    This book is excellent for the new or longtime believer. I think that Gina Duke really hits the head on the nail when she shares her convictions. We need to fully understand that when we pray we are talking to God.

    I love how the first 109 pages are an explanation of how to organize your prayer closet. Then the rest of the book are actual journal pages to be used by the reader.

    This book would make a great gift to give to yourself or someone you know.

    I was given this book by the book club network for my honest review.

    Do you struggle with praying or do you just talk about it? Do you know when and if God answers your prayers? Do you only pray when problems arise? How many books have you read on prayer?
    Gina Duke has provided for both new and older Christians an opportunity to see how she organizes her prayers.
    It presents the challenge to grow deeper in your prayer life. She provides 10 chapters in which she focuses on how to grow spiritually in praying. Examples are: Offering praise and thanksgiving, hearing God with clarity, remembering prayer requests, praying by using Scripture, and other areas of your life. At the back of the book, she has added 52 weeks of worksheets with the elements she uses in organizing her prayer closet.
    Is organization a skill to be developed? Of course it is. We can all benefit from organizing our homes and closets. She has laid it out for anyone seeking new ways to organize their prayers. It can become very meaningful in growing in Christ.
    I received this book from bookFun.org to review. This is my honest opinion. I recommend it. Buy it today.

    Great Book To Deepen Your Prayer Life
    April 9, 2014
    Rebecca

    Organizing Your Prayer Closet is a great motivational tool to deepen your prayer life. The author uses examples from her own life along with her talents in organization to create this helpful book with a journaling section included.

    For years I have kept a prayer journal to record the highlights of my prayer life, but the author, Gina Duke takes it to a new level. She separates out the different categories of a prayer and teaches the reader to really search their heart and pay attention to the details in our prayers.

    I would definitely recommend this books to anyone looking to deepen their prayer life.
    I was given a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Excellent resource for prayer growth

    Sometimes I think that with all that has been published on the topic of prayer, do we really need another book? But if the statistics quoted in the summary are anywhere close to accurate, then obviously there is a need! And then I think of my personal experience in this area - ranging all the way from consistency to only being prompted by need, and most often landing somewhere in the middle. So I decided that Gina's book was worth examining, and I am so glad I did. Sometimes a writer's style will especially "click" with readers, and I think Gina's message in Organizing Your Prayer Closet will do exactly that for many Christians.

    This is a book about prayer, a devotional, and a 60-week journal all in one. These are just a few things readers will learn:

    • Offer up meaningful worship
    • Grow spiritually by overcoming sin
    • Hear God with clarity
    • Remember prayer requests
    • How to pray with scripture
    • Develop faith and confidence in the sovereignty of God

    Prayer journaling is something I've always wanted to do, but have been unsuccessful at so far. I found Organizing Your Prayer Closet inspirational, logical, simple to follow, and filled with principles that I can easily put into practice. Gina's ideas have already made a big difference in my prayer life.

    Gina asks this question in the introduction: "Why wouldn't I record my petitions and God's answers, unless I don't think He answers them?" Then she goes into ten chapters dealing with areas of prayer-closet praying, combining personal stories with a passion and knowledge drawn from years of experience. Her non-intimidating style is conversational, easy to follow, and very motivational. Most people will shy away from something that looks like it will take a lot of time, but that's not the case here at all. This is more of a way to sort out your thoughts before entering into a time of prayer.

    Gina addresses the topic of petitions as one would expect, but there were several other chapters that I especially appreciated, like praise and thanksgiving . . . freedom and forgiveness . . . learning to hear God's answers . . . the difference between ask, seek and knock . . . trusting in God's sovereignty. One of my favorite quotes speaks a warning to all of us: "If you are serious about your spiritual growth, Satan will get just as serious - in a different direction."

    I highly recommend Organizing Your Prayer Closet, to seasoned Christian and new believers alike.

    Thank you to BookFun.org and Abingdon Press for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    “Organizing Your Prayer Closet: A New and Life-Changing Way to Pray,” by Gina Duke is a guide for helping a person’s prayer life. Each chapter is aimed at a different part of a prayer life, from “Praise and Thanksgiving,” “At the Right Time,” “Faith and Follow-Through” plus seven more” Each chapter is followed by instruction and examples on how to fill out a prayer journal, plus there are sample prayer journal pages in the back.
    By using the journal each person is able to see how God works through their prayer petitions.
    This is a wonderful book for those who are just beginning their prayer lives and as a reminder for those that may need to find a different manner of keeping a prayer journal.
    I was given this book by the author and TBCN, Inc., in exchange for my honest review of this work.
