A pocket-sized handbook on prayer
Exploring how the book of Acts represents prayer
Revitalising your prayer life
The book of Acts shows the importance of the link between the ministry of the Word and prayer. It teaches us that a distinguishing mark of a Christian and of a truly Biblical church is that they pray. A Call to Extraordinary Prayer is a call to pray with a passion, urgency, and hope.

With A Call to Extraordinary Prayer, Steve Nation takes us deeply into the book of Acts and reveals how ordinary people can pray extraordinarily. Peppered with historical references to John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, and many others, this book shows how you and I stand in continuity with countless Christians throughout the ages whose lives orbited around the privilege of prayer. If you want your prayer life informed, reformed, and transformed, read this book.
Christian George, Curator of the Spurgeon Library and Assistant Professor, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas City, Missouri
I warmly commend this book for it is biblical, readable and well-illustrated. The author draws attention to important prayer references in Acts in order to 'recall' Christians and churches to 'united prayer'. That is a welcome and much needed emphasis. The reason is that only the Lord can save and also revive his church in power. The relationship of Word and prayer must be restored in our lives and churches. Please heed this Call to Extraordinary Prayer.
Eryl Davies, Head of Research, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales
This book is both a rebuke and an inspiration. The author is disarmingly honest about our battle with prayerlessness and engagingly practical about how all Christians can have the privilege of participation in this crucial struggle.
Ann Benton, Author and family conference speaker, Guildford, England
A Call to Extraordinary Prayer is part study of prayer in Acts, and part rally cry to the church gathered to pray. Read it and you will be greatly encouraged and motivated to pray because we pray to our great God, good and powerful, and the sovereign overseer of our lives. Read it and you will most likely be rebuked as the spotlight is shone on your own prayer life. The church gathered is the church praying: is that true of us?
Jenny Salt, Dean of Students, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Sydney
This book is clear, warm-hearted and compelling. Steve has done us a real service in presenting this biblical call to prayer to us in a fresh and real way.
Gary Millar, Principal of Queensland Theological College, Brisbane
Any book that causes me to reflect deeply on whether I am a prayerfully dependent child of God and minister of Christ's church, and whether our church is truly a strong church, gets a big 'thumbs up' and 'thanks be to God!'. A Call to Extraordinary Prayer certainly did both those things for me. As a result of reading this book, I've been praying more. As a result of reading this book, I've led the church, and especially the leaders, to be praying more. For this, I and the church God has entrusted me to pastor, thank you.
Ben Ho, Pastor of St Lucia Evangelical Church, Brisbane
This is a book for those who are longing to see a powerful movement of God in the world, their community, their church, and their own heart. It inspires a sense of awe and excitement about what God might be pleased to do when his people seek him in earnest prayer.
Mike McKinley, Senior Pastor, Sterling Baptist Church, Sterling, Virginia
