    I was given this book by Bethany House Publishers to read and review. Sad to say I was disappointed in this book. It was more quoting scripture then it was anything else. I thought it would be more thought provoking, instead it's more of breaking down prayers in the Bible. If you want something simple, this book is for you.

    Everything the Bible Says About Prayer

    Compiled by Keith Wall

    Series Editor Andy McGuire

    What is prayer? Such a simple question can be disconcerting when it is put to you. This small book will help you to answer this question and others you may have about prayer.

    Prayer is in essence talking and listening to God. In the words of Phillips Brooks prayer is "a wish turned Godward."

    We are to come before God with the boldness of a child and tell God the desire of our heart. We are to be like those who sought healing from Jesus - we need to know what we want and tell Him, making sure we are heard. But prayer is more than just boldness we must also have humility in our requests.

    Prayer can't be an occasional act but rather a daily part of our life. Prayer is not merely a way to pass the time of day, but a time of private communion and fellowship with God. When we pray we are to pray for a return to righteousness and salvation for all, including our enemies.

    Also included in Everything the Bible Says About Prayer are examples of prayers found throughout the Bible. In the appendix is a commentary by Classic Christian Writers and their thoughts on prayer.

    At just 126 pages Everything the Bible Says About Prayer delivers a lot of information for those seeking knowledge about prayer. Scripture from 11 different versions of the Bible is cited throughout.

    I received a copy of this book from Bethany House for the purpose of this review and all opinions expressed are my own.

    Everything the Bible Says About Prayer is a comprehensive listing of prayers prayed by Bible heroes and the Lord Jesus Himself, though it's not a complete listing.

    This book has been compiled by Keith Wall, and is useful to understand the elements of effective prayer, answers to prayer, and Jesus' teachings on prayer, which are contained in chapters one through four. It has been organized into different categories, making it useful when you need a Biblical prayer for a specific need, which are outlined in chapters five through thirteen. The appendix shares timeless truths from some of the classic Christian Writers. Reading the Scriptural prayers on a specific topic by chapters brought about hope and faith as I read them.

    Some of the categories include prayers for: Guidance; Wisdom; Forgiveness; Salvation; Justice; Protection, Healing; Wholeness; Hardship; Heartache; Provision; Prosperity; Praise; Answers to prayer; Jesus' teachings on prayer; Praying with boldness; and Elements of prayer.

    Though not a complete listing, the Scriptures contained in the chapters are comprehensive enough for a start. The reason I say it's not complete is because of all the prayers listed in my favorite chapter, Psalm 119.

    The appendix includes thoughts on prayer that are necessary for a complete prayer life: Praying God's promises; Waiting on the Lord; God hearing us; Taking time for prayer; United in prayer; Meditation; Persevering prayer; Praying confidently; Intercessory prayer-the many aspects that some of us tend to forget. We learn that God hears and answers, but in His timing. I found this section very helpful in being steadfast in prayer when answers don't seem to be coming.

    The thing that made it uncomfortable for me was all the different versions that were used. I prefer the word-for-word translations (NASB, KJV, ESV, and NKJV) versus the thought-for thought (NIV, NCV, HCSB) and paraphrase versions (THE MESSAGE, NLT). The latter two seem to water the Word down too much and lose the true Greek and Hebrew meanings.

    This book was provided free by E. Hollister of Baker Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

    When the opportunity came to read Everything the Bible Says About Prayer I was looking forward to reading the scriptures about prayer complied by Keith Wall. I'm eager to grow in my prayer life and understanding and application of scripture.

    I found I was somewhat disappointed with Everything the Bible Says About Prayer and really struggled with it especially in the early chapters. I found the switching of translations and paraphrases with every verse very distracting and the reading didn't flow well. The author uses many different versions including the NLT, ESV, NIV, God's Word, HCSB, NASB, The Message, NKJV, NCV, and AMP. When I encounter people jumping from one translation to another a red flag goes up and I'm concerned that scripture is being manipulated and not accurately translating God's word.

    As I read more of the book, perhaps I got more used to switching between many translations. There were a few chapters that I liked including An Alley Amid Adversity, Give God the Glory, Timeless Tutors and the Appendix Thoughts on Prayer by Classic Christian Writers.

    At the beginning of each chapter Keith Wall gives a brief introduction about what the topic of the chapter and how the reader might apply the verses to their lives and some of the introductions were helpful.

    I would have appreciated it, if at the beginning of the book, the author had addressed the reader who may not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and given the plan of salvation.

    I would neither recommend nor discourage someone from reading Everything the Bible Says About Prayer, but I would want the reader to be aware of the use of many different translations and paraphrases used throughout this book.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided to me by Bethany House to read and review. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review in exchange for this book.

    Everything the Bible Says about Prayer? Ok another book on prayer_

    Most books on prayer are going to teach you something new, so I read books on prayer. I am always trying to learn something new on this subject.

    This is a fairly well organized book on prayer. It has explanations that I think even a new Christian could understand, but I would not recommend new Christians using this book unless they were sitting under a very Godly teacher. I did not like the many different translations. Young Christian can lose the meaning of scriptures in some of the more liberal translations. I would only recommend this for more mature Christians. It is a good study and read for a class or individual reading and studying.

    It is a book I will use and read over and over as I study prayer. This book was given to me by Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
