'Living Prayer,’ by Dennis Fuqua, Deep River Books, 2012, 208 Pages, ISBN: 978-1935265993, $13.97
Vancouver, WA pastor and founder of Pastor’s Prayer Summit www.prayersummits.net, Dennis Fuqua asks, “What if, when Jesus said, ‘…this, then is how you should pray…’ He really meant it?” The answer is found in the pages of his new release, “Living Prayer.”
Twelve chapters are divided into three sections. The last segment contains 56 personal prayer samples “…based on [the author’s] understanding of the Lord’s Prayer…” also known as the “Disciples Prayer.”
Dennis begins with why prayer is important to him and the different ways prayer has shaped his life. He explains what biblical meditation is, why it’s important and why he believes this style of meditation is essential in “…learning from Jesus how to pray…”
This segment ends with “The Essence Unlimited” where he dissects the Lord’s Prayer, “…word by word and line by line…” Here, readers learn the prayer begins with a greeting followed by “seven requests” that Dennis divides in half. While the first half focuses on “…God and His desires…” the second half is about “…us and our needs…”
Dennis uses the Lord’s Prayer as a prayer pattern, one that changed his spiritual life and brought him closer to the Lord. He hopes readers will respond to his writing and be inspired to use the Lord’s Prayer to transform their prayer lives as well.
If your prayer life isn’t all you think it should be, National Day of Prayer week is a perfect time to consider transformational change with “Living Prayer.” And perhaps make time for the Seattle/King County’s Prayer Breakfast: http://www.waleadership.com/
