The Joy of Always Getting Your
by Graham Cooke
CRAFTED PRAYER is an interactive journal that redefines the discipline of prayer. Graham Cooke encourages us to return to the examples of prayer set by heroes of Scripture like David and Paul by asking God what He would want us to pray concerning the the issues surrounding our lives. Then, with that confidence, begin to pray believing that we will receive the things we ask for as Jesus promised in Matthew 21:22.
The general habit has become to rush into prayer without much thought, either demandingly or tentatively, with many words and very little listening for what God has to say regarding the situation. When we acknowledge God's presence and trust what He has promised us in His Word, we began to build an intimate relationship with Him where faith can replace fear and anxiety.
This little book is filled with scripture for meditation, exercises to hone your ability to hear God's direction for you, and a list of questions to ask God once you have entered His presence with thanksgiving. Cooke says, "Too many intercessors have become exhausted and too burned out to continue praying the way the Church has been advocating."
This book is refreshment for the soul!
