The Gathering

The Gathering by Jim Rosemergy, can really make anyone stop and think about their relationship with God. This book is actually a nine step journey into the power of personal or group prayer, as well as a 40 day guide with questions, that will definitely make you stop and think. For me this book was an easy to read, I could not put it down. The author really captured my attention as I am sure he will yours. What I found amazing was the information that Mr.Rosemergy gives you about your needs, your prayer life, and your relationship with God.

This book really made me stop and think about my needs and what my prayer life has been like with Jesus, and what I thought the description of my prayers being answered was. It was even a bit hard for me to find out that God does not fulfill our needs through prayer.

I found out that prayer is not something we do; it is an experience of God’s presence, wow now I am really interested. The further I got into the book, I found some challenges that the author sets for the readers, some for me really hit home. One of those was the forgiveness challenge.

I think allot of us as Christians find it hard at times to forgive ourselves, I know I do. And maybe even forgiving others sometimes as well, is difficult for some of us, it is me. Another one of the challenges in the book I thought to be very thought provoking, well in all honesty this whole book is thought provoking, but back to the other challenge, which was the challenge to accept myself, I thought oh boy I am a failure as a Christian because this is something very hard for me to do. But at these times that I run into a few of these difficult challenges, I need to put myself back into His presence, and spend time alone with Him.

I also think this book makes a very good devotional, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a deeper meaning of prayer, and having a deeper relationship with God on His terms not ours.

I was provided a free digital version of this book from Unity Books in partnership with NetGalley for review. I was not required to write a positive review and these opinions are my own.
