A Simple Way to Pray

Becky Tirabassi has a wonderful way of making prayer seem approachable. After all, God is. So is prayer! She encourages us to see prayer simply as a conversation with God.

This author helps each of us ease into prayer with this Christian book on prayer: Let God Talk to You. This is an especially good book for those beginning their journey with God and prayer.

Some of the most effective prayer times I’ve had with the Lord include praying His Word. Beth Moore’s on to something with this.

Prayers for Your Children

We reviewed the two books below on the blog a few months ago. You can read the post here. I love these! They are two of my favorite parenting prayer tools.

One book targets daughters and the other sons. Because each faces different adversities, the prayers and focus change accordingly. Both books are well worth the simple investment.

Powerful Prayer Books

The two books listed below (plus a whole library of other prayer titles) were written by Stormie Omartian. They’re simple but powerful, too. (Read this review of The Power of a Praying Wife .)

One thing I like about each of these titles is that they are easily read and prayed. Simple can equate to powerful, too. Look for other titles concerning husbands, adult children, and more.

  1. I just wrote 7 books about prayer and I think our lists are different. I have Praying God’s Word but didn’t include it on the list. I am adding a few more books to my books to read list.

    1. That’s neat that you wrote about prayer as well, Beth. I’d love to see your list. Feel free to link it below.

  2. Thank you for sharing our prayer books for parents! And thank you for praying faithfully for your family–it inspires me to lift mine up, too. So glad we’re walking life as “sisters” together!

    1. You’re welcome! I wouldn’t share them if I didn’t feel so strongly that they’re a fantastic resource for parents. I’m glad we’re walking life as “sisters” too. I thank God for you, Joanna.

  3. Thank you so much for your list of prayer books. I have the Praying for your Son but will definitely purchase the others. I am also doing the Psalm challenge and I can’t tell you how much I have learned and enjoy reading the Psalms. Praise God for you Kristi!
