Overview

Announcing a special new release from Bible teacher John MacArthur–a select collection of powerful Scripture readings and prayers that inspire heartfelt communion with God and gratitude for all that He is and has done for us.

For more than 40 years, John MacArthur has steadfastly committed himself to the careful and faithful teaching of God?s Word. A key outgrowth of his study of Scripture is the profoundly God-centered prayers that precede his sermons.

John?s prayers are the offerings of a heart that is fully committed to honoring God, proclaiming and obeying His Word, and calling others to do the same. In this book, prayers and Scripture readings from across his years of ministry have been brought together to stir Christians toward more meaningful and edifying communion with God.

This book will guide readers, in the most intimate way possible, before God’s throne of grace–giving them a renewed passion and appreciation for their Lord.

    A Privilege To Read

    I received a great privilege in being able to review this awesome book! John MacArthur has been an important part of my spiritual life for many years.
    This is the Publisher's Description and it says it all: Announcing a special new release from Bible teacher John MacArthur...a select collection of powerful Scripture readings and prayers that inspire heartfelt communion with God and gratitude for all that He is and has done for us.

    This book will guide readers, in the most intimate way possible, before God's throne of grace...giving them a renewed passion and appreciation for their Lord.
    I can't begin to tell you how much I "Love" this book.

    Before we begin digesting these wonderful chapter, John begins with Prayers on Worship and the Attributes of God....Ahh! We then head into Prays on Joy and Longing and Prayers on the Cross and the Gospel! Something we all need...Prayers on Personal Holiness and where a lot of us lack...Prayers on Useful Service.

    I highly recommend this book, if I could give it 10 starts or more ...I would!!!

    I received this book from the Publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review!

    Good Worship Source

    What a wonderful source for worship!

    The book is divided into these categories:
    Prayers on Worship and the Attributes of God
    Prayers on Joy and Longing
    Prayers on the Cross and the Gospel
    Prayers on Personal Holiness
    Prayers on Useful Service
    Prayers on Holy Seasons

    Categories are further divided into sections. Each section begins with a portion of scripture, followed by a prayer, that reflects the scripture.

    Thank you to FirstWildCard and Karri James at Harvest House Publishers for my copy.
