Christianity Today Book of the Year Finalist.In the critically acclaimed prayer memoir from award-winning author Patricia Raybon, the Colorado essayist sets out to learn the secrets of mountain-moving prayer. But will her broken marriage, a dying husband, conflicts with an adult daughter and her determination to pray for her household lead to a healed family and a renewed faith? In the page-turning depths of I Told the Mountain to Move, Raybon wrestles with her upbringing in a strict, churchgoing family, her questioning about her childhood faith, and her determination to return fully to God in adulthood. This wonderfully written book reaches across racial, denominational, and cultural lines as Raybon discovers that prayer is a deliberate discipline that draws the prayer warrior into a life-changing relationship with a mountain-moving God.

From the Back Cover:

"The house was dark but also cold. I opened my eyes in the dimness and sat up straight, shivering. God was talking."

Award-winning writer Patricia Raybon was facing mountains that God alone could move. A strained marriage. Conflicts with two strong-willed daughters. And underneath it all, a shameful personal secret. But could this humbled Christian, far from her childhood faith, pray real prayers that led to lasting change? Patricia set out to learn the real way to pray. Pray so things healed. Pray so things stopped. Pray so things started. Pray so things changed.

The result is an inspiring account of a journey that shook Patricia's world and transformed her heart. The prayer lessons that Patricia shares will help you overcome the greatest obstacle to real, powerful prayer and draw you into deeper trust and intimacy with an inscrutable, yet loving, God.
