Raw, authentic, true . . Begin is a book of prayers for women--eight authentic, heart-poured out prayers that represent a variety of life experiences and ways of looking at the world. They are prayers inviting women to recognize the present condition of their heart towards their life, and towards God. Begin invites women to not hide but reveal their true selves, their true hearts, to God, despite their weariness, their wounds, their dreams, their pain.
Each prayer of Begin is framed by the colorful, strikingly beautiful image of a door to be opened, a place in her heart where God wants to be invited in. Surrender, trust, authenticity, confession, God’s sovereignty, weariness of the world, desire for community, pleas for mercy and hope and new life.
