The Busy Mom's Guide To Prayer

by Lisa Whelchel

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


For most Christians, constancy in prayer is a challenge, and for moms it is especially imperative that we spend time on our knees with our Creator. Now, Lisa Whelchel, author of Creative Correction, has created a practical and enjoyable tool for women desiring a richer prayer life.

The Busy Mom’s Guide to Prayer is an interactive prayer journal, gently leading the reader into an intimacy with the Father. A self-confessed prayer failure in the past, Whelchel assures mothers that the Lord is merciful, while prodding them forward to becoming women of prayer. The book is a creative instrument for establishing a regular time to communicate with the Lord, comprised of scripture, people, a prayer focus—such as integrity, friends, and obedience, and helps for the uninspired pray-er to pray. The author also provides enough space for filling in personal thoughts, prayers, scriptures, and requests.

One of the first in the Motherhood Club line of books, it has set the tone of practicality, biblical soundness, and spiritual necessity for moms looking for guidance and support. If any woman feels she is floundering in her prayer life, The Busy Mom’s Guide to Prayer is a lifeline to draw her back into resting in the Lord. – Anne Walker, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

The heart of a mom is wrapped up in the people she loves—her children, her husband, her co-workers, her friends. She wants to give the very best of herself, but sometimes busy schedules get in the way of the most precious gift she can give them—her prayers.

Author Lisa Whelchel offers seven categories of prayer that can be used to fit each mom’s special needs. In one month a mom can bring nearly one hundred and twenty matters before her heavenly Father. From requests for God’s protection, or praise for God’s faithfulness, this plan brings order and purpose to prayer.
