Book Review | Anything: The Prayer that Unlocked my God and my Soul by Jennie Allen

“God, we will do anything.  Anything.”

This is the first book that I’ve reviewed by author Jennie Allen.  She has become quite a prominent face in the Christian community and is known for her boldness of faith, ability to create meaningful bible study materials, and being the founder of the IF:Gathering movement.  For more, check this link: IF:Gathering.

When I chose to read this book, I was excited, simply because the tagline states that this prayer to the Lord for anything “unlocked [her] God and her soul”.  It sounded like it would push me to pray differently, and if you’re a typical overwhelmed believer in our day and age, you may want that extra push too!

She began by giving a background of her life growing up, learning about Jesus, and eventually she began to question a few things.  She would wrestle with the idea of Jesus, if what He taught was true, if He was who He said He is… haven’t we all been there?

Packed with Bible verses, her interpretation and how the verses influenced her decision for Christ and thereafter, Jennie shares many deep stories of the steps she took to be bolder in her faith, the ways that God came through for her and her family, the directions that they went after praying this prayer and the lack of hesitation she now has when she is asked by our Lord to be obedient.

I don’t want to reveal any of it here.  Truly, I don’t, because as a reader into this motivational but heartwarming story, I don’t want to take away any of her impact.  It’s best to be heard from her.

This is a great book for those who seek to be jump-started in their faith.  If you’re unsure of the Lord and His presence in your life, read this book.  Jennie comes to many amazing conclusions based on Scripture that can be used to help point you to the One who is worthy of accomplishing ANYTHING in your life.
