A collection of classic and contemporary prayers, some derived from Scripture and others from the writings of Christian leaders throughout the centuries, this beautiful volume invites readers into a daily experience of closer intimacy with God. Each day's entry focuses on one of ten traditional types of prayer:
* Prayers of Thanksgiving
* Prayers of Confession
* Prayers of Affirmation
* Prayers of Petition
* Prayers of Renewal
* Prayers of Praise and Adoration
* Prayers to Have Christ-like Character
* Prayers for Wisdom and Guidance
* Prayers of Intercession
* Prayers of Surrender
With 260 entries -- enough for every weekday of an entire year -- Prayers for Today guides readers through a unique kind of spiritual pilgrimage, a pilgrimage toward the very throne room of God.
For any reader who's ever wanted more out of prayer or who's ever hungered for a greater sense of God's presence, Prayers for Today promises deepened communion with the One who treasures the words and longings of His people.
Prayer plays a very big part in my life. So when I was offered to read and review this book, devotional I jumped at it.
I try to get a new devotional every December of January to start the new year off with some good ole fashion time in the Bible as well as helping me to sort out some much needed prayer time and needs.
Author Kurt Bjorklund has an unique way of sorting out some amazing scriptures to bring the days focus together. I so enjoyed the titles and the way that it made me really stop for many reasons and check myself with the Word of God.
I did take and read ahead of it, not just sticking with one day or week by week reading. And the reason that I did try and go through it is so that I could get the word out before the end of the year about this amazing devotional.
This is a great read by one amazing author. If you love reading fantasy go and grab this book up and devour it. I do recommend, at least for this one, go to the back and read the last 15 pages first.. I know, I know... lol.. normally I don't recommend this. But it does put just more in to the read to know more of this.
So read the synopsis, then go pick up this awesome devotional, grab your Bible, then get in your favorite place for prayer and devotional time. Then please stop back by here and let me know what insights you gleam from these unique pages of PRAYERS for TODAY.
So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of:
Five Clock Rating!!!
