Mike4 Stars Out Of 5Interesting prayer BibleJuly 5, 2019MikeQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I like it. Is it packed with prayers ? No.
Is it made with the best paper ? No.
Is it the best Bible ever made ? No.
Do I recommend it ? YES.
I got mine on sale for $20. The hardback has a nice feel in this size. It's awesome to read some of the prayers of faithful believers in Christ and His finished work. This is not an everyday carry or a workhorse by any stretch. The only thing I would change is better paper, and add a blank sheet of paper at the end of each book for personal prayers or notes to be written - that would raise the price for sure. As it is, for under $30, it's a great Bible to spend some time in here and there.
Nay DeniseNJAge: 25-34Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5An Okay Prayer BibleMay 24, 2019Nay DeniseNJAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This Bible is interesting. I was expecting a lot more from it then what I see inside. As much as I wanted to give this a great rating of at least 4 stars, I had to go with a 3 star rating. This Bible is great for those looking to grow in prayer, but it's not extremely prayer packed. There are prayers thrown in between a few verses, but nothing in-depth.
I think the prayers are great as prompts -- especially for journaling. They are scripture-based prayers and they are done by great Christians from church history. There is an author index that helps with knowing more about those who give the prayers within the Bible. There's a prayer index to help you find the prayers within each book. The scripture index and concordance are also good.
Do I think this is an essential Bible? Nope. Do I think it has its good merits? Yes.
Overall, I think you can go without. If you're looking for something focused on scripture this could be of good use, but it would have to do with your preference in Bible.
Julie D.5 Stars Out Of 5Easy To Read and Filled With Beautiful PrayerMay 17, 2019Julie D.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a wonderful Bible that is different than any other Bible I have - and I have a lot!
The first thing I really like about it is the text that isn't so small you can't read it. The text in this Bible is a little larger than most and is really easy on my eyes and I'm reading it. I wasn't struggling to keep my place because my eyes didn't get strained. This is a huge plus for me!
I also love the prayers throughout this Bible. Each prayer correlates with the section of Scripture where it's placed. There are beautiful prayers like this one throughout:
Lord, open my mouth, that I may henceforth speak more boldly and explicitly , as I ought to speak.
I love the prayers because they help me to stop and really focus on the Scripture and pray to God with a quiet heart. These prayers are beautifully worded and gave me a starting place for my own prayers.
There is an author index that lets us get to know the authors of these prayers better. I really enjoyed this!
The concordance, weight and measures table, and a reading plan are an extra added bonus to this wonderful Bible. I also love that even though this Bible is hardback, it's not heavy. This is important to me as I can't really handle heavy Bible's anymore.
This is a wonderful Bible that is a must-have for your Bible reading and quiet time. I really like it and it's become a part of my daily Bible time. I give it 5 stars.

Bible Believing ChristianYouTube ChannelAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible that will inspire your prayer lifeMay 17, 2019Bible Believing ChristianYouTube ChannelAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This review is for the blue hardcover edition, this is a great sized Bible and would make a great daily carry Bible. I love the prayers included in this Bible and it is helpful in building a stronger prayer life cause you can read the prayers from others and it will help you in developing your own way of praying.
The Biblical text is larger (9.25 pt font) and easier to read than the prayers which are quite a bit smaller (7.5 font) and unless you have good vision they may be a little difficult to read but with reading glasses I can read the print.
The Bible is well made with a sewn binding and the design on the cover with the praying hands looks very nice.
I like that the prayers are from a variety of early church fathers, Puritans, reformers and even Jane Austen and the prayers are very inspiring and insightful. This Bible is a blessing.
I really enjoy reading this Bible in the evening before bed and I will read one of the prayers before doing my own night time prayers. This is a very nice hand sized Bible. I received this Bible from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

Cam5 Stars Out Of 5An Incredibly Valuable Resource for Enhancing Your Prayer LifeApril 29, 2019CamQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Prayer changes things. Namely, prayer has a profound and supernatural way of changing us. Prayer can be incredibly simple, but given the nature of it, can be hard to understand or master. That's why I'm so excited about The ESV Prayer Bible from Crossway.
If you feel as though you just don't understand prayer or you need a boost in your prayer life, this is an excellent resource. You'll find a an introductory essay by Donald Whitney who wrote the book, Praying the Bible, that explains the how and why to pray the Bible. Throughout the Bible, you will discover over 400 prayers from the likes of the early church fathers, Puritans, Protestant Reformers, and more. Each book has a prayer-related introduction that explains how to use each specific book in prayer. At the end you'll find an author index featuring short bios of historic contributors and the page numbers of where to find their prayers. You'll also find a comprehensive index of every time prayer is mentioned in the entire Bible. This truly is an incredible resource.
I'm reviewing the hardcover version of this Bible and I really like the design of it. It looks a lot like a pew Bible that you'd find in your church. The blue cover with the simple design is really aesthetically pleasing. It features one ribbon bookmark. It's single column (which is my preference) and the font is an incredibly readable 9.25 while the prayers are a bit smaller coming in at 7.5. I personally don't find this smaller font too small. It sets the prayers apart and keeps the Bible at a very affordable price, but I know some will find it pretty small and might argue that instead of a smaller font, a different color could've been used to distinguish the prayers. I could certainly see the merit of this argument for those who may struggle to see smaller fontsand I prefer a larger font myself (however, you can purchase it for Kindle and magnify the font).
I've mentioned Peter Voth in relation to artwork before and he is again featured in this Bible. You'll notice his art on the cover with the praying hands as well as on the slip cover, dust jacket like wrap that comes on the outside of this Bible. If you appreciate his art, you'll also notice that it's featured in the author biographies where he has contributed his work to the likenesses of those whose prayers are featured in the Bible.
In using this Bible, I really enjoy getting to read the prayers of those who have gone before us in the Christian faith. Reading their prayers inspire my own and at times I even use their prayers as my own. I also love the fact that this Bible teaches you how to pray in each book of the Bible. I believe that praying Scripture is incredibly powerful and can really revolutionize our prayer lives and this Bible is such a great tool to further us in knowing and understanding how to use Scripture powerfully in our lives.
You can pick up the hardcover version of this Bible for about $20.00 on Christianbook.com. At that price, it's a steal. I don't think you will regret the purchase and I truly believe it will benefit you as you enjoy the grace of talking with God.
