How refreshing it was to read this book, which thankfully did not attach the concept of prayer to a Christian's discipline or duty, but simply motivated me to pray for no other reason but the sheer JOY of communicating with my God. Cheri reminds me that I don't have to feel guilty if I miss a given stretch of devoted "prayer time" with Him, because I can talk to Him anywhere, at anytime, at which time I will find Him listening and anxious to answer. What a great book!
This was a good book for me because I am (1) very busy and (2) I feel like my prayer life is not very mature. The cover alone intrigued me because I have always wanted to develop my prayer life, but feel like I never have the time. Cheri gives some great suggestions for integrating prayer into your daily routine. For one, she suggested praying while working out. I've started doing this in the past week, and it is amazing how you can pray the whole time! This book helped me to realize that prayer ...more

This book lets other women know that they are not alone in the world trying to find time to pray more and longer. Prayer is about a relationship between the person who is praying and God. Prayer is not a performance act. You can be who you truly are when you pray to the father. Prayers have the greatest influence out of everything you do. "God hears, answers, and never forgets prayers." Pray for people that you want to see in heaven. Remember and never forget Psalm 91. Perservance in prayer real ...more
Great book about prayer. This is not just another tip book, but it's also not just another person's opinion. It is filled with testimonies, practical application, encouragement, and biblical principles all woven together to make an enjoyable and spiritually uplifting read. I highly recommend this book to women (and young women) of all ages or stages in life. You will be encouraged, comforted, and challenged in a delightful way.

“Worrying doesn’t take away tomorrow’s grief,” said Corrie ten Boom. “It takes away today’s strength. It does not enable us to avoid evil, but it makes us incapable of dealing with it when it comes.”4”
“Many stories of the Bible tell of a person who prayed multiple times. Jesus himself prayed three times in the Garden of Gethsemane (see Matthew 26:36–44). Paul asked three times for his “thorn in the flesh” to be removed (2 Corinthians 12:7–9 KJV). And Elijah prayed to God seven times for rain before the drops began to pour from the sky (see 1 Kings 18). Perseverance in prayer is never nagging. God loves to hear your voice.”More quotes…
