Pray A to Z by Amelia Rhodes

"Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community" by Amelia Rhodes is just what it's name implies. What would happen if we told people we'd pray for them and then actually did it? Purposefully, intentionally, thoughtfully, lovingly prayed for them?

A lot of times we want to pray but just don't know what to say. Amelia Rhodes has changed the way I think about prayer. What if we prayed for people by topic, going through the entire alphabet?

What I think is fantastic about this idea is that you can customize each list. Your list might not necessarily be the same as mine based on what is going on in your life and in your friends lives. You can definitely read through this book and use it in your own daily prayers. I would highly recommend reading through it even if you end up making your own list.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way the author broke up each letter of the alphabet. Each letter includes 5 topics. The first three topics of each letter are prayers of petition and the last two are for prayers of praise and acknowledgement of God.

I'm a big fan of books on prayer. Prayer is a vital part of our walk with Jesus and sometimes when we're struggling, we just don't know what to pray. I love the concept that Amelia Rhodes has created here. This would be a fun book to go through as a Bible study or Sunday School Class that is focusing on prayer. It's the perfect size to take with you everywhere you go!

I rate this book as 5 stars. I received this book for free from Litfuse in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
