Praying for the World

I received a copy of AN INSIDER’S GUIDE TO PRAYING FOR THE WORLD by Brain C. Stiller from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.  This is a very complex book, and totally addicting.  I planned to sit down and just read one section, but I ended up reading quite a few.  I set it down on the table and a friend came over, saw it, and asked if she could read it overnight.  Long story short, she kept it for way too long, and I was thrilled to get it back!

PRAYING FOR THE WORLD discusses different countries, such as Cambodia, the country’s history, some background from the author, and topics for prayer.  I have heard about these countries, but nothing in depth, so this book really opened my eyes.  I am a teacher, and in the past I have taught at inner-city elementary schools and a community college.  Many of the students in my classes were from these countries.  Their personal stories reflected what the author had written.

I found the prayer topics helpful for discussions with my family.  I highly recommend this for prayer groups, Sunday schools, and family gatherings.  There is much to think about within these pages, and even more to discuss with others.
