This book

So I think every blogger who waits longer than a month in between posts, feels the need to open with an apology. I feel that need this morning. But I will just say sorry & move on to this book I'm reading (for the second time). Okay? Ok.

This book came to me at the perfect time and from the hands of the (almost) perfect person, my mentor of the past year.

You see I've been grappling with the concept of prayer & it's purpose. And making sense of why God doesn't heal physically or emotionally in some circumstances, after you pray & plead & try to persuade Him to do so. This book has taken me on a journey to answer that very question and as a result it had changed my definition of prayer. My understanding of prayer has gone from being clever or desperate enough to convince God to do what you want him to do; to simply sitting with Him, being near Him, just asking for more of Him.

All of that to say, if you're looking for a good, sound book on prayer this one is a home run.
