Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? by Phillip Yancey

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Shannon, at Rocks in my Dryer, is hosting a huge giveaway! Isn't that exciting! I love to give something meaningful to my friends - as I shop, I always look for just the right item that fits our relationship and the individual's personality. So, if you stop by this little blog of mine, I think you might like this gift I've picked out.

This fall, I have been nourished by the wisdom of Phillip Yancey in his recent book on prayer. Our Bible study has plumbed the depths of prayer with Yancey's help in this amazing book. My personal prayer life has been challenged and I have probed the deeper questions surrounding prayer with a beloved mentor. I would love for you to enjoy this book too. I'll be giving the book away to one blessed commenter. So, leave a comment here and I'll be drawing a name next week to give away this treasure box full of well-mined jewels from God's Word and life's experiences.

Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing!
*Edited to add: I'll send to the U.S. or Canada and I can only do that if I can reach you via your blog or an email address. The winner will be drawn on Monday morning, November 5th!
