Review of PRAYING GOD’S PROMISES by Linda Evans Shepherd

This is not really a book that I would sit down and read for pleasure.  It is more, a book to be used for encouragement in certain situations, and I think that the author has done an outstanding job of covering all the possible life stresses.  I was particularly impressed by how well organized the book is and how the author seems to have taken the time to meditate on all of the applicable scriptures, compiled them and presented them in a way that is helpful to her readers.  Although I don’t consider this a book to be read in a sitting or two, it is definitely one to keep alongside your Bible, to refer to when you are encountering challenges in life that require that you hold on to God’s promises for things like His provision, His faithfulness and His strength.  God is able is the theme of this beautifully well-written book.  This book should be considered your little helper and encourager to get through the trials of daily life.  I like how the author presented that you yourself could pray the Scriptures, no matter what verse of the Bible you are using.  This book is a primer in how to do so, as each Scripture that is presented is done with a following explanation of applying it to yourself.  


Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Revell.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions that I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
