book review//whispers of hope


"Prayerful lives are powerful lives"
Beth Moore
Several months ago, I was approached about reviewing Beth Moore's Whispers of Hope, a ten-week devotional focusing on prayer. I finally started it in late January and have gone through half of the devotional so far. It is a wonderful and helpful resource geared towards prayer and I wholeheartedly recommend it. 

Whispers of Hope consists of seventy daily devotionals that correspond to a Bible passage, main verse, and a prayer guide. This has become a great way for me to pray with the Word fresh on my heart and has allowed me to keep track of prayers so I can see God's faithfulness in answering those prayers in His timing. It has also reminded me of the importance of daily praising God, confessing my sin so that it does grow deep roots, surrendering to God's authority, and praying for others. 
The prayer journal section for each day consists of the acronym P.R.A.I.S.E.
>>PRAISE <<
 Lift up God's name and mention His character and attributes.
>>REPENTANCE<< 
Confess sins as early as possible. Repent daily of wrongful actions and thoughts.
>>ACKNOWLEDGMENT<< 
Ask God to make you aware of His authority in your life.
>>INTERCESSION<< 
This list will never end! Pray for others!
>>SUPPLICATION FOR SELF<< 
Pour out your heart to Him regarding your own needs
>>EQUIPPING<<
Ask God to give you what you need to be victorious every day.
