Praying with Purpose: A Review of the Book by Deborah Haddix

A review of a new book that will help you grow your prayer life!

I recently had the privilege of reviewing the new book Praying with Purpose by Deborah Haddix (Warner Press, 2018).  This is an encouraging and challenging book that I would recommend to anyone who wants to grow his/her prayer life.




This book is divided into three parts. The first part lays the foundation for growing your prayer life. In this section, Haddix challenges us to recognize that prayer is our most powerful tool and encourages us to become more intentional in our prayers.


Part two suggests several tools to help increase our prayer lives. I absolutely loved the ideas in this section, as I am one who firmly believes that our prayer time does not need to be stagnant.


In fact, I believe that God wants us to be creative and to come to Him in ways that fit our personality and communication styles, and Part Two is packed full of creative ways to do just that!


Part Three, then, is an excellent resource full of specific ideas and Scriptures to use as you pray for people such as your spouse, future mate, pastor, and children/grandchildren.


Praying with Purpose is a practical book written in a down-to-earth, friendly style. The author’s love for Christ and desire to help others grow in their relationship with Christ is evident throughout the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to grow his/her prayer life.
