Book Review: Pray the Scriptures: A 40 Day Prayer Experience by Kevin Johnson

*I received the book in this post compliments of Bethany House Publishers for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.

Pray the Scriptures
by:  Kevin Johnson

About the Book:
"You desire a deeper prayer life, to pray God's will and his promises, but perhaps you feel stuck. This 40-day prayer experience will energize your prayer life and draw you closer to God through his very words. If you've ever wondered what God wants to hear from you, Kevin Johnson will guide you in praying back to God the words of Scripture, applying them to your life and circumstances. 

"Prayer starter" phrases jump-start your practice of writing and speaking Scripture prayers. Each day's entry includes an introductory devotional, Scripture text, and concluding questions for reflection, discussion, and further prayer."

My Review:
This is a workbook that is designed to help you to learn how to pray using Scriptures.  It isn't a structured workbook, which means you can do the chapters out of order if you like and it doesn't make a difference.  There are 40 days of devotionals, then you get a Scripture text and some questions to help you reflect and even plan for future prayers.  You can write right in your book as plenty of space is provided which makes it a perfect reference book when your done filling it out.
Not one of my favorites but a great book to get your praying on the right track.
