Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This combination of my friend John MacArthur's heart-stirring and insightful prayer, joined to the magnificent photography of Dennis Frates is a publishing masterpiece and a spiritually inspiring treasure."
?Dr. Jack W. Hayford, chancellor, The King's University, Los Angeles

"The Majesty of Prayer is a compelling combination of the propulsive power of praying and the soaring inspiration of the aesthetic. It offers irresistible beauty as a portal to prayer for the regular worshipper; and for those who feel a little alienated from God, it is an indispensable path to harmony and tranquility. Especially suited to our turbulent times, The Majesty of Prayer will continue to impact your life in wondrous ways."
?Rabbi Daniel Lapin, American Alliance of Jews and Christians

"John MacArthur's skills in communicating the central message of the Holy Scripture are not limited to his sermons and popular commentaries. In this beautifully designed book the photography of Dennis Frates is joined with John's passion for expressing deep love for God in prayer. Some question the wisdom of using a book of written prayers but these particular prayers demonstrate that there is still an important place for well-written prayers. This book meets a clear need that many Christians have for explicit help in prayer."
?John H. Armstrong, president, ACT 3

"The Majesty of Prayer is more than just prayers and beautiful photographs. It is a thought provoking devotional which will cause the reader to dwell anew on God's goodness and grace. This is an excellent daily devotional which will start your day focused on God's wondrous gifts to His children. So put aside your technology gadgets; pick up this small book and be renewed by our great God!"
?Lois Feinberg-Gonzenbach, teacher and author

"In The Majesty of Prayer, Pastor John MacArthur and photographer Dennis Frates bring us a soul satisfying devotional that encourages and provokes the sinner saved by grace to meditation, praise, and thanksgiving. Together, photos, prayers, Scriptures, sayings, and hymns take the reader to the threshold of God's throne to find mercy and grace in a time of need. For nightstand, coffee table, or bookshelf next to your favorite chair, you will want to pick up The Majesty of Prayer as an aid to help direct your thoughts to the One who gives us ?grace upon grace' (Jn 1:16)."
?Dr. Jack Hughes, pastor, teacher, author, and conference speaker

"Scripture verses with commentary by pastor and Biblical scholar John MacArthur is combined with worshipful prayers, quotes from well-known commentators as well as other writers, and stanzas from familiar hymns of the faith. All of this is woven together and illustrated with the stunning photography of Dennis Frates. It works on three levels; the combination of different themes of prayer and praise serves as a vehicle for personal worship. Secondly, it is a beautifully crafted book in its flow and combination of its featured topics and thirdly it makes an excellent gift for a person in your life."
?Lenny Seidel, pianist and composer, Springfield, Virginia

"Nearly 20 years ago I belonged to Grace Community and I loved Pastor MacArthur's lengthy pastoral prayers. If you're looking for solid biblical truth expressed in prayers and accompanied by gorgeous photos and captivating quotes, you'll love The Majesty of Prayer. I'll be buying a couple of copies for Christmas presents.
?Todd Bolen, Plano, Texas

    Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers Favorite

    John MacArthur has written a collection of prayers and gathered them in this beautiful book, “The Majesty of Prayer.” A statement in the front of this book sums up the reason for these prayers. MacArthur says: "My heart’s desire is that the prayers in this volume will inspire you toward more intimate communion with God, and will stir you to a heartfelt gratitude for the blessings He richly makes available to you." And these prayers did just that for me.

    I don’t always read prayers, but I enjoyed these because they taught me how to pray better and how to be more specific. Some of the prayers in this book are: Delighting in God; God’s Kind of Love; His Mercies Endure Forever; The God of All Comfort; A Father Like No Other; Unending Grace; Celebrating His Great Mercy; He Is Our Everything and God’s Greatest Gift. And all of these and the rest of the prayers are encouraging, comforting and peaceful, and tell of God’s love, mercy and grace. To add to the effect of these prayers, awesome photos taken by photographer Dennis Frates have been added. On the front and back cover and on each page you will find beautiful, breathtaking landscape pictures that have a calming effect on the viewer. Overall, this is one of the most beautiful books I have read. This is a sure keeper. I strongly encourage you to pick up a copy of “The Majesty of Prayer” for encouragement and enjoyment. You will be happy with your investment.

    WOW!! I received this book with two other small gift books, eac

    WOW!! I received this book with two other small gift books, each book was more delightful and this book is just amazing. Beautiful photography, beautiful prayers that truly make you feel you are communing with God in person! Just a delightful book that I know I will read over and over. Prayers that allow you to delight in the Lord, to love God with your whole being, to express yourself perhaps in a way you have never been able to articulate. Prayers that will show you the mercies of our God, including insightful and thought provoking quotes from famous people. Each chapter begins with a Bible verse, includes a prayer along the theme of the chapter (or section) ending with quotes, all accompanied by beautiful photos. A wonderful book, I truly will cherish and enjoy many many times. 48 pages US $ 17.99 5 stars

    The Majesty Of Prayer
    Encounters With God's Amazing Grace
    John MacArthur


    The Majesty of Prayer is a book that presents various Scripture verses with commentary by pastor and Biblical scholar John MacArthur. It combines worshipful prayers, quotes from well-known commentators as well as other writers, and stanzas from familiar hymns of the faith.

    All of this is woven together and illustrated with the stunning photography of Dennis Frate. It works on three levels; the combination of different themes of prayer and praise serves as a vehicle for personal worship. Secondly, it is a beautifully crafted book in its flow and combination of its featured topics and thirdly it makes an excellent gift for a person in your life – the publisher has provided a “to-from-date” page as soon as you open the book.

    You will enjoy this fifty page 8X8 small coffee table type book. If you are an amateur photographer like I am, you will appreciate Frate's work. I love it that they closed this little gem with a stanza from the familiar Fanny Crosby hymn, “Draw Me Nearer”, certainly the central theme of this unique publication.

    beautifully done book of prayers

    Tuesday, July 17, 2012
    Book: The Majesty of Prayer


    Doesn't the cover of this book look inviting? When you open the pages you will have to pause a minute to just look at the photos before you even begin to read the words. The photographs in this book are just beautiful! The reader can see many scenes of God's creation throughout the pages of this little book.

    The Majesty of Prayer by John MacArthur is a nice inspirational gift book that would be appropriate for a gift or as an addition to your coffee table or night stand. Included are inspiring, beautifully written prayers as well as various quotes and Bible verses.

    Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for sending me this book for my honest review.
    Have a day of blessings!
