What if prayer was more than just a means to an end? What if was about encountering a living, vibrant, hopeful God?
Our prayer lives are meant to be more than just an afterthought or a boring repetitious discipline that we have to fulfill; they should be dynamic encounters that lead us into the knowledge of God. But prayer is often the last thing on someone’s to-do list. Most of us find that the reason we do not pray is because we find it un-enjoyable. Would you marry a person you found boring? Would you pursue friendship with someone who does not respond to your conversation? Our prayer lives are often like this. Others find it difficult to pray because they do not know what to say. They have a list of prayer requests that constitute their prayer time and once it is done, they are quick to run off to something else.
But prayer should be as simple as a conversation with a friend. If we are to have this type of prayer life, we are going to need some new tools to make this a reality.
Psalm 100.4 tells us to, “enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.”
Prayer is a supposed to be the language of love and when you focus on the attributes of God, it can be. When you discover who God is, you begin to fall in love with Him. Love is the central theme that should fuel all our prayers. We need to come to the place of prayer with adoration and proclamation. This type of prayer is more than just learning about about God, it is a journey of falling in love with Him.
Adoration and Proclamation prayer is a tool that you can use to enhance your prayer life on a day-to-day basis. It takes us out of the ‘list of prayer requests’ type of prayer and gives us a way to love Jesus and discover who He is in the process.
When we learn how to adore the Lord, we are saturated in His presence and filled with the word of the Lord. Suddenly all circumstances are seen through the perspective of who God is. The God that sees and cares answers our list of prayer requests. We discover the God who leads us, is a shepherd, a provider, a healer, faithful, trustworthy, a king, a friend…
We need to return to the place of prayer and it must become the central reality that we build our lives upon. Adoration and Proclamation prayers are the gateway to this kind enjoyable, transformative, love prayer. It is the way to an unshakeable hope in God. It is the place we discover a deep relationship with Jesus and when we experience it, we find the truth of Psalm 34.3 – “O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.”

“Adoration prayer has been the single most impactful thing that has exploded my relationship with The Lord. We are all taught the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. We memorize the verse but I never had the practical tools to love God the way adoration has taught me. It was the breakthrough I needed and I believe our world needs.”
Joel Gerdis – Worship Leader, Louisville KY
“No single teaching has had a greater impact on my walk with God. The tools I have learned through adoration and proclamation prayer have helped me experience God in new and dynamic ways. I have learned how to know God intimately and use spiritual weapons. I am so grateful for Ben and this book.”

“Ben’s book is the perfect companion to his adoration CDs and workshop. It’s changed my prayer life and thus my relationship with The Lord. We are in a spiritual war over the knowledge of God and this book is a weapon in our arsenal.” – Bryce Raley
“Between Ben’s workshop and this book I have learned how to seek, understand and appreciate the true character of God by adoring Him and focusing on His goodness, power, and love. This type of prayer allows me rise above the craziness of this world and gain true perspective so that I can walk in step with my Lord and into our Father’s plan.” – Jay Stewart
