City on Our Knees (Book Review)

 

City on Our Knees

Amazing, beautiful things happen when people have the courage to live, work, and pray in the spirit of unity and peace. Often, though, to make these amazing things happen, we have to step out of our comfort zone and into a world we find uncomfortable or intimidating. Sometimes that world is physical; other times it can be emotional, relational, or spiritual.

City on Our Knees shows this, encouraging you to take the first step. It offers stories of people who have stepped across lines. Lines of discrimination, persecution, doubt, prejudice, pride, bitterness, self-isolation, and despair. I pray and hope that you will be inspired to see how just one person, or one small group, can be a mechanism for change. 

God can use us right here. Right now. All we need is faith that He has our best in mind. And believe me—He does.

 My thoughts:

City on Our Knees is real life stories about ordinary people who embraced  the hand they’d been dealt in life, and forever changed the world around them.  If you’re tired of making excuses…it’s too hard, I’m too old, I’m too young, I’m too poor….read about these amazing people, who through the power of God impacted the world for His glory, not theirs!
