With an enthusiastic invitation to use her book as an interactive guide to deepen the reader's prayer, Debbie Williams sets out to redirect the focus from us to God, who is divine, and who can accomplish all things. Using the acronym PRAY for Praise, Repent, Ask, and Yield, she encourages a study of God's attributes with an A-Z exploration which ranges from Almighty to Zealous God. Each chapter reveals more of who God is and how He alone is capable to meet our every need as we recognize who He truly is.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Williams (Prayers of My Heart) transforms the firefighter's motto of "stop, drop and roll" to "stop, drop, and pray" as she summons Christian women to a deeper relationship with Christ. She says that if a woman wants to break out of spiritual apathy, she must first recognize the danger and stop, then drop to her knees and pray. The gimmicks don't stop there: Williams unpacks the word PRAY into an acronym for four steps of prayer itself. Believers should Praise God, Repent and confess sins, Ask for help and Yield to God's will. The majority of Williams's text is a meatier-than-expected A to Z devotional emphasizing the myriad qualities of God. Each alphabetical entry includes a scripture verse, a brief prayer of summation, an in-depth yet succinct study of the specific attribute, a meditation moment and an invitation to interact in journal form. Williams looks at God as a vine dresser, nourishing the soul; as an empowerer who strengthens believers; and as an equitable judge. Leaders' guide materials delve into deeper questions, and at-a-glance A to Z reference charts add value. Despite some superficial attention-grabbing devices in the early pages, this is a satisfactory devotional primer. (Jan. 3) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
