it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** Such a helpful, honest look at prayer from one who ( like myself ) struggles to be real in her prayer life, admitting that she doesn’t always get it right, but willing to dig deep and learn more about the way Jesus modelled prayer for us.
Immediately comes to mind the Lords Prayer, but this is not where Elisa takes the reader, but to Jesus prayer in the garden of Gethsemane on the night of his betrayal......
“ Jesus prayed honest, “Take this cup.” But now, in the same breath, in the same sentence, he prays another prayer, seemingly the opposite of the one he just spoke. Side two ofJesus’ prayer coin”.

This is a fresh approach to prayer, this 2-sided prayer “Coin” that I had not previously considered.
Praying with absolute honesty about what we either want or don’t want, but then also with abandon to having Gods will and plan supersede our wishes........

I enjoyed the “non preachy” style of Elisa’s writing, quotes from scripture and well-known authors gave much food for thought, and this is a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to both seasoned and new believers alike. And the best thing ? This two-sided prayer shapes us. It teaches us. It changes us.....
