Power of Prayer Feb 14, 2009
I highly recommend this book. It is truly inspirational and I really loved the quotes and meditations. If you are serious about your prayer life, this book is definitely a must read.
The book saved the day! Sep 10, 2008
I grabbed "101 Inspirational Stories of the Power of Prayer" on my way out the front door, thinking that I may find a window of time to peruse the book sometime during the rest of the day. I was conducting a book-signing event with my book, "Consummate Connecticut: Day Trips with Panache," and the audience was, well, nil. I sat in solitude as the store's patrons passed me without the slightest acknowledgment. My mind felt like it was an overfilled blender of negative thoughts. Refraining from running out in tears, I recalled the book in my tote bag, took it out, and skimmed through the pages. The "Thanks, God!" chapter caught my attention. Reading the story, I identified immediately. My mother, who was Belorussian, also worked as a forced laborer in Germany. She is on in years, but she, too, continues to thank God for the most minute things, whether a fresh glass of water or "the first tomato of summer"!
Suddenly, instead of despair, I felt a true sense of gratitude. Ironically, the minute I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into some other stories, people started coming up to me! (The book signing ended on a high note.) Since that time, I enjoy taking "101 Inspirational Stories of the Power of Prayer" with me on my many travels, which can be quite vigorous since I am a professional travel writer! The book--a good travel companion in life too--is filled with inspiration and that priceless commodity that sometimes seems so lacking these days--hope. My favorite prayer, by the way, is "Thank you!"--and those two words I leave with Sister Patricia Proctor for her wonderful heartfelt collection of stories.
Blessing from God Aug 29, 2008
I have received many blessing from God through out my life but I am a sinner and my faith is often weak. When I find myself in the world and away from the spirit it is usually because I have not been praying and I have not been following my program of spiritual reading. I have found 1001 Inspirational stories of the Power of Prayer to be a great cure for my spiritual laziness. Not only are the stories themselves inspirational but the book is also punctuated with inspirational quotes from the giants of our faith. For me theses quotes are a source of strength. Sister Patricia has also included in the book several "10 minute meditations". If you've ever thought that you can't meditate - try these little spiritual timeouts! Each 10 minute meditation is followed by a beautiful prayer. With the help of this book, I am able to get out of the world and into the Spirit! Thank you Sister P.
Life & Prayer Wonderful Teacher Jul 12, 2008
Reading this book is proof that prayer is a wonderful part of our lives. You may not see the power of prayer instantaneously but after reading these wonderful short stories about real life sure makes you realize it works. Life lessons right in front of us that we don't always take advantage of. Prayer is free and easy ... just read this book and you will see how it works. What a wake up call. Thank you all for sharing your stories and teaching me how to believe in the Power of Prayer.
Great Inspiration Jun 30, 2008
Feeling a little lost? Thinking this book isn't for you? I say, give it a try. These heartfelt stories of how prayers are answered certainly have given me a lift in some dark times. What I enjoy most about this book is that the stories are believable. Nothing huge and earthshaking, no parting of the Red Sea here. Just real people exhibiting real faith and getting real answers. There are stories where answers come almost immediately, and others where it takes a long time for their prayers to be answered. It is the faith of these folks that is so inspiring. I highly recommend this book, especially for those who are at a spiritual crossroads, thinking that maybe praying isn't worth the time. It is. And here's the proof.
