The author also includes extra resources for our devotional times. And talks about what to do on a prayer retreat.
This is one of the best books I've read on prayer, that is written in everyday language I have read in a while. I'd recommend it to anyone needing a fresh insight on prayer.
Below are a few of many quotes I highlighted:
"What you need to realize is that your prayers at the kitchen sink are every bit as effective as your prayers in the prayer closet."
"Remember, the measure of our spirituality is not in the type of service we offer, but in our love for Him and for those around us."
"By God's grace, the land of my need has become the land of my anointing."
"There is no insignificant job in the Kingdom of God."
Who was the person that taught you how to pray as a child? Wasn’t it your mother? Of course, it was. But going back to her as an adult might prove to be somewhat of an embarrassment; it’s an embarrassment you probably don’t want to face, because how could you have forgotten an important thing like this.
The truth be told, I can imagine that with the harried many of us have had to deal with, some things got pushed further and further BACK on the gas burners until they’ve become so hard to reach, we’ve forgotten about them.
In her book, the author, Deborah Perkins, wants her readers to understand that their predicament of now not knowing how to prayer as adults is not unique by any means. And although she might basically accept this situation, she wants to transform those afflicted by it to be able to return to the flock and to start praying anew.
Her tactics in making this a reality is to guide her readers to this end by combining her own life experiences with those that the bible communicates through its pages. Ms. Perkins knows her readers will have questions as they learn how to prayer again, basic questions like: How do I know God is listening to my prayers and if/when he’s answering me?
How do I find the time to pray with the hectic daily schedule I’ve got each day? Questions she tries to deal with the pages of this book.
They say that patience is a virtue which through time will make things happen, like being able to prayer again with the passion you once had. So, for having given her readers this guide so they can once again become an active, committed prayer soldier, I’ve given this book 5 STARS.
This book will be an encouraging treasure map of guidance to find and draw near to our Beloved.
