Publisher's Summary

There is powerful breakthrough awaiting people who pray desperate prayers. Using the prayer of Hannah as a model, Apostle John Eckhardt invites listeners to a life of prayer that consistently sees results. Through biblical teaching and practical application, this book takes listeners through the five key points of Hannah’s prayer that can help them remain steadfast in prayer.

  • Getting desperate for God to deliver the answer to their prayers
  • Persevering despite torment, harassment, and a broken heart 
  • Seeking the presence of God
  • Making a vow to God and keeping it
  • Prophesying and watching new things spring forth

When all options are exhausted and everything we were holding on to has failed, God steps in. He hears our cries and remembers his promises to us. He never turns away the desperate. The dreams and visions God has placed in the hearts of his people will come to pass, when we learn to pray desperate prayers.

"Desperate Prayers for Desperate Times" is a magnificent book!

It came at the right time in my life! My life which is now in the "Fourth Quarter" which is the name of my last final (so I thought until this book came to me) company. I am aging, though still active. I started my life's career as a Special Forces soldier for 16 years, then chosen for PA school which turned into a great blessing. I had opened a "Family Practice Clinic in a rural setting in mid NC. During that time I became involved in a church where I returned to Jesus. I prayed with my patients frequently...they would even call me at home asking for prayer. After leaving and selling my clinic ( by then I had over 5000 patients) I truly missed my work, and the following two years were extremely difficult, emotionly. I then became involved again with Special Forces training of new applicants. I quit that when I turned 70. Thus the title "The Last Quarter". I would continue to do what I could expecting death not many more years away. I spent more time at shooting and Building various target stands for steel targets as well as participating in shooting competition. I used to write, but had to give that up. So, as I was about to start my last project to build my casket. Then In listened to this book. It seemed to be my "great awakening" . It is a tremendous Christian book that spoke directly to me. It not only encouraged me to stop digging my grave but also explained a new beginning for an old soldier! That was for me, but it is a new beginning for all christians. The best way I can explain the book is to tell others to listen to it and let the narrator bring the words of the Triune God straight to your heart and if you fail to become excited with what you hear, then I suggest you listen to it again! It may be head as as a job description. God bless you as you will think of many ways you can be a blessing to others. This is a lengthy review, but if you listen to this book you will likely write one longer.

A Piece of Excellence

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the LORD; ...... Jeremiah 29:12-14. This book did a lot of that for me. We must pray........Thank you John Eckhardt.

Excellent...Simply Excellent!!!

I can always count on John Eckhardt to deliver!!! For every mountain and every level there is a book of encouragement and instruction. This one was no different. Urging us to get back into or go deeper in prayer and to be expectant that God WILL answer!!!
