Here are this weeks summer recommendations on the discipleship topic of prayer. Remember, you can download all the apps via your favorite device and the books are available on the Welcome Desk (limited numbers). If the Welcome Desk is all out then you can grab a copy from the church’s online bookstore.
A Praying Life – Paul Miller (£8.50):
“Written like an organized blog, A Praying Life is an honest look at the difficulties of prayer, unanswered prayers, and successes in prayer. Readers will appreciate Paul Miller’s down–to–earth approach and practical nature. Parents will find his family–life experiences especially helpful.”
This book has been well loved in our church for a number of years and has helped numerous people come to understand grace in a new and life changing way.
See also: “Enjoy Your Prayer Life” – a staggeringly simple book which blows the doors off what we understand prayer to be and what we expect to achieve through prayer. (£3)
** Special Offer: Buy both books today for just £10 from the welcome desk **
PrayerMate – for Android & iOS (free):
“Organise your prayer life with this straightforward and distraction-free app. Every day, Prayer Mate will select a person or topic that you’ve entered from each of your main categories (perhaps “My family” or “My small group at church”) and show them to you as a series of index cards – then just swipe between them to pray.” This app allows you to organise and focus in your prayer life without becoming a distraction.
See also: Echo – another app for organising your prayer life. This app has a special focus of sending out reminders to pray for specific things at specific times. (Currently only available on iOS)
