ANYTHING: The Prayer That Unlocked My God and My Soul
What if you told God you would do anything . . . and he took you up on it?
In the years since the initial release of Anything, God continued to stretch Jennie Allen and her faith because of the courageous prayer of surrender that she and her husband, Zac, prayed, “God, we will do anything. Anything.” Previously caught in the dizzying haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie went on to begin living out the adventure God had written for them-to include becoming the founder of IF: Gathering, an organization to gather, equip, and unleash the next generation to live out their purpose.
Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move you to stop chasing things that just make you feel happy and start living a surrendered life that matters.
This newly revised edition is updated throughout to include a new introduction and an in-depth Bible study component for those who have been wanting to lead a study on this topic.
Join Jennie on an adventure to discover your anything, those things that actually mean nothing until you know the God truly worth giving it all up for. And when you do, that will change everything.
Anything…not a complicated word.
An indication of our willingness.
But turn that word into our hearts cry to God, and it changes everything.
Jennie Allen shares her own story of ‘Anything’ and the amazing display of God that followed…
But the story doesn’t stop there, because she invites and encourages readers to go on their own personal ‘anything’ journey with God.
Anything may seem totally frightening to you…after all, we much prefer things that are safe, things that make us feel comfortable and happy, BUT if we cling to those things and never have an ‘anything’ moment with God, we will miss out on His best for our lives. We will most certainly look back over our life and regret that we did not give God our all.
Grab a copy of Anything and begin your own journey of surrender…sure, some people may call you reckless, crazy, weird- but I dare say, God calls you courageous.
Awesome 8 week Bible study included!

*** Special THANK YOU to the publisher & LitFuse for providing me with a review copy. My review is my own personal opinion***
The wilderness. Maybe you know it well.
The Israelites sure did. After all, they spent forty years wandering the desert. Victories were scarce. Progress was slow. They were free from Pharaoh but not free from fear. Saved but stuck.
Sounds a lot like midlife misery. Caught in a rut. Stalled out. Running on empty. Are you mired in the same?
You can name the day you became a Christian and escaped Egypt. But you can’t remember the last time you defeated a temptation or experienced an answered prayer. You’re fighting the same battles you fought the day you came to Christ. You’re out of Egypt, but Egypt’s not out of you.
Isn’t the Christian life supposed to be better than this?
Jesus offers abundant joy. Yet you live with oppressive grief. The epistles speak of grace. You shoulder guilt. You are more than a conqueror yet are commonly conquered by temptation or weaknesses.
But there’s good news. With God’s help you can close the gap between the person you are and the person you want to be. Like Joshua and the Israelites, you can move from a wilderness existence into a promised inheritance.
This is God’s vision for your life. You, at full throttle. You, as you were intended. You, as victor over the Jerichos and giants. You, minus the stumbles, hurts, and hate.
You and your Promised Land life.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
More than 120 million readers have found comfort in the writings of Max Lucado. He ministers at the Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he lives with his wife, Denalyn, and a sweet but misbehaving mutt, Andy.
I have always loved Max Lucado’s books…they challenge me, inspire me (most make me cry LoL).
Soooo I was really excited to get my hands on a copy of Glory Days. I love that this book focuses on Joshua.
We often disconnect ourselves from people in the Bible because we feel like we live in such a different world now and while so many things have changed, some have stayed the same.
Glory Days helps readers make that connection. It helped me remember that God desires His best for me right now.
Highly recommend this one!
