Brian's Story

When People Pray

In When People Pray, Brian Alarid takes us on the journey that led him to discover that everyone has a movement inside them, and prayer is the spark that ignites it. Small prayers, bold prayers, sun-stand-still-prayers, and impossible prayers have one thing in common. They all find their answers in Jesus, who changes everything, especially us. Drawing on God's Word, his personal experiences, and the stories of many others, Brian will inspire you to go deeper in prayer than you have ever gone before.
