Summary: Do you ever find it hard to pray and don’t know what to say? Prayer is one of the most powerful, life-changing things we will ever do, and yet we often struggle. It’s hard to find the time. It’s repetitive, we get distracted and sometimes even bored. And the answers often feel few and far between. The good news? There is a simple, powerful way to reignite your conversation with God.

In Praying Women, bestselling author Sheila Walsh shares practical helps directly from God’s Word, showing you how to

– know what to say when you pray
– understand how to use prayer as a weapon when you are in the midst of a struggle
– pray as joy-filled warriors, not anxious worriers
– let go of the past and stand on God’s promises for you now

Prayer changes you and it changes the world. You may have tried before, but if you’re ready to start again in your relationship with God, let Sheila Walsh show you how to become a strong praying woman.

Praying Women

If you have trouble praying and you’re a woman, this is the book for you. I was very impressed with this book. I was worried it would just give a few general ideas and keep going on about how you just need to talk from the heart but there is more to it than that.

The chapter headings give you an idea of the topics:

  • Pray When You Don’t Know What to Say
  • Pray Because God is Waiting for You
  • Pray… and Don’t Give Up
  • Pray Hardest When It’s Hardest to Pray
  • Pray Through Your Pain
  • Pray When God Seems Silent
  • Pray With the Power of the Word of God
  • Pray With Your Armor On
  • Pray When You Need a Breakthrough
  • Pray from a Place of Victory

As you can see a lot of scenarios are covered. No matter what your struggles, if you need praying assistance, Sheila Walsh has some good advice.

Sheila Walsh wrote another book I reviewed here, It’s Okay Not to Be Okay which I also liked.
