"The best thing was the plan for prayer. Many times we just randomly start our prayers without planning and following some order. I feel am getting closer to God and that the plan gives me time to prepare for my encounter with God."

Hi, I'm Kathryn Shirey!
I KNOW WHAT IT IS TO STRUGGLE WITH PRAYER, YET LONG FOR IT TO MAKE A MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE.
I struggled with prayer most of my life. Not knowing if I was doing it 'right'. Wondering why God wasn't answering my prayers (at least in the way I wanted him to). Intimidated to pray aloud with others. Inconsistent, at best, with my prayer life.
Until I decided to give prayer a real chance - because it was the only option I had left. In those prayers, I met God personally and discovered the true power of prayer and surrendering to God's answers.
Ever since, I have been on a journey to explore prayer, learning new ways to pray and seeking to go deeper with God through prayer.
WILL YOU JOIN ME ON THE JOURNEY TO A DEEPER PRAYER LIFE?
Let's discover prayer that makes a difference in your life, faith that goes beyond Sunday morning. Together, let's learn new ways to pray and explore how to pray deeper. Through prayer, learn to trust God fully and step into all his possibilities for your life!

"I absolutely enjoyed all of the varied options for prayer in The Prayer Toolbox. There were prayer ideas that I had never thought of, and those I had never considered as being prayer. I believe that using some or many of these ideas will help my prayer life by giving new options and keeping things exciting and fresh."

When it’s time to re-energize or change my daily prayer time, this toolbox will help me put together my new daily prayer plan."
