Prayers For Today: A Book Review

About The Book:
A collection of classic and contemporary prayers, some derived from Scripture and others from the writings of Christian leaders throughout the centuries, this beautiful volume invites readers into a daily experience of closer intimacy with God. Each day's entry focuses on one of ten traditional types of prayer:
* Prayers of Thanksgiving
* Prayers of Confession
* Prayers of Affirmation
* Prayers of Petition
* Prayers of Renewal
* Prayers of Praise and Adoration
* Prayers to Have Christ-like Character
* Prayers for Wisdom and Guidance
* Prayers of Intercession
* Prayers of Surrender
With 260 entries -- enough for every weekday of an entire year -- Prayers for Today guides readers through a unique kind of spiritual pilgrimage, a pilgrimage toward the very throne room of God.
For any reader who's ever wanted more out of prayer or who's ever hungered for a greater sense of God's presence, Prayers for Today promises deepened communion with the One who treasures the words and longings of His people.

My Review:
A beautiful collection of prayers that will allow you to connect with God like never before. If you have ever struggled with getting prayer time into your day (who of us hasn't), this is a great resource to use. It has a lot of variety in the types of prayers used, so you will not feel like you are repeating yourself every day, and because the prayers are short, they can very easily fit in your daily quiet time. I love the depth of the prayers and felt very challenged as I read through the book. 

A great gift idea for all ages, and I highly recommend this book.
