My Kindle book 1/2 price for one week!

Improve your prayer life

I’m running a Kindle deal on my book: LORD, IT’S BORING IN MY PRAYER CLOSET (How to Revitalize Your Prayer Life)!                          

It’s 1/2 price ($2.99) on Amazon.com from today, Sunday, August 18th, until next Saturday, August 24th.

I hear more and more Christians saying how difficult prayer has become and I know personally that is true! If your prayer life is stagnant–grab a friend and agree to pray together on a regular basis; start a small prayer group in you home once a week; or do a  group study together on prayer, using my book or another one on prayer.

I have a small group of ladies that I pray with every week and another once-a- month where husbands are included. Praying  together does so much to encourage me in my prayer life!

So grab your Kindle edition at 1/2 price, or a paperback copy is also available at Amazon. (I recommend the paperback copy for a group study.)

Lord, It’s Boring in My Prayer Closet online class

 Come join us as we learn, share & discuss together ways to improve our prayer lives!

I’ll be teaching an online 5-week class with BeADisciple.com beginning July 8th on the topic of PRAYER. It’s based on my book, LORD, ITS BORING IN MY PRAYER CLOSET (How to Revitalize Your Prayer Life)

“Go deeper in your prayer life in this 5-week course. Based on a book by the same title, this course is taught by the author Sandra Chambers. In her book, Sandra shares her own struggles and victories as she has sought to overcome boredom in prayer and answer the question: “If prayer is so important, why is it so hard?” During this five-week study, participants will examine their own prayer life and be challenged to see and experience prayer in some new ways. Emphasis is on putting into practice what you are learning about prayer.”

Freedom in Fasting

A fast that God approves

Many churches and individuals begin the New Year with a 21-day Daniel Fast. My church has done it for the past several years and I have participated in many of them. Last year I did not because I dreaded facing weeks of preparation reading labels, spending extra money on appropriate food items, looking for recipes that were Daniel-fast approved, etc. etc. etc.

(In 2016 I wrote a post about why this approach to fasting was troubling to me—see the link below to read that post). Continue reading

Praying God-Inspired Prayers

Bible and cup of coffeeOften our prayer time can feel more like a burden than a joy. In fact, it can be downright boring! Perhaps it’s because we’re going to God with our grocery list of needs and wants instead of listening to what God wants us to pray.

Joyce Meyer, in her book Hearing from God Each Morning says:

I think one of the reasons we sometimes feel unfulfilled in prayer or sense that we are not finished praying about a matter is that we spend so much time just praying our prayers. But—there is a better, higher, more effective way to pray: praying God’s prayers. To be honest with you, if I am praying my prayer, I can pray about something for fifteen minutes and still feel unfinished; but if I am being led by the Holy Spirit and praying God’s prayer, I can pray two sentences and feel completely satisfied.
