A book review by Amy Hannold, 247Moms contributing writer
As we turn the calendar to a new year, many of us will write a resolution list of some kind. Busy moms may include their relationship with God on that list. As one of those moms, I already have a whole library of books on God and prayer. The trouble is, they are not usually with me when I have a few moments to read.
The Guideposts Spirit Lifters series, of which “101 Moments of Prayer; Inspiring Thoughts for Listening to God, by Elizabeth Sherrill, is included, are eBooks. I loaded this eBook on my smartphone and PC. The first thing I noticed was the bold thematic titles each chapter has. When you find yourself in need of a word of encouragement about something in particular, it could be found just by looking at the chapter titles. Following the title of each chapter is a verse of scripture that also will meet your searching eye or heart – it’s a place to start in your desire to listen to God. Each chapter could be read in the short lengths of time moms have, so it’s likely you’ll finish this book (and probably read it again several times).
A prayer finishes each chapter, showing us how to pray to God about our lives and ask Him for what we need. The stories in this book are from the author’s contributions to Daily Guideposts annual devotionals, published since 1977. The annual devotionals are comprised of personal experiences contributing authors had which inspire all of us to grow our faith in God. I have some of these books myself. With the eBook “101 Moments of Prayer: Inspiring Thoughts for Listening to God”, I can now access this encouragement and a word from God when I need it.
I am confident that enjoying a story I can relate to, of which there are many in this book, and utilizing the convenience of eBook format will bring me closer to hearing from God. I will be shown how to pray and listen to God about the things I seek counsel on, as a result of choosing to bring this eBook along in my busy life.
