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.

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.
