Prayer Resources: Practical Prayer

Sacred Chaos: Spiritual Disciplines for the Life You Have,
by Tricia McCary Rhodes
When you can't escape to the mountains or the ocean to pray alone, read this book for practical real-life advice on prayer and spiritual growth in the midst of your everyday life. This is an excellent book for a new Christian, or a refreshing and encouraging book for an experienced Christian. In addition to the ideas for prayer within your daily chaos, it includes ideas for an hour of solitary prayer and a 1 day prayer retreat. A few discussion questions, many application ideas. 22 chapters, 183 pages, at Amazon.

Busy Mom’s Guide to Prayer, by Lisa Whelchel
This is a “guided prayer journal” to keep on your nightstand, in your purse or near your bathtub. This 20 day collection of prayers and scriptures will focus your prayers for yourself, your husband, your children, and many other people in your life. You’ll pray for your in-laws, the President, your neighbors, your own roles and responsibilities, and much more. I used this book when I had an infant and a 3 year old--it was so helpful when I was tired to have this book giving me words to pray! 201 pages, at Amazon.

Do you have a favorite book that helped you make prayer a part of your everyday life? Please leave me a comment.
