All you need is your Bible and this method. You will connect with God more fully and you will learn your Bible more completely. It is a short, simple book that will breathe life into a stale prayer life. I read it in perhaps 30 minutes and did one exercise and saw the difference right away in being focused and connected. There is a 30 day reading plan to get started and as you master it, you will want to include other Bible passages.
JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent resource!December 26, 2015JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Do you have trouble praying? Does your mind wander? Do you say the same prayers in the same way over and over to the point where you have become bored with prayer? Do you think this means something is wrong with you or that you must not be a good-enough Christian?
You are not alone, and no boredom in prayer isnt from a lack of faith or lack of love toward God. It is, as Don Whitney says, a problem with method.
In this book, Whitney explains how to pray the Bible, why the best book to pray through is the Psalms, and guides you through with an exercise.
Ive heard the saying pray the Bible before. I had an idea what it meant (I was sort of right a little bit), but thought it would be too involved. I never really had it explained to me. This book explains it in such a simple way that I cant believe we all dont just instinctively know to do this. This is definitely one of those books that changed my way of thinking, and will hopefully have a profound effect on my prayer life.

UnashamedBecauseOfMercy5 Stars Out Of 5Praying The Bible - Donald S. WhitneyNovember 11, 2015UnashamedBecauseOfMercyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Prayer is essential to the survival of the Christian's walk. Every Christian should be a praying Christian and must be growing in his or her prayer life. Dr. Whitney is winsome and compassionate, yet straightforward and compelling in the necessity of prayer but especially in the practicality of how we may go about this conversation afforded every believer in Christ Jesus. Prayer is hard work but the practical advice here, when put into practice, will change it into a glorious privilege and season with the LORD. Praying without ceasing will truly become not only possible throughout the day but also refreshing and spontaneous. This book quickly presents the what and how and then abruptly stops and pleads for immediate practice, i.e. putting into practice what has just been read, getting beyond Information and moving to Transformation. While this book is a pretty quick read, it will be worth revisiting should one's prayer life waffle over time. It is also a book well worth having an extra copy or two to pass on to a mentee or brother or sister in the faith.
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Practical suggestions for your prayer lifeJuly 9, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We Christians have the Holy Spirit in us and He gives us the desire to talk to God. Why is it so hard? Why does it seem like we're saying the same things over and over?
The problem is not with us, Whitney says, but with our method. The answer is to pray through a passage of Scripture, particularly a psalm. While we should pray all of Scripture, the psalms are a good place to start.
To pray the Bible, you simply go through the passage line by line, talking to God about whatever comes to mind as you read the text. If nothing strikes us in the verse or we don't understand it, we just go on to the next verse. Just turn every thought Godward as we read, he suggests.
He explains why the psalms should be used and encourages a systematic approach. He provides a chart at the back of the book for that purpose. He also walks us through praying other Scripture, such as an epistle. He also explains how to pray through a narrative passage.
He includes a section where he asks us to actually pray through a psalm. He walks us through some of the most common responses to the exercise. He also includes tips for teaching this method to others and examples of heroes of the faith who prayed this way. An Appendix adds how this way of praying can be done in a group.
This book is the most practical I've seen yet on praying through a Bible passage. Whitney gives many illustrations so we get a good idea of how it is done. It gives us a platform so we are not praying the same things over and over.
This is a short book but the method is pretty simple. If you find your prayer life is a struggle, I recommend this method to breathe fresh life into your conversation with God.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
