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.
