Review: Women Who Move Mountains by:Sue Detweiler

 Women Who Move Mountains: Praying with Confidence, Boldness, and Grace
About the Book:
Infuse Your World--and Your Heart--with God's Life-Giving Power
Amid our packed schedules and life's curveballs, our hearts long for more. We want to live and love well; we want to be a source of joy and life. The good news is that you can--and the secret is found in the simple act of prayer.
Prayer was never meant to be a recitation of requests, but rather a drawing close to the heart of God. When you learn to exchange the obstacles of life for the promises of God, you will pray with passion and confidence rather than fear or insecurity. From this place of surrender and intimacy, you will discover what it means to become a powerful, effective woman of prayer--a woman whose life overflows with springs of living water that transform not only her own life, but the world around her.
With study questions and journaling exercises included, this is the perfect book to go deeper either on your own or with a group.


My Review:
 I think prayer gets a bad rap, these days. Prayer is something that can move mountains. And we as wives, mothers, sisters, friends seem to have a keep awareness of this fact. It is like God made us to not just know this but to really "know" that we can really be brave warriors and fill that gap between Him and our loved ones.

 Prayer is our one on one conversation with our Creator. He relishes this time with us and we should do the same by Him. It is not just a time for me to ask Him for things but a time for me to tell Him about my day and for me to give Him the praises He deserves. We can't let our life get so bombarded with well, life that we forget all about Him. This is a way to show Him we haven't.

 A great book for individual Bible study or a group study.
