Dear Mr. Price:
In America today the church desperately needs revival. Many Christians do not attend church regularly and many of those who do are Sunday morning Christians. In the past the secret to revival has been fervent prayer on the part of God's people. The Bible Prayer Fellowship has supported the prayer movement and has seen several wonderful instances of God's great blessings on churches and individuals that began to pray for revival effectively.

"If you want to experience the life changing power of God's presence through corporate prayer, then The Power of Praying is for you."
"The Power of Praying is written with passion, a burning desire God has given to Rev. Oliver W. Price to rekindle the fire of prayer in our homes and churches. I know God will use it to draw our hearts to His throne."
"The Power of Praying will encourage us to approach Christ in faith with the recognition that His presence is both personal and powerful. Here we are reminded that Christ is waiting to meet us at the throne of grace in prayer. Answers are to be expected!"
"Rev. Oliver W. Price has dealt with the greatest need in the church today in a thoroughly biblical manner...I commend The Power of Praying to all those desiring to be men and women of prayer...You will discover the greatest adventure known to man--praying with the presence of the God who created this universe."
"The Power of Praying Leader's Guide looks good to me. Undoubtedly as you use it in seminars you will receive feedback that will result in your polishing it, as is common with workbooks such as yours. There is nothing that I noticed that I would urge you to modify now.
As I mentioned, my students who participated in your seminar felt that it was very profitable to them. Several of them mentioned that they appreciated your sharing your personal struggles with prayer."
"Much has been written on the subject of prayer. Rev. Oliver W. Price provides us with a needed focus on a neglected area of this vital doctrine. It includes practical insights and strategic benefits of corporate prayer, plus a challenge to elevate your prayer life from request-centered to Christ-centered."
"The way in which you have researched and laid out, Praying with Christ Obviously Present and Actively in Charge, is very insightful and intriguing. It gets to the heart of prayer! It communicates the heart of our Lord towards His longing to talk with us."
"Just a note to indicate that the Leader's Guide for Praying With Christ Obviously Present and Actively in Charge has been a blessing to both myself and the leaders of my church. We highly recommend the work to others."
"...the basic concept of Christ actively leading His church is necessary for the survival of the Church in America."
"We have found The Power of Praying Leader's Guide to be helpful in the following ways: It has allowed us to focus on the essence of continued revival in our church. It has helped us to go beyond the mystical emotional sense to practical application. It has given to me, as a pastor, a logical sequence in which this truth can be presented."
"In my personal library I have quite a number of excellent books on the subject of prayer. None of these has the clear focus that Rev. Oliver W. Price's study has - to strengthen the praying of believers who gather as a group to seek the Lord. Let's face it, praying can become routine, and we can easily use "vain repetition" with the same phrases and cliches. Oliver gives instruction that teaches a group of believers to pray expecting the present and listening Lord to do something!"
"I really appreciate your book Praying with Christ Obviously Present and Actively in Charge. We are considering using it in a Bible study group on Monday nights."
