The Essential Guide to Prayer: Life-Changing Teaching on the Simplicity of Having a Powerful Prayer Life, by Dutch Sheets is focused on implementing prayer into everyday life.
This book is based on the author's personal reflections and experiences, as well as research and scripture passages. According to the back cover, "A prayer life with God isn't complex, but sometimes not knowing how to start can be enough to make a person turn away altogether.... Dig deeper into the core of your prayer life by learning to pray effectively both alone and in groups, and by persisting in prayer until you see God's answers."
It's divided into thirteen chapters, which are titled as The Priority of Intercession, The Plan of Intercession, The Person of Intercession, The Purpose of Intercession, The Prize of Intercession, The Place of Intercession, The Protection of Intercession, The Power of Intercession, The Perseverance of Intercession, Proactive Intercession, Proclamation Intercession, The Pain of Intercession, and The Pleasure of Intercession. Each chapter ends with three to five questions in the Did You Understand? section to follow-up on the material previously discussed.
The Essential Guide to Prayer is a resource for individuals and groups interested in focusing more on prayer.
Note: I received this book from Bethany House Publishers, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
