5 Stars Out Of 5
Forming a habit for fixed hour prayer
January 29, 2012
This book is an excellent and essential companion to Scazzero's book, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Unleash the Power of Authentic Life in Christ. It is best used while reading through that book. Each chapter gives you 5 days of morning and evening guides to prayer that follow the material in the larger book. Those who have tried to form a habit of having a single, daily "quiet time devotional" and have become discouraged, ought to try this approach. Scazzero shows how it can be much more helpful to have more short periods of prayer throughout the day than to have one longer one. Periodic prayer during the day does much more to help one maintain an awareness of God's presence in our lives. Together these books offer some very helpful and accessible material on growing emotionally and spiritually healthy without being trite or shallow. I highly recommend these books.
