Book Review: The Prayer God Loves to Answer


An excellent new book by Daniel HendersonThe Prayer God Loves to Answer: Accessing Christ's Wisdom for Your Greatest Needs provides a great view of prayer for Christians in every stage of like. Anyone who is struggling to live in a chaotic, broken, world. He uses his pastoral wisdom to help those of us that feel we are stuck in our prayer life. 

What I love most about this wonderful little book is that Henderson does an incredible job of making a difficult topic, easy to understand. He is down to earth, simple to understand, and doesn't feel preachy or condescending. The book reads very well and the flow will keep you engaged.

This book will force you examine yourself and look into areas that many need to work on. In my opinion, the biggest thing that was emphasized in this book is how important wisdom from God and his word is. This book is filled with scripture that will have you diving deep into your bible and putting some of that knowledge to work.

I rather enjoyed learning about the various characters in the Bible, they all had struggles and obstacles they faced just like you and I. However God did answer their prayers and was able to use them in ways that were compelling and life changing. The Bible shows us that he can do the same for each and every one of us. 

Overall this book is ideal for any Christian who wants to grow in their relationship with God. Anyone who wants to become stronger in prayer. Anyone who is seeking wisdom as well as guidance. This isn't a book you will read in a day. This is a book that you will slowly digest and take in.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Goodreads Description:

Should I take that new job? How can I be a better parent? Who should I marry? How can I make ends meet? We all face challenging questions that keep us up at night, and we don't know who to turn to for answers, or even if there's anyone at all who can help. It turns out there is--the very God who created you. 
Everyone needs God's wisdom to navigate the complexities of life and manage responsibilities, difficulties, and relationships. Jesus Christ, the source of all wisdom and knowledge, has not called us to figure these things out for ourselves--he is ready to give us his perfect wisdom as we seek him in prayer. 

In this book, Daniel Henderson shares a Gospel-centered approach to living wisely in a broken world. He gives you practical steps for praying to receive answers in the midst of our confusion and uncertainty as well as questions for group discussion. There is no question you can ask that God can't answer. He's just waiting for you to ask. 

Includes practical prayer guide and questions for group discussion
