Description

We love our friends and family, and we long for God to be working in their lives. But when it comes to praying for them, often we don't quite know what to ask for. Or our requests to God on their behalf feel shallow, repetitive and stuck in a rut.

That's where this little book is designed to help. It will equip you to pray powerful prayers for the people you love—prayers that really change things, because they're based on God's word.

Each spread takes a passage of Scripture and suggests 5 things to pray for a person in your life. Because when we pray in line with God's priorities as found in his word, our prayers are powerful and effective (James 5 v 16)—and that's a truly thrilling prospect.

Use this book in any number of ways: work through it as part of your daily quiet time, or pick it up whenever someone you know is in particular need of prayer.

Commendations

The Puritan William Gurnall once said: ‘Prayer is nothing but the promise reversed or God’s word turned inside out and formed into an argument and retorted back again upon God by faith.’ It sounds great. But what does it look like in practice? 5 Things to Pray for the People You Love and 5 Things to Pray for Your Church answer that question. They’ll walk you through using God’s word in prayer. And praying God’s word is my number one tip to help people invigorate their prayer life. So read these books and invigorate your prayers.

Five Things is a brilliantly simple but hugely effective means of stimulating your prayer life for church, mission, family and friends. Accessible and attractive, with lots of Scripture to focus prayer, it will be a great tool for churches to help members to pray regularly and creatively

Trevor Archer

I recommend this series to you on basis of the simple fact that they moved me to pray. They both showed me ways to pray for my church and my loved ones and they kindled in my heart a <em>want<em> to pray. These are simple books, with the modest and eternally profound aim to show how the Bible informs our prayers. Rachel Jones manages the difficult work in withdrawing from the picture and leaving the reader to see how simple it is to align our prayers with the will of our listening Father. These books could well be a cause of great blessing for your church and people you love.

“Helpful”

(Review written for '5 Things to Pray for the People you Love')

A useful book for oneself or to give to praying friends. Gives helpful points and reminders of how to pray creatively in a variety of situations especially when details are not known.

“Praying the Bible”

The only problem with this book is that it wasn't written years ago. In over forty years as a parish minister I have met many Christians struggling with their prayer live and I wish that this book, and its companion title, had been available then. There are two great strengths in Rachel Jones' approach. The first is that she gets us praying. Praying teaches lessons about prayer which can never be learned by reading about it. The second is that it turns us to Scripture. "All things necessary for God's glory and our salvation, faith and life" are found in Scripture and Rachel directs us to what God teaches us about prayer. This is praying God's will.
