My Heart Ever His
As we search for meaning in our world of shallow online relationships and glamorized selfies, many are returning to traditional and liturgical churches. The repeated words, benedictions, and historic hymns connect us to saints who have gone before, giving us a sense of belonging, richness, and transcendence. Written prayers, once cast off as archaic, are now welcomed as guides to tune our hearts to the heart of God.
In My Heart, Ever His Barbara Rainey shares 40 prayers for women. They can meditate on one prayer throughout the week or read a prayer a day for 40 days as a way to express the longing of our hearts to our Father who loves us even as he sees who we truly are. Like the psalms of David, these prayers are honest, sometimes raw. Barbara uses these transparent expressions of common experiences to encourage us to surrender to Christ and help us see God as he is, not as we assume him to be.
My Heart, Ever His provides a stepping-stone to help you become more transparent with God and discover his welcoming embrace.
My thoughts: This book couldn't of been more aptly timed, arriving in such uncertain, changing times. I enjoyed this book of prayers that brought peace to my soul. I love that these prayers mirror the Psalms, in my opinion. They are so pretty and soothing to read! This is an excellent book to pick up.
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
