Reviews - What do customers think about Conversation With God?
Silence is Golden Feb 11, 2010
Upon the recommendation of our pastor, I explored Conversation with God along with my church mentor and just finished leading a lesson to our men's group about what we discovered. I am very impressed with the clarity with which Ogilvie discusses the different dimensions of prayer and the need for silence so that we may listen to what God has to say, whether through scripture or directly through the Holy Spirit.
Ogilvie starts by reminding us that it is God who begins the conversation. He longs for a deep relationship with us and therefore calls us to prayer. If we shut Him out, then it is impossible to know His will for us. Take the time to listen and reflect and you will feel His joy for you and experience the true Grace that comes with knowing God.
From Preparation to Praise, Confession to Thanksgiving, Silence to Intercession and Supplication, and finishing with Guidance and Commitment (9 Prayer Dimensions), Ogilvie teaches what has been revealed to him throughout his prayer-focused life, especially God's purpose for prayer and how important it is to let Him into the conversation. He then leads the reader through 30 days of reflective prayer using scripture as our inspiration. Each day has a theme such as joy, grace or God's loving kindness. He begins each dimension with verses from scripture to listen and reflect, then leaves it to the reader to follow-up with either an open or directed prayer.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to further their relationship with God, especially if you feel your prayer life has become stagnant or unfulfilling.
Great resource when you want to get serious about your faith... Jul 13, 2009
I have purchased several of these books to share with family and friends. The first chapters give such a great understanding of the how to's, relevance and effectiveness of sincere prayer. Then there are 30 days of "sample prayers" which can be repeated indefinitely throughout the year, which incorporate scripture, making this the ultimate in "efficient quiet time" --praying and reading great Bible passages simultaneously. Enjoy!
Personal prayer Jul 27, 2007
Prayer can be a life changing event. Dr. Ogilvie really explains the life style of Prayer and praising God. Prayer is more than a list of gimmes, it is also praising God and telling Him of your love for Him.
