Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Shanklin, the national prayer manager of Promise Keepers, a fast-growing Christian men's movement in North America, credits his mother for being his earliest role model in faith and prayer. With freelance journalist and author Whalin, he encourages men to persevere in daily commitment to prayer with stories that illuminate the power of prayer in many men's lives. Each chapter, grounded in scripture, is devoted to a particular intention, such as prayers for broken relationships, children, and the workplace and in times of sickness, anger, and courage. The chapter titled "Prayers for Strife with Your Wife" may surprise critics who view the movement as patriarchal and exclusive because the prayers exemplify a spirit of humility, gentleness, and genuine respect for others.
