Shaped for Prayer Enjoyment

by

How can we increase our enjoyment of prayer? 


Duty, sameness and a crisis panic button. If this sums up prayer life, how do we move beyond it to prayer as an enjoyable lifestyle? 

Can prayer become favourite enjoyment?  

How does learning to pray as Christ’s admirers upgrade our prayer joy? 

How do we grow in hunger for God, and what difference will it make to prayer life? 

In what ways can scripture shape our praying to agree with God, lift our prayer language and break new ground in prayer authority? 

How does this work in prayer groups?

These are real-life questions from many who want to pray better and enjoy it more, but aren’t sure how to make the journey. In Shaped for Prayer Enjoyment, David Macmillan draws from his experience as a church planter, Bible teacher and founder of Wingspan Prayer Training to unpack some answers. 

The book is a journey companion for followers of Christ who want to go further in the enjoyment of prayer we were designed for. It opens up a prayer growth adventure that is much too good to miss. It will: 
• Energize prayer life 
• Create desire to know, encounter and enjoy God more in prayer
• Explain the why and how-to of growing in prayer life JOY
• Give Ponder & Practise guides to help digest teaching and shape prayer lifestyle
• Provide an evergreen prayer life training resource for individuals and groups

“Do I really need another book on prayer?” was my first thought.
I am so glad I quickly dismissed that thought and made a quality decision to make an investment into my own prayer life and journey of faith.

Whether you thoroughly enjoy prayer or whether you are honest enough to admit that you don’t really enjoy it as much as you think you should, I cannot recommend this wee gem of a book highly enough. It is interspersed with personal testimony of the reality of life on the mission field and stands testimony to a life that has been transformed through both the goodness and deep dealings of the Spirit of God.

Coming from a ‘raised heart’ that has found the pathway of a life of prayer which goes way beyond mere duty, it draws the heart of the reader upwards, inspiring an increased longing for a closer and deeper walk with the Lord.

It is simple to read, yet simply profound. You certainly won’t want to rush through it. After the first reading, you will want to start right at the beginning again in order to absorb it more fully, using the practical lessons provided.

As the author rightly says, “We need constant upgrades in the way the heart expresses itself to the Lord. We can’t expect to move into a deeper identification with God’s heart as long as our praying stays at basic greeting level.”

Buy it .... you won’t regret it! It will bring fresh levels of both understanding and enjoyment to anyone who has a core hunger for more of the reality of the ‘I am with you’ presence of God.
A great investment also for building a well-equipped prayer group.
