Proverbs Prayers by John Mason

Experience the wisdom of God in your life as never before

The book of Proverbs is a wellspring of wisdom, offering practical guidance for life and the tools to make good choices, withstand pressure, prioritize relationships, and avoid unnecessary trouble. 

Now bestselling author John Mason helps you make that wisdom a part of your inner life. For thirty-one days, he takes you through each chapter of Proverbs, unpacking the wisdom within and providing a heartfelt prayer based on the insights from that chapter. As you read and pray, you'll discover the principles found in this wisdom-packed book coming alive in your life in ways you may never have imagined.

My review:

  I thought this book sounded interesting when I saw it up for review, and I found it to be so. The whole book of Proverbs is in here, mostly in the New American Standard Bible with some verses coming from the King James. Each chapter is followed by a prayer that is based on the chapter that preceded it. I found the prayers to be well written and well thought out and very relevant to any Christian. They also help bring out the ideas and truths in the book of Proverbs in a refreshing new way.

  At the end of the book is a list of Proverbs on several different topics that are arranged in alphabetical order.

 The book would best be used as a 31-day devotional. It is a new and interesting way to read through the book of Proverbs and get some great application for your life.
