Climbing Prayer Mountain By Tim Spykstra

Prayer is our greatest privilege and source of power from God yet the most neglected. Any book that can help me strengthen my prayer life is of great interest to me. I found this book to be exactly that.
I liked how Mr. Spykstra compared prayer to exercise for the spirit. Praying should be easy but many times it is not. We struggle with fear, doubts, distractions both mental and physical, and simply giving quality time to talking with the Father.
The author’s use of spiritual greats of the Bible and their examples of prayer was unusual and helped me study the subject from a different perspective. The book is divided into 4 sections: Moses, Elijah, Jesus and Peter and John. Ten days is spent on each one, looking at their challenges and victories in prayer.
I found each one very thought provoking and a springboard for more study. I appreciated the many scriptural references included each day. At the beginning of the daily devotional is a motivating thought on prayer. Every day is a section called: Ponder Meditate and Pray. All 4 sections are followed by questions for extended study for each day.
I was impressed that the book had a full week of devotionals – 7 days – instead of the usual 5 as in most. Personally I don’t want to “take the weekend off” from daily time with the Lord.
An exceptional book you will want to read and add to your collection!
