Author:  Amelia Rhodes
Publisher:  Worthy Inspired
Release Date:  November 15, 2016
Genre: Christian Living / Non-Fiction




Change the world one prayer at a time.

How would our community change if instead of absently saying, "I'll pray for you," we actually did pray---deeply, intensely, and purposefully?


Pray A to Z: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Community will help you topically organize your prayer requests and lay the burdens of your community at the feet of our Heavenly Father.


With compassion and encouragement, Amelia Rhodes offers Bible verses and prayer prompts, organized topically for every letter of the alphabet. There are five topics per letter---three prayers of petition asking God to work in a certain area of need, and two more prayers of praise to reflect gratitude for God's presence in the daily issues and relationships of life. Through petition and praise, your specific, focused communion with God will lighten your heart as you place the heaviness of those prayer requests where they belong---on His strong shoulders.


Whether you are praying for a friend's adoption journey, a neighbor's bankruptcy, or a family member's cancer, this book will give you Bible verses, prayer prompts, and prayer starts to guide you through praying for even the most difficult issues that affect the people you know and love. Perfect for either individual or group prayer, Pray A to Z will help you experience the peace that comes from communicating with God.






Pray A to Z by Amelia Rhodes is a practical guide to pray for your community, as well as a devotional piece to focus on certain aspects from abuse to jealousy to love. With five topics for each letter of the alphabet, this handy dandy prayer list of topics to focus on will be sure to help even seasoned prayer warriors.

It starts with a focus topic, then a biblical verse, what to pray for and a sample prayer, all on one page for topic.  Easy to read, to understand and along with the biblical verse for reference, Pray A to Z may guide you towards praying and caring for others in your community.  In all, a guide for any one who just needs little guidance, or who are short on time or simply just something to refer to.
