A Great Concept: “Proverbs Prayers” Book-Review

John Mason’s hit the spot with this book, taking every chapter of Proverbs and turning it into a prayer.  If there’s a verse about greed, for example, he’ll personalise it and pray about the greed that might be present in his own life.  Scripture text is included in the book, so you don’t have to read it with your Bible open.  It’s perfect if you’re looking for a short daily devotional – a chapter per day of the Proverbs, and then a handy index of principles at the end, in alphabetical order from achievement to words, with titbits from the author and snappy little quotes.

 

I tend to read Holley Gerth’s “What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days” alongside the Psalms.  “Proverbs Prayers” is similar, in that it would make a very good companion guide to the Proverbs.  It brings out things you might not notice yourself.  I’d recommend it if you’re like me and love your Bible.  My only sadness was his focusing solely on Proverbs, rather than the Bible as a whole, so Jesus and His love for all people doesn’t get a mention in any of the prayers.
