    Do you feel like you're on the outside looking in when others speak of God's voice and His whispers to their heart? Cynthia Bezek does us the kind favor of walking us into a friendship with God that opens authentic, biblical two-way communication in prayer.

    Far more than the usual fill in-the-blank sort of Bible study, "Prayer Begins With Relationship" not only gives you more knowledge of Scripture, but also provides thoughtful steps to enrich your prayer life and relationship with God.

    Bezek presents objections and arguments she personally struggled with for years in a "do more" evangelical culture. Her honesty and personal stories are refreshingly humble. Her biblical contexts and examples to apply are thoroughly orthodox. Each of the six lessons is well-organized with a clear key idea and three sections: "Consider This" Bible study section, "Talk It Over" prayer responses, and "Continue To Practice" suggested ideas for application.

    "Prayer Begins With Relationship" would work beautifully either privately or with a small group, it's that flexible.

    Some books in the Christian marketplace today talk about revolutionary ways to do church, practice ministry, reach the world . . . Revolution is a buzzword. But a quiet little book like this, that brings the word of God to the people, allowing them a deep and rich relationship with Him---now, isn't that the stuff of real revolution and reform or that other good word---revival? Imagine what prayer could do! I'm keeping my eye on this book and it's readers.

    Prayer does not come easily and naturally to everyone. Cynthia Bezek, the author of this book, recognises that as she shares her struggles and successes in learning to connect with God.

    Written as a six lesson or six week study guide, ‘Prayer Begins With Relationship' explores the idea that struggles with prayer can be common, that we don't like to talk about disappointing experiences because it exposes our weakness and that if we change our thinking and understanding about what prayer is and knowing who God really is, it can change our attitudes, expectations and emotions and make our devotions more fulfilled.

    This is a very true to life book. The author records her personal life experiences and her response to them, talks about communication in a real sense, connects with the reader on how they perceive God, sets out points for consideration and allows space for personal reflection. It is also a very well presented and practical book. I enjoyed working through it and noting helpful pointers.

    While reading through it, I observed it to be useful as a personal study scheme but to be an excellent study group resource as well. It is thoughtfully written in noting the stances that different personalities have to observing a regular prayer life and even the ‘Afterword' has very practical advice on taking the lessons learned forward. A useful resource on building and strengthening our relationship with the Heavenly Father.
