Prayer is a waste of time. I know. I prayed for a pony when I was a kid and never got one.

God's got His hands full. He doesn't have time for my piddlysquat prayers.

I don't know what to say. I don't know how. It's just too awkward.

I've got bad knees. I can't kneel. It doesn't count if you don't kneel.

Talk about your lame excuses…

Let's face it.

Overview

Prayer is a waste of time. I know. I prayed for a pony when I was a kid and never got one.

God's got His hands full. He doesn't have time for my piddlysquat prayers.

I don't know what to say. I don't know how. It's just too awkward.

I've got bad knees. I can't kneel. It doesn't count if you don't kneel.

Talk about your lame excuses…

Let's face it. Most of us are clueless when it comes to prayer. Why is that? And how come we've never done anything about it? In Confessions of a Prayer Slacker, author Diane Moody traces her own personal prayer journey with a touch of humor and a touch of humor and a healthy dose of transparency. "Isn't it about time we stop this merry-go-round of prayerlessness, quit acting like a bunch of spiritual babies, and get serious about this thing called prayer? Without it, we'll never experience the warm, one-on-one relationship God desires to have with each one of us."

I guess I've read too many guilt-inducing tomes on prayer because this one ain't. Instead I felt inspired to start a actual prayer life (in contrast to the under-the-breath desperate mutterings I'm prone to), while laughing out loud at the author's wit and transparency of her own prayer struggles. This will energize you (while artfully knocking each excuse out from under you) to get serious about prayer. Guilt not included!

What a wonderful book for the would be prayer warrior! Ms. Moody removed all of the excuses by claiming them for herself. Then, with love and humor, gives direction and guidance, step by step to encourage all to develop a full and complete prayer life, along with a loving, trusting relationship with our Lord. A must read for all who are "too busy" to spend time in prayer.

I giggled through the entire book. I loved Moody's honesty and self depreciation. Her advise is very sound. I recommend this.

This is my second read by this author, first was a novel, "Home to Walnut Ridge." I found this book so helpful and motivating without being condescending - truly an inspiring read, causing me to want a closer pray life with God. Love her humor!
