Book Blog Tour Stop - Proverb Prayers: Praying The Wisdom of Proverbs Into Your Life Every Day by John Mason
Praying the Wisdom of Proverbs into Your Life Every Day
Experience God’s wisdom as never before and find encouragement, peace, answers, and a better life through this devotional prayer book.
Many people read a chapter a day from the book of Proverbs as a regular devotional practice. They consider it their favorite book in the Bible because its daily practical guidance offers tools to make the right choices and have the inner strength to stand against pressure, size up a situation and know how to respond, make fewer careless mistakes, and avoid unnecessary trouble.
In these pages, readers will find a chapter from Proverbs followed by a heartfelt prayer that includes all of the insights from that chapter. In a mere thirty-one days they can pray all of the wisdom of Proverbs for their lives.
The biblical book of Proverbs, which are accredited to have been written by King Solomon, is often referred to as the book of "wisdom." Fairly short, with just 31 chapters, the book contains rules for living that have been handed down from generation to generation for thousands of years. And they are still as meaningful and important today as they were when they were written.
In his book, "Proverb Prayers," John Mason has taken each one of these Proverbs and has created a devotional study that includes a specific prayer written for each chapter, as well as Mason's insight to how each Proverb can be used in today's daily living. Written in easy to understand language, Mason has created a unique look at how the wisdom of the Bible can be incorporated for today's living through prayer and study.
He also includes a section, "Proverb Principles," that can be easily found for for different situations, such as faith, guidance, trust, and motivation, among other things.
I recommend "Proverb Prayers" as an easy to use study guide to be included along with daily Bible study, or as purely a study on it's own.
