Handle with Prayer: Unwrap the Source of God's Strength for Living - eBook
A Good Manual On Prayer And So Much More!
This is a wonderfully written book that covers a lot of the common questions we have about prayer:
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ The purpose of prayer
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Why our prayers go unanswered
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ How to pray with authority
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ Praying for others
Ã¢ÂÂ¢ The warfare of prayer
But, this book pleasantly goes beyond the basic information to provide rich insights about the benefits of praying and fasting, what it means to have a prayer burden (and why we might have one), and how to pray in the will of God. All of Charles StanleyÃ¢ÂÂs key points are backed up with scripture and there are many personal anecdotes to help support the principles in this book. Especially worth pondering is StanleyÃ¢ÂÂs comment about the attitude of our heart when praying. We have a God that desires to truly know us and have a relationship with us. This book helps to teach principles beyond using prayer as a tool to just ask God for stuff. ItÃ¢ÂÂs a tool for seeking God at a deeper level, knowing His will and how to obtain His guidance for your life.
At the end of this book there is a 13 session group leaderÃ¢ÂÂs guide. For each lesson, it includes the overall goals for each session, what you can do to prepare for each session and several discussion questions relating to each chapter. From a quick review of the questions, it seems like this would be a terrific study to share with a small group. I think there would be great value in doing this study with others.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from David C. Cook in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.
