Talking with God
About the Book:
Life is crazy. Prayer is simple.
Prayer seems like it should be so simple. Yet when it comes to actually praying, it often feels awkward and complicated.
I mean, what should you actually pray about? What do you say? Is there anything you should or shouldn’t say? Do you have to speak out loud? Where do you even start?
To make matters worse, we’ve heard about prayer for so long that we feel awkward asking about it. It’s like having to ask a person’s name after knowing them for years. We’re embarrassed to ask because we really should know their name by now.
Then comes the reality and craziness of life. Between work, parenting, walking the dog, a full inbox, keeping up on social media—who has time to pray?
The truth is, prayer is simple.
It’s like talking; talking with a good friend. Here’s the best part: No matter where we are in life, God can’t wait to talk with us.
What does it look like to pray in the midst of your life?
What do you say when you don’t know how to pray?
I’m asking the same questions. Let’s talk.

I have always been afraid of praying out loud. Afraid that I won’t say the right thing or that I might sound stupid. I would pray to myself or just not speak and let God hear what’s on my heart. When I was given the chance to read Adam Weber’s book, Talking with God: What to Say When You Don’t Know How to Pray, I knew this book was for me. Talking with God really opened my eyes and I learned that praying is like having a conversation. Just like that, it hit me. What have I been so scared about? Prayer is just having an open and honest conversation with God. Just like I have a conversation with my husband, kids or best friend, I can have that same conversation with God.
I feel a lot better about praying out loud now. I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you don’t know how to pray or do know how. This book is a real eye opener.
I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required of me, all opinions expressed here are my own.
