365 DAYS to a PRAYER-FILLED LIFE by Germaine Copeland

Book Description:  And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.  – I John 5:14-15
From the beloved author of Prayers That Avail Much® comes fresh inspiration for powerful living that will take you on a day-by-day prayer excursion toward God’s heart. 
Why does prayer matter in your day-to-day life? In a time and age where many have reduced prayer and God Himself to the “Great Vending Machine in the Sky,” Germaine stresses that the primary goal of prayer is unbroken fellowship with the eternal God of heaven and earth. 365 Days to a Prayer-Filled Life will encourage you to dig deeper and gain a stronger understanding of the purpose of prayer by unpacking core Biblical themes such as joy, unity, spiritual gifts, overcoming fear, the Holy Spirit, walking in love, and the power of words. Each day’s entry includes a Biblically informed message, a Scripture-based prayer, and a suggested Bible reading. 
For anyone who wonders if God’s Word and prayer can make a difference, and for those who long for a closer walk with God, the devotional entries in 365 Days to a Prayer-Filled Life are clear: God loves you and wants to impact every area of your life. His promises are true…and His mercies are new every morning.
My Review:  Those who are followers of Christ usually long to be in fellowship with their Savior and King.  As I began reading the book 365 DAYS to a PRAYER FILLED LIFE I realized that this isn't a book to just sit and read . . . this is a devotional book that has a page for each day of the month.  Each page has a topic, a mini devotional read, a prayer from the author that goes along with the devotional and then at the very bottom of the page there are Scripture references and a suggested Bible reading for that particular day.
This is a practical devotional book but yet the truths that are presented help the reader to look beyond himself and see that God is in control of every situation.  
This devotional book is also geared to the more serious minded Christian.  I didn't read a lot of funny or humorous make-me-laugh-at-myself-kind-of-stories but  read stories that help the reader to be blessed by the Word of God.
This book also endeavors to present prayer to the reader in a 365 day format.  Since the main topic of this book is PRAYER it seems that the devotionals all are geared to helping the reader pray everyday!
If you enjoy devotional books that in the mornings and help you to want to pray and live for the Lord then you'll want to buy this book!
This is a great 4 star devotional book for the more serious minded Christian.  It is also a small, hardback book that easily fits into a case or by bed stand.  It is a nice gift book for that person on your gift list who also enjoys mini devotionals on prayer and Christian living.
