The "Prayer Journey Bible" is a guide to a meaningful life of prayer, designed as a life map for your individual spiritual journey from the point of recognizing personal sinfulness to Christ's holiness, from deliverance of evil to goodness, from selfishness to Christ-centeredness.
Suggestions and notes explain the nature of prayer. There are five basic overviews to help the reader map out their prayer journey.
â€¢ A prayer is included within each chapter to help you reflect on the specific point of the chapter, be moved by conviction, to experience an awesome time of worship, to discover an important exhortation, to make a new commitment, or acknowledge a personal need for confession.
â€¢ A dictionary of prayer terms is provided to help classify and direct the reader to various types of prayers.
â€¢ These selections are followed by a number for ease in using this dictionary of nearly 550 principles of prayer.
â€¢ There are other parallel references after each prayer principle which points you to where you can learn more about that principle more deeply.
â€¢ There are also suggested parallel principles with similar application or meaning. These will help you broaden your study.
The introductory page preceding the Biblical text of each of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are informative and helpful.
The classic beauty of the original King James Version will be appreciated by many who have enjoyed this version in the past and will be a welcome introduction to a new generation of Bible students.
Dr. Elmer Towns is recognized for his commitment to academic excellence, his literary creativity, spiritual commitment, and his exemplary prayer life. The Prayer Journey Bible will equip the reader for a more consistency and power in their practice of prayer and pursuit of the intimate presence of God in their life.
The attractiveness and quality of this edition make it an ideal gift for any occasion, for personal inspiration and devotional reading, or for an in-depth study on the subject of prayer.
