Amelia Rhodes’ ‘Pray A to Z’ Guide to Prayer Prize Pack

Are you ready to change your community, one prayer at a time? Learn how to organize your prayer requests topically and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father with the help of Amelia Rhodes’ new book, Pray A to Z. Whether you are praying for a friend’s adoption journey, a neighbor’s bankruptcy, or a family member’s cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.

This Mom’s Review:

Do you pray for your community? I admit I’ve been a little selfish only praying for my family lately. I do spend time praying for trafficked children, as that is the burden most on my heart. However, I don’t extend my prayers beyond that very often.

After reading Pray A to Z, I am reminded of all the needs in our community that can be met through prayer (and whatever God leads me to do). In the book I was led to pray over different areas of need found in most communities. Each page consisted of a translated piece of Scripture, an area or group of people to pray for, and a prayer to get started.

Also included in the book are praise prayers. Oh how I forget to praise my Heavenly Father for all He is and does. With 130 prayer topics (including the praise prayers), I will be able to pray for my community (and praise God) on a daily basis without need for ideas of what to pray about.

Learn more about Pray A to Z and how to pray for your community, and enter to win Amelia’s Guide to Prayer Prize Pack to get you started.

Pray A to Z: Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community Book Cover Pray A to Z: Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community

About the Book:

Change the world one prayer at a time.

How would our community change if instead of absently saying, "I'll pray for you," we actually did pray---deeply, intensely, and purposefully?

Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Community will help you topically organize your prayer requests and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father.

With compassion and encouragement, Amelia Rhodes offers Bible verses and prayer prompts, organized topically for every letter of the alphabet. There are five topics per letter---three prayers of petition asking God to work in a certain area of need, and two more prayers of praise to reflect gratitude for God's presence in the daily issues and relationships of life. Through petition and praise, your specific, focused communion with God will lighten your heart as you place the heaviness of those prayer requests where they belong---on His strong shoulders.

Whether you are praying for a friend's adoption journey, a neighbor's bankruptcy, or a family member's cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.

Favorite #LMMLinkup: 100 Reasons to Homeschool a Child with ADHD
 

This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I am about to take the plunge of homeschooling. My son is a preschooler. While he isn’t ADHD, he has apraxia (speech delay) and sensory processing disorder. Being a special needs child makes our lives more challenging. Hearing that another momma has 100 reasons to homeschool has me not regretting my decision. Thanks so much, Shelly!

#LMMLinkup :: Happy Thanksgiving

Yesterday, we celebrated our youngest’s 4th birthday. While he is our baby, we celebrated our oldest’s 20th birthday just a few weeks ago. I am so blessed to have these three children. Oh, there’s a third child? Yes, the poor middle child is our only daughter. She is loved and definitely couldn’t be forgotten.

#LMMLinkup Favorite Post :: The Power of Words

This has really spoke to me about how my words have changed over time … and not for the good of others. I used to cringe at some of the things a close family member would say when I was a youngster. Now I am finding myself just as repulsive. May God forgive me for my damaging words and renew within me a heart to speak words for Him.
