From new believer to those who have walked with God for decades, prayer remains an illusive concept. For those who are new to prayer, it often seems daunting: How should I pray? What should I pray for? Is there a right (or wrong) way to pray? How much faith does prayer require? How long should I pray about something before giving up? Should I ever give up? And for more seasoned Christians, the challenge of prayer is keeping it fresh. It's not that we don't know how to pray; it's that we tire easily, get discouraged, give up too soon. Or we put our faith and hope in a "magic formula" prayer instead of placing it in the One to Whom we pray. No matter what end of the spectrum a believer fits, when it comes to prayer often the best encouragement is found in the company of others who pray. We learn by their examples. The Prayer of Deborah focuses on one of the Bible's most notable women, along with nine other women of the Bible, all of whom prayed for different things, in different ways. By using the examples of these godly women, the book is designed to show the reader different types of prayer, as well as different reasons to pray. The types of prayer include willingness and surrender; praise and worship; thanksgiving and personal supplication; pleading for mercy; intercession and perseverance; bold requests; and a prayer of faith. With her characteristic light-hearted, upbeat style, author Nancy Kennedy explores the life and prayer of each biblical character and shows how their example as found in Scripture relates to the lives of women today. Each chapter concludes with a sample prayer to give the reader a starting point for her own continued prayer. The Prayer of Deborah offersencouragement for a reader in any stage of her Christian walk, that she can approach the Father's throne of grace with the confidence of a much-loved child.
