You may have heard of the ACTS prayer model, Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication. The P-R-A-Y-E-R Journal is very similar in that each letter represents an aspect of our prayer time. As the author states, “The concept for this book is based on the acronym – P-R-A-Y-E-R – to present a method to remember the elements of prayer.
What the author does is gives you an opening scripture reference, from there he uses the acronym combined with scripture to help you focus on what or how you should pray. One day for the “A” asking section he encourages you to pray for those needing salvation on another day your church leadership. He uses the same scriptures for the P and R but uses different scriptures for the other areas.
There is a place at the end of each day to make notes regarding your prayer time. Unlike the ACTS model where new believers might stumble on the word supplication the PRAYER model uses words that anyone should be able to understand. This is an ideal book for people who need structure or a place to start. The acronym and basic scriptures would also be good for those new to the Christian faith or for those who are teachers or in a discipling relationship with a new believer.
I did receive this book from the publisher, WestBow Press, through the Booksneeze.com website, however, I am under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.
