debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Proverbs Prayers ~ John MasonDecember 14, 2015debsMaineAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4This book is a small book that covers the book of Proverbs in a way to pray these scriptures everyday. Each day is set up as a reading of the Proverb and then a prayer will follow for you to read. It is set up to be read daily for 31 days and the goal of you having a life changing experience to last your lifetime. The daily read takes about 5-10 minutes depending on how fast you read and how much time you want to spend on it daily. It is a very short book that can be used as a devotional, a small group that wants to study the meaning of Proverbs or anyone that wants/needs to have prayers written out to pray on daily.
I would recommend this to anyone that wants to know more about Proverbs or would like a small daily prayer/devotional read. My only concern is the Proverbs part is in the King James Version and would have preferred to have it in optional versions.

Proverbs has always been a challenging read for me.
My brain wants to make outlines, and it searches in vain for a tidy way to summarize the truth of a chapter. Proverbs 1 and 2 cooperate nicely: wisdom. However, the following chapters veer off into multiple topics, and my takeaway from reading this valuable wisdom literature is that the message of Proverbs is pure and simple except that even at its purest, its seldom that simple.
In Proverbs Prayers, John Mason has examined the wisdom of the Proverbs with an eye towards prayer, something were used to doing with the Psalms. In fact, his thinking has opened my eyes to the promises as well as the principles that run through every chapter. The book keeps readers grounded in the text by including all thirty-one proverbs, with each one followed by a written prayer. Since there is hardly an area of life that is NOT addressed by the Proverbs, praying through them opens the heart to an entire cosmos of issues:
Petition Lord, help me to love those around me by sharing your wisdom and love today.
Declaration of intent Ill not foolishly reject understanding . . .
Statements of belief, dear to the heart of God I believe that you are a fortress, a strong tower . . .
Verbal application of principles If a conflict arises, help me to be patient with others by taking time to hear both sides of any problem.
Gratitude I thank you . . . that a real friend like you always sticks closer than a brother.
Affirmation of critical doctrines It is your purpose that always prevails.
Dealing with sin Lord, I know that I can never make my own heart clean and pure by myself. Only you can do that, so I ask . . .
Im looking forward to working my way through Proverbs Prayers again, only this time, more slowly. And rather than analyzing the message of the Proverbs, this time my focus will be to ask for Divine Help in living out their message.

MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5GOOD RESOURCE FOR PERSONALIZING PRAYERSNovember 30, 2015MoonpiePRYORAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Proverbs is one of my favorite books of the Bible. The author has printed the 31 verses from the NASV Bible. I only read the King James Version but I understand that is a preference. It would be great of the author would publish the book in that version also.
After each chapter is a prayer according to the verse. I love the idea of personalizing prayers and praying them back to God. In doing so we can know we are praying His will. I would not pray these prayers exactly as they are written, but use them as a springboard to making them my own.
As I read them, there were places that I gained insights into ways of applying the scripture to my life. For example Proverbs 3:27, Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. The author wrote in the prayer, Lord, I sincerely ask You today to send opportunities for me to do good to others. I have read that verse many times and understood that when I had it to give I should not keep back. I had not seen it as an opportunity to help others. That is just one of many.
Having each chapter and prayer by itself made it easy to use. It helps to concentrate on just Proverbs. The book is just the right size to carry with you too.
I have always been taught that by reading a chapter a day in Proverbs, you will grow in wisdom far beyond the average person. A wonderful book to have!

I have a question since there are many devotionals already on the market do we really need another one? Well when the devotional is Proverbs Prayers then I have to say the answer is yes. Each daily devotional is one chapter from the book of Proverbs followed by a prayer that allows the point of what we just read to really sink in. It is not easy to make time for Bible reading and Proverbs is an essential part as God put it in the Bible to provide us wisdom and guidance on how to make proper choices. Bite sized daily bits of wisdom that we can use in our prayer time even at the office when we go on breaks or at lunch. This book will be used month after month it is that good a resource. It is perfect to give as gifts to family and friends that they, also, will use month after month and thank you for it. I recommend this book highly!
