We saw how the Arensens cared for people and built their family around the things that matter. This isn’t only a good book on prayer retreats, it’s a good book on prayer. It’s full of Scripture, which has a power nothing else does. Years later Nanci and I sat with Shel and Kym in Oregon, where they told us that they believed God was calling them to step away from the work they’d been doing all those years. God never says our points and anecdotes won’t return unto him without accomplishing their purpose-he says his Word won’t.

Overall, this book is an excellent guide to setting up a prayer day. It includes the "why" for such a day as well as lots of examples. I read this book for a personal retreat day and got a lot out of it.

This book gives a simple plan to spend a day in prayer. It is a great outline that is not hard to follow and stay on track. If I hadn't had this structure, I'm doubtful I could have spent that much time in prayer without my thoughts wandering off half the time.

I found the book rewarding and informative. A group of us use it as a part of our weekly Bible Study.
