Anne Graham Lotz

About The Light of His Presence

The beloved Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham shares a rich treasury of her personal prayers to guide you into deeper, more intimate daily conversations with God.
 
Why is it that as soon as we bow our heads to pray, we start thinking of other things we need to do? How do we make time to pray in the middle of our busy lives? And how do we know what to say and how to say it? 
 
Like many of us, Anne Graham Lotz has struggled with prayer. Over the years, she discovered that writing out her prayers draws her into deeper, more intimate conversations with God. The Light of His Presence offers forty of these tender, honest prayers for real-life situations as an invitation to deepen your own prayer life through worship, confession, thanksgiving, and intercession. You’ll be encouraged to lean more fully into God’s promises through this power-packed devotional resource, which includes inspiring quotes from Christians throughout the ages and also has space to journal your own words to God.
 
As Anne writes, “My prayer for you . . . is that God will use my struggle with prayer to help you overcome yours. And that, as a result, you will be drawn nearer to the heart of God.”

THE LIGHT OF HIS PRESENCE
By Anne Graham Lotz
A Multnomah Hardcover | On Sale 10/6/2020

“Prayer has been one of the greatest challenges of my Christian life,” writes bestselling author, speaker, and Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz. Some might find that a surprising statement coming from the daughter of Billy Graham.

Lotz has taken her struggle and transformed it into a beautiful series of intimate and heartfelt prayers in The Light of His Presence: Prayers to Draw You Near to the Heart of God (Multnomah, October 6, 2020).  

Over the years, Lotz discovered that writing out her prayers draws her into deeper, more intimate conversations with God. The Light of His Presence offers 40 of these tender, honest prayers for real-life situations as an invitation to deepen your own prayer life through worship, confession, thanksgiving, and intercession.

Lotz’s prayers touch on topics such as weariness, loneliness, holiness, worship, wisdom, persecution, revival, and more. “The purpose of prayer is not just to get answers. The purpose is to develop an intimate, personal relationship with the One who loves you, gave Himself for you, and longs for you to live in the light of His presence,” writes Lotz.

Her hope is that God will use her struggle with prayer to help readers overcome their own.  This giftable hardcover is not only a treasury of heart-felt conversations with God: it is rich in scripture and offers two appendixes, “The Believer’s Birthright” and

“Preparing Your Heart Through Confession,” to further enrich the reader’s prayer life. Space is included throughout the volume for readers to write their own prayers.
