A fresh approach to a topic of perennial interest---women of the Bible In the last few years a number of best-selling books have focused on the lives of women of the Bible. Now, Nancy Kennedy takes a fresh approach by reflecting on the significant prayers of women in Scripture. Praying with Women of the Bible features some of the Bible's most notable women, including Deborah, Hannah, and Mary, all of whom prayed for different things, in different ways. By using the examples of these godly women, the book is designed to show different types of prayer, as well as different reasons to pray. The types of prayer include willingness and surrender, praise and worship, thanksgiving and personal supplication, pleading for mercy, intercessions and perseverance, bold requests, and a prayer of faith. Features include: * Explores the lives and prayers of ten women of the Bible * Relates the biblical examples to the lives of women today * Concludes each chapter with a sample prayer to give readers a starting point for their own continued prayer
