For men and women of the diaspora, we know how charmed and protected our lives have been if we were gifted with a praying mother and a praying grandmother. But few ask the question, how do we pray?
How does one cope when our circumstances seem too insurmountable to handle on our own? When the bills are piling up, and our anxieties are high, and no one seems to answer the phone?
According to Ora Holloway, you must pray. Holloway, who is an ordained preacher, teacher, evangelist, author, psalmist, and prophetic intercessor, has experienced immeasurable loss, and prayed through every moment of it.
Prayer is especially paramount for those struggling with fertility and the loss of a child. Trying to conceive can be an impossible burden. Holloway gives us a look inside her years-long struggle with miscarriages and stillbirths, her thoughts of doubt, and how normal it was to question GOD’s favor. While being faithful enough to keep trying and praying through it. She has lived a life where her understanding did not waver. In “Desperate for a Miracle”, her trials and tribulations are not only told but also assist in how to make it through very difficult times.
Additionally, “Desperate for a Miracle” is necessary reading for those who want to have a more reverent understanding of the importance of prayer at length. Holloway provides a level of detail that only an experienced member of the Christian faith can provide. Which not only includes direct Bible references but personal experiences and life anecdotes that are relatable.
This book is for those of you who have had or have a praying grandma. Those who want to know how and when to pray. For those who still believe that miracles can happen. And most importantly, for those that need one.
