AN INSIDERS GUID TO PRAYING FOR THE WORLD by Brian C Stiller


Have you ever prayed for world peace? What does peace look like?  In the book AN INSIDERS GUIDE TO PRAYING FOR THE WORLD by Brian C. Stiller the reader gets a better understanding of not just what peace looks like in a particular country but what life is like.
The Bible tells us in all our getting to get understanding (Proverbs 4:7) AN INSIDERS GUIDE TO PRAYING FOR THE WORLD discusses the particular nuances of various countries in need of intercessory prayer.In addition to maps of the regions and various facts specific to the area such as population there are list of things to pray for as well as a suggested prayer. (Imagine if everyone who read this book prayed the same prayer!)  It is not necessary to read the entire book and may be more effective to appropriate to focus on one particular region to pray for at a time.
Major countries such as the United States of America are not listed, rather, chapters dedicated to specific concerns are discussed. Chapters such as: “Caring for the Vulnerable”; “Prison Ministry”; “Persecution and Martyrdom;” “The World Prayer Movement”; “The Pope”;and  “Finding New Places of Spirit Empowerment”, all of which confirm why those of us who pray pray: that all men be saved and come to the knowledge of truth (1 Timothy 2:4).

This is an important book not only for intercessors but those who understand that we are in the end times. I recommend AN INSIDERS GUIDE TO PRAYING FOR THE WORLD.

BEFORE YOU PRAY FOR ME by Marsha L F Randolph


 BEFORE YOU PRAY FOR ME - Understanding the elements of prayer


“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark 11:24 NKJV

Have you ever listened to someone pray and you just know that the prayer will not get answered? Have you ever wanted to know if God really hears your prayers? BEFORE YOU PRAY FOR ME PART I- Understanding the elements of prayer" presents an overview of what is involved in faith that leads to answered prayer. 
It is written in Isaiah 55:11 God's word will not return to Him void this means when we speak His words it will reach His ears having accomplished whatever He has said. Either because a person doubts or does not know Scripture prayers often go unanswered. Why?
In a little over 8,000 words this ebook discusses key elements necessary ito have successful prayers. In examining what it means to be saved, what a father does, the words spoken and the importance of the Trinity the reader will become more confident in their ability to recieve whatever it is he or she ask.
The author does not profess to be a theologian nor does she assume she knows more than many of the well known Bible scholars of the day. What is presented in BEFORE YOU PRAY FOR ME is a well thought out book written for those who believe that the key to answered prayer is sending God's word back to Him

THE CHANGING SEASON by Steven Manchester

RELEASE DATE: FEBRUARY 16, 2016

THE CHANGING SEASON is a novel about a young man, and his dog who is looking forward to graduating high school and going to college. The transition from High school to college is not as easy as Billy thought it was going to be; life happens and for him it happens in an exciting but not necessarily good way.
My first impression upon receiving  THE CHANGING SEASON by Steven Manchester in the mail: I don’t like movies or books about pets. My second impression: I really don’t care about the accolades presented, even if they are on the New York Times Bestsellers list. BUT I had agreed to review the book so I started reading the 273 page novel.

It is a very good book, great for those in Middle or High school. (DO YOUNG PEOPLE READ BOOK REVIEWS?) The dialog makes sense and the pace of the story line allows for excellent plot development. The food for thought story is very believable.

I am not a reviewer of young adult books. I don’t know if my opinion makes a difference to the young man or woman who is looking for a good book to read. (A mature adult you will enjoy it too!) Without telling the story, which would be a spoiler, there is no way to do THE CHANGING SEASON justice.  All I can say is: I recommend the book.
