Watching or reading the news is an opportunity to give in to fear and despair--or to make a difference!

In Praying the News, concerned readers will find a practical guide to discovering the power, joy, and peace of partnering with God. Veteran news reporters Wendy Griffith and Craig von Buseck offer an unvarnished assessment of the media, as well as a comprehensive biblical plan for effective, world-changing prayer. They tell behind-the-scenes stories, not only of effective prayer for the news, but also of their prophetic intercession while reporting the news. Bad news is no match for the Good News of God's kingdom!

Praying the News meets a deeply felt need as we continue to be shaken by the events we see on the news.
