Come Away With Me

Come Away With Me. Cynthia Hyle Bezek. Navpress.
January 2008. Paperback. 92 pages.

Come Away With Me is a guide full of examples, suggestions, and ideas on how you can plan and organize an effective prayer retreat. Cynthia shares her experience on her first prayer retreat and how much she realized the importance of setting aside hours or even a day to spend with God in prayer. We are reminded many times in this book of how Jesus regularly took time to be alone with His Father in prayer. I now see know how much I need to set aside time in my day, week, and month to be with the Lord. I, like so many other believers, am praying constantly throughout the day, but is that enough to keep us spiritually refreshed and rejuvenated? I think it's very important for us to have extended hours of prayer, not only for us to lay down our requests before the Lord and pray for friends and family, but also to just listen and see what He has to say to us. The author also adds other personal experiences and stories of other people who have benefited from these prayer retreats. I think doing this not only shows how much we love Him, but it also shows our devotion and desire to spend time with Him.

My Rating: 3/5 stars
