Book review: PrayerPoints

From the publisher:

Think about it . . . you feel more alive, whole, and centered when you’re firmly connected to God and anchored in his Word. You cling to him, give him your best moments, and talk with him nonstop. But then, there are times when you just don’t know how to sincerely express yourself through prayer. You’re at a loss for words, and a sense of helplessness takes hold of your heart.

God desperately wants to hear from you! PrayerPoints lets you take what you’re feeling right now, quickly connect your needs to God’s Word, and then pray through his promises as they relate to your specific need.

Don’t abandon your prayer life because you can’t find the right words to say. Let PrayerPoints guide your thoughts, direct you to the heart of Scripture, and move you to a place of wholehearted, all-out, amazing relationship with God.

My thoughts:

So many times, we want to cry out to God, but just can’t find the words.  This beautiful, leather-like volume offers appropriate scriptures and thoughts to bring you to God in prayer.  Each entry is comforting.  It offers scripture that applies to your situation, and gives you the words to help you express your thoughts and feelings to God.  Each entry is non-judgmental and encouraging, and brings peace.  It also helps you to focus on how God can help and comfort you.  PrayerPoints covers more than 170 topics, with nearly 250 entries that are indexed in the back of the book.  Not every entry will apply to each person, but many will.  Some topics are the Difficulties of Parenting, Suffering Abuse, Dealing with Bad Habits, Loneliness, and Worry.  I recommend this helpful prayer volume.  It is a beautiful item to give as a gift, also.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Tyndale House, in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
