If you want to see God’s
Kingdom grow faster than ever, read this book!
Samuel Rodriguez

“You won’t be able to read this book and not feel an urgency to take your praying to another level and to tell someone about Jesus!”
Richard Blackaby, Experiencing God, The Ways of God



In By Name, Brian Alarid will equip and inspire you to pray for people and lead them to Jesus using the five lifestyle habits that Jesus modeled: pray, listen, eat, serve and share.

This book will help you love people like Jesus and impact your friends, family, neighbors, classmates and co-workers for eternity.
