Stormie Omartian has led millions to pray—parents, wives, husbands, women, teens, and kids. Each of her bestselling books have opened up the mystery of prayer and helped readers approach God with confidence and experience His power. With transparency and biblical depth, Stormie shares in a 30-day format what it means for women to connect with God deeply through every circumstance that presents itself.
With warmth and wisdom, Stormie helps readers understand how they can make their life work—with prayer. This book is for everyone who wants to:
  • live free of guilt and fear
  • experience and share forgiveness
  • stand strong in the face of temptation
  • know God’s love
  • grow in faith, and much more
In 30 short chapters, one a day, Stormie helps women find the freedom, wholeness, and success they want as they discover the simple steps to powerful prayer.

Formerly titled The Power of a Praying® Life

 My reflections:

Who doesn't love Omartian books? Her books are always packed with prayer, and are informative, encouraging and uplifting. When I had the chance to review this book I was excited to have the opportunity to read another Omartian book (I own Power of a praying wife, Husband and parent)

The first thing I enjoyed about this book was its ample range of topics, it was so well thought out and complete that after reading it I felt ready to tackle a task I often found intimidating……public…

Some of the topics in the book include:

 Know who your father is, 
Welcome the Holy Spirit’s presence, 
Maintain a right heart, 
Fear God but don’t live in fear, and
Live in the freedom God has for you and take control of your thoughts.

I absolutely love the way Stormie Omartian writes, It often feels to me like she knows me and we are just sitting down to tea, on the back porch. 

She gets down to work, no beating around the bush here. Her book is very meaty, and took some time to digest and process. So don't be surprised if it takes you more than 30 days to become that prayer warrior, you are aspiring to.  :-) 

I think my favorite parts of this book were the prayer Power and Word Power sections. Every chapter has these and I found it was a great way to dig a little deeper into the Bible and it also gave me “pretty” words to pray, for the issues I was working on!

I would definitely recommend this book and all of Stormie Omartian’s works to anyone who wants to deepen their prayer life and ultimately their relationship with God and those around them. 

Great work Omartian, Thank you for helping change lives, one book at a time!

I recieved this book complimentrary from Harvest House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
Thank you so much Harvest House!
