Pray the Scriptures

Pray the Scriptures
A 40-Day Prayer Experience
Kevin Johnson

Written to follow the same concept as his first book Pray the Scriptures Bible, the author takes the concept of praying about and through certain Bible passages. Forty different scriptures are used for each day. A small devotion on the authors thoughts begins the chapter. The next part is a verse,  followed by questions with space for answers. It ends with a section called Reflect + Pray + Discuss with space for answers. The author is trying to get the reader to pray using scripture and to become so use to praying that it becomes an every day, every moment thought.

The idea behind this concept is sound. If used properly the reader will become in the habit of praying more and reflecting more on what is read in the scriptures. The book was well written and I liked the idea, but some of the sections were a bit dry. The book would work well in place of a devotional.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
