What if prayer could become one of the most rewarding and meaningful aspects of your whole life? What if you could use the skills productive people use to help you pray?

Michael St. Pierre, executive director of the Catholic Campus Ministry Association and a productivity expert, shares five habits that you can use to help you gain confidence in your prayer and strengthen your relationship with God.

Catholics are taught that prayer is necessary to live their faith, but many sincere Mass-goers find it almost impossible to pray consistently. They know that prayer is at the core of a relationship with God, but many still don’t have a clue about how to go about integrating prayer into their everyday lives. As a result, their confidence level related to prayer is low.

St. Pierre began his own journey to prayer as a young adult, stumbling through the Rosary with uncertainty and frustration. Only when he decided to show up and do his best did he begin to build a consistent habit of prayer. After he started studying human productivity, he realized that some of the same principles could apply to the spiritual life. In his first book, The 5 Habits of Prayerful People, St. Pierre shares his unique and practical approach that will teach you how make prayer part of your everyday life.

You will learn how to cultivate the habits of:

  • passion and pursuit
  • presence
  • preparation and planning
  • persistence and perseverance
  • pondering

Written in the tone and style of a popular business book, St. Pierre shares inspirational success and instructional failure as he helps readers to stop procrastinating and unlock the doors to a fruitful conversation with God.

GOD WANTS YOU WELL!

Someone has said that prayer is not about overcoming God’s reluctance, but about laying hold of His willingness. This can also be said of healing ministry ~ it is not about overcoming God’s reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness to heal. God’s willingness is seen in His Word, where He has repeatedly revealed His desire to heal His people. The format of healing Scriptures and healing prayers is designed to help you lay hold of God’s willingness to heal you by laying hold of His Word and praying it back to Him in faith.

The Bible says that “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). The Word of God reveals the will of God, and so enables us to pray effectively. “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him” (1 John 5:14-15). Healing is the will of God for His people, as these Scriptures show, so you can pray confidently, knowing that He hears you, and that you will receive your healing. In this book you will discover:

• God’s healing words in the Old Testament
• How healing is revealed in the names of God
• Choosing life
• God’s healing words in the New Testament
• The healing ministry of Jesus
• The healing ministry of the disciples
• Life restoration stories in the Bible
• How healing is revealed in the name of Jesus
• The Lord’s Prayer as healing prayer
• The Lord’s Supper as healing prayer

This is also a great tool to help you minister healing to others.
