Reviews - What do customers think about On Prayer: A Letter to My Godchild?
A Great Gift or Personal Resource Nov 5, 2005
On first glance, Zagano's tome on prayer is inviting. Originally written as a letter to one of her adult godchildren, the manuscript evolved into a gift for anyone interested in further exploration of the topic of prayer. "It speaks simply about prayer-who we pray to and why, how we pray, what we pray for and about. It is not complex or technical, but, then again, neither is prayer," shares Dr. Zagano.
As a godmother myself, and one always interested in an increase in my own prayer life, I have found On Prayer: A Letter to My Godchild a wonderful resource. The author's counsel and instruction are offered in a lovingly familiar tone, truly reminiscent of a godmother wanting to share one of life's greatest treasures with her beloved godchild.
However the value of the book extends beyond that trusted connection to reach out to anyone looking to enhance their prayer relationship with God.
