God On Mute: Unanswered Prayer

At the apex of the 24-7 prayer movement that has swept through the world and inspired a new generation of seekers, Pete Greig boldly steps into the dark world of unanswered prayer in “God on Mute: Engaging the Silence of Unanswered Prayer”. His unique perspective of being the recipient of constant worldwide reports of God’s answers to worldwide prayer and yet living through his wife’s own ongoing, violent epileptic responses from brain surgery causes a crisis of faith that forces him to search for truth and trust amidst the bombardment of hopelessness.

The book is actually two books in one. Greig first explores the numerous reasons listed throughout the Word why prayers are hindered or rendered useless. It is a primer on holiness and focus. Using Holy Week as foundation, the second part of the book explores the similarities between Christ’s Passion and our lives. Though we know there will be a glorious Resurrection Sunday, the silence of Holy Saturday is the reality that most people live in now. Yet, instead of misery, Greig encourages us to embrace this season with wonderful examples and reminders of the faithfulness of Almighty.

It’s not an easy read, but the discipline of confronting the subject of unanswered prayer is a refreshing, welcome support to stand, when you’ve done all to stand.
