The author's passion for prayer is evident throughout this book, and it is inspiring. I especially like the focus on simple, ordinary, daily conversations with God--which makes praying seem doable for those of us caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. The four prayer tips in chapter four were especially helpful for this busy husband and working daddy of four.
The third section of the book hones-in on what readers can and should pray for. A strength of this section is that it expanded my view of prayer. It was an excellent refresher of how many important things there are to talk to God about.
Simple Prayer, is well documented. Informative and inspirational quotes on prayer are sprinkled throughout the book. The author does an excellent job of keeping things simple and showing how ordinary prayer can make an extraordinary impact. Highly recommended!
We can deepen our prayer life by using ordinary moments to pray with intention and focused energy. The author shares a personal growth plan that includes motivation, practice and prayer journaling to record how God works in our lives and to refresh our memory about the ways. She recommends including our daily interactions with God, prayer and sermon notes and quotes, life goals and an index. If we follow her outline, these journals could become genuine prayer books in themselves. The three prayer languages the author recommends are asking God, thanking God, and praying the Word – finding and using biblical passages that speak about our concern.
The sincerity of the author shines from every page. The tools she provides are not for the casual believer. They are for people who truly want to enhance their prayer life, connect with God and experience amazing results. The book has many good references.
I found the many illustrations helpful and relatable. If we want God to show up in our lives then we have to live expectantly. This doesn’t mean we’re waiting for miracles of biblical proportions to happen daily, but for his hand & graces to be evident in the normal moments of life.
Reading this book together with my wife has helped us both recommit to having healthy prayer lives. I believe this book is worth reading for anyone curious about prayer or trying to get back on the prayer wagon.
If I were to sum up Rachel Larkin's book, it would be with this Bible verse: "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you." (James 4:8) Relating her own path to the extraordinary, she has devised a doable guide to growing one's prayer life. Following it can result in experiential transformation.
I particularly appreciate that Rachel presents the "how" with clarity. Each section has "action steps," so you are not left to figure out what to do. She has even prayed that you will succeed in reaching the relationship with God that you seek. (He answers her prayers.)
I enjoyed this book. I believe it will assist in my prayer life, and that it will benefit yours as well.
I loved the example about...we see what we focus on (talking about Skoda advert.) ...focus on God!
As I am already on this journey "daily praying intentionally ", this book encouraged me that I am on the right track with focussing on God throughout the day.
I totally agree with the importance of Journaling as shared and shown in this book.
What a great book .....includes how to do it all! And so easy to read. Thanks heaps!
