12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

A Realignment of Everything


As I put together the book I am writing about prayer, I came across this quote from Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey that seems to explain so much. He asks, “Why pray? I have asked myself this question almost every day of my Christian life, especially when God’s presence seems far away and I wonder if prayer is a pious form of talking to myself. I have asked it when I read theology, wondering what use there may be in repeating what God must already surely know. Prayer has become much more for me than a shopping list of requests to present to God. If has become a realignment of everything. I pray to restore the truth of the universe, to gain a glimpse of the world, and of me, through the eyes of God.”


Thank you so much for those of you who gave me your subtitles for my new book. I will be showing them to my agent today. Check out in my last post all the titles that were suggested. It will be fun to see what others posted. Here are the results of the random drawing:

Kathy Baker won the Stress Management for the New Millennium 4 CD set.

Gail Showalter won my book 12 Ways to Turn Your Pain Into Praise.

Christina Ericksen won Divine Design, 4 CD set.

I will be holding another contest soon and give you a chance to win more teaching material. Thanks so much for your participation.
