Author Biography

Hi! My name is Toby Lofton. I am a pastor, author, and retired US Army Chaplain.
My passion is to help people grow in their faith, particularly people like “Mike.”
Mike is a Christian. He does what Christians do. Mike goes to church, reads his Bible, prays, and from time to time, he helps others.
Mike is frustrated though. You see, Mike’s experience with discipleship is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get until you bite into one. Sometimes you may like it, sometimes not. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason to how the chocolates are placed in the box nor does anyone tell you what order to eat them in. This has been Mike’s experience of faith and church.
Mike never knows what he is going to get when he goes to church. There is nobody available to guide him in how to improve his discipleship. Everything seems to be done at random. Whatever the pastor feels like preaching… Whatever the book someone is studying...simply whatever.
I want to help Mike. Mike, of course, could be anyone. So, I write a blogs, articles, and books that provide a precise and intentional method of helping people to grow in their faith.
I am currently pastoring Petal United Methodist Church in Petal, Mississippi. Apart from helping others grow in their faith, I like the outdoors and fitness.
I am married, have three children, and six grandchildren.

Jesus: 21 Days That Can Change The Way You Pray by Toby Lofton is a Christian devotional book. The aim of the book is to teach us to pray as Jesus prayed. There are 18 lessons based on the prayers of Jesus. Interspersed between the lessons, there are five sessions that are looking back and application. While the book is written for a reader who already has a relationship with Jesus and is interested in improving their prayer life, the author realizes that someone who is not already a Christian might pick up the book. Therefore, the last section is a chance for any reader who is not a Christian to become one.

Jesus: 21 Days That Can Change The Way You Pray by Toby Lofton is a unique idea for a devotional book. I like the idea of going out into the community and praying blessings on the people I meet from day to day. I appreciated the idea of praying for a person ahead of time, to get them ready to hear about Jesus. I love the reminder that everything we do is supposed to be for the glory of God. I am glad that the author addresses a person who is not a Christian with enough facts about Jesus to enable them to follow through in becoming a Christian. I liked the list of ideas for praying so well that I have printed them out to put above my computer. I appreciated that the book is written in simple, everyday language.
