Have you ever thought about what prayer smells like? In her short but so, so sweet e-book, The Sensational Scent of Prayer, Rachel explores the concept. The Bible states that our Heavenly Father experiences our prayers as sweet-smelling incense. Revelation 5:6 says he saves our prayers in golden bowls. Makes me think of the cinnamon pine cones my grocery store always sells around Christmas time. The aroma literally permeates the store, warming my heart and easing it into the Christmas spirit.

Oh, how I love the thought of my Lord, bending down over those golden bowls and breathing deep. He loves to hear from us...even when we're hurting.

In her book, Rachel takes us on a multi-sensory field trip into the life of Hannah, the mother of Samuel. In the midst of deep sadness and unceasing harassment from an adversary, Hannah poured out her pain and need to God. Prayer changed Hannah before God changed her circumstances.

That's the beautiful thing about prayer. When we pour out our pain, God is free to fill us up with His presence, His power, and His provision.

Rachel shares deep truth about my favorite topic in a sweet-next-door-neighbor style. Get the e-book free for your Kindle today and tomorrow. You'll have so much fun reading it that you won't even realize God is sneaking truth into your soul.

Ever sturuggle with prayer? I don't mean that you, as a follower of Christ, think it isn't important.

I mean things I sometimes ponder like, if God is gonna do what He is gonna do anyway--being that He is all omniscient and all--then why pray in the first place? Or why at times do I pray continually only to continually get no obvious response? Is He busy? Or ignoring me? Or is He just slow? Have I done something wrong so He is refusing to answer?

If you've too ever wondered about the mysteries of prayer, you are gonna LOVE the new ebook by blogger Rachel Wojnarowski.

Seriously love it. As it traces the story of Hannah and her anxoius heart, it propells you to ponder the hows and whys of communicating with God. Both inspiring and practical, this book will prompt you to both pray more and worry less. After all, God's got this.

The Sensational Scent of Prayer is a great little book, filled with inspiration from the story of Hannah in the Bible. I love how Rachel Wojnarowski weaves Hannah's prayers with scriptural teaching, along with examples from Rachel's own personal life, painting a picture of prayer that holds true for modern times. Written in a devotional style, it is a perfect book to read in one afternoon, as I did, or it could be spread out and "dug into" as a study over a longer period of time. I appreciated the insights into Hannah's two powerful prayers, and the truths that Rachel pulls from them both challenged and inspired me to pour out my own heart before the Lord. It made me realize how often I stop short of pressing in in prayer, and how much "more" my prayer life could be. This would make an excellent small group resource and I would love to see discussion/devotional questions at the end of each chapter to really facilitate it even further! I highly recommend this book to anyone who would love a gentle jumpstart to their prayer life.

The Sensational Scent of Prayer shares the story of Hannah, the mother of Samuel, as told in 1 Samuel 1-2. In ten short chapters, the book travels through Hannah's emotions and heart cries, from when she first begs God for a son to when she finally gives that son back to Him. The book is centered around her prayers in the temple, the place where sacrifices and the sweet scent of worship were offered to God.

Rachel really digs into the Biblical account, and you can tell she's spent some quality time studying it out. She weaves together the cultural background of Hannah's time with theological nuances that are relevant for us today. She mentions some of the original Hebrew words as she focuses on different aspects of Hannah's prayers. She draws parallels between Hannah's raw emotion -- and similar emotions we might experience in our lives today (agony, bitterness, grief).

The Sensational Scent of Prayer is more devotional than Andrew Murray's Lord, Teach Us to Pray, and a bit lighter reading than J. C. Ryle's A Call to Prayer. But it is focused on Scriptural truth, and it stirs the heart to a deeper quality of communication with God. And it would be a worthwhile companion to any personal Bible study on prayer.

The book is a short one, and easy to read quickly -- although you might benefit from taking it a chapter at a time, and really mulling over the truths shared in there, before moving ahead. I found myself highlighting a lot of points, and noting them down for future reference, and really benefited from reading it more slowly.

I would recommend The Sensational Scent of Prayer if you want something to recharge your prayer time. I would recommend it if you're desperate for peace in the midst of an emotionally trying situation. And I would recommend it as a continuation of your own Bible study about prayer.

The Sensational Scent of Prayer, by Rachel Wojnarowski is a short book filled with delicious visuals that soothed my spirit into restful prayer! It wet my appetite to open my Bible up to the heart string pulling story of a young woman named Hannah, in 1 Samuel. Rachel's book has been a favorite sidekick to my quiet time. She shares some real life short stories that gave me a view into her home, along with beautiful descriptions of this story from the Bible. I have a few favorite lines but if I was asked to pick just one it would be this...
"Individually, they each have a distinct scent; but collectively, the glorious smell of
prayers infused by unity can only be interpreted by the Father. The One who loves the sensational scent of prayer". We're so loved by God, and Rachel's writing encouraged that faith in me even more. ~ Blessings, Amy Alves
