by Stormie Omartian

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

A Book of Prayer is for everyone! This collection of purposeful and personal petitions will inspire confidence and encourage all believers in their walk of faith. Included in these pages are some prayers from Stormie Omartianís previous books, as well as several written especially for this edition. Everything about this book is designed for praying hands, as its smaller size and padded cover give it a comfortable feel. A ribbon bookmark gracefully and attractively remembers the readerís place.

Most importantly are the prayers, all of which are solidly grounded in the Scriptures. Bible verses form the framework of each supplication, reminding believers of Godís precious promises and His mighty power. At the bottom of every page is a Scripture verse, highlighting Godís will on the particular issue and providing assurance of His help.

The book is divided into five sections, creating a convenient and comprehensive view. The topics covered include the traditional ones of faith, hope, and peace, in addition to specific areas such as parenting and finding the perfect mate. The prayers are short, yet powerful. Filled with discernment and quiet confidence, these words remind believers to come boldly before the Throne of Grace. These prayers may also trigger additional entreaties and desires, causing the blessed time of communication with God to be further enriched.

The arrangement of 365 daily readings is meant to encourage a regular prayer time, while enlarging the focus and direction of the petitions. Yet, whether this book is used as part of daily devotions or simply as a starting off point for specific prayers, believers will find the writing full of grace, beauty, and truth.
