Prayers of the Bible
Prayer is our direct means of communication with God. Yet many people are unsure how to pray. Is there a specific way to do it? Any examples we can study? Just where do you go to learn about prayer?
Go to the Bible; specifically, to the prayers in the Bible.
Susan Hunt guides women to explore prayers from the Bible, highlighting the overarching story of redemption that shapes these biblical prayers and equips us to know God's nearness and call on Him in truth.
She passionately believes that only a true woman can do this-so she lays out foundational, biblical principles of true womanhood, showing that true women are redeemed women.
Prayers of the Bible is an excellent study for women's Bible study groups. Each prayer passage comes with an outline, questions to focus your thoughts, a prayer story, practical suggestions for prayer, and suggestions for personal reflection.
This was a book that prayers were used to encourage and enlighten a group a woman in Mrs. Hunt's circle of friends to dig into the trenches with Jesus and each other. They were emotion filled without apology and weaknesses displayed for all to see. It was a humbling experience to read and great to use for a small Bible Study or with others who are wrestling with a deep trouble in their life whether shared experience or not. The experiences and growth is visible on the pages of this book and make working through this book a journey not just an exercise in information. I am extremely grateful to Susan Hunt for her gift that she has so freely shared.
I would like to thank Net Galley and P & R Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
