20 Books About Prayer

books on prayer

There are few things I enjoy as much as reading books, but talking about books is definitely one of them.

Getting good book suggestions…that’s another!

So, today, I’m sharing some of my finds with you.  Maybe there are books on this list you’ve read, wanted to read, or haven’t even heard of.  I hope you enjoy browsing through my ‘bookshelf’ and sharing your thoughts.

Let me know if you read a book on prayer that you think belongs on this list!  What I’ve collected here is by no means exhaustive.  I still have prayer books on my to-be-read pile that will make it onto this list one day.

      Thanks for letting me know! I’ve changed the format a bit, but I actually can see all the books in that section. The one it seems you say is missing would be The Power of a Praying Wife, but I see both the link and image for that just fine. I’ve tried fixing it and am hoping that it shows up for others now and not just me!
