Time with God: Develop Confidence & Consistency In Your Personal Prayer Life

Kevin T. Cunningham

Time with God is a 28-day journey designed to draw us closer to God by
– Focusing on the nature and character of God
– Praying with the Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, and Supplication pattern
– Praying the Scriptures
– Praying our own personal prayers.

The author writes::

Time with God is written for people who love God and long to spend time with him but need help.

Personally, I have often found it helpful to have a variety of resources available to help me stay focused during prayer. I share this not because I am a spiritual giant. Rather, I often find it such a struggle to stay focused in prayer that I have had to discover or develop tools to help.

I have found three resources, or methods, immensely helpful in developing confidence and consistency in my own prayer life. In this book, I weave all three of those methods together for a powerful combination.

At the heart of Time with God, is a desire to help develop the habit of communicating with God in practical and powerful ways. Practical, because I will balance four different aspects of prayer. Powerful, because we will use God’s Word as the basis for many of our prayers.

This book is filled with Scripture verses translated from the original languages that have been reworded into prayers. They are chosen to help us nurture and develop our focus on God and our love for him. As you get more comfortable with the concept, it will revolutionize the way you read the Bible on your own.

Here are just two sample prayers:

Adoration
Your unfailing love is better than life itself; my lips will praise you! So, I will bless you while I live. I will lift up my hands in your name.
—Modified from Psalm 63:3

Confession
Please forgive me for not allowing your love to flow through me. So often, I am not patient or kind. Forgive me for times when I envy, or brag, or am proud and seek my own way instead of what’s better for others.
—Modified from 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

What others are saying:

Endorsements
In Time with God, Kevin Cunningham takes a huge subject like prayer and creates an easy path to understand how to pray. We know we should pray. We know there is power in prayer. But, the how to of prayer is often elusive, especially because the enemy knows this is where the real Kingdom work is accomplished.

Time with God is the flesh on the bones of a spiritual discipline that we need to develop like a muscle. Mr. Cunningham creates doable exercises that help us to put words to our thoughts about God and the power of praying His will in all situations.

I’ve been swamped lately. But the amazing, calming effect in just reading the intro and first three days is…is…healing.
—Eric Barron
CEO, the Steadfast Group

This book with its outlines, Scripture paraphrases, and suggestions can help to establish a healthy pattern of prayer. I also feel like it will take some of the intimidation factor out of prayer for new believers. “How do we pray?” Here are some suggestions. And I love how they are broken down daily and weekly and re-emphasize key points. I’m really excited to go through it again more slowly.
—Gina Davis

I am very impressed with the authenticity, heart, and vision that I have seen so far, and I am looking forward to diving into the rest of it.

Many books on prayer that I’ve started just don’t resonate with me at all. This one does. Over the weekend I was eagerly telling my wife about it. Seriously…my life has been a bit crazy lately (which is another reason I need this book) but I am looking forward to continuing it!

J.R.R. Tolkien: A Life Inspired

J.R.R. Tolkien: A Life Inspired

Wyatt North

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford. His research on Beowulf is still considered a standard in the field. Tolkien, however, unlike most Oxford dons, stepped out of his role as professor to create popular literature.

Tolkien’s best-known writings were The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, in which he created a fully realized world known as Middle-earth, vaguely identifiable as Northern Europe in a pre-history that never was. To bring his world to life, he produced detailed geography and cartography as well as a legendary background. He peopled the world with diverse types of inhabitants and created spoken and written languages for them. By doing this, he essentially created modern fantasy literature and a standard for subsequent writers to chase and miss. A British poll at the end of the twentieth century named The Lord of the Rings the most important English-language work of that century.

During his lifetime, Tolkien did not appreciate people focusing on him rather than on his writings. He felt that his writings were more worthy of attention. With apologies to the late gentleman, he is now due some notice.

Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking through Suffering Together

Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking through Suffering Together

Kara Tippetts

Kara Tippetts’s story was not a story of disease, although she lost her battle with terminal cancer. It was not a story of saying goodbye, although she was intentional in her time with her husband and four children. Kara’s story was one of seeing God in the hard and in the good. It was one of finding grace in the everyday. And it was one of knowing “God with us” through fierce and beautiful friendship.

In Just Show Up, Kara and her close friend, Jill Lynn Buteyn, write about what friendship looks like in the midst of changing life seasons, loads of laundry, and even cancer. Whether you are eager to be present to someone going through a difficult time or simply want inspiration for pursuing friends in a new way, this eloquent and practical book explores the gift of silence, the art of receiving, and what it means to just show up.

The late Kara Tippetts was the author of The Hardest Peace and blogged faithfully at mundanefaithfulness.com. Cancer was only a part of Kara’s story. Her real fight was to truly live while facing a crushing reality. Since her death in March 2015, her husband, Jason, is parenting their four children and leading the church they founded in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Jill Lynn Buteyn lives in Colorado with her husband and two children. She has a bachelor’s degree in communications from Bethel University. In 2013, she won the ACFW Genesis award for her inspirational novel, Falling for Texas (written as Jill Lynn).

Depression: Looking Up from the Stubborn Darkness

Depression: Looking Up from the Stubborn Darkness

Edward T. Welch

Where Is God in the Struggle?

Looking away from despair towards hope can feel risky. What if God doesn’t come through for you? What if you don’t feel instantly better? Instead of offering simple platitudes or unrealistic “cure-all” formulas, Edward T. Welch addresses the complex nature of depression with compassion and insight, applying the rich treasures of the gospel, and giving fresh hope to those who struggle. Originally published as Depression: A Stubborn Darkness—Light for the Path, this new edition is updated with added content.


“I cannot overstate the importance, timeliness, and helpfulness of this book. Ed has given us the wisdom that only comes from a heart shaped by the gospel and a deep compassion for people, generated by the love of Jesus. This is a must read and a must share.”
Scotty Smith, Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church; author of The Reign of Grace and Objects of His Affection

“An all-too-rare combination of gospel understanding, biblical wisdom, personal empathy and long counseling experience shines through these pages. What is most needed is a course of divinely prescribed anti-depressants. Like a skilled spiritual pharmacist, Ed Welch fills that prescription for us.”
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.; theologian; author of The Christian Life

“I have come to rely on Ed Welch and others at CCEF for guidance and insight in better understanding the issues of the soul that plague many people today. For those who want to address more than just the symptoms of depression, Ed’s counsel is invaluable.”
Bob Lepine, Co-Host, FamilyLife Today

Awe: Why It Matters for Everything We Think, Say, and Do

Paul David Tripp

Humans are hardwired for awe.

Our hearts are always captured by something—that’s how God made us. But sin threatens to distract us from the glory of our Creator. All too often, we stand in awe of everything but God.

Uncovering the lies we believe about all the earthly things that promise us peace, life, and contentment, Paul Tripp redirects our gaze to God’s awe-inducing glory—showing how such a vision has the potential to impact our every thought, word, and deed.

Wedded to War (Heroines Behind the Lines Book 1)

Wedded to War (Heroines Behind the Lines Book 1)

Jocelyn Green

*2013 Christy Award Finalist (Historical Fiction and First Novel categories)

It’s April 1861, and the Union Army’s Medical Department is a disaster, completely unprepared for the magnitude of war. A small group of New York City women, including 28-year-old Charlotte Waverly, decide to do something about it, and end up changing the course of the war, despite criticism, ridicule and social ostracism. Charlotte leaves a life of privilege, wealth-and confining expectations-to be one of the first female nurses for the Union Army. She quickly discovers that she’s fighting more than just the Rebellion by working in the hospitals. Corruption, harassment, and opposition from Northern doctors threaten to push her out of her new role. At the same time, her sweetheart disapproves of her shocking strength and independence, forcing her to make an impossible decision: Will she choose love and marriage, or duty to a cause that seems to be losing? An Irish immigrant named Ruby O’Flannery, who turns to the unthinkable in the face of starvation, holds the secret that will unlock the door to Charlotte’s future. But will the rich and poor confide in each other in time?

Wedded to War is a work of fiction, but the story is inspired by the true life of Civil War nurse Georgeanna Woolsey. Woolsey’s letters and journals, written over 150 years ago, offer a thorough look of what pioneering nurses endured.

Jocelyn Green’s debut novel is endorsed by historians and professors for its historical accuracy and detail, by award-winning novelists for its spell-binding storytelling, and by entertainment journalists and book club leaders for its deep and complex content, perfect to share and discuss with others.

Lancaster Burning Trilogy

Lancaster Burning Trilogy

Linda Byler

The Amish community of Lancaster is being terrorized by barn fires. David and Malinda Beiler’s barn was the first to go. When a second Amish barn burns for suspicious reasons, the Amish grow more restless. Can Sarah, David and Malinda’s daughter, end the terror that is pulling apart their community, even as her own heart is pulled between two young men?

Fire in the Night, Book 1: Sarah observes her parents’ agony after their barn burns to the ground, apparently by an arsonist. Not only is she afraid, and wishing she could protect her parents, she’s entranced by the flirtatious Matthew Stoltzfus. He’s dating her friend Rose, but when he tenderly bandages Sarah’s hand after she burned it at the barn raising, she wonders whom he’s really interested in.

Davey’s Daughter, Book 2: Sarah thinks Ashley, whom she’s met at the local farmers market, knows more about the fires than she will admit. But Sarah can’t convince her to share her secrets. Should the Amish finally resort to police protection? Matthew is asking if the Amish church is the right fit for him. Will Sarah follow him if he decides to leave the community? Sarah’s mother urges her to pay more attention to handsome newcomer Lee, the hardworking Amish man who helps anyone in the community in need. How will Sarah respond to all of the forces that are pulling her in different directions?

The Witnesses, Book 3: When Sarah spots flames late one night in the widow Lydia’s barn, she refuses to let the fire win. She gets the horses out just in time, but not before a beam explodes overhead, knocking her to the ground as the barn rages in flames all around her. Gone were her lovely good looks, her life as a teacher, and perhaps the attention of the two young men who had been so drawn to her.
