The words "I will pray for you," are often part of my posts on Facebook or when I'm visiting a friend in Buttercupland. But there are times when I am beyond words. Amelia Rhodes' Pray A to Z gives us the words when we are struggling to find them. Each letter of the alphabet has several entries -- Bullying, Bankruptcy, Bulimia and Eating Disorders, are part of "B" -- and include a quote from scripture, a description of the issue and a prayer.
So many of the topics gave words to concerns that I have and met a need that friends had shared with me. The prayers for Job Seekers, Refugees and Lack of Medical Care spoke specifically to issues I have been praying about. I also found the prayer for Ordinary Life -- the place where we spend more of our days -- beautiful and touching. I'm grateful to Amelia Rhodes for putting this collection together and giving words to the prayers of my heart. I'm also grateful to the Litfuse Group for the opportunity to review not only this book, but others throughout the year.
I didn't see a prayer for blog friends -- if I wrote a book on prayer there would be one -- so I offer this one. My prayers for all I've met on my blogging journey. Prayers for you, your families and your good health. I pray that the year ahead gives us all and our world the gift of peace. Let us say Amen.
I've enjoyed taking a few minutes out of the whirl of busyness to read, pray, and to reflect on G-d's place in my life. Deeply grateful for this opportunity and for all of you.
As ever, thanks for visiting. Keep cozy and take good care.
Please note: I was given a copy of Pray A to Z by the Litfuse Group in exchange for my thoughts. My opinions are all mine.
