5 Ways To Pray // A Book Review

Once in a while, a little resource lands in your lap that has the potential to greatly enrich your time with the Lord... and its particularly exciting when that resource happens to have been written by a lovely friend. We have had the privilege of getting to know Rachel in our small group over the past two years, and she has written two wonderfully helpful resources here, pouring her wisdom, thoroughness and rich bible knowledge into them!

These two little books are little gems... so simple in their layout, easy to access and yet concentrated in their form. They have focussed my prayer times and helped me to think carefully about what exactly I am praying for for friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and my wider church family. They helpfully give direction and provide space for you to pray for specific people...

A baby, a spouse, a neighbour, a colleague, a loved one on their birthday... Rachel really has thought of everyone, and even inspired me to pray for people I wouldn't normally think of... and I think that's what is most exciting about these books. They take prayer, which so many of us find tricky at times, and make it look so simple, and so inviting... these books have inspired me to want to pray more...

Rachel has worked hard to produce books which are God-focussed and biblically founded. Each of the "5 things" begins with a bible verse... what better way to pray than to be inspired straight from the Word of God?

I genuinely cannot recommend these books highly enough... if you're looking for something to aid and enrich your quiet times... if you find it hard to stay focussed in prayer, or know what to pray for, or simply need something to help you to be motivated to pray, then look no further...

"5 Things to Pray for the People You Love" and "5 Things to pray for Your Church" are available to purchase on the Good Book Company Website, or on Amazon for £2.99 each (although the Good Book Company are currently selling them for £2.69!)... enjoy!
