Many Christians find it difficult knowing how to pray. We would have stronger prayer if we prayed the bible, first giving supplications of thankfulness to God, our Savior, for His Glory, His Sovereignty, His Mercy, His Love for us. All general prayers are heard, if sincere, and not a "want or wish list", but scripture prayer is powerful, direct, focused on divine need for our imperfect lives, thankful of what he has changed in us, here, and hope, for now, and for eternal life.
The entire translation of this bible is of an easier, clearer, modern understanding. The pages are thin, so care must be taken when turning them. The type is small, so if no glasses, sheet magnifiers help-I bought them for another book, and I am glad I did. Each book has an introduction. The prayers are listed on the outside part of each page and some books have topics (articles) about our spiritual life: obedience, growth, forgiveness, etc, and categories of prayer. These are also listed at the back of the book. Following them, are all of the prayers themselves, listed under each book of the entire bible.
A 5 star rating for meeting my expectations. I feel so blessed that this book was considered and produced. I have heard strong prayer from the OT, and always wanted to pray from scripture. Many do not know what words are actual prayer-at least I hadn't. Making known what is a prayer, and a book that lists them on each page, makes it an easy, yet powerful tool for seeing them and reading them, hopefully to incorporate them into our daily lives, as we see need.
I am again thankful that cbd sells it and at a good value.
I really enjoy the Pray the Scriptures Bible. The translation is very easy to read and understand. The prayers all through the Bible are wonderful and can be personalized. The notes throughout are very helpful. The price is just right. Very good version of Scripture.
This is a wonderful way to start, and end your day, and every hour in between. Having a meaningful, loving two way conversation with God, using Scripture as the HOTLINE. I just received this Bible, and I am sure it will be a real help in improving prayer life. I highly recommend getting a copy of this Bible for you, and your loved ones.
I purchased this bible because I am interested in practicing "lectio divina". Although the editor, Pastor Johnson, does not directly mention the ancient method, at least as far as I have found, the prayers he has included in the margins of the text suit it perfectly. I have derived much peace and joy from this bible and I am grateful to Pastor Johnson for his efforts. Physically, the bible is sturdy, feels good in the hand and is very attractive. I expect it will last a long time.
