Even though I've labeled this post as a "Book Review", I'd call this something like a "book recommendation" or perhaps even "Here's a few brief thoughts this book gave me."
Whatever you want to call it, there is a book I just completed that I'm very anxious to share with you. It is Larry Crabb's, The PAPA Prayer
I was given this book for free. I'm so thankful for the individual who gave me this book. I probably would not have purchased it at a store. I would have passed by it thinking, "No thanks. I've already read Yancey's and Foster's book on prayer. How could this one be any different or better?"
This book views prayer from more of a relational side than Yancey and Foster...although Yancey and Foster do touch on it.
I'll be honest...I don't say things like this much. But if you struggle with your prayer life then you need to read this book. It's awesome.
I don't want to give away any of his content...he communicates it better than I ever could. I'd probably lessen the power that his truths reveal.
Please read this book! You'll see your relationship with God soar to new levels. I've recently seen this book at a used bookstore in Lake Park for $3.00. This can be the best $3.00 you've ever spent. If the money is still an issue even after the discounted price, I'll let you borrow mine.
This is an incredible book. I'll end with one of my favorite phrases from this book.
"When we mature enough to want from God what He's ready to give us, incredible things happen-sometimes around us, always in us. He may use His power to change our circumstances to our liking. He will use His power to change our hearts to His liking."
