A simple way of prayer Jul 17, 2007
From brushing your teeth to dealing with disasters, this compact little edition offers suggestions to keep prayer in your life any moment of the day. Only 145 pages, and small pages at that, Unceasing Prayer is divided into two parts. Part 1 offers simple passages from the psalms and Bible and targets them for the mundane part of life. When taking a drink of water: "My soul thirsts for God, for the living God (Psalm 42:2). Part 2 takes on the more trying times of life. When someone needs an assurance of the presence of God: "Before you God will answer, while you are yet speaking, God will hear" (Isaiah 65:24). While it may even seem too simplistic, this pocket prayer guide is supposed to be just that. It intends to make prayer easy and effortless and it does. It's a reminder that prayer doesn't always need to be a formal sit-down (or kneel-down) with the Father, and that a few words of gratitude even before exercising or while feeding the pets are welcome to the Lord's ears. It is neatly designed with a prayer per page, many of which are adorned with simple drawings. The categories are printed at the top of the page to locate easily the prayer you need. It makes a nice gift for yourself or for someone who needs a little support and encouragement in the prayer department.
A Little Gem Jul 24, 2003
I received this book as a gift, and after reading it I realized this book was given to me at the right time. This is also the gift that continues to give. Each time I am able to make someone feel better about something in their life from one of the prayers in this book, the gift materializes once again.
Unceasing Prayer: A Beginners Guide, is set up in two parts with sub chapters. It is simplistiuc but not too simple. The font is very appealing to the eyes.
I challenge all the Saints reading this review to pray unceasingly, no I double dare you.
