I was reminded again of the great truth that God truly does delight in the prayers of His children.
David Robins
This little book provides excellent guidance on how to pray based on the Word of God by providing real life situations as experienced by the author.

We are planning to take a whole organization through 15 weeks of seasonal prayer using this book for 15 of the 21 prayers Dave mentions.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Reader from Washington, DC VINE VOICE on August 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
I began this book without high expectations. I had found an earlier book by Rev. Earle, "21 Reasons Bad Things Happen to Good People" to be unexpectedly helpful, so I thought I would try this book.

Unlike Rev. Earley I'm not a fundamentalist Christian, so I was uncertain how much I would get out of the book. I found it to be very interesting. I had not previously thought of examining the differences between various types of prayer -- which ones were more appropriate for various types of circumstances. Nor had I thought about the best ways to address God in each situation. Rev. Earley has interesting things to say about these topics.

I learned some useful ideas about prayer from this book. I am giving the book four stars because I found the previous book I read by him more personally engrossing, but people who like his other books will find this one worth purchasing.

Format: Paperback
Each chapter in Earley's book focuses on stories and prayers that show us the character of God: who He is, what He's like, what He cares about, how He works in the world. According to Earley, the prayers that are most effective are those calling out to God to do those things He already wants to do: Teach us to pray. Go with us. Give us wisdom. I found it refreshing and convincing.

But then I'm going through the book chapter by chapter with a small group, which makes it that much richer.

This book is not meant to break new ground. It's full of obvious, but significant statements like this: "When Moses went into the tent to meet God, God came into the tent to meet Moses. Moses understood something we must remember: God is willing, ready, and available to meet with us when we make time to meet with Him."

Reviewer Bill Mez's complaint this book should have done what it claims cannot be done - teach readers how to do magic? - seems quite unfair.

Format: Paperback
I'm surprised there is only one other review for this book. I love this little book. The author gathered 21 short, simple prayers from characters in the Bible and how God answered their prayers during a time of desparate need. Some of the stories are well known and others are more obscure. Examples are: the prayer of Eliezer, "Give me success"; the prayer of Jacob, "Bless me"; the prayer of Gideon, "Give me a sign"; the prayer of Hezekiah, "Deliver us"; the prayers of Nehemiah, "Grant me favor" and "Strengthen my hands"; the prayers of the disciples, "Increase our faith"' and the prayer of a desparate mother, "Lord, help me." The book contains aids to enhance your prayer life and suggestions for more effective prayer. It's well worth the cost of the book.

This little book provides excellent guidance on how to pray based on the Word of God by providing real life situations as experienced by the author. I use it for my daily devotions. It will make you think about praying with a purpose based on sound biblical exposition. I highly recommend it to anyone who desires to deepen their relationship with God.

This is an excellent devotional for both the young and the mature in faith. Dave exemplifies humility in his writings and never is shy about telling the reader what he or she needs to do in order to glorify God. Very practical.

A great book on prayer from scripture. You can pick any chapter to read from anytime. We are planning to take a whole organization through 15 weeks of seasonal prayer using this book for 15 of the 21 prayers Dave mentions. You can dig as deep as you want or go as light as you want. There are insights and nuggets in every chapter. A must read to help guide and deepen one 's prayer like. Can use individually or with groups.
Highly recommend it.
