The Essentials of Effective Prayer

I got to review a 6 week (no homework) Bible Study. I was and am so excited about this one! I am always looking for a bible Study, either short or long... This one takes like 40 minutes, but you can go longer if you want. Even shorter if you are short on time.

To be honest, I haven't gotten through it all yet, I got it about 4 weeks ago, so I have another 2 weeks to go. When I am done with it in 2 weeks, I'll pull a name out and send it if I pick your name in 2 weeks. I didn't write in it, just so I could share it with someone! Please post a comment on here, email me or on FB by August 31st. I will send it to you if I pick your name after I am done with it!

The Essentials of Effective Prayer is by Kay Arthur, David and BJ Lawson.

This book is more for a group study, but can easily be done with just one person.

I am going to just write a few paragraphs from the beginning...

"Do you pray?

Really, do you pray? How often? How effective do your prayers seem to be?

Do you question whether your prayer life is all it should be? Do you ever wonder if God still answers when people pray? Do you worry that you don't truly understand what prayer is?

If you've asked yourself these questions, you are not alone. Almost all of us have questioned at some time what prayer really is and how-or if- it really works.

In this study we will discover the answers to these questions as we examine what Scripture teaches about prayer and consider how to apply those truths to our own lives.

We will also explore the connection between prayer and pleasing God. A.W.Tozer, a man known for the vitality of his prayer life, once wrote, "What the praying man does is to bring his will into line with the will of God so God can do what He has all along been willing to do.""

This has been a great Bible Study and can't wait to finish it!!!

Go to Randomhouse.com or your local Family Christian Store to purchase, but first, see if you win it, then go get it!!! :O)
