This is one of my favorite devotional books. I have read the book many times, and each reading challenges me to an even greater focus on my prayer life. I wasn't aware of the study guide until recently, but after having looked through it I think the guided questions at the end of each chapter are a wonderful addition to an already excellent book.

I found this book to be very helpful and straight to the point. What I found encouraging was many of the principles taught and scriptures used have been the very things that the Lord has been impressing on me over the last few years. Mr. Burr has put these ideas and truths into book form. The last two years have been spent in France at language school (preparing to serve as a missionary in Togo West Africa) and honestly I have come through the time here rather beaten, bruised and concerned that I am the right man for the job. I know that the thing I need the most is intimacy with my Lord. As He has said, "Apart from Me you can do nothing."

My wife was interested in this book. When she was finished, I read it. This book revolutionized my prayer life.

Burr emphasizes the importance of a daily prayer time. He considers it his daily briefing and encourages it being the first thing in the day. After giving recommendations on how to establish this set time, he looks at various types of prayer -- Petition, Praise, Thanksgiving, and Confession. In conclusion he focuses on the need for repentance and looks at two hindrances to prayer: Lost "first love" and Pride.

Each chapter closes with two sets of questions. The first is for personal reflection, the second for group discussion. He also includes as appendices a prayer covenant and a three month guide to praying Scripture.

This book is already having an affect on my life. I'm already putting some of the principles to work like praying first thing each day and praying through Scripture.

I am using the things I learned in this book every day. I especially like the Scripture praying outline in the appendix. I highly recommend this book.
