Grabbing God's Attention - The Art of Praying Like a Pro

How often have you bombarded heaven’s door only to feel like your prayer bounced back into your lap? So, let me ask…Are you frustrated in any way with your prayer life? Or embarrassed because you really don’t have one?  Maybe you’re disappointed because only some prayers have been answered. Or you’re looking at others who have gotten exactly what they prayed for and your feeling shortchanged.

I’ve been there. I totally know what ALL that feels like. And let me tell you…

Help is on the way!

I asked 100′s of people what their most pressing questions were about prayer. I went into chat rooms and forums and noted the most frequently discussed prayer dilemmas. Then I went to work answering those questions. Through years of study and 20 years experience as a pastor, I have learned a lot about prayer and I want to help answer those questions for you.

This is why I have written a book to address some of the most common questions and frustrations about prayer. It’s called, Grabbing God’s Attention – The Art of Praying Like a Pro. It’s available on Amazon in the Kindle edition or as a PDF that can be printed.  The PDF option is great because it allows you to write in the “Taking-Action” sections so you can immediately put to use what you have been reading. Grab it today and start digging in!

"I hear others pray and I think to myself, my prayers suck. Reading your book showed me that they don't. I'm just talking to my friend.

I believe God has answered all my prayers, and I'm learning to accept when the answer is "No"." - Elizabeth Antongiorgi

"I have been a Christian for 34 years and still struggle with praying. Not praying itself - I have frequent short little conversations with God on a regular basis; it’s the heart-to-heart ones that I find I have trouble with. I run out of words. “Grabbing God’s Attention” helps provide tips such as praying God’s Word … I won’t run out of words using just that technique alone! Then there are those times when I have a long LONG wait to hear from God. This easy-to-read and down-to-earth book/guide is filled with encouragement to keep pressing in AND patiently wait on God. He has my best interest at heart whether it’s a “yes” or a “no” so I can take comfort knowing that His way is best for me! I love the fact that even though this is biblically sound advice; it isn’t religious in tone and talks to me on my level. Thank you Dr. Linda Travelute for another gem! I recommend this to anyone who prays - check it out! I purchased her first book, “Finding Your Smile in Hard Times” and now this one. Can’t wait to see what she publishes next! " - Deone
