If you’ve spent any amount of time hanging around The MOB Society, you know we are big fans of prayer.

In fact, over the years, we’ve helped over 30,000 moms go deeper in their prayer lives. Just thinking about that number of lives impacted and the generations that will come behind them gives me the shivers. In a good way!

If you’re among that group of moms who knows prayer should be more of a priority in your life, but doesn’t know where to start, take a look at the following resources!

Of course, we have to start with the books that come straight from our ministry, right? We actually work quite hard to provide you with some stellar prayer resources, and at the top of our list is My Book of Prayer.

My BOP is a guided prayer journal that gives you enough scripture-based prayers for your children to last three months! Complete with weekly devotions from our writing team, tools to make prayer a practical reality in your daily life, and even a virtual prayer mentor (ME!), My Book of Prayer is the space where your prayers and God’s Word meet, allowing you to partner with Him as you parent. With a design that enables you to both engage the Word of God yourself, and craft handpicked verses into prayers, My Book of Prayer leads you in impacting your child’s life for generations to come in just about 10 minutes a day.

A Praying Life, by Paul Miller, is hands down my all-time favorite book on prayer. Paul has a powerful way of teaching on this subject that is deeply profound, yet simple to understand. I’ve probably read this book five times and each time I gain something from it.

A Call to Prayer, by J.C. Ryle is an oldie but goodie. Sermon style, this book delivers a passionate and reasoned call to private prayer.

Fervent, by Priscilla Shirer, was released around the same time as her amazing movie, War Room. Priscilla’s style is sure to get you fired up and interceding for the important people in your life!

The Autobiography of George Muller is a book I read at least once a year. It isn’t really about prayer, exactly, but it really is about the power of prayer and asking God for everything we need. Of all the books on this list, this one probably taught me more about prayer, and my faith in general, than any other.

Handle with Prayer, by Charles Stanley takes a look at why so many Christians struggle to open God’s precious gift of prayer, and helps us understand how God desires to move in our lives, help us through difficulties, and unveil the unseen.

One of my favorite truth-teller writers is Lisa Whittle. Her book, 5-Word Prayers is a 40 day devotion perfect for people who find themselves saying the same thing to God over and over again. If you’re ready for your prayer life to thrive, this is the book for you!

In Let Us Pray, some of our best Bible teachers give us instruction on prayer, from why we should pray, to what prayer is, how it ties with God’s sovereignty, what it means to pray in Jesus’ name, what it means to hallow God’s name, and why God is to be the focus of our prayers, not ourselves.
