdom and His unending love. Above all, it is meant to strengthen the reader’s faith and trust in the Almighty, so that he/she may turn to Him with total assurance in the fact that He is a Father who is always fair, just, and loving.
To accomplish this aim, this book will analyze many major events that have been used by atheists and others as evidence of God’s alleged cruelty; but it will do so in a way that is both original and unusual. Each analysis will begin with the thought-provoking, hypothetical question, “What if God…?” Afterwards every event will be explored in depth. Lastly, the author will address what might have happened if God had handled each event differently.
In this work the reader will clearly see that God’s actions are invariably wise, fair and just. No matter how seemingly cruel or unjustified, every one of his interventions, when looked at closely, reveals great love, patience, wisdom and justice.

COMMENTS FROM READERS
“Do you ever talk to people who are very negative about God? If so then this book will give you some great ideas for how to handle this type of criticism. Michael Caputo examines events in the Bible that atheists find most objectionable. Like the flood, etc. I found his arguments to be very logical. He seems to have insight into God’s mind that few possess. He takes you step-by-step through the Bible and explains why each event occurred as it did and also explains what would have happened if God had not taken steps to eradicate evil.” (R.R. –Reader)
God does not expect a Christian to begin and end at the point of receiving salvation. He expects one to follow up their salvation with a continual personal development consistent with the new life.
The objective of this book is to provide you with everyday tools that you could use to transform your life and become Christ-like not only in nature, but also in deed.
Ahead of the saved is a clear path to be followed and a life to be lived. Follow the path strictly. Live the life narrowly. Walk the talk always.
A prayer to help you communicate with God as you walk, illustrated with the author’s watercolor paintings.
