New Book Offers Fresh Look at Prayer and Prayer Assessment

STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Aug. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Author and Speaker Chris Heinz has released a new book, "Made To Pray." The book helps readers find their best prayer types and includes a prayer assessment. To celebrate the release, Heinz is offering books for $5.00 (75% off) through August 23 at

A recent survey by Heinz revealed that 75% of respondents were unsatisfied with prayer. "That's way too many people not happy with their prayer lives," Heinz said, "I used to really struggle with prayer too, but then I discovered my best prayer types, and prayer became easy and enjoyable."

A former company chaplain and house church pastor, Heinz is the vice president of marketing for EnergyCAP, Inc. He has mobilized prayer for more than 15 years, including the 40 Days of Prayer for PSU during the Penn State scandal.

According to Heinz, readers have a "sweet spot in prayer," which is made up of various prayer types. Like personality traits, strengths, and spiritual gifts, readers can find their preferences in prayer and by operating in them, pray with satisfaction and ease.

"Made To Pray" discusses 12 prayer types and includes discussion questions, conversation starters, and the prayer assessment. A DVD is also available for individual or group study.

Readers already benefitted from the first edition, but this second edition makes the book even better. "We released this new edition to include the prayer assessment, which people have found very valuable. It's a unique tool that you won't find elsewhere."

Dr. Doug Shaw, President of International Students, Inc., said about Made To Pray, "This book could radically change how you see God, your life, and your ministry. I believe it will quickly find itself on your 'best prayer books' list."
