Book Review ~ The Light of His Presence by Anne Graham Lotz

About the Book

ECPA BESTSELLER • The beloved Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham shares a rich treasury of her personal prayers to guide you into deeper, more intimate daily conversations with God.

Why is it that as soon as we bow our heads to pray, we start thinking of other things we need to do? How do we make time to pray in the middle of our busy lives? And how do we know what to say and how to say it?

Like many of us, Anne Graham Lotz has struggled with prayer. Over the years, she discovered that writing out her prayers draws her into deeper, more intimate conversations with God.  The Light of His Presence offers forty of these tender, honest prayers for real-life situations as an invitation to deepen your own prayer life through worship, confession, thanksgiving, and intercession. You’ll be encouraged to lean more fully into God’s promises through this power-packed devotional resource, which includes inspiring quotes from Christians throughout the ages and also has space to journal your own words to God.

As Anne writes, “My prayer for you . . . is that God will use my struggle with prayer to help you overcome yours. And that, as a result, you will be drawn nearer to the heart of God.”

Lotz’s latest is a wonderful book of prayers designed specifically to lead those who want to pray, but have little or no words of their own to do so. Highlighting the deepest yearnings and pleas of a heart that wants to serve God and petition in a way that glorifies God even in the midst of heartache, sorrows and storms, this little prayer book will take you by the hand, and lead you to do just that, confidently.

A truly delightful book designed to lead one in the most essential spiritual need, while drawing you close to the Father’s heart.

*Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. Much appreciation to Waterbrook Multnomah for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
