Praying Through: Overcoming the Obstacles That Keep Us From God
WHO: Jarrett Stevens, founding pastor of Soul City in Chicago.
HE SAYS: “With presence, patience and practice, prayer becomes another way to communicate—perhaps the most important way, one that communicates the most important things about your life.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book coaches those people new to or uncomfortable with prayer to find the words and rhythm of talking with God.
The author introduces prayer in eight chapters, each one focusing on different situations readers might find themselves in, such as when they are worried, grieving, feeling grateful, etc.
