Formal reviews and random thoughts of the books I am reading.
Saturday, May 14, 2011
When the opportunity to review this book came up, I almost turned it down. I’m not a fan prayer books – canned prayers as I usually call them – but I was intrigued by the idea of Amish prayers.
I wasn’t disappointed. The prayers are beautiful and reverent, and glorifying to God. There is a real sense of the awe we should have when coming into the presence of the Lord in prayer. They are so full of doctrine that though they are short, I’ve found myself reading one and pondering it for the rest of the day. They are grouped together by type of prayer and each one has a Scripture to accompany it.
A true Amish prayer book translated into English from the original German, this prayer book has become a treasured addition to my library.
I must mention that I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for review purposes.
