Book review by Robert Weston

Author and teacher Robert Weston just sent this lovely review of

Prayer in the Making: Trying it, talking it, sustaining it

It is rare to come across a book that succeeds so successfully in inspiring both those who are new to the faith and those who have been walking with the Lord for many years to find new ways to develop their prayer life. The twelve themes that Lyndall introduces – Encounter, Worship, Listening, Stillness, Action, Intercession, Strategies, Restoration, Voice and body, Scripture, Warfare and Resilience – lead the reader almost without them noticing into the presence of God and make each theme and concept their own.

The stories Lyndall tells of significant moments in her life are both relevant and impactful, as are the delightful retelling of Scripture passages, which pinpoint how the power of prayer was at work in each one. Taken together they provide a platform and a launch pad for the reader to go as deep with the Lord as they want and are able – a process greatly helped by making good use of the threefold invitation at the end of each section: Trying it, Talking it and Sustaining it.

Above all, Lyndall reminds us that prayer is action, which in turn leads to further action.

‘Faith in the Making’ Feedback

Among the various online mentions of my first book, ‘Faith in the Making’, I came across these two articles on the Pilgrim Traveller blog. I’m passing them on because I found them a very helpful read.

(Thanks for the kind words, David!)

Simply a walk-on part
