Why Some Prayers Work, Why Some Don't, and How You and God Can Change Things for Good
How would it feel to enter into prayer with confidence and assurance - certain that God heard you and that your prayers would make a difference? It would likely feel amazing and unfamiliar. That's because often our prayers seem to be met with silence or don't appear to change anything. Either response can lead to disappointment or even despair in the face of our ongoing battles and unmet longings - especially when we don't know if we're doing something wrong or if some prayers just don't work. New York Times best-selling author John Eldredge confronts these issues directly in Moving Mountains by offering a hopeful approach to prayer that is effective, relational, and rarely experienced by most Christians.
In a world filled with danger, adventure, and wonder, we have at our disposal prayers that can transform the events and issues that matter most to us and to God. Moving Mountains shows you how to experience the power of daily prayer, learn the major types of prayers - including those of intervention, consecration, warfare, and healing - and to discover the intimacy of the cry of the heart prayer, listening prayer, and praying scripture. Things can be different, and you personally have a role to play with God in bringing about that change through prayer. It may sound too good to be true, but this is your invitation to engage in the kind of prayers that can move God's heart as well as the mountains before you.

Eldridge is able to draw you in by using everyday experiences to get a point across, without being overly simplistic or talking at you or down to you! You come away with 'this is doable'! Not Churchy and boring - leaves you wanting more!
By far his best book yet on the life of being a Christian and maturing in Christ. Looking for more and a better understanding in your walk with Jesus? Then this is a must read. As always John captures the readers heart and reveals the wonderfully good heart of God in a profound and beatiful way.
"Breathtaking and soul searching"
I love the books that have the author reading them. Who better to read it the way it was intended? This book, like all Eldredge books, challenged my faith. John always calls me to awaken to spiritual warfare and my own heart. I would highly recommend Moving Mountains to antler looking to go deeper in their prayer life!
"OMGosh, live this"
Totally freeing. clarity is not breakthrough. breakthrough cones with action. make this your guide book and take massive action.
Super book! Time went by fast! Will listen to it many times. The things I had forgotten renewed! The insight discovered valuable!
Like all of John's books, this one is deep, refreshing, challenging, & thought provoking. John's own reading is as inspiring as his conferences.
Outstanding... Went to use it for a Bible study. So much outstanding information. A favorite!
This was a great book that will help empower your prayer life. The author is human and that shows in a couple of areas but that is ok as it helps confirm the truths of God

This book exceeded expectations. Realistic emphasis "it's how things work" applies to prayer too. Empowering!
