Favorite Quote: โ€œ[by using the Bible as a guide,] basically what you are doing is taking words that originated in the heart and mind of God and circulating them through your heart and mind back to God. By this means his words become the wings of your prayers.โ€

Why I Chose It: My small group is going through โ€œSpiritual Disciplines for the Christian Lifeโ€ (also by Whitney), and this book is a nice supplement on the topic of prayer.

Other Notes: This is a compact look at basing prayer on the Bible (particularly using the Psalms as a guide). It is clear, concise, and practical, and I look forward to practicing the advice and methods it suggests.
