Rick Hamlin reminds us that prayer is not something that you do just in a Church but it is something a spiritual person does everywhere.
Hamlin has a new book published by Hampton Roads Publishing Company (Wesiser Books) titled “10 Prayers You Can’t Live Without” (link).
In this inspirational “how-to” book, Guideposts executive editor Rick Hamlin shares ten real-life ways of praying to God. He draws on the practical insight he has gained from the everyday men and women in the pages of Guideposts magazine and from his own lifelong journey in prayer.
He encourages readers to think of prayer as an ongoing conversation that God that should include everything. He expounds on the power of prayer. He discusses how to find a time and place for prayer every day, the importance of praying in times of crisis, of how to ask for forgiveness, and how to listen to the spiritual nudges God gives us.
The 10 prayers are:
- Conversational prayers
- Mealtime prayers
- Prayers for others
- The Lord’s Prayer
- Forgiveness prayers
- Crisis prayers
- Singing prayers
- Thanksgiving prayers
- The Jesus prayer
- “Yes and . . .” prayers (aka possibility prayers)
This is a book filled with practical advice, insight, and inspirational stories; a book for anyone who wants to develop a rich and vibrant spiritual practice.
