I am a mom in her 40's, so this book is not written for me. But when I wish to read it with my children I really struggle with the very light print. My eyesight is not great, I will admit. This is a unbelievable devotional and I highly recommend it for tweens and teens. But I think they should have used a darker print. There is no reason for it to be so difficult to read. I am thinking even the target audience might struggle to read it if they were not in a well-light room or had vision issues. Don't allow this stop you from buying it, just be prepared!
We are really enjoying this devotional together (my 13 year old son and I). My only comment is that this book is printed in yellow, which makes it very difficult to read. I search myself stumbling because I can not see the print clearly.
We just received these today. I ordered two copies so my teen sons could go through them together and write in their copies if they wanted. The print is the color of the edge of the cover, which may create it harder for some people to so, the pages are not dated. There is a page with the name of each month that I assume is for the first day of that month but otherwise, if you miss a day you have to manually go through counting from that page (which isn't marked in a table of contents, either) and obtain to the day's date. I really want they'd included the date on each page as that would create it easier to hold track but the subjects seem relevant and diverse.
This is a very cool bonus for a young man in your life. Excellent for Confirmation or Graduation. This really appealed to my 14 year old son and gave him something that he could relate to for a religious celebration
I have read this book, several times, and given away numerous copies, too a lot of to count. I recommend this book to EVERY Christian. You will not be sorry, to say the least. It is such a HUGE blessing. Every page is packed full of promises from our Father. I can't articulate just how much this small book will bless you, indeed ! I promise, you will reread this several times. Blessings.
This never gets old...it is still one of the best books I've ever read...and when place into practice, God does awesome things...Worth the cash and the time to read it. You will be pleased. Pray the prayer from your heart and watch God move!!
Its a cute small book! It arrived on time and was not damagedMy private problem is I am the type of person that needs things to obtain to the point quickly before my A.D.D sets in. And this book took its sweet time in getting to the point. So, it took me a while to read it to its end. But the info in it is worth gleaning from. As I am sure the author had some grief in gaining this wisdom,Great book for a gift!
Amazing book that shows you through intricate & relentless back & forth scripture references how to pray. We often pray to God for "things", and this book helps you to understand that that thinking is tainted because of the intent of our prayers. At some points, it helps you to understand that you have to break down your prayers and create them primary in order for them to indeed come out of your heart as pure. And this book also shows you that if you pray the RIGHT WAY, there is nothing wrong with asking God for increase...because you believe you deserve it!
Unbelievable book full of unbelievable pearls of wisdom to support tutorial you through your life and understand God's word and HIs work in you. It would probably take you an hour to read through the whole thing, but it is one to read through all the time.
In this best selling book Wilkinson urges some necessary spiritual lessons. It's not selfish to pray for God's blessings for oneself, especially when you leave the nature of the blessing up to God. And there may be some things that God is waiting for us to ask for before granting. We might very well ask for the bonus of being called to do more for God than we are doing, and to be more ambitious in trying to serve. We should live in dependence on God and ask for deliverance from private hurt and from hurting others. All of these are amazing things and the prayer of Jabez is one method of packaging them.Except that Jabez may have meant something else. Since Jabez lived in a time prior to prophetic notions of social justice or the concept of an afterlife, his idea of blessing is more materialistic than any gospel or post-gospel understanding. His expansion of location is literally a land grab at the expense of his neighbor's lives, which he felt he was taking with the approval of God, something so close to today's West Bank settlements that it ought to cause us some ambivalence to use this prayer at all. The hand of God that Jabez sought was more likely to have been as a military power with which to overthrow and slay his neighbor. And since it would have been a lot of centuries after Jabez that the concept of an evil Satan developed, that can hardly be the evil he asks to be delivered from here, although it is what Wilkinson seems to think is the entire focus of this latest request. It may be rather from the magical implication of his name that he asks deliverance, something in which moderns would place small ere is much ambiguity in this book as one passes from a request for a blessing that is left up to God to a specific request that the individual decides on some basis or other must be God's will (like Trinidad, a DC-10, or the delay of a flight that will inconvenience hundreds of other people). Wilkinson should say more on how to distinguish between God's will and our own desires that we too simple mistake for God's. He also touched too briefly on the notion that a person's business is the method in which one serves God and so an expansion of business becomes a growth in divine service; more guidance needs to be provided Christians who mistake corporate greed for doing God's will and earthly success as a sign of God's amazing pleasure, and who may possibly have picked up this book to search a method somehow to serve both God and mammon. For all the talk of Satan in the book, there is small talk of other evils we need to be delivered from, like the religious self-righteousness that convinces us that our wants are God's will and our understanding God's revelation, and also the greed that enriches the wealthy Christian while impoverishing the rest of the world. The book is a best seller, probably because there are so a lot of who are searching for spirituality and for God. If it has helped some search what they seek, well and good; but I suggest that if you are looking for a everyday prayer to say, test the suggestion of Jesus that begins "Our Father ..."
I can see why this is a bestseller. Short in words and promising success if only the reader does this and that. Turns biblical prayer on its ear.Purely this is risky teaching for only the fact that it seeks to turn our attention away from Christ and upon our own relentless seeking what we ripture is replete with examples versus such "name it and claim it" theology. Further, the English translation here of 1 Chronicles 4:9 "and Jabez was more honorable" is faulty and misleading. The preferable Hebrew trnalslation here would be "more honored." See a reliable source such as Keil-Delitzsch, Volume 8, pg. is coupled with the interpretative guideline of scripture interprets scripture will not permit this incorrect app as the book suggests. What about taking up our crosses and following Jesus? What about he who exalts himself I will humble and he who humbles himself I will exalt?Prayer disconnected from our relationship to Christ crucified is what is critical, and is avoided in this book. Further to its false teaching, the author exhibits Pelgiansism (look it up to search out what's involved) on pg. 85 -- speaking of what to do about sin, he writes "I encourage you to rush back into God's presence and create things right, whatever it takes." What about giving it to the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world?This is certainly commendable that Christ's people pray and strengthen their walk of faith, but putting people under the law in his human-centered method and not the method of Christ's cross is unbiblical and risky to faith, no matter how high it is on the best-seller's r biblical teaching on prayer and life of faith, see either Harold Senkbeil's perfect book "Dying to Live: The Power of Forgiveness," Chapter 8 and Gene Veith's "Spirituality of the Cross."
I bought this book several years ago when I really required some encouragement. I also bought the book because I wanted to know what this prayer was all about. A mate is going through some series problems in her life, and I gave her this book to give her some encouragement and hope. My mate is very religious, but I felt this book could really give her a boost in her faith. The book was in perfect condition (except for dedication in book). It looked like the person who received this as a bonus may not have read the book at all. What a shame
Basicially a very watered-down social media app, but with prayers. You can like and share other prayers and post your own. There is also some everyday prayers to pray already programmed onto the app. All in all, not a horrible app, but if you are getting it for the use of devotions, and using the prayers on the app, I'd go somewhere different. Also I am beautiful sure I was the only millienial ever to use this
I have to say when i found this application i was extremely pleased. However , i can only begin the everyday prayer. The morning, evening and night prayers will not open. i can obtain some of the food prayers as well. It is for that reason that as much as i would like to be able to give 5 stars i can't, can only give 3. Fix this glitch and will be satisfied to give the 5 stars...
Lately the application won't download the prayer website and I am unable to post my prayers after spending time typing them out. It has become discouraging. After reading some of the other latest reviews I see that this is becoming a recurrent theme. Otherwise I love the easy idea of praying and being in agreement with other prayers. Hopefully this problems is addressed soon.
I like this app,I want there we're reminders to pray,but that is the only reason I gave it 4 stars,other than that,it is an awesome app. LOVE the fact that there is really calming awesome melody that can be played in the background while you pray,it makes me even more peaceful and calms me down,and I feel like I am more connected with god because I'm more peaceful when I pray
Had to reinstall on fresh ver of my phone, does not connect to enter prayers or view others. Have loved this application for over a year now before this. Help! Still unable to obtain into the website for posting prayers or reading others. Claims issues with internet. I hope you can resolve this issue.
The Bible in so a lot of ways reminds us thst prayer is the greatest weapon of the Christian. Not only that, but it's also one of the greatest ways of communicating with God. Through this Application we can intercede for each other, which is powerful. I give God all of the praises, glory, and honor and ask that He bless the creators of this App.
This is one of my most favorite apps on the internet. It has helped to improve my Prayer life tremendously. When my Spirit is weak and I feel that I cannot Pray being able to just write it out helps. Also having 24 hour access to pray with other fellow Christians is a real Blessing. Thank you iDaily Bread for this application your the Best!
