I thoroughly believe in the power of prayer and take the opportunity to read books on the subject. Therefore, I am going to share a great book on prayer that I just finished, Praying God’s Word for Your Life.
Kathi Lapp has divided the book into two parts. The first is preparing for prayer. This section lays the groundwork for the reader as well as helping equip the reader to have their quiet time and understand the basics of prayer. The second part, which is 14 chapters long, are actual prayers for your life. The wonderful thing about how this section of the book is set up is that you can decide whether to read them in order or go to the chapter that speaks directly to what you are currently facing.
In each chapter Kathi gives a wonderful lead in to the specific area of prayer. This is followed by scriptures passages and prayers with each passage. You can use the prayers as they are written to begin with until you become more comfortable with praying the Word of God. Each chapter then ends with practical steps you can take.
Praying God’s Word for Your Life is a wonderful resource and should be in every Christians “toolbox”.
