Kathi Lipp’s newest book, Praying God’s Word for Your Life, addresses every one of these circumstances…and so many more!
You pray for others–but are you forgetting to pray for yourself?
Many of us find it easy to pray for the concerns and well-being of others. But when it comes to praying for ourselves, we may wonder
- Should I pray for my own needs?
- Are any prayers too big or too small?
- Are my prayers selfish?
- Does praying really make a difference?
Praying God’s Word for Your Life gives us the direction and Scripture we need to bring purpose and power to our prayers.
In her warm, approachable style, Kathi shares more than one hundred specific prayers for our lives, relationships, worries, mistakes, faith, and more. The simple strategies Kathi reveals will help each of us create a habit of praying with renewed boldness, consistency, and expectation.
