The prayers of the people in Scripture contain everything from powerful stories of deliverance and explosions of heartfelt praise to desperate cries for mercy and incisive observations about the injustices of life. In the Psalms alone we find both complaints and outbursts of amazement along with whispered pleas that throb with grief and pain.
Why then do our prayers today

LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK! I've read through it 4 or 5 times. Have added it to my morning devotions for the last year or so.

Agree with earlier review sort of a modern day The Valley of Vision but so much easier to pray and grasp.

Similar in scope and power to a modern-day Valley of Vision; I read a few of these prayers every day as a devotional aid, and was often, often challenged, convicted, or comforted by a line or phrase that did expose my heart. As a writer, I appreciated the craftsmanship and the beauty as well; challenged me to think about my own prayers, and everyday conversations too, and be intentional and thoughtful in choosing my words, instead of rambling to fill awkward silences.
Well crafted. He can really turn a phrase. This book could be packaaged as free verse poetry, but poetry does not sell particularly well. A couple selections are metered and rhymed. James can capture without pretense the soul's grappling with the divine and turn that struggle into terrific prose.

Some of the prayers are "raw". Some are more "polished". There are also some short essays or "parables" included. All of it is heartfelt and worth reading.
Awesome book! Really raw emotions. A wonderful read! Can be read at a stretch or at periodic intervals!
