Parachute Prayer: The Practice of Praying Continually
Have you ever wondered what Paul meant when he told us to “pray continually” (1 Thessalonians 5:17)? Do you long to develop a regular habit of prayer, one that helps you keep prayer concerns before your God while also reminding you of His constant presence? He is with you. He loves you. He wants you to talk with Him!
Through a personal prayer concern, author Janet Benlien Reeves discovered that God has planted prompts to pray all over the place. Training herself to notice them and respond became a fun and meaningful exercise—one she’s eager to share with you.
In the pages of this book, you’ll read Janet’s story, learn the concept of Parachute Prayer, and find more than one hundred Parachute Prayers to try yourself as you begin to develop this simple habit. You’ll also discover how “the practice of praying continually” can draw you closer to Your Savior, benefit your people and your world, and launch you into deeper, more focused prayer times.

Home Is Where God Sends You: Lessons in Contentment from Nearby and Faraway is a book of devotions for women who are moving. These devotions are divided into 13 chapters which correspond to all the different aspects of moving:
- Getting the News
- Packing Up Your Treasures
- Saying Good-bye
- Taking Off
- Trusting En Route
- Moving In
- Embracing Loneliness
- Getting Lost
- Discovering Community
- Reaching Out to Neighbors
- Making Friends
- Finding Your Niche
- Accepting Your Home
It’s not a practical, how-to book, but daily encouragement for the task from someone who’s been through it many times. As women become uprooted, sometimes time and again, they can learn to find stability in the One Who never changes, the One Who not only sends, but Who always goes with them.
If you are moving out (or have just moved in), I wrote this book for you.
If you know someone who is moving, though, this book could be a thoughtful farewell gift from you. In fact, if you’re really creative, you could put it in a gift basket along with a new tea cup, some stress-relieving tea, and a box of chocolates along with an extra roll of packing tape and some information that you dig up for her about her new hometown.
If your church is located in a military or college town where women are moving in and out frequently, this book belongs in your church library!
And, if you aren’t moving and don’t know anyone who is but are curious about the experiences of women who’ve moved often and lived to talk about it, you might just find the book interesting. Though I wrote it primarily for women who move, the lessons in contentment contained in the book apply to anyone.
God is with you. He loves you. He has a perfect plan for your life and is using your struggles to make you into the person He planned for you to be. Contentment comes with obedience, and peace is its priceless companion. Home is where God sends you, and you’ll always find Him there, too.
