“Threadbare Prayer is for the weary and heavy laden one who needs help turning to the only One who can shoulder our everyday burdens as well as our especially broken spaces. Not only will this book help you know how to pray in your time of need, it will point you again and again to the goodness and glory of our capable, faithful God.” Katie Orr

“I’m convinced that one of the reasons God allows us to walk through hard things is so He can use our lives to tell a story of His faithfulness to the people around us watching, waiting to see if the God we say we love is worth following. He did it with Hosea. He did it with Paul. He is doing it with Stacey Thacker. Over the last few years I have watched her absolutely refuse to stop clinging to Christ in the midst of a deluge of hard things. The words in this book are hard-won. They are hard-lived. These prayers have been prayed so many times…but the beauty of threadbare prayers is that they never, ever wear out…even when we do. I’m so grateful to Stacey, and the entire Thacker family, for allowing us to see Jesus in them.” Brooke McGlothlin

“I was deeply moved reading Threadbare.  Moved in my core from page one, with burning tears, and then into comfort and truth of Jesus.  Page after page, prayer after prayer, reminded me to lift my eyes from my struggle to The One who saves. ” Francie Winslow
