In Lead with Prayer, Ryan, Cameron, and Peter survey the private prayer lives of well-respected leaders across the boundaries of the church, nonprofit, and business worlds, which in and of itself is worth the read. You will walk away as I did: convicted, inspired, instructed, and encouraged—to pray.‍

So often the pace of life, weighty decisions, and tired state of our souls distract us from living as if prayer matters. This book not only reminded me afresh that it is indeed true that prayer matters--it gave me a guide for moving forward in reclaiming prayer as the one non-negotiable in my life.

John Ortberg

One of the best leaders I know said his life was changed by a single thought: God does not want more prayerless striving from me. Here is wise, deep, and practical wisdom for leaders to work from a reality beyond themselves for results beyond their abilities. If you have ever asked, 'Lord, teach me to pray,' this may be your answer.

I’ve read countless leadership and prayer books, but Lead with Prayer is unique. Learning from praying leaders who’ve built thriving cultures of prayer is exactly what we need at this hour. I recommend you go through this book with every team you lead.

This book serves as a rallying cry for leaders of all kinds to shift their focus from self-reliance and achievement to a dynamic relationship with God. You can be known as a smart leader. You can be known as a visionary leader. But there’s nothing quite like being known as a praying leader.

Growing up I asked my father, “How can you pray for people when you don’t see change?” He answered, “God has asked me to pray; it is up to Him how He answers those prayers.”
Now as leaders of our own family, my husband and I have taken the mantle of prayer modeled by our parents and pray together each night. It is powerful!
This book will inspire leaders across the world to pray and God, who is Faithful, will pour out favor and blessing.

Not seeking God in prayer before making decisions is the most consistent mistake I see among faith-driven entrepreneurs and investors. Self-reliance is as costly today as it was in the days of the good kings of 2 Chronicles, and that’s why I’m so grateful that Ryan, Peter, and Cameron have written this book that’s not just timely but overdue.

These authors inspire, encourage, and challenge us while providing practical tools from both saints who have come before us and saints who live among us. This book has truly illuminated and accelerated my own prayer journey.

Nothing of eternal value happens unless we join God where He is working. Lead with Prayer will inspire and move you to cultivate an authentic culture of prayer. I can’t think of a more strategic discipline for all leaders to model and multiply.
