Publisher's Description

Most of us have felt it: that unexplained prompting in our hearts to stop and pray for a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger. Sometimes we dismiss the feeling as a stray thought about friends, families, or situations. Sometimes we are even awakened from a deep sleep with an even deeper need to go to God in prayer. Where do those urges come from? Are they truly from God? And do those prayers have any effect on the one we're praying for?

In Called to Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd shares dozens of inspiring true stories of people who have felt God's call to pray--and the astonishing results of those impromptu prayers. For those who wonder if prayer has any effect or doubt that God communicates with us personally, this heart-stirring book will amaze, inspire, and equip them to respond to those holy promptings.

    Linda Evans Shepherd in her new book, "Called To Pray" published by Revell gives us Astounding Stories of Answered Prayer.

    From the Back Cover: When you feel a nudge to pray, what will you do?

    Most of us have felt it at one time or another: that unexplained prompting in our hearts to stop and pray for a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger. Sometimes we are even awakened from a deep sleep with an even deeper need to go to God in prayer. Where do those urges come from? Are they truly from God? Or are they merely stray thoughts? And if we respond in prayer, are others lives affected at all?

    In Called to Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd shares dozens of inspiring true stories of people who have heeded Gods call to pray and the astonishing results of those impromptu prayers. Through accounts of people being protected from harm and rescued from danger, of needs being met and hearts being encouraged, youll see that God is involved in an active and dynamic relationship with usand that we can be part of his plan to bless others.

    If you have ever wondered if prayer has any real effect or doubted that God communicates with us personally, this heart-stirring book will amaze, inspire, and equip you to respond to those holy promptings.

    Linda Evans Shepherd knows that all of us have that moment when The Holy Spirit gives us a burden to pray for someone and for a specific period of time. Ms. Shepherd begins the book with the story of Jack who forgot to make a fuel check before he took off from Miami to Fort Pierce. After a short period of time in the air he quickly realized his mistake, he was going down. The problem was there was no safe place to land. However at that moment a parishioner got the burden to pray for Jack. Suddenly a freshly plowed field appeared and Jack was safely able to land the plane with no damage and he walked away. The parishioner prayed at exactly the moment that Jack was in great need. His ordeal lasted a half hour, the parishioner prayed for the same length of time. Ms. Shepherd provides us lots of stories like this and at the end of each story she also provides us a prayer we can pray. The book is divided into ten parts: 1: Called to Pray for Protection, 2: Called To Pray for Rescue, 3: Called To Pray for Needs, 4: Called To Pray for Souls, 5: Called To Pray for Breakthrough, 6: Called To Pray for Guidance, 7: Called To Pray for Miraculous Wonders, 8: Called To Pray for Encouragement, 9: Called To Pray for Trust and Faith and 10: Called To Pray for Others. Prayer works! Sometimes we forget and we don't pray as we should especially when we feel impressed to pray. Ms. Shepherd has given us a book that reminds us of the critical role we play. And she shows us the results of our prayers. This is a book that you will refer back to again and again. It will lift up your spirits when you feel empty or low. A great resource!

    Ever wonder why all of a sudden you are thinking of someone? Why can't you get this person off your mind? Then you feel the urge to pray for them? If so, this is the book you need to read. This book is filled with true stories of people who have had the overwhelming feeling to stop what they are doing an start praying. Answering GOD's call to pray changed the outcome of the situation. Each story is only 1 or 2 pages and can be read within 5 minutes with many different topics and situations covered.

    I would recommend this as a very inspirational and uplifting read. It is a great book that can be enjoyed by any age. You can read it as a devotional, a quick short story read, read from cover to cover or just read at your leisure. An excellent book that will make you smile while reading and when you put it down. Loved it!!

    SUMMARY:

    Full of many testimonial stories of people being pressed to pray in different circumstances and situations, author Linda Evans Shepherd shares her own personal recounts of answering the need to pray as well as several others. Broken into categorized sections of prayer (Prayer for Souls, Prayer for Others, Prayer for Trust and Faith), each 3-4 page segment includes a Bible verse, personal story surrounding the need to pray, followed by a prayer. Though not every prayer is answered in the manner prayed for, each prayer included was fulfilled in Gods perfect method. Motivational and inspirational!

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Having read several of Linda Evans Shepherds previous books, I knew this one would be on my want-to-read list. Interesting, prompting, and inspiring, Called to Pray opened my heart and mind to listen to the necessity to pray. I found the style and length of each portion to be very easy to read in pieces or even straight through. Perfect as a gift, devotional or perhaps even a Bible study, Called to Pray was definitely uplifting!

    RATING:

    4 (out of 5) pennies

    I loved this book through and through. It was really hard to put down. At first I thought it would be mostly a book about prayer from more of an instructional perspective; however, it is much more than that. This book is filled with true stories about people who prayed, and what happened next. Have you ever wondered if prayer really makes a difference? I think the stories in this book will show you that it truly does, that God hears and answers the prayers of those who call out to Him. I felt very encouraged to pray after reading all of these stories. Its a great reminder that if you feel like theres nothing you can do, except pray, thats actually the best thing you can do. Of course, thats not to say that God will answer your every prayer exactly the way you expect Him to, but He will answer the way you need Him to as you trust in Him. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from Revell in exchange for my review.

    The power of prayer has such a far reaching influence, yet it is one of the most overlooked resources in a Christians life. How many times have you felt the prompting to pray for a person or situation and ignore it? What blessing or need went unfulfilled because you didnt? This book will certainly make you think about those times and being obedient to urging of the Holy Spirit.

    I found this book very encouraging, as it reminded me once again of how God is always watching over and caring for us. I found it inspiring and exciting to see how He uses our prayers to bring about wonderful and amazing events. These are true stories of how the Lord guided others to pray unbeknownst to them how important that prayer was to the care and protection of the person He brought to mind.

    I am remembered of one such time in my life. My husband was 37 and had suffered a heart attack. They were bypassing 3 bypasses he had done at 25. The surgery was long and a large number of people were in the waiting room with me. Everyone was visiting. Suddenly I had a powerful need to pray for him. I asked everyone to join me. I looked at the clock to see what time it was. Finally the doctor came out and told me my husband was fine and the outcome was far better than he had expected. Then he said, Oh, there was one thing. When we took him off of the heart lung machine and shocked his heart, it wouldnt start. We tried 3 times and were very worried, then the 3rd time it started. I asked him what time that happened. And the time he shared was the exact time I had been felt the overpowering need to pray for him.

    This book is such a blessing. It made me happy to read the stories of Gods miraculous provision, and to always remember He does the same for me.

    I received a copy of this book free from Revell Publications. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
