I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I requested Pray A to Z from Litfuse Publicity Group to read and review. I was pleasantly surprised. This small paperback book is full of prayers listed alphabetically, but it isn't just 26 prayers. There is more than one prayer for each letter of the of the alphabet, and the topics are listed clearly at the beginning of the book.
Each topical prayer fills one page of the book. It begins with a Scripture, a note of who you are praying for, and closes with a written prayer. You can pray the provided prayer word-for-word or use it as a launching pad for your own prayer.
The prayers are written broadly, so you could make it a blanket prayer for strangers within your community, but they also can be easily personalized to pray for specific individuals. I did this with the prayer for pregnancy, praying specifically for my daughter and another woman in my church.
There are topics in this book that I would never have thought to pray for. I think this works best when prayed through from start to finish, in order, as a systematic approach to changing your community. But, when God lays a specific need on your heart, you can also flip right to that prayer and lift it up to God.
I mostly see this book as a training tool. I can't imagine anyone not being changed as they pray through this book, and not being inspired to personalize these prayers. So let the book be used as a starting point, an inspiration, a checklist of needs ... and then let the Holy Spirit work through you as you become a prayer warrior for your community.
