CBR Review:
A sweet, small book filled with prayers that the Amish and Mennonite, and Anabaptist groups have been saying and using for centuries.  A book that will lead you into prayers for a new day.  Prayers for forgiveness, praise, purity of heart, strength, and many other occasions. 
Each prayer is matched up with a Scripture verse that will go with that prayer, thus making the book very easy to use for a devotional guide. 
I personally enjoyed the prayers of praise, and was astounded at the many things they also gave thanks for in the prayers of thanksgiving, things that would have never crossed my mind to thank God for.  Another thing I noticed in these prayers was that they are written in common every day words, not a lot of "thou's" and "thee's"  but language you use daily.  They were also very reverent towards God.  All in all I think this little book is a wonderful tool to place in the hands of anyone.  Only 139 pages long with beautiful illustrations, you will be able to read this book very quickly.  I give it a 4 star rating. 

This book was provided for review purposes by Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group, no payment was received for this review.
