Praying God’s Promises: The Life-Changing Power of Praying the Scriptures by Linda Evans Shepherd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Prayer changes things. Praying God’s promises changes everything. The Scriptures tell us that when we pray the will of God, he delights to answer our prayers. But what is God’s will in any given situation? How can we know it? And if we don’t know it, how can we pray it?
In this inspiring book, Linda Evans Shepherd reveals that God’s will is not a mystery–it’s clearly laid out in his Word through his many promises. Through stories, practical application, examples of prayers, and guided reflection, she leads you toward a more powerful prayer life. Arranged by topic for ease of use, this book shows how to pray God’s promises of peace, for health, for relationships, for our children, and so much more.” Continue reading
have had the priviledge of reviewing a book called “The Stress Cure“. There are just some authors that just “get it” and this author, Linda Evans Shepherd is one of them.

Thank you Ms. Shepherd for allowing me to read your book(s).

But after finishing this book this morning… all I can do is take my heart and my fears to Him. To take them to His throne, and at that throne… I find my strength.
I found solace in the words of this book… I pray that you do too. Continue reading
