    The purpose of this book is to suggest ways of finding the treasure in what we may consider an unlikely field--ourselves. Through many practical suggestions for heightened prayer, including Ignatian exercises and Jungian exploration, God of Surprises guides readers along the inner journey which reveals to us a God we may not have expected to find.

    Prayer moves the hand of God. A tool that I have used is “Prayer is Prayers that Rout demons and Break Curses.” by John Eckhardt. When we engage in prayer we move into spiritual warfare in the supernatural realm. Even worship of God is a spiritual warfare weapon. This book is full of God’s word to battle in prayer for yourself, for family. Boldness recognition Bravery Experience, of God Recognising People Confidence In God, Produces Boldness Christ With People On Earth Intelligence Spirituality Courage, In Facing Enemies Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them.

    May the God of Surprises delight you, inviting you to accept gifts not yet imagined. May the God of Transformation call you, opening you to continual renewal. May the God of Justice confront you, daring you to see the world through God’s eyes. May the God of Abundance affirm you, nudging you towards deeper trust. ‘God of Surprises is one of the great books of spiritual guidance. A lovely, wise and lucid book of deep humanity. Above all, it is a useful book – a book to be used by those who find it hard to forgive themselves: the stumblers and agnostics who hardly dare believe that God is within them.’.

Rather, I'm speaking also of big surprises, the sort that come as if out of nowhere, the surprises that stun us and threaten to turn our lives around, or even to overturn them altogether.
