My Thoughts

I had heard a lot about "Pray A to Z" and had seen the cards that Amelia Rhodes had shared online, so I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. The book gives you 5 topics for each letter of the alphabet. The first 3 are petitions about areas that you may encounter in your life or those of people around you. The last 2 topics are ways to praise God for who He is. Each topic gives a Bible verse and an explanation of the topic and are followed with a prayer which is intended as a springboard to your own personal prayer on the topic. I liked how Amelia Rhodes gives a "How to use this book" section in the front of the book. Some of these topics I would never have thought of as things to pray for. I like the book as a platform to build off of to improve my prayer life.

My copy of the book has pages 49-96 repeated upside down between pages 48 and 49. I think it was just a fluke as I have not seen anyone else with the same problem. It isn't that big of a deal because all the pages are there in the correct order and these are just duplicates.

Pray A to Z: Practical Guide to Pray for Your Community (Worthy, November 2016)
Change the world one prayer at a time.
How would our community change if instead of absently saying, “I’ll pray for you,” we actually did pray–deeply, intensely, and purposefully?
Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Community will help you topically organize your prayer requests and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father.
With compassion and encouragement, Amelia Rhodes offers Bible verses and prayer prompts, organized topically for every letter of the alphabet. There are five topics per letter–three prayers of petition asking God to work in a certain area of need, and two more prayers of praise to reflect gratitude for God’s presence in the daily issues and relationships of life. Through petition and praise, your specific, focused communion with God will lighten your heart as you place the heaviness of those prayer requests where they belong–on His strong shoulders.
Whether you are praying for a friend’s adoption journey, a neighbor’s bankruptcy, or a family member’s cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.
