You are invited! The invitation from God's heart is to come receive his love-his intentional desire is revealed as he welcomes us into his presence. Our response to the invitation is by faith. Together, the disciplines of praying God's word and journaling cultivate a surrendered heart-accomplishing God's purpose-and, thereby discovering our purpose and the resulting, abundant life. Created for relationship and God's pleasure, we are designed for a life of prayer.

The Invitation:

• Stimulates a desire to have an increased prayer life

• Impresses the value of remembering God's Word and work in your life

• Offers personal journal entries of mental and physical training for the spiritual challenges of prayer

"Come!" Approach the throne today with confidence in his unfailing love for you and receive the provisions of his grace. The benefits you'll receive are endless: love, forgiveness, peace, rest, intimacy, strength, wisdom, protection, direction, wholeness, identity, and salvation.

    Beautifully written...

    "The Invitation" is rich in covering the covenant promises and includes practical application for our own walk with God as well. Sarah is passionate about prayer and journaling. It is a beautifully written book to help us realize our need for a surrendered heart and to give God priority in our lives.
