Does God answer your prayers? Would you like to have more power in your prayer life? This journal has been developed to assist the user to develop a more powerful, disciplined prayer life on the order of the first-century apostles and Church that the glory of God may be revealed as He pours out His benefits on His people.
Why does the Church lack the power in prayer of the apostles and the Church of the first century? I believe that James 4:23 describes two answers to this question: ye have not, because ye ask not, and Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Certainly God meets our needs; however, our purpose in prayer is to focus on the Glory of God being revealed in His meeting our need.
The story in Scripture of Peter walking on water is an example to illustrate Gods desire and design in regard to His communion with us. Peter said to Jesus, as he and the disciples were in a boat in a storm on the Sea of Galilee, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water. His petition was a prayer of faith, not that Jesus would do something to exalt Peter, but that by his obedience and the power of Jesus he would walk on water, and he did!
Many such miracles were accomplished by God through the disciples in the first century. Can God do the same in the twenty-first century through you? Could you pray with such intention to glorify God?

The P-R-A-Y-E-R Journal is very similar in that each letter represents an aspect of our prayer time. As the author states, "The concept for this book is based on the acronym - P-R-A-Y-E-R - to present a method to remember the elements of prayer.
What the author does is gives you an opening scripture reference, from there he uses the acronym combined with scripture to help you focus on what or how you should pray. One day for the "A" asking section he encourages you to pray for those needing salvation on another day your church leadership. He uses the same scriptures for the P and R but uses different scriptures for the other areas.
There is a place at the end of each day to make notes regarding your prayer time. Unlike the ACTS model where new believers might stumble on the word supplication the PRAYER model uses words that anyone should be able to understand. This is an ideal book for people who need structure or a place to start. The acronym and basic scriptures would also be good for those new to the Christian faith or for those who are teachers or in a discipling relationship with a new believer.
I did receive this book from the publisher, WestBow Press, through the Booksneeze.com website, however, I am under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.
