    Everyone knows how to pray, right?  Do we need to learn a new way?  Maybe a fresh approach is just what readers need to find a closer relationship with God.  Charles Simpson’s book not only defines prayers, but addresses aspects of prayer such as fervent prayer, using Scripture, fasting, and praying as Jesus did.




    It can be surprising how many ways we can pray throughout each day of our lives.  We pray when we work, play, suffer, care for our families and much more.   Simpson uses good examples of praying in assorted situations and speaks to questions about “unanswered” or delayed answers to prayers.  




    The 21 questions are surely ones we have all thought about and readers will enjoy the explanations of the answers.  




    I was given a free copy of this book by Chosen Books for the purpose of review and recommend it to adult and teenage readers who are curious about prayer and seek a deeper relationship with God through prayer.

    Simpson offers a guidebook that offers readers tools on how to deepen their prayer lives. It is easy to pray thoughtless, routine prayers that don't get results because they are offered without meaning. Simpson addresses this in his book in an easy to use format. Each chapter consists of a different question and answer such as, How Does God Want Me to Pray?, What Does It Mean to Pray Fervently?, Should I Quote Scripture When I Pray?, and Why Pray?.

    I have mixed feelings about this book, which I think is a good thing. Some chapters were not that meaningful to me, and I felt like they were too long. On the other hand, I was completely transfixed to other chapters, and they seemed so short that I wished Simpson would write an entire book on that topic alone. I think this is because the information in some chapters was not new to me, while other chapters offered information in a different way from I've ever read before. I particularly enjoyed the chapter on fasting and Simpson's thoughts on fasting.

    I think this would be an excellent book for a new believer to read to start their prayer life on a straight path. It would also be a great book for a bible study group to look at one chapter a week over a period of several weeks and focus on developing that skill or exploring that topic. Even mature believers could benefit from some chapters in this book. Simpson writes in an easy-to-understand, engaging manner, that is enjoyable to read.

    If you are wanting to strengthen or deepen your prayer life, this is the book for you. If you are concerned that your prayer life isn't all it could or should be, this book might help you. It is one of those books that keeps you thinking, even after you close the covers.

    I received a copy of this book from the Chosen division of Baker Publishing Groups in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
