Unshaken: Experience the Power and Peace of a Life of Prayer {Review} #prayunshaken

Does your faith wax and wane depending on your circumstances?  Wouldn’t you love to stand strong and unshaken while praying effective prayers?

I know I would!

Written by Sally Burke and Cyndie Claypool de Neve of Moms In Prayer International, Unshaken is a book based on Psalm 16:8

I keep my eyes always on the LORD.  With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.

This great little book is packed with beautiful stories that illustrate God’s faithfulness and instances of answering prayers beyond what we could ask or imagine (Eph 3:20).  I was reading through some of these stories the other night at my daughter’s practice, and I was thankful that I had gone to sit in my car for a few minutes because I was tearing up!

Along with these testaments of God’s amazing provision is a detailed 4-step prayer plan for praying effectively.  You’ve probably heard of it before:

  1. Praise
  2. Confession
  3. Thanksgiving
  4. Intercession

However, Sally and Cyndie do such a great job of explaining the four steps while interweaving scripture and stories of answered prayer throughout.  I realized as I was reading it that I didn’t consistently include confession in my prayers – and now I know why it’s important to do so!

You may have heard that we should pray God’s word back to him, but do you ever wonder which Scriptures to pray?  I love that they included some scriptures and examples of praying them in this book.  There is also a two-page chart of Scripture prayers, and as I was reading through them, specific people kept coming to mind to pray over.


I love Mom’s In Prayer’s mission statement to

“impact children and schools worldwide for Christ by gathering mothers to pray.”  

If you haven’t signed up for their daily email prayers, I highly recommend that you do so on their website, https://momsinprayer.org.  You can also join or start a prayer group in your area.
