Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Williams (Prayers of My Heart) transforms the firefighter's motto of "stop, drop and roll" to "stop, drop, and pray" as she summons Christian women to a deeper relationship with Christ. She says that if a woman wants to break out of spiritual apathy, she must first recognize the danger and stop, then drop to her knees and pray. The gimmicks don't stop there: Williams unpacks the word PRAY into an acronym for four steps of prayer itself. Believers should Praise God, Repent and confess sins, Ask for help and Yield to God's will. The majority of Williams's text is a meatier-than-expected A to Z devotional emphasizing the myriad qualities of God. Each alphabetical entry includes a scripture verse, a brief prayer of summation, an in-depth yet succinct study of the specific attribute, a meditation moment and an invitation to interact in journal form. Williams looks at God as a vine dresser, nourishing the soul; as an empowerer who strengthens believers; and as an equitable judge. Leaders' guide materials delve into deeper questions, and at-a-glance A to Z reference charts add value. Despite some superficial attention-grabbing devices in the early pages, this is a satisfactory devotional primer. (Jan. 3)

From the Publisher

With an enthusiastic invitation to use her book as an interactive guide to deepen the reader's prayer, Debbie Williams sets out to redirect the focus from us to God, who is divine, and who can accomplish all things. Using the acronym PRAY for Praise, Repent, Ask, and Yield, she encourages a study of God's attributes with an A-Z exploration which ranges from Almighty to Zealous God. Each chapter reveals more of who God is and how He alone is capable to meet our every need as we recognize who He truly is.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Christian Book Previews on February 13, 2006
Format: Paperback
Debbie Williams inspires her readers to focus on the attributes of God from A to Z in Pray With Purpose, Live With Passion. For example, "A" represents Almighty from Psalm 91:1, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty," demonstrating that when we are weak, our power and strength is in the Lord. But Williams doesn't stop there. She recounts God's revelation of His praiseworthy characteristics in the Bible, encourages personal growth in that area, and provides examples of how to pray with understanding of the attribute.

Consisting of two main sections, Pray With Purpose delves into an elegant method for God-honoring prayer, using the acronym P-R-A-Y in part one, and contains A to Z mini-chapters in part two. The attribute chapters begin with a Scripture and prayer, and follow with William's study of it, a meditation moment, and a prayer action to take. As such, the book can be used easily as a devotional guide to prayer.

It's refreshing to read about giving honor and submitting to our Lord as a means of fulfillment, as opposed to teaching that strives after what we can get from Him. After reading many books on prayer, this book is not an academic look at prayer, instead it provides a practical basis for deepening one's prayer life, and ultimately living passionately for Him.

If you are looking for biblically sound ideas to spark your prayer life, but not rote prayers for reciting, Pray With Purpose, Live With Passion will be a valuable addition to your library. - Anne Walker, Christian Book Previews.com

We purchased this book for a study-prayer group and seems to be just what we wanted. Talks "to" you, not "at" you. It holds your interest and leads to great discussions.

PRAY WITH PURPOSE, LIVE WITH PASSION: HOW PRAISING GOD A TO Z WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE exceeded my expectations. I checked this book out of the library, then got sidetracked from reading it, then raced to read it (in a day) before it was due, and now see I need to buy my own copy, it is that good.

Author Debbie Williams frames this devotional book in thirty-one chapters, twenty-six of which cover a wide span of attributes of God, one for each letter of our English alphabet, from the Almighty to Zealous God. She writes as a mature, tried Christian, one whose own personal walk with God is deep and rich. This comes through in the humble style in which the book is written, and I felt when reading it that God was giving me a precious gift through the author, through the book, for He, Himself is honored, exalted, glorified on every page, which in turn encourages and guides the reader in deepening their own walk with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The author shows great reverence in her handling of the written Word of God, including by frequently referring to the Hebrew and Greek forms of words drawn from the translation she uses (primarily the New American Standard Bible). I would prefer that she had used the Authorized King James Version: with all its flaws, I have settled on it above all others, but not to the exclusion of all others.

My own study of the Bible is in its fourth decade now; nevertheless, the author has pulled quite a few nuggets out of scriptures that seem new to me. For example, in the chapter on "Light" (as an attribute of God), she goes to the scriptural account of Lazarus in John 11, and reminds that when Lazarus' family called for Jesus to come, His disciples reminded him that Judea was a place where people had tried to kill Jesus.
