Book Spotlight: It Happens After Prayer

Author: H.B. Charles, Jr.

Vocation: Senior Pastor of the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida

Church Website:

I came to know of H.B. Charles, Jr. a little over 5 years ago when he came to preach during a minister’s institute that my church was hosting here in Dallas, TX. We would later connect via Twitter and at the Kingdom Agenda Pastors Summit (facilitated by Dr. Tony Evans). I have since been following his ministry there at Shiloh and online through his blog: For the past two years, Pastor Charles has been the guest preacher at our Spring Revival. Our church has been richly blessed by his faithfulness to biblical expository preaching.  If there is anything that H.B. is passionate about (in addition to Jesus, his family, and the Shiloh Church), it is preaching! He writes about it, reads about it, and teaches on it. He bleeds preaching! I have been encouraged and inspired by his passion and commitment to rightly dividing the Word of God.

Back Cover Description:

Life’s inevitable difficulties and disappointments can discourage us from praying, but our response should be to pray anyway and keep praying. Whatever our want or need, God invites us to come to Him with confidence, believing that He is able to answer – and He will answer.

We can pray for:

  • Forgiveness like David
  • Wisdom like Solomon
  • Healing like Hezekiah
  • A child like Hannah
  • Deliverance like Jonah
  • Mercy like the ten lepers
  • Salvation like the thief on the cross

But are you convinced that prayer works? Even when you don’t get the answers you want? In It Happens After Prayer, Pastor H.B. Charles, Jr. motivates and encourages us to respond to the challenges of life with prayer, to pray without ceasing, and to pray with great expectations.

Are you ready for a new level of earnest, passionate, God-sized prayers? Don’t let another day go by without praying and seeking the face of God, because it happens after prayer.


This book is one that I have prioritized on my reading list. I purchased my copy on Amazon, but I am sure it is also available for order wherever Christian books are sold. Be sure to get yours today.
