Rated 5 out of 5 by from Illuminates the Wisdom of Proverbs! We are all familiar with the wellspring of wisdom offered in the Biblical book of Proverbs. Many people, myself included, often read this book over the course of a month since it conveniently contains 31 chapters. Sometimes, however, it can be a little more difficult to actually incorporate that wisdom into our daily lives. If you seek to make the practical guidance of Proverbs a deeper part of your inner life, I am so excited to share a new, certain-to-be treasured book with you... "Proverbs Prayers: Praying the Wisdom of Proverbs for Your Life" was written by minister, speaker, and best-selling author John Mason, and published by Revell in the fall of 2015. This little book contains the full text of Proverbs, divided chapter by chapter. What is the unique part, you ask? Why not just read the book in your Bible? Well, after each chapter, Mr. Mason has written a beautiful, in-depth and heartfelt prayer that carefully corresponds with that day's reading of the Proverbs chapter. The prayers incorporate each aspect of the specific chapter, and allow readers to internalize the words of wisdom in a deeper way. More importantly, the prayers allow us to take our requests for gaining wisdom to the throne of our Heavenly Father, praising him and asking him to guide us into greater understanding as we go through the activities of our day. As Mr. Mason states, "When you read each proverb and pray the corresponding prayer, you will be asking the Lord to cause every promise and principle from that chapter to come alive in your life. As you do, I believe God is going to show you some things you've never seen before." As I continue to read this book each day, I am discovering the truth of these words. It truly enriches and strengthens my insight into Proverbs beyond measure. Please, don't hesitate to give this little book a try for yourself! It will impact you, and God's wisdom will be illuminated in bright new ways. I am grateful to have received a copy of this book, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GOOD RESOURCE FOR PERSONALIZING PRAYERS! Proverbs is one of my favorite books of the Bible. The author has printed the 31 verses from the NASV Bible. I only read the King James Version but I understand that is a preference. It would be great of the author would publish the book in that version also. After each chapter is a prayer according to the verse. I love the idea of personalizing prayers and praying them back to God. In doing so we can know we are praying His will. I would not pray these prayers exactly as they are written, but use them as a springboard to making them my own. As I read them, there were places that I gained insights into ways of applying the scripture to my life. For example Proverbs 3:27,” Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.” The author wrote in the prayer, “Lord, I sincerely ask You today to send opportunities for me to do good to others….” I have read that verse many times and understood that when I had it to give I should not keep back. I had not seen it as an “opportunity” to help others. That is just one of many. Having each chapter and prayer by itself made it easy to use. It helps to concentrate on just Proverbs. The book is just the right size to carry with you too. I have always been taught that by reading a chapter a day in Proverbs, you will grow in wisdom far beyond the average person. A wonderful book to have! I received a copy of this book free from Revell Publications. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
