From the Back Cover
This 60-day prayer experience can change a woman's life forever. Sixty influential Christian women---such as author Liz Curtis Higgs; author Ruth Graham, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham; singer and songwriter Babby Mason; and author Kay Warren, wife of Pastor Rick Warren--- share how their lives have changed. This book can be used by itself as a daily devotional. However, if women read through Praying for Purpose for Women as a devotional while reading Pathway to Purpose for Women, their whole experience will be deepened and solidified.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The ultimate value in Katie Brazelton's Praying for Purpose is that it engages us in what is arguably one of the most critical disciplines of a Christian's life--prayer. The prayer-per-day format is convenient and provides structure for what can sometimes become an aimless and wandering effort to pray through to an answer from God on a particular topic in our lives. Each day's reading begins with an introduction; provides a modern-day example of a woman who has triumphed, or not, in that day's topic of discussion, includes a targeted question designed to spark honest thought and ends with a short vignette related to a person in the Bible. Finally, the reader is left with a scripture reference to ponder, guided through a prayer and encouraged to identify an insight or action step resulting from that day's reading.
Perhaps including more examples of single women would broaden the appeal, but the stories of contemporary and biblical people who faced the same issues we do today can comfort any woman who may feel alone in her pursuit of purpose, and the confusion and uncertainty which often accompany that pursuit. The questions and space to list action items moves us from inward reflection to outward behavior.
Added bonuses are the special format and activity for Day 60, the classification exercise in Part Two, and the concluding activity which invites each woman to solicit feedback from a trusted friend regarding her responses to all the questions for each day's reading. What a treat!
Praying for Purpose is certainly worth the price on its own, but is even more valuable as a companion volume to the foundational book-Pathway to Purpose(TM) for Women. If read thoughtfully and interacted with honestly, this book will indeed change your life by getting you that much closer to seeing His purpose for your life.
Well, that is what it is like when you read Katie's books on finding your purpose in Christ and life.
You will love the way she asks questions, shares examples, and stories of real life woman that have walked that path and are moving towards God's purpose.
The days are simple and yet challenging enough to stretch and grow you. You will love the insightful questions that teach you to reach deep inside and apply action to the daily truth!
Coolest thing is at the end, you can get an overall look of what you have learned, and need to see in regards to God's direction in your life!
Enjoy and Experience this fresh book!
