From the Author
This book was written with you in mind. Too many people are wandering around wondering what their Christian life should be about. It is my belief that when you saturate your life with Bible study and prayer, the Lord will show you the purposes He has already ordained for you. Knowing 'His will' will bring joy, happiness, and purpose into your life. God bless.

This beautiful book focuses on both prayer journaling and Bible study. It would make a great resource for prayer groups and could serve as an amazing workbook for those who want to keep their prayer life alive between group meetings. It is also wonderful for those who prefer a more private and individualized approach to prayer.
I like that the author included some unique topics and readings not often found in prayer journals. This has gotten me to contemplate things I would normally not wonder about. Also, the powerful and lyrical word combinations have encouraged me to become creative in my journal responses. Topics differ widely, which really challenges me to attempt a deeper understanding of the meaning of those passages.
One of the greatest things about this book, compared to others on the market, is that the pages aren't dated. So even though there are 365 topics, I can reflect on them in ANY order and on ANY day ... skipping some days and completing multiple pages on others. Sometimes it's nice to just open the book at random and find a meaningful way to relate the passage to what is going on in my life.
Besides the fact that I think this book is fantastic for journaling, I also love the cover and think it is pretty enough to leave on a coffee table.
Prior to purchase I had the opportunity to review this book, Awaken Me: Growing Deeper in Bible Study and Prayer, from beginning to end.
I found the format to be to my liking as each page (each day's journal) is concise and consistent. And yet each covers a different biblical topic.
By leaving the date as a write-in I find I can journal at my own pace and not feel guilty for missing scheduled dates.
Each page contains a different title, scripture verse and bible reading for me to study and get into the Word.
But the rest is up to me. Each page uses a consistent format for me to write my responses under the headings:
Thoughts, Questions or Keywords
Notes, Reflections, Inspirations
I find this prayer journal to be convenient, easy to use, self paced yet comprehensive as the author has selected daily readings throughout both testaments of the bible.
For me prayer is a very personal endeavor. That is why I love the lines to write my prayer requests and thoughts. Writing it down helps me to feel the importance of my prayers and to have a record of who and what has been on my heart.
I have just purchased my updated copy of "Awaken Me: Growing Deeper in Bible" and am looking forward to receiving it. Being able to write the dates in myself is so helpful because I can start right away. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is hoping to make their prayer time more meaningful.
