When Teens Pray: Powerful Stories of How God Works Ministry & Church Leadership Youth Ministry


11th August 2012 Christian Books 24 Comments

When Teens Pray richly demonstrates how God has intervened as teenagers have sought Him. Each chapter features true-life stories of the power of teens’ prayers as they intercede for their high schools, families, and friends; as they pray on the mission field; and as they deal with the struggles of adolescence. “God links” — dynamic prayer strategies supplied throughout the book — help the reader connect with God. These amazing stories demonstrate that teenagers don’t have to finish college or go to seminary for God to use them; they can impact their world and see their own lives changed as they pray — wherever they are!

    It is amazing to see what God can do for us, for those around us, and how He can really change us. This book is perfect for people of all ages. It is wonderful to see how God can work in the midst of so much sadness,pain, and chaos and give us hope. Prayer is so powerful…When we cry out to our Lord, He truly listens and the impossible is made possible. I recommed this book to everyone!

    This is a wonderful book. I discovered Joyce Meyer recently. I found this book to be helpful and encouraging. Changing your thoughts is very important for anyone who is self critical, discouraged, depressed, etc…It’s a choice and encouraging to know there is a choice instead of just listening to negative internal dialogue. God is the best choice. Love, Truth and Light…

    Every parent should give this to their teen, probably at the age of 12 or 13, but any age is okay. I gave it to my 18 yo and I am seeing some changes in her reaction and thinking of things. It is a steady process but it’s getting better.
    Get this for your teen and encourage them to read it!

    I have read the one for adults and it was powerful. How much better off our kids would be if they learned to think about what they are thinking about now instead of later.

    This book has been very inspirational to my teen and myself. We read it together and discuss how the power of prayer can influence any situation. Cheri Fuller has done a great job. Each chapter is a testimony of how teens have made a difference through prayer. Also, at the end of each chapter are God Links which give teens strategies and ideas on how to connect with God and pray more effectively. This is a great tool to read with your teen!

    Brought my disturbed son back to God!! Our son was raised in a Christian home. He went off to college happy and smiley and we were so proud. He turned into a monster and is sitting in jail now. I sent him this book and I see my old son again and he says he reads this book over and over along with his Bible.

    I listened to the adult version on audio tape, I really liked it. My friend let me borrow this book and I really liked it because I felt like I could relate to it more because I am 22, single and in college. The teen version of the book talks about parents, school and friends-the adult version talks about spouses, kids and work. =)

    I got the adult edition Battlefield of the Mind and it is awesome. So I was pleased to receive this book quickly and in great shape. I am so excited to see if my teenage daughter gets out of it what I have gotten out of the adult edition!

    Pros: Joyce Meyer uses stories from her own life to explain all the topics. It preaches on all temptations teens have trouble with. She adds humour and question & answer pages all through the book.

    Cons: Nothing I would find offensive or anything that puts down or corners the reader. It is rather short and spends only a brief amount of time explain on the various subjects.

    Note: Adults may also enjoy and find teachings in this book.

    This book really shows how great our God is. It shows how teens CAN change the world and be changed through prayers. It also shows all we need is dedicatoin, faith, and non-stop prayers. At first I thought the book only gathered a bunch of successful stories of how prayers work, and explains a little about each content. I wasn’t very satisfied. But later I tried the methods provided and suggested, I realized how real and helpful these praying guides CAN be. This book also encourages teens to get two or more reliable accompaniment praying partners. I am amazed of the unimaginable greatness of our God. It’s a must get for teens and adults who are associated with Christian teens.

    I gave a copy of this book to a friend for her teenaged daughter. They “fought” over who would get to read it first. Both of them really gained a lot of insight from the passages in the book.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with life and wants to be the best version of themselves.

    This is a great book to give to a young adult. Joyce Meyer breaks the information down so that teens can obtain a good understanding of the tools you need to be successful in your walk with Christ.

    Outstanding book. It was recently used at a Vacation Bible School church in Triangle, VA. The teenagers loved it so much that it was hard for them to put it down. Thanks.

    I bought this for my 11 year old twins. They both started reading it at the same time and have had to take turns every other day reading it so they dont have to wait even longer for one of them to finish the book before they can start. It has also made them more aware of how important prayer is in their lives!

    I received a teaching once that basicly said that when you get right down to it the Devil really only has two methods for tempting us: 1. Pressure 2. Pleasure. The Devil has three maxims which allows him to pull this off : 1. You (your own thoughts, bad habits, exc.) 2. The environment (Government, religious oppression, the systems of the world, exc.), and 3. Other people. Joyce Meyer’s “Battlefield Of The Mind” is mostly geared at the one maxim each of us have the most control over (You, yourself, your thoughts, and YOU).

    Joyce masterfully explains how that old Advesary The Devil works by waiting for the right moment (he`s not only a parasite but he`s also a predator). He waits to see where your weak, when your most vulnerable moment is, and he waits for that moment to attack. The Bible says “Resist the Devil and he will flee from you.” Perfect example is Luke chapter 6, The devil waits for Jesus to be 40 days and nights in the wilderness before he attacks. He didn’t come the first day to attack him when our Lord was at his strongest. Oh no, our advesary doesn’t play fair; he bides his time and waits for your weakest moment and attacks. Jesus resisted him and the devil fled from him (for awhile). Best thing is we have victory through our risen Lord this very day if we claim it. Joyce does a great job of illustrating this in this book(though I don’t know if she used the Luke example I used above or not).

    I really got a lot of insight from this book. For example, one of the concepts in the book (in my own words) was “what comes out of your mouth had to originate in your brain.” Sounds simple enough , but Joyce had a masterful way of describing every thought we commonly have today and referring it to biblical passages. About half way through the book I began to realize that the grumbling, griping, complaining, and various other human emotions and thoughts I have are not uncommon to our time. The children of Israel went through these same emotions and they are all recorded in Gods Word. I used to ponder how stupid these people must have been, but now I can see myself in them. It really was a humbling experience! Many of us make the same mistake over and over again and ask God, “Why don’t you do something?” Truth is God has always been willing to help us. We are the ones who get in God’s way by not bringing our thoughts into the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). Read this book and find out how you can change and train your mind to shut the door on The Devil and how to allow God to do what he’s always been willing to do. BLESS YOU!!!

    Hebrews 13:5b “for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

    P.S. This book comes in many formats. There’s the traditional version, teen version, devotional version, exc. It doesn’t matter which one you use. Just read one of them. You will be blessed.

    The contents of this book is definitely awesome and true. At first, this book caught a lot of my attention, and throughout the book, it has a lot of good ideas presented. I really don’t want to be critical, but as a teen, it’s a little bit less interesting. It has a lot of good key points to live with a healthy mind, but teens today may not be as interested in books than the internet. So if it were a little bit more desirable, I would love to buy another for my friends. It’s a great book, and it’ll be great for teens who love reading or are really committed to help themselves improve their living conditions.

    Then this is the book for you. It’s relevant. It’s powerful. It demonstrates through stories how God can impact a world today through the power of prayer. If you are a teen who wants to change your world. . . If you are a teen who has been asking God for a miracle in your school, your home, your own heart. . . If you want to experience God, then this is your book.

    As someone who ministers to teens across the nation, my heart was stirred by Cheri’s book. It wasn’t written for teens by an adult, but rather expressed by teens whose heart was to run after God with a passion. I would recommend this book to any teen, and to anyone who loves teens!
