I enjoyed reading this lovely devotional book of everyday prayers for women. The devotional prayers are divided up into six sections and cover different aspects of a woman's life, including marriage, children, friends, work, family of faith, and the wider world. Many everyday issues are covered with sensitivity, and include heartfelt prayers that provide direction for women seeking Biblical wisdom. Practical applications are provided for women who are praying through difficult and challenging circumstances in their lives. It's Just You and Me Lord is a book you can pick up and read in small sections. Or, you can plan to use the book for your daily devotions over two to three months. The devotions include relevant quotes, applicable Bible verses, and a prayer that you can pray as you read. I appreciated the wisdom and insights I gained from each devotional prayer. I recommend this book to women looking for a helpful devotional book that provides a focus for their daily prayer time. Many thanks to Lion Hudson (Monarch Books) for providing a review copy.
All right, I have to admit it, several of these prayers brought me to tears. Why? Because I prayed along with them. They became mine, from the depths of my heart. Marion's honesty captures the thoughts and longings we all have. They reach out to every stage, every season of our lives. They touch every and I mean EVERY subject, even the unspeakable. Ladies, you need to read and pray these prayers from your heart. Bless you, Marion for your openness to God and for sharing with us.
The way I see it there are a few ways you can read this book. One is to use it as a part of your daily devotional reading, particularly to direct part of your prayer time. Another way is to use it as a tool when you don't know what to pray when faced with certain situations. The topics covered in this book are very wide and relevant for women (and men) in all stages of life, regardless of marital status or age. However you decide to read this book, it will be worth it. You may get a different perspective on prayer, be encouraged in your walk with God, or find help in a time of need.
Well done to Marion Stroud for this heartfelt book of prayers, 'It's Just You and Me, Lord'. While I don't normally relish relating to other people's written prayers, I found the ones in this little volume very honest and practical--indeed, like a conversation with a close and understanding friend. I also really appreciated the Scripture passages used throughout, as well as brief quotations from authors such as Paul Tournier, John Powell, Elisabeth Elliot and many more. The breadth of topics Marion covers, including prayers to do with marriage, faith, friends, family and issues further afield, is impressive and I was particularly challenged by some in the final section of the book 'A Woman and the Wider World'. But my favourite would have to be 'Will the Real Me Please Stand', from the very first section, 'A Woman Within'. I trust this beautifully presented book will bless many. Thanks to the publisher, Monarch Books, for providing me with a copy to review.
