Confessions of a Prayer Slacker
Media: Ebook - Kindle
Rating 3 out 5 stars
How many of us will confess we slack in the area of prayer whether it is of the Christian faith or not? Confessions of a Prayer Slacker follows every excuse we tend to give for not finding time to pray and gives reason why those excuses are not good enough. Diane Moody shares stories of her own failings in the area of prayer, as well as the times when she found prayer to be helpful. She also talks about ways she made time and the discipline needed to remain strict in her prayer time. She gives challenges and exercises to help readers become better prayer warriors and have quality prayer time.
Something she suggests that helped in her prayer life was a prayer journal, one with various sections based on the type of prayer: thanksgiving, intercessory, needs etc. She keeps each of those prayers seperate so she may go back and when prayers have been answered. She reminds readers many times prayers are answered, just not in the way we expect.
Diane Moody is funny and witty in her writing. She makes the subject interesting and enjoyable rather than something to dread. She hits home with the excuses people make and while not intending to, she can make the reader feel ashamed for making those excuses, such as "I don't have time." If we can make time to catch that show on TV we can make time for prayer. She doesn't drone on about the subject as some other books are prone to do. She tells it like it is and comes up with great ideas on how to make your prayer life better and more natural.
