Book: Proverbs Prayers

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.


As you may have noticed I normally review fiction on this blog.  But I also like simple straightforward devotional books.  I haven't found a good one in quite a few years and I thought this one looked like it might be good.  I am very pleased with it. 

Proverbs Prayers is simple with pull out cover flaps that can be used as bookmarks.  Each chapter of Proverbs covers two pages with the verse notations.  On the following two pages is the prayer that translates the Proverbs into life application.

I really like this format, how simple it is, and how manageable it is for my life right now.  But even if I wasn't crazy busy I would appreciate it.  No frills or stretching to make a connection.  Just the timeless truths followed by honest prayers.  No, they don't all fit my life perfectly right now, but a lot of them do and the way they are worded help you to think about things I don't normally think about while reading Proverbs.

This is one that will definitely be added to my permanent library.
