Prayers for Every Occasion, Ellen Banks Elwell, has written a very handy and beneficial book for prayer. At times, we want to pray and the words just don’t come out, and this small reference / guide / prayer book is very helpful in those situations.
The book is divided into 4 parts ~
Part 1 - - Prayers for Specific Occasions. This is about 100 pages of special prayers we can pray. The section is written with alphabetical titles, going from A to Z. There are prayers for anniversaries, birthdays, baptisms, bridal showers, deaths, for grandchildren, as well as grandparents and so many more.
Part 2 - - Prayers from the Bible. This section contains prayers which are directly from the Bible. The Bible is filled with prayers from many people and this is often a helpful source of comfort.
Part 3 - - Prayers from the Hymns. These are words from many of the old hymns which bring comfort and strength to God’s people.
Part 4 - - Prayers Across the Ages. These are prayers from many of the saints of old. Words which bring us encouragement.
Finally there is an index of prayers to help the reader not have to search all over the book.
The book is filled with words of comfort and strength. It has a hardcover, which is also soft and inviting. Overall, I would recommend this book.
