Three Inspirational Books by Christine Brooks Martin Share Bestselling Status


Three books written by Christine Brooks Martin continue to share bestselling book status on “Pray What God Says,” “Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith” and “Christine’s Short-Shorts” have been well received by customers, ranking within the top 100 Religion & Inspirational genre for prayer books, devotionals and self-help categories.

Martin’s first title “Pray What God Says” has been a consistent Amazon bestseller since December, 2011 in the U.S., the United Kingdom, France and Germany. The book is a reference guide and bible study companion containing many topical scriptures that introduce you to one of the keys to effective prayer. The purpose of the book is to help you gain a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through scripture-based prayer.

“Talk to God with Affirmations of Faith” is the sequel to her first title. Martin took the topical scriptures given for various circumstances in “Pray What God Says” and created affirmation style prayers. “Many people expressed having difficulty forming their own prayers even though I provided a list of scriptures for them. So I wrote these prayers as a way to help others pray the scriptures and at the same time give them a jump-start on creating and developing their own prayer life,” says Martin. “Each sentence of the prayers is all scripture-based,” she added.

“Christine’s Short-Shorts” is a collection of short stories and poems that center primarily on Martin’s experiences and observations during her Christian walk. It was through this title that she embraced her motto for everything she has done and endeavor to continue through evangelism. Her motto is, “Lord may I share the knowledge of your grace with people I will never see, in places where my feet will never tread.”

Martin is working on new projects for release in Spring 2013. They are “He That Healeth Thee” and a 4-book series entitled “Little Book, Big Prayers.”

Martin’s titles are available on her website or, and Barnes and Noble.

Understanding Joy

One day I decided to take a drive to a nearby park on my lunch break. The privacy of my car gave me the liberty to cry to my heart’s content, purging every possible tear. Afterwards, I adjusted myself and headed back to work. En route, I started talking to God. I told Him I know He had joy unspeakable and full of glory. Then I yelled out loud, “God if you have joy, then show me what it looks like and give it to me today! Then I added … “Please?”

Just as I made my request I had to stop for the red light at an intersection. As I waited, there was a woman and a little girl standing on the corner and when the “Walk” signal flashed for them to cross, the woman grabbed the little girl’s hand. As they stepped off the curb and entered into the crosswalk, the little girl started skipping. She had a great big smile on her face and her ponytail bounced and swayed as she skipped. She kept pace with the woman until they reached the opposite corner. They started walking in the direction I was driving, and the woman let go of the little girl’s hand but she continued to skip with joy and abandon. The scene grabbed my heart and I burst into tears. I witnessed the Lord’s response to my request.

When I got to the parking lot at work, there was still a little time left for my break. So I stayed in the car and praised the Lord. He ministered to me about what I had seen. The woman was just like God. He takes us by the hand to lead, guide and direct our path. He grips us firmly in the places where our walk with Him may present danger, obstacles or challenges although we have the right of way. But we can be like a child and skip with joy. We can abandon our hearts to His care and safety, even when our hand is not in His. It is all about keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.

Matthew 18:3—…Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
