Praying Upside Down: A Book Review

praying upside down

If like me, you are someone that often gets distracted during prayer, then Praying Upside Down by Kelly O’Dell Stanley is sure to turn your prayer life upside down, in a positive way! This book discusses how prayer is an art form, and it offers many creative strategies for kick starting and maintaining one’s prayer life. As a graphic designer, Stanley invites us to craft artistic pathways to spiritual intimacy with God.  Her rich background in the creative arts offer the reader fresh perspectives on an intimate relationship with God . These are perspectives that encourage the reader to want to pray. It’s so easy to let our prayer lives slip isn’t it? Stanley understands this and in ‘Praying Upside Down’, she offers personal stories from her own pilgrimage in prayer that demonstrate great vulnerability in asking the hard questions. This raw honesty will inspire confidence in the God who is always there for us. Each chapter ends with very practical advice that will add vitality to our prayer life and communion with God. There are many good books on prayer available today, however ‘Praying Upside Down’ is a fresh and unique yet biblically based look at prayer.
