Reviews - What do customers think about Praying The Scriptures For Intimate Worshp (Face T?
Face to Face Jan 3, 2007
This book has been a spiritual renewal. I would recommend it to anyone who desire to draw into a more intimate prayer life with our creator.
Great way to really begin your prayer time Aug 26, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. It really helped me in worshiping in my prayer time. It was a real help in overcoming a dry time in my relationship with the Lord. I would and have recommended this book to friends. I have even given them away because it was so helpful to me. My only concern with the book is that the scriptures are not word for word. They have been altered slightly to make them more personal in nature. ALthough this can be helpful it is also a reason for caution.
Peerless Jan 10, 2005
I have been a committed Christian for 35 years and have worked for one of the all-time great devotional writers (Selwyn Hughes of "Every Day with Jesus" fame), so I'm not easily impressed by devotional material; but this time, the hype is true!
This book stands in a class by itself. It has rejuvenated and transformed my "quiet times" and, by example, has taught me how to "pray the Scriptures back to God" and turn them into affirmations in a powerful and penetrating way.
If you want to look forward to your "quiet time" and don't mind it being longer simply because you're enjoying it so much, look no further. Use this book regularly and your faith and personal holiness will both grow more quickly.
Best of Boa's Prayer Books to Date Feb 28, 2001
This prayer book is the best all around prayer book for daily personal (or even family)use. The Scriptures are addressed back to God and arranged by category (with direction to add certain categories of requests inbetween the sections). This adds structure to ones prayer life and breaks the monotony of "grocery list" praying. This one is a little longer than, "Praying the Scriptures for Spiritual Growth" or the "Simple Prayers" books; in my own personal devotions, it takes me about 7 minutes per daily prayer segment.
Boa has written several prayer books, all great, all solid. This is my favorite to date.
ENTER INTO A NEW PLACE OF PRAYER AND WORSHIP Jun 3, 1999
Many times when we pray we don't know where to get started, what to do, many times we just want a deeper prayer life.
This book will scripturally guide you through praying...not only the scriptures, but will guide you in praying for your world around you. It begins with praise and worship of Almighty God, leads you in a confession of Who He is, then guides you through personal renewal, petitions, intercession, and then a prayer of thanksgiving.
One of the things I liked best about this book was that it started out with each section, declaring the Word of God, then it guides you (differently each day) to pray for your leaders one day, your family the next, that you will be a faithful steward of your time and money, for God's wisdom...the list goes on and on.
Both this book and "Praying the Scriptures for Spiritual Growth" are two of the best prayer/devotional books I have ever used. If I could only keep two, these would be the two I would keep. Not only are they easy to follow, they are taken directly from the Word of God.
