First, a note to all my fellow “challenged readers” who have begun many books with good intentions, only to end up with a stack that will never be finished.
“Focused Prayer” is not a “book” in that sense – you don’t need to read it cover-to-cover right off the bat. It is more of a daily devotional with scripture verses that sharpen the focus of your prayer time.
So often when I pray, my mind begins to wander, my focus takes a hike, and I end up ineffectively praying for those people and situations that were so important to me when I wrote them on my list. Once I get off track, I usually stay there, and my prayers are not effective. The “Focused Prayer” method prevents my wandering mind from leading me to foggy, distracted, ineffective, far away regions.
I have also come to realize the power of inviting God’s Word into my prayer time. His promises and guidance bring new life and confidence into my prayers.
- I’m excited to see how this works for you too!
