She Prays: A Book Review by Kay Burnett
Debbie Lindell has written a delightful 31-day devotional, She Prays: A 31-Day Journey to Confident Conversations with God, that takes the reader on a quest to pray more effectively and with a greater sense of confidence and ease.
Prayer can often feel intimidating and awkward. Debbie encourages the reader to step in closer to God and learn to talk to Him with freedom and assurance because He takes great joy in communicating with His children. She Prays frames the heart and character of God as a Father who cherishes His daughters and desires a cherished relationship with each one.
She Prays is a joyful invitation to talk to God and know Him better. For anyone new to faith, She Prays will instill a sense of excitement to begin their journey with a healthy and vibrant prayer life. Debbie’s instruction on prayer with her heartfelt reassurance will go a long way to solidify a commitment to faithful prayer as a lifestyle.
For the mature believer, She Prays will reignite a passion for prayer and cultivating the presence of God. Debbie’s friendly, relaxed approach reads like a conversation between girlfriends over a cup of coffee, allowing discussion of profound truths to feel uncomplicated and understandable. Topics covered throughout the thirty-one devotions range from the power of prayer to combatting the enemy of our souls, to how the structure of the Trinity factors into our methods of prayer. The subjects are varied and engaging, equipping the reader to understand the importance of prayer and God’s invitation to connect intimately with Him.
Debbie’s passion for prayer will cause the reader to hunger for more and to press in to know God in a deeper way. She challenges women to step into a faithful, active prayer life, stating, “It is either growing in strength or diminishing in power.” Engaging with the journal prompts at the end of each day’s reading will guide the reader to apply the truths Debbie shares, providing an opportunity for true growth and transformation.
She Prays is a useful resource to disciple women who have recently made a commitment to Christ, as well as a helpful reminder of the power of prayer for veteran Christ-followers. Leaders could buy multiples of She Prays and offer the book as a gift for any woman who wants to develop her prayer life.
