ENUMCLAW, Wash., June 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- Tech support at any wireless phone company will tell you that the preferred set-up option to receive text messages is "Always On" rather than "When Needed." Pastor Robert R. Cushman has found that our communication with God should be "Always On" too. In his new book, "What If You Pray? Experiencing the Reality of Prayer," Pastor Cushman illustrates the crucial nature of this personal communion with God and practical suggestions regarding how to go about doing it.
From the ordinary—standing in line at Home Depot, to the extraordinary—a physical healing directly linked to a specific prayer, the illustrations of continual communication with God in "What If You Pray?" are life-changing. Simple questions of prayer posture, tone, and wording are answered. The more complex prayer attitudes of joy, anger, sorrow, fear, and appreciation are addressed as well. Over seventy examples of personal and corporate prayers are included about topics as diverse as authenticity in worship, the search for employment, and remembering the terrorist attacks of September 11. Pastor Cushman also dares the reader to commit to the challenging and meaningful two-word prayers, use me, search me, stretch me, and lead me.
A senior pastor for over nineteen years, Robert Cushman speaks to the mature Christian and new believer alike. He says, "The God who loves us more than we can imagine is willing to pour out blessing on our lives—but it begins with a relationship. If we're willing to listen, God will speak." This relationship between God and man comes through continual communication; through prayer. "What If You Pray?" explains this "Always On" relationship in a down-to-earth manner with sound, biblical doctrine to back it up.
In 1986 Robert Cushman was licensed as a Christian and Missionary Alliance pastor, and became Minister of Christian Education and, in 1990, Senior Pastor, of Princeton Alliance Church. In 2006, he became Lead Pastor of Journey 2L2. Pastor Cushman lives in the Princeton, New Jersey area with his wife and three children. An Eagle Scout, Pastor Cushman's hobbies include camping and wooden boat restoration. Pastor Cushman was a contributing editor for two books, "The Church at the Crossroads" and "From Seed to Harvest" published by Ministry Press and author of the forthcoming "Beyond These Walls."
