The Weekly Prayer Project

24105713Are you ready for a project that will actually change your life?

Challenge yourself to journal, pray, reflect, and connect with God with The Weekly Prayer Project. Fifty-two scriptures, one for each week of the year, explore different types of prayers found in the Bible, from prayers of gratitude and thankfulness to prayers of lament and intercession. Each week’s journaling prompts will guide you to reflect on God’s work in your life and to pray with intention. Walk through this book, and see your faith deepen and your joy soar.

5 StarI love finding new ways that encourage people (and myself) in faith. The moment I first noticed The Weekly Prayer Project, I was intrigued and honestly, the book is everything I had hoped it would be.

First of all, this is a wonderfully designed book. It has a very sturdy hardcover, nice thick pages, and a ribbon bookmark. Inside, the pages have space to write (if there is one flaw in this book, it’s that there may not be enough journaling room in it), appealing graphics, and just a generally nice layout.

The book is divided into 7 types of prayer: Requests, Gratitude, Lament, Intercession, Faith, Repentance, and Awe. Each of those types is meant to be covered over 7-8 weeks. Each of the weeks covered in each type of prayer has a scripture related to a prayer in the Bible. Each scripture is only a verse or two long. That is followed by a brief thought about the verse, then a small journaling section to think about the passage presented. Finally, the last piece is to write out a prayer. There are prompts for this part.

Overall, I’m very pleased with this book. It certainly falls into what I thought and expected it to be. I think it is set up in such a way that it would be useful to new believers and mature believers alike. I could also see where in some ways, it could be used in a small group type setting as well. I’m looking forward to working my way through this book and seeing my faith and relationship with God grow.

If you are looking for a way to grow your prayer life, this book might just make a wonderful tool for you. I can also see where this book may also make a great gift for someone as well.
