Book Review - Called to Pray

Called to Pray by Linda Evans Shepherd could also be called Inspired to Pray.   This book is about answered prayers.   Reading and hearing about God answering another person's prayer is a powerful testimony and motivator for the rest of us.

After reading this book, you will remember to "trust in the Lord with all your heart" like it says in Proverbs 3:5.  The author wants us to pay attention to the promptings of God to pray for ourselves and others.   She created chapters to show us that we are called to pray for protection, rescue, needs, souls, breakthrough, guidance, miraculous wonders, encouragement, trust & faith and others.

You pray and trust God to handle the rest.   He does not always answer in the way you expect, but His answer is perfect.  I like the story of Todd, the college student who had a loan payment of $300 due soon.  He remembered the testimonies of others who received money in the mailbox just in time to meet the need.  So he thought God would do the same for him.   Did God provide for him?  Yes!   He gave him a paint job that paid the exact amount he needed.  It would have been easier to just receive in it his mailbox like others, but God answered his prayer.    The story was an example of asking for something and expecting to receive it a certain way.  Then God throws a curve ball to answer your need differently than you expected..  His ways are not our ways.

You can read this book straight through in order like you would a fiction book.  You can also read any prayer story out of order for just a few minutes.  It is a great way to start or end your day.  I recommend this book for yourself and as a gift to someone else.

Rating: 4 stars
