I received this book from Blogging for Books for reviewing. All opinions are my own.
Prayer is one of the most challenging things in any relationship with God. There are misconceptions that it has to be long and boring or just reciting the same words to God over and over. But prayer is more than that. For any Christian, seasoned or new, prayer can be completely foreign but it’s time we start focusing on it.
Throughout Talking with God, Adam Weber introduces prayer to people who may not have any experience with it. Something I liked is that he reassures everyone to not feel ashamed that they’re just starting to pray more. This helps put you at ease and focuses you to pray for a relationship, instead of doing it out of guilt.
Weber goes by steps and eases you into the idea of prayer. He uses anecdotes of his life to better explain his reasoning, which most happen to be really funny. These help and make the book livelier, which in return, helps bring up the point that prayers shouldn’t be dull and boring. Prayer needs to be conversations with God as we would have with a best friend.
The book wasn’t daunting and was clear, simple, and to the point. It definitely helped ease my anxiety about prayer and gave real practical prayer advice you can apply to your life immediately.
If you want to start praying or just want to learn something new, Talking with God is a good and quick read that is sure to help.
