Overview
With an enthusiastic invitation to use her book as an interactive guide to deepen the reader?s prayer, Debbie Williams sets out to redirect the focus from us to God, who is divine, and who can accomplish all things. Using the acronym PRAY for Praise, Repent, Ask, and Yield, she encourages a study of God?s attributes with an A-Z exploration which ranges from Almighty to Zealous God. Each chapter reveals more of who God is and how He alone is capable to meet our every need as we recognize who He truly is.

Community Description
Williams (Prayers of My Heart) transforms the firefighter's motto of "stop, drop and roll" to "stop, drop, and pray" as she summons Christian women to a deeper relationship with Christ. She says that if a woman wants to break out of spiritual apathy, she must first recognize the danger and stop, then drop to her knees and pray. The gimmicks don't stop there: Williams unpacks the word PRAY into an acronym for four steps of prayer itself. Believers should Praise God, Repent and confess sins, Ask for help and Yield to God's will. The majority of Williams's text is a meatier-than-expected A to Z devotional emphasizing the myriad qualities of God. Each alphabetical entry includes a scripture verse, a brief prayer of summation, an in-depth yet succinct study of the specific attribute, a meditation moment and an invitation to interact in journal form. Williams looks at God as a vine dresser, nourishing the soul; as an empowerer who strengthens believers; and as an equitable judge. Leaders' guide materials delve into deeper questions, and at-a-glance A to Z reference charts add value. Despite some superficial attention-grabbing devices in the early pages, this is a satisfactory devotional primer. (Jan. 3) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Being In Prayer  Dec 7, 2007
Pray With Purpose is the most comprehensive and complete group Prayer guide I have encountered in the past 35 years. Individual or small group - it was excellent.
 
Living with Passion for Christ, who is Light, Life...  Apr 29, 2007
PRAY WITH PURPOSE, LIVE WITH PASSION: HOW PRAISING GOD A TO Z WILL TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE exceeded my expectations. I checked this book out of the library, then got sidetracked from reading it, then raced to read it (in a day) before it was due, and now see I need to buy my own copy, it is that good.

Author Debbie Williams frames this devotional book in thirty-one chapters, twenty-six of which cover a wide span of attributes of God, one for each letter of our English alphabet, from the Almighty to Zealous God. She writes as a mature, tried Christian, one whose own personal walk with God is deep and rich. This comes through in the humble style in which the book is written, and I felt when reading it that God was giving me a precious gift through the author, through the book, for He, Himself is honored, exalted, glorified on every page, which in turn encourages and guides the reader in deepening their own walk with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The author shows great reverence in her handling of the written Word of God, including by frequently referring to the Hebrew and Greek forms of words drawn from the translation she uses (primarily the New American Standard Bible). I would prefer that she had used the Authorized King James Version: with all its flaws, I have settled on it above all others, but not to the exclusion of all others.

My own study of the Bible is in its fourth decade now; nevertheless, the author has pulled quite a few nuggets out of scriptures that seem new to me. For example, in the chapter on "Light" (as an attribute of God), she goes to the scriptural account of Lazarus in John 11, and reminds that when Lazarus' family called for Jesus to come, His disciples reminded him that Judea was a place where people had tried to kill Jesus. She talks of being in a quandary when making a decision, and our need for God, who is Light, to guide our way, and focuses on verses 9 and 10, and the rich meaning therein: the last time I studied that passage, I was drawn so much into verse 11 that I almost missed the two preceding verses, which seem so relevant at this time.

In fact, the book seems relevant throughout. In the chapter on "Wonderful," the author reminds that as Christians we are meant to live lives that are extraordinary, peculiar, that provide place for God to manifest Himself, His glory. In the final chapter, "Zealous" she notes that God, who has transferred us to His kingdom, is both zealous and jealous for us. She says, "God desires to carve away any lingering habits that reflect the kingdom of darkness from which He rescued us." The effects and aftereffects of Satan's kingdom -- the world, the flesh, the devil -- can became deeply sifted into our lives, so much so that only the Word of God, with the power to split asunder soul and spirit (Heb. 4:12), can cleanse us from such unrighteousness, through the washing of the water by the word (Eph. 5:26).

Yet today, I plan to buy this book and the author's PRAYERS OF MY HEART prayer journal and enter into a season of going through them as aids in my daily devotions, probably over and over for some months to come. She provides useful appendices for delving into deeper study and for group study, and I expect to make use of those too. I also like her A to Z framing of (some of) God's attributes, and plan to use those with instilling the alphabet in my homeschooled grandchildren.

I think the entirety of the book can best be summed up in the author's own words about the importance of obedience to God (yielding to His quickening of our understanding): "...prayer involves more than just speaking to God; it also involves yielding to His voice...those who live passionately for Christ not only speak to God but also listen to Him. They yield their hearts and wills to His voice" (p. 45).
 
great study book  Aug 28, 2006
We purchased this book for a study-prayer group and seems to be just what we wanted. Talks "to" you, not "at" you. It holds your interest and leads to great discussions.
 
Pray with Purpose Live with Passion  Mar 1, 2006
I found this title as a library book. God is speaking to me so clearly about my own life, that I have to own this book. It seems each page has further direction relavant to me. As a recent widow, I am looking for God's direction as never before.
 
A refreshing devotional guide to prayer  Feb 13, 2006
Debbie Williams inspires her readers to focus on the attributes of God from A to Z in Pray With Purpose, Live With Passion. For example, "A" represents Almighty from Psalm 91:1, "He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty," demonstrating that when we are weak, our power and strength is in the Lord. But Williams doesn't stop there. She recounts God's revelation of His praiseworthy characteristics in the Bible, encourages personal growth in that area, and provides examples of how to pray with understanding of the attribute.

Consisting of two main sections, Pray With Purpose delves into an elegant method for God-honoring prayer, using the acronym P-R-A-Y in part one, and contains A to Z mini-chapters in part two. The attribute chapters begin with a Scripture and prayer, and follow with William's study of it, a meditation moment, and a prayer action to take. As such, the book can be used easily as a devotional guide to prayer.

It's refreshing to read about giving honor and submitting to our Lord as a means of fulfillment, as opposed to teaching that strives after what we can get from Him. After reading many books on prayer, this book is not an academic look at prayer, instead it provides a practical basis for deepening one's prayer life, and ultimately living passionately for Him.

If you are looking for biblically sound ideas to spark your prayer life, but not rote prayers for reciting, Pray With Purpose, Live With Passion will be a valuable addition to your library. - Anne Walker, Christian Book Previews.com
