Everything the Bible Says About Prayer

Everything the Bible Says About Prayer

My Thoughts:
I was really looking forward to reading this book. I'm always interested in learning more about prayer and was excited to see that this book included all the scriptural prayers and references to prayer.

The book is divided into logical categories so you can quickly find prayers that pertain to a particular situation. There are also a chapter with a lot of great insights on praying by Christian leaders.

I was disappointed that there isn't an index in this book. I was hoping to be able to quickly find specific prayers by different Biblical characters or authors, such as Paul's prayers or those by Hannah or Nehemiah, without trying to guess which categories they were in.

It was also disappointing to realize that my favorite prayer, from Ephesians 3:16-21 was not included. It makes me wonder what else was left out.

However, this is a great little resource book to expand your knowledge of God's intentions about prayer.

Countless books have been written about prayer, how to pray, and when to pray. This book includes exactly what God says about prayer, straight from his Word. It is organized by subject, such as prayer in the Old Testament, types of prayer, prayers of the psalmists, and prayers of Jesus. All the scriptural prayers and primary references to prayer are collected in this clear, concise book, with enough explanation to help even those new to the Bible. Its length and focus make it perfect for readers who love the Word of God.

You can buy the book here.

Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for providing a book for this review.
