Prayer. It always remains a mystery.

At times our prayers are vibrant and the words flow freely, rapidly, and with ease. And some days, we may feel like our prayers are in need of a defibrillator.

In her book, Pray Deep: Ignite Your Prayer Life in 21 Days, Kathryn Shirey brings suggestions on how to breathe life back into prayer. She has written a 21 day guide, filled with varied prayer methods, to ignite ones prayer life and bring us closer to God.

Kathryn writes candidly as she shares of her own experience with each method. This journal will take you through almost 20 different styles of prayer, utilizing scripture, art, writing, movement, and listening to engage different senses and styles. There are prayer prompts and room to journal each time of prayer.

Each day includes a guide for praying deep, a prayer each day from The Book of Common Prayer, prayer prompts and lined pages which leave room for your own prayers and thoughts.

There are quotes on prayer sprinkled throughout the book which deepen the reflections on prayer.

To further enhance personal prayer times, Kathryn has also put together a prayer journal.

This journal includes lined pages to record key Scriptures, prayers and answers. This is a wonderful companion to Pray Deep as it will give you a permanent record of prayer needs and God’s responses.

These two books together are a sure way to develop a meaningful prayer time. Combined they will make a beautiful gift.

“For prayer is nothing more than being on terms of friendship with God.”
~ St. Francis of Avala
