Pray A to Z by Amelia Rhodes


{More about Pray A to Z}

Pray A to Z: Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community (Worthy, November 2016)
Change the world one prayer at a time.
How would our community change if instead of absently saying, “I’ll pray for you,” we actually did pray–deeply, intensely, and purposefully?
Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Community will help you topically organize your prayer requests and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father.
With compassion and encouragement, Amelia Rhodes offers Bible verses and prayer prompts, organized topically for every letter of the alphabet. There are five topics per letter–three prayers of petition asking God to work in a certain area of need, and two more prayers of praise to reflect gratitude for God’s presence in the daily issues and relationships of life. Through petition and praise, your specific, focused communion with God will lighten your heart as you place the heaviness of those prayer requests where they belong–on His strong shoulders.
Whether you are praying for a friend’s adoption journey, a neighbor’s bankruptcy, or a family member’s cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.

My opinion: I was really excited to get this book, I know my prayer life is sadly lacking and I was intrigued by the concept, hoping it would bring a much needed lifeline to my prayer life. This book was even better than I expected! Thoughtfully written it is such a gem! It talks about how deeply important prayer is and how all different aspects of our lives would change if we truly took prayer seriously. I loved the scripture books the author found to support her thoughts and how she went through A to Z. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
