Bestselling Author Sheila Walsh Shares Practical Steps to Pray Through Dark Seasons

Sheila Walsh Departs from Previous Books in New Book “Praying Women”

WATERLOO – January 20, 2020 – Prayer is our most powerful, life-changing tool, but all too often, it feels like a struggle. Bestselling author and beloved speaker Sheila Walsh helps women reignite their relationship with God, and to embrace the life-changing effects of prayer in her new book, Praying Women: How to Pray When You Don’t Know How (Baker Books, ITPE 9780801078033) releasing February 4, 2020.

Praying WomenPraying Women is a departure from Walsh’s previous books, offering very practical steps to pray in the midst of storms, celebrations, trials and the everyday challenges of life. “I’ve written a lot of books over the years but I don’t think any have impacted me more personally than Praying Women,” shares Walsh. “There have been many dark seasons in my life when I found it difficult to pray. That’s why I wrote this book. After years of trying to be perfect, I began to understand that God doesn’t seek our perfection. He just wants our presence.”

With her signature honesty, vulnerability, and encouraging spirit, Walsh uses personal stories, extensive research and biblical teachings to show that God is not looking for perfect words when praying or perfect people – He is simply looking for open hearts.

For those who find prayer difficult from not knowing what to say, how to find the time, struggling with distractions and repetitiveness, Praying Women offers a simple, powerful way to reignite conversation with God.

Endorsements for Praying Women include bestselling authors Max Lucado, Lisa Harper and Christine Caine, who says, “In Praying Women, Sheila reminds us all that power is one of the greatest weapons we have to push back the darkness in our world. This book will challenge you to think about prayer in a new way – one rooted in who God is, not who we are or who we want to be.”

Interviews with Sheila Walsh are available.
