People ask me, “How did it come to pass that you wrote a book about prayer in the book of Genesis?” I didn’t really set out to do that. I was studying the book of Genesis for my small group at the time, and at the same time preparing for a prayer ministry trip. Wanting to make the most of the time I had, I chose to study prayer in Genesis in my morning devotions. As I did that the Lord showed me wonderful things, which I wrote in my journal.
About halfway through my study of Genesis, the Lord reminded me that I am blessed to be a blessing. I well knew that from the many times I’ve facilitated a Kairos course from Simply Mobilizing. I remember saying in my head, “I know, Lord – I’ve often heard Don Richardson speak of that in chapter 2 of Kairos.” He said to me, “Also in this,” and I realized that what He was showing me in my study of Genesis must be shared too, that it might bless others.
So I completed the process, compiled it into a book format and sent it to a single publisher, who immediately agreed to publish it. At its root then, Beginnings – Growing in Prayer through Genesis, has it’s own beginning – in Kairos chapter 2, and in prayer.
You can find Beginnings on Amazon, or you can contact me and I’ll sell you a signed copy!
