Unique title utilizes Jesus' prayer life in order to avoid spiritual burnout

Today's fast-paced society is one full of distractions, including a downward spiraling economy, human loss, depression, and hopelessness. But what people need to realize is that prayer to God offers hope. In author JL Coston's Escape to Pray! ($11.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-795-3) readers will be given insight into the prayer life of Jesus. As believers face the pressures of everyday life, it often becomes challenging to stay committed in prayer. Despite their busy and hectic schedules, they must still press their way into a prayer life that is pleasing to God in order to avoid spiritual burnout. They need only look at the example of Jesus' life as he dialogued faithfully with the Father and the sick were healed, the bound were set free, the dead regained life, and those who were lost believed.

"I desire for every believer to experience the power of prayer because prayer is life-changing," the author says. "As we learn from the characteristics of Jesus' prayer life, we can apply them to our own personal prayer lives and see change. Prayer not only will influence our own lives but also the lives of others for whom we pray."

As the founder and prayer retreat coordinator for Praying Friends, Coston has always been a dedicated person of prayer. She believes that her book's message of having a committed prayer life like Christ is certainly newsworthy because it will benefit those who put it into practice.

JL Coston is a native of Chester, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Howard University with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Theological Studies degree.
