RESOURCE: 4 Books for Youth Prayer

The passion in the prayer movement is among the young generations. Here are four resources that may help you understand how they connect in prayer . . .

40-Day Revolution : A Strategy to Impact Your World for Christ
by Richard Mull
For teens—it's more than just a devotional; it's a strategy for change!
Thousands of teens across the country have accepted the 40-Day Revolution challenge, and they have witnessed incredible results. Can you imagine starting a prayer meeting with just two people that turns into a daily prayer time with over a hundred people—in just one week? Or your principal breaking down in tears and asking you for prayer?

Youth Ministry on Your Knees
Mentoring and Mobilizing Young People to Pray
by Mike Higgs
Nationally-recognized youth ministry consultant Mike Higgs shares a wealth
of practical and proven youth prayer ideas drawn from almost 30 years of experience. He encourages youth ministry workers with his analysis of the “rapidly growing number of youth who are fast becoming a runaway freight train within the prayer movement.”
