Does trying to follow God’s call in your life leave you feeling directionally challenged? God rarely tells us where He’s taking us or exactly how to get there. Instead, like a compass, He points us in the general direction we are to go. In Directionally Challenged, trusted pastor Travis Collins helps Christians discern God’s compass for their lives. Collins offers help to Christians who have gotten sidetracked and encouragement for those whose priorities have been overturned and life’s callings set aside. In his warm and engaging way, Collins provides sound, biblical teaching on finding the courage, conviction, and character needed to discern and live God’s call.

Dangerous Prayer offers a strategy for fostering prayer and spirituality in mission that focuses on neighbourhood transformation and global needs using the Lord's Prayer as a radical blueprint. Sustainability in mission is not possible without prayer; vibrancy in prayer is not possible without mission. Christians on mission need a vibrant life of prayer in order to be effective yet to have a vibrant prayer life they need an outlet in mission. The Lord's Prayer offers a radical inspirational framework to help move Christians beyond praying just for themselves and to have their imaginations captured by the mission of God and concern for global needs. Jesus' words guide us to pray for God's Kingdom on earth, for restoration, for food for all who are hungry, for people to experience forgiveness and all that really is good news about Jesus. It is a dangerous prayer because of its counter-cultural and radical stance, and because it invites us to be, in part, the answer to our prayers. This book offers inspiring and practical approaches for unleashing the whole people of God for missional prayer and prayerful mission.

This six-week devotional Bible study experience includes twenty-minute weekday sessions; sixty-minute weekend sessions for deeper personal, mentor, or group study; and a five-minute weekend Scripture prayer, all to enrich your dialogue with God and interaction with Scripture.
