Book Review: Amish Prayers

Amish Prayers: Heartfelt Expressions of Humility, Gratitude, and Devotion

ABOUT THE BOOK: (from back cover)
The Amish and other Anabaptist groups have treasured the same book of prayers for centuries, turning to it for inspiration during times of peace as well as persecution.  Now a selection of prayers from DIE Ernsthafte Christenpflicht is readily available in English.  This exclusive, authentic translation from the original German-with an introduction by bestselling author Beverly Lewis-pairs each prayer with a scripture passage and offers insights into the rich spiritual foundations of the Plain people.  Whether used for personal devotions or in a group setting, this beautifully illustrated collection will help draw you closer to God.

This is a tiny little book that packs a punch.  Heartfelt prayers of the Amish that will make you realize how our lives are filled with so much more than we need.  I love this book for it's simplicity and for its sweet illustrations.  Included in this book are Prayers for a new day, divine guidance, gratitude, repentance, comfort, praise, strength, purity of heart, unity, humility, submission and evening prayers.

Each little prayer can touch your soul, and this is a good book to have sitting around for those times when you need to find some inner peace.

* I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from Bethany House Publishers
