I received my hardcopy of "Handbook to Prayer" today. However, I've been using this resource in a Bible software program for a few years. With the only exception of Peter Lord's "2959 Prayer Plan", this book has been the most influential and beneficial tool I've used to assist my prayer life.

The heart of this book is the 90 day prayer guide. The author recognizes that Christians desire to spend time in God's Word and time in prayer but have trouble bringing the two together. He further realizes that the most powerful praying is done when we are using God's Word to inform our prayers. After all, "God's Word won't return to Him void", right?

Therefore, the author came up with a tool that guides the reader's prayer time. Each day, for 90 days, he personalizes at least one passage of Scripture under each of the following prayer headings:
1) Adoration,
2) Confession,
3) Renewal,
4) Petition,
5) Intercession,
6) Affirmation,
7) Thanksgiving, and
8) Closing Prayer.
You can read the verses, meditate on them, and then pray them to the Lord.

Just a few of the benefits I've gained from this tool are:
My prayers are balanced (I'm not just offering up petitions; i.e. "me, me, me")
It enables me to successfully combine Bible intake with prayer.
I have also enjoyed those occasions when the verses for that day were exactly what I needed.
Most certainly, this tool does not replace my regular Bible intake. I try to read the entirety of Scripture each year. Yet, this tool comes alongside my regular Bible intake to help me enjoy a deeper fellowship with the God who wrote the Bible.

This guide to prayer using scripture will deepen your prayer life. Boa's Conformed to His Image was a vehicle for spiritual growth and this work will also add depth to your practice of seeking the Lord in prayer. Praying the scriptures helps transform our idea of prayer into what the Lord intends prayer to be--a focus on Him and His purposes. It takes more time than many of us currently devote to prayer, but there are many steps/aspects of the guide that can be used alone without following the entire guide for one day all at one time. Very highly recommended.

My form factor of this book is the Kindle. The content is quite good. Please take note however, the Kindle version of this book is NOT hyperlinked. You must manually enter bookmarks for each of the major devisions in the book otherwise you will spend the major part of a day scrolling to get to the part of the book you want to view or review. That's the reason I only gave this book 4 stars. The contents page of the Kindle version is NOT hyperlinked.

This book was recommended by my pastor, and I do not for one moment regret the 9.99 I paid for it on Kindle Fire. I have been using this method of praying using Holy Scripture now for 11 days, and I can assure you that my prayer life is on fire (no pun intended) and the use of scripture has made the Word of God so much clearer in context.

I am not real good at memorization, and I can't always remember Scripture verses. But this handbook of prayer puts it right there in front of you. It isn't even awkward, nor does it feel like praying by rote, to have my Kindle in front of me while I pray. There are places after every stage of prayer to add your own words. It just makes it more fulfilling to give back to God the words He so lovingly gave to us.

It is impossible to find any better way of praying than praying God's word back to Him.

He never says anything in His Word that He does not fulfill.

He has said that His Word never returns to Him void.

And do not forget that Jesus is the Word made flesh.
