Pray A to Z by Amelia Rhodes - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Pray A to Z: Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community (Worthy, November 2016)

Change the world one prayer at a time.

How would our community change if instead of absently saying, "I'll pray for you," we actually did pray---deeply, intensely, and purposefully?

Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Community will help you topically organize your prayer requests and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father.

With compassion and encouragement, Amelia Rhodes offers Bible verses and prayer prompts, organized topically for every letter of the alphabet. There are five topics per letter---three prayers of petition asking God to work in a certain area of need, and two more prayers of praise to reflect gratitude for God's presence in the daily issues and relationships of life. Through petition and praise, your specific, focused communion with God will lighten your heart as you place the heaviness of those prayer requests where they belong---on His strong shoulders.

Whether you are praying for a friend's adoption journey, a neighbor's bankruptcy, or a family member's cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.

My Thoughts:

This book has been one of those "right on time" books in my life.  It seemed every time I picked it up I could find a prayer that helped me see my way past a situation and through to the truth of God's word.  I really can hardly believe how MANY subjects this powerful book covers!  There is a scripture verse to ponder and imprint upon your heart.  There is a central thought to consider, and then the author beautifully and intimately talks with The Father.  You can pray the words she's written, but you can also use this as a template for prayers of your own.  This would be a great book for a new believer, and can help strengthen the prayer life of a long time believer.  I am happy to recommend this book to everyone!
