Great insight as to ways to jump start your prayer life. Don't get bogged down in the 'how to's' or 'do's and don'ts'--let the Spirit lead you. Batterson's recommendations are good but can be a bit overwhelming to take in all at once. Especially for the new believer.
Better than expected! i am in my fourth reading now. i read it as part of my daily devotions and as soon as i finish, i start it again! i read a chapter per day and at the end of each chapter, i circle (literally) my prayer concerns. i am praying for one person who continues to treat me like the devil but praying for him keeps unforgiveness from eating me alive.
