Climbing Prayer Mountain by Tim Spykstra – Book Review

Climbing Prayer Mountain

Climbing Prayer Mountain: A 40 Day Prayer Journey Into The Presence Of God

The further I travel through life, the more I realize I need God as my constant companion and the closer I want to draw near to Him in daily prayer – but how do we grow in that aspect of our relationship with Him?

Tim Spykstra – a pastor, teacher, counselor and author – has written an amazing devotional called Climbing Prayer Mountain: A 40 Day Prayer Journey Into The Presence Of God that’s designed to help you to do just that!

Climbing Prayer Mountain is a spiritually rich yet highly readable devotional that’s helps draw you into the presence of God by deepening your prayer life with our Heavenly Father.

The book is divided into four sections that bring to mind the challenges and mountain top experiences of some of the great spiritual heroes of the faith:

  • Climbing With Moses
  • Climbing With Elijah
  • Climbing With Jesus
  • Climbing With Peter & John

The devotions are structured as follows:

  • Each devotional opens with an inspiring prayer principle to remember and master.
  • The daily Scripture and devotion follow. Each group of ten devotions is based on the spiritual journey of one of the heroes listed above.
  • The application section contains a Scripture to ponder and specific prayer topics to Meditate upon and Pray for that day,
  • At the end of each grouping of ten devotions is a 10-day Study Guide containing extended questions for those who wish to use the book for extended personal or group study.

Climbing Prayer Mountain is a unique devotional that not only provides insight into the prayer life of the heroes of our faith, but also provides us with practical application steps to pray better and draw closer to God in our personal prayer lives.

Climbing Prayer Mountain is a wonderful spiritual resource that I highly recommend to you!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

      Appreciate your encouragement! As a 10 year old I began praying for my dad who was an alcoholic. Ten years later my prayers were answered! Over the years I can testify to God’s faithfulness!
