In New Book, National Bestselling Author Daniel Whyte III Shares the Difference Between Distraction and Divine Appointment in the Christian Life

Have you ever experienced interruption in prayer? If so, you have probably wondered if that interruption was a distraction to be ignored or a divine appointment from God that you needed to fulfill. It can be difficult to determine how we ought to deal with distractions because some are just that—distractions, while others are opportunities for ministry. In his new book, Opportunities for Ministry On the Pathway of Prayer, national bestselling author Daniel Whyte III helps readers determine the difference between the two.

“In this book,” Whyte says, “we take a look at some of Jesus’ earliest disciples—Peter, John, Paul, Luke, and Lydia—who each experienced opportunities for ministry, distractions, and diversions on the pathway of prayer. What we will learn is:

  • How to be open to the Holy Spirit and recognize opportunities to ministry.
  • How to determine and deal with those things that are truly distractions in prayer.
  • How to adapt to an unconventional environment that may not be conducive to prayer, and pray anyhow.

“We live in a world that is filled with chaos and distractions. Knowing how to manage these distractions, when to see them as opportunities for ministry and give them our time, and when to continue on the pathway of prayer is essential to a successful Christian walk. This book shows you how to navigate those choices.”

Opportunities for Ministry On the Pathway of Prayer is available on Amazon Kindle for $2.99.
