Every Season Prayers: Gospel-Centered Prayers for the Whole of Life, by Scotty Smith. Published by Baker Books Grand Rapids), 2016.
Lord, teach us to pray.
May we be bold, yet never presumptuous. Help us to be confident, yet humble before you. Let our prayer be intimate and worshipful, dutiful and joyful, disciplined and hugely expectant. Help us to be honest—with you and ourselves—and utterly respectful.
Show me prayers of mature saints to guide me. Give me godly people with whom I can pray.
Scotty Smith has opened an intimate part of his life in this book of prayers and touched me and led me to want to be more intimate with God. Everyone can find a prayer here to use, whatever the season of life, occasion, or circumstance. The prayers are topically arranged and touch the whole of life.
Every Season Prayers is a lucent treasure in my library. So will it be in yours.
