She Prays: A 31-Day Journey to Confident Conversations with God {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 





One of the most wonderful things about walking with God is that we can have an intimate and real relationship with him. He wants us to know him so well that we are comfortable talking to him about anything and everything. Yet, there are times when we feel disconnected and insecure. We desire to grow in prayer, but we don't know where to begin, what to say, or how to listen for his voice.

In She Prays, Debbie Lindell invites you on a 31-day journey to experience a confident and conversational relationship with your heavenly Father. She shows you how to replace the pressure to perform in prayer with a faith-filled expectation--trusting that God is delighted with every conversation and every word we whisper to him. Her desire is that your soul will be transformed as your confidence in prayer grows, and that your faith will be strengthened as you see God work through your prayers in ways you never imagined possible.



Debbie Lindell is the author of She Believes, and she and her husband, John, serve as lead pastors of James River Church in Springfield, Missouri. In 2003, Debbie launched the Designed for Life Women's Conference, which today draws 10,000 women annually from across the nation and around the world. As a dynamic leader and speaker, she has a passion to see women of all ages embrace their unique design, understand their purpose, and connect to one another through life-giving sisterhood.

Do you ever feel that you're just not very good at prayer? Oh sure, perhaps we logically know that this isn't true--- after all, there is no right or wrong way to pray. We don't have to speak in eloquent poetry to have a strong prayer life. Still, we're only human and I feel as women especially we tend to be our own worst critics. We hear others who can say a prayer so beautifully that we begin to lose confidence that our own simple prayers are actually adequate. When this happens, prayer becomes more of a point of concern, taking away from what it should be--- simply time spent with God in a way that is natural and unique for each of us.

If you've ever struggled with this, or are otherwise looking for ways to improve your prayer life, She Prays is definitely one that it worth checking out. She Prays takes us on a 31 day journey written to help us gain confidence in our prayer life and strengthen our relationship with God through that. It is broken down into four parts helping us to pray with understanding, knowledge, trust and power. Within those parts, it is broken up day by day. Each day starts with a scripture and a devotion. The devotions are a bit longer than some I've read (about 5-6 pages each), but still very quick to read through. At the end we are given some questions to consider based upon that devotion, and a small space to record those thoughts if desired. On most days there is not a ton of room to write, but you could certainly use a separate journal if you felt it necessary as well. I love how beautifully Debbie Lindell manages to weave together personal stories and scriptural references to really give us a better understanding about what prayer is and should be, and how we can be more confident in our own prayers as well. I feel like this is a devotional that so many women need, and one that can transform our prayer lives too. I would certainly recommend this one to anyone struggling with how to pray, what to pray or not praying well enough.
