After having radiation therapy for an inoperable brain tumor in 2000, my 24/7 headache is goneâ€¦but Jesus is with me. Iâ€™ve always felt there was a reason for what has happened to meâ€¦ I firmly believe I have been brought this far to read your book and be challenged by it. I could not put it down. At first I was convictedâ€¦ my prayer life had become stagnatedâ€¦then I was encouraged. There is something I can do for others. I can pray. May the Lord bless and shine his light upon you always.

Billie always writes from her soul but PRAYERSURGE is the very beating of her heart and her life walk with Jesus in prayer.

Your writing style is so appealing to me and is giving me a boldness about the Lordâ€¦what He means to meâ€¦ You clearly made me see that we are called to pray with a discipline and a diligence. I am also learning that God is calling each of usâ€¦ He is calling me to a new level of intimacy with Him. Thank you, Billie.

The overall view of your book is spiritual, calming, reassuring… Itâ€™s a prayer life builder it helps to reset a more solid foundation, reassuring us of Godâ€™s unconditional love… I pray that this book PRAYERSURGE be published in the millions, to be given or purchased by people all over the world so others may see the impact Godâ€™s Love can have if they will give themselves to Him in faith and prayer. These words can stir the soul… change a nation. May each person who reads this book, in years to come, be blessed by the author and may she continue to be inspired to share the Holy Word of God.

PRAYERSURGE is more than a surge; itâ€™s a TSUNAMI! The ministry of "one another" which Paul wrote about so often is "
praying for one another." It percolates through every page. How lavishly God blesses the reader with His words through you, Billie. Bless the Lord, Oh my soul!

Billie so effectively communicated her passion for relationship with the Father through prayer that she ignited a spark in me as I read PRAYERSURGE. Read this bookâ€¦begin an "electrically charged" relationship with the God of the universe through prayer. She helps you along with SURGING THOUGHTS and PRAYER FLOW at the end of each chapter. I really gained a new love for relational prayer.

I did not want the book to end. It is a mentor-piece for me. Billie has been obedient to Godâ€™s Call to write what He has placed on her heart and is exemplifying in her life. A dear friend and mentor, she has encouraged me to surge in prayer. Prayer is a lifeline from God to help us endure the highs, middles and lows of life. Praise God for prayer. Experienceâ€¦PRAYERSURGE in your life with God.

I have had the great privilege to worship, pray and fellowship with Billie and Roy regularly. When they pray, Godâ€™s presence is in the roomâ€¦by e-mail or in person. I am lifted to Godâ€¦In my journey of almost 65 years on planet earth, I have met one person I felt qualified to write a book on prayer and that person is my sister in Christ, Billie Cash. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow with God.

God expresses Himself through us. He calls us to pray for others. PRAYERSURGE will make you want to learn more about Godâ€™s Holy Word and to pray, pray, pray. Thank God someone prayed for me. As I mature in my faith, I want to have a heart like Billie, caring, sharing, praying, loving and listening. You will not want to miss the blessing you will receive from this book.

Looking out the window of my Vicksburg, Mississippi home, I watched the winds and rain of Hurricane Katrinaâ€™s outer bands bend and break trees, wash holes and gullies in the back slope of my yard finally extinguishing electricity. I sought to get my mind off the storm by praying and reading Billieâ€™s latest book, PRAYERSURGE. As I read my emotions were calmed, my mind reassured, and my spirit lifted by the message and challenge of the book. Billie so many times â€œheard the callâ€™ to pray for me and my family through my grand daughter Annaâ€™s rare genetic disorder. Billieâ€™s prayers were there encouraging us, undergirding, interceding, reminding us of Godâ€™s promises and they were answered with a successful liver transplant this year. She prayed me through the sudden death of my husband Dan, through my daughterâ€™s difficult and dangerous pregnancy and the birth of a premature son who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, through hip surgery. Billie writes as she lives in bursts of glorious energy. With her concise, almost poetic, style, she pulls us into this beautiful description of the work of prayer in a Christianâ€™s life. Her heart for God is revealed. Be careful as you read this is a short book but the message is large hear the call! Rise up in prayer! Love God! Love others! Be transformed! It is rich in real illustrations of prayer and in the real life direction of becoming a person of prayerâ€¦simple examples, simple sentences, simple lessons gleaned from Godâ€™s Word validated in a lifetime of applying those lessons, woven together for our use as we learn to liveâ€¦Billie lives a life of prayer, an overcoming life.

Wow! In the midst of our own difficult transition into life in east Africa, God has spoken to us through Billie Cashâ€™s PRAYERSURGE. We have been reminded of truths we once knew and challenged to grasp truths we had not yet embraced. The Spirit of God Himself has surged within us both to pray and believe. To pray for Godâ€™s promises to be accomplished in us, in others, and in this world, to believe that He will complete the good work He has begun.

Inspiringâ€¦practical. PRAYERSURGE ushers me into the holy place. Prayer needs to become more than it is in my life. God has pulled back the veil for me. This book has made me search deep within myselfâ€¦ Billie pursues the prayer life that Jesus had while on earth. It was His lifeline. It is hers. May it become mine.

Billie Cashâ€™s book, PRAYERSURGE, reminds readers of the importance, the power and the purpose of lifting our hearts to God in prayer. Drawing on the analogy of ocean waves surging onto the shore, Cash encourages readers in her story-like writing style to let our requests swell to God Almighty, the One who created us and loves us.

Billie Cashâ€™s unique writing style breathes life into the key principles of prayer, which need to be learned by those who desire to pray with power. She unfolds her own journey to â€œpowersurgeâ€? prayer, but also clearly and simply sets the pattern for readers who want to grow in skill using this powerful spiritual weapon. Billie tells of real prayer experiences revealing the struggle we encounter when we pray fervent, persistent prayers resulting in Godâ€™s amazing answers. The powerful chapter on brokenness should be read by every Christian for she emphasizes that real prayer must be motivated by love. When it is, we experience the Glory of God. The impact of a loving â€œprayersurgeâ€? group who comes together in belief and prays can affect the destiny of nations. All who read PRAYERSURGE will be challenged to give their lives to the magnificent ministry of prayer.
