The best book I read in 2016
5 stars By Simone Bahler, Oct 25 2016
I am a prayer warrior and found this unique book recommended. I gives you guidelines, equips you and helps you grow in over 70 spiritual disciplines and points out their specific desire, scriptures , practice options and how you can produce spiritual fruits. In addition it gives you an explanation of each discipline, reflection and exercises and resources. I used this book to study each spiritual discipline, learn and create a daily prayer. You can use this book as daily devotion, as connect group leader, ladies group seminar leader, start a workshop in your church to help others grow in their spiritual discipline etc. It helps you draw near Jesus our Saviour, grow in your faith to the Father Almighty and experience the Holy Spirit how he manifest glory in you. This book makes you hungry and thirsty for more but also brings such spiritual wealth into your life. I can highly recommend this book for you or as a great gift for ministers, group  connect leader or youth leader. This book brings you to a higher realm in your walk in God's kingdom on earth and you will walk under open heaven when you read it
