This is the best book on prayer, that I've read. I will confess, even after reading this book, I still don't understand all the mysteries of prayer, but I understand a lot more. This book tackles hard questions such as 'can we really change God's mind with prayer?', 'why does prayer seem not to work', 'how to pray', 'what is the purpose of prayer', etc. It gives concrete steps on how to develope a praying life and is heartily, biblically, referenced.

This book isn't just a book. It's a 3-month journey through what prayer is. Jennifer walks you through the deep truths about prayer so that you will know them AND apply them. It also brings out the freshest and truest views on what prayer really is. You will not leave this book unchanged.
P.S. And I live with her oldest son. He's tall.

This is a study that I refer to constantly! I have given it to many people and the result is always the same....."this is one of the most awesome studies I have ever done....."! I bought it for my 4 sisters and mother and we started it together at Christmas, which has resulted in several group Bible Studies and a weekend seminar on Prayer!

Format: Paperback
This 13-week study goes back to the biblical basics of prayer, cleaning out myths about prayer to rev up a powerful, ongoing connection to God that can invigorate every aspect of a Christian's life. The author tackles the complex theological questions: If God is sovereign, why pray? If prayer is not a way to change God's mind, what is it? It's a way, she illustrates, for God to send His power and provision into the world through His people. The study takes a detailed look at prayer's purpose, process, promise, and practice.

This study is definitely ranked in the top 5 bible studies I have read this year. Jennifer Kennedy Dean has changed the way I approach prayer. She is not afraid to ask the difficult questions and she gives biblically based answers that are easy to follow. I have been a Christian since 3rd grade and have grown up in the church all my life, but this book helped me begin from square one and led me deeper into a relationship with Christ. I learned new truths that helped me in my prayer life. This is wonderful study to do alone or with a group. I highly recommend this study.

Format: Paperback
I studied Live A Praying Life with a small group years ago. I review the study at least once a year with a partner or small group. It serves to continually encourage and remind me of the awesome truths the Live A Praying Life study contains. I have given the book as a gift to many people. Without exception every one of them has thanked me for introducing them to this life-changing study. Jennifer's workbook is so well done that it will forever change your understanding of prayer. She puts powerful concepts into ordinary, everyday language that is true to God's word, yet totally relates to today's Christian. This is an in-depth study of scripture, but it easily fits into the busy lifestyle we all engage in today. I can't recommend Live A Praying Life enough. Be sure to order more than one copy because you will immediately want to include someone else in your journey.

This study is amazing. The author is very skilled in helping the student understand God's sovereignty and our free will and how it all relates to our prayer life. The overall message of the study is that prayer is not the words we say between "Dear Lord" and "Amen". Instead, prayer is a relationship that permeates who we are, what we think and what we do.

It is a good book to help you better understand how to change your prayer life and if you don't have a regular prayer life, it will help you develop one.
