“The Scriptures tell us that when we pray the will of God, he delights to answer our prayers.”
Praying God’s Promises, by Linda Evan Sheperd, covers a wide range of types of prayers a person may have. With over 20 different topics, this book is a good book to have as a reference book or for those times when it is hard to know what to pray. Some of the topics include faith, hope, children, comfort, healing, relationships and salvation. The chapters contain personal stories, prayers and bible verses that go along with the theme of the chapter. The book focuses on helping the reader understand the promises of God to His people as stated in the bible.
While I did not agree with the use of some of the bible verses, this is a nice book to have for those times when it is hard to pray. I also feel the author used to many different bible translations. Even though there are times reading in different translations is a good thing, I would have preferred if the author had used just a few different popular versions. This would make a good book to use for a bible study.
I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing, this is my honest review.
