About Take Every Thought to Prayer


Take Every Thought to Prayer puts God at the center of literally everything. With hundreds of prayers about the thoughts and feelings common to the human experience, it will be hard-pressed for the reader not to find in this book prayers that resonate with whatever challenges they are currently facing. This book will be on the shelf of pastors, counselors, and ministry leaders who share it with clients who are seeking the true reasons as to why they are struggling in life. Charles Wagner has weaved the same Biblical theme into just about every prayer, that human beings suffer because they live in rebellion from God. Though the book has a very clear message about confession and repentance, the prayers are compassionate and understanding, speaking lovingly into hundreds of situations in which people suffer. The prayers reflect heartfelt cries to God from those living in the 21st century and convey the wisdom God has taught Charles through his own season of intense adversity.

Reader Testimonials

  • This book has alot of depth. It is certainly something that can really change lives. It flows beautifully. Impressive.
  • Honestly, my first thought was that someone might be reluctant to buy the book if they have only 1 or 2 prayers relevant to their unique circumstances. However, as I read the book, I was fascinated. There were a whole bunch of prayers applicable to me. It struck me. They connected with me. I was like "wow!" I didn't expect the book to connect with me personally but it did. I can certainly see pastors and elders using this book counseling people. You have a gift. This is very well written.
  • Your approach has a valuable collection of prayers and ways to get started in prayer. It's a book you can go to for a particular problem in life. It will be a blessing to those in need.
  • In a time when the country needs some hope, guidance, and love there is nothing better than this prayer book that will encourage and uplift the sad souls. Being able to look at a page on a book that reminds you that everything will be okay is so powerful. Prayers are what holds us together during hard times so that we can grow past it without falling apart. I am a Muslim female, my plan is to get copies for my best friends who are Christian, Hebrew, and Mennonite because we all agree that prayer is the only way that we are still pushing and the greatest gift is a reminder of faith.
  • It's not the same old - same old. It is interesting reading more in tune with the times. I wanted to keep reading.
  • The book makes it easy to understand ways to make changes in attitude.  Reminds us there is hope for this world and not just heaven.
  • I certainly believe that you have something here with enormous potential and I hope that it lifts off, that you are encouraged, and that it develops into something amazing.
  • I loved your intro where you talked about the original sin being that people think they are God. I think this book has the potential to really work in a lot of people's lives. I can see offshoots and sequels like Bible Studies & Sunday School lessons, Devotionals, etc.
  • I think it is an awesome work, both in the sheer effort and creativity involved, and in the uniqueness of what it is doing and addressing. It could be a powerful witness and perhaps a venue to connect people to the real God of the universe and savior of mankind.
  • Very impressive. There is great breadth of coverage there. You have explored the spectrum of human experience.
  • Readers of this book will know they aren't alone.
  • Your book looks like it might become a classic.
  • I think you have something here. You take an incarnational approach, meeting people where they are in their messed up thinking and situations and give them voice, not unlike the psalms that give us permission to be real before God. I like your writing. It's clear and vivid. I didn't read all the prayers but what I read was biblical. In fact, I like how you communicate biblical truth and counsel in the context of real life situations. I think people will relate. It is certainly useful for the general Christian population.
