An adventure in prayer began 40 years ago. It traveled across the globe-from closets to prayer chairs, from the steps where Hitler shouted to the door where Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation. A journey that brought an adventurer to Gateway Church. Take the journey. Start the adventure. Adventures in Prayer: A 40-Day Journey by Pastor Mary Jo Pierce. The book is arranged with 40 inspiring stories from Pastor Mary Jo's life. Each vignette concludes with a section to guide the reader to think about Mary Jo's message, God's message, and the reader's response to God. It is an ideal resource for daily devotionals. A word from the author: I love prayer. People ask me why I love prayer so much. My answer is simple-it works!
