Proverbs Prayers By John Mason

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.
