Review: Called to Pray by:Linda Evans Shepherd

Called to Pray
About the Book:
When you feel a nudge to pray, what will you do?

Most of us have felt it at one time or another: that unexplained prompting in our hearts to stop and pray for a friend, a loved one, or even a stranger. Sometimes we are even awakened from a deep sleep with an even deeper need to go to God in prayer. Where do those urges come from? Are they truly from God? Or are they merely stray thoughts? And if we respond in prayer, are others’ lives affected at all?

In Called to Pray, Linda Evans Shepherd shares dozens of inspiring true stories of people who have heeded God’s call to pray and the astonishing results of those impromptu prayers. Through accounts of people being protected from harm and rescued from danger, of needs being met and hearts being encouraged, you’ll see that God is involved in an active and dynamic relationship with us—and that we can be part of his plan to bless others.

If you have ever wondered if prayer has any real effect or doubted that God communicates with us personally, this heart-stirring book will amaze, inspire, and equip you to respond to those holy promptings.

My Review:
 When we look at it through our earthly eyes, we see that prayer is the only real power that we have. Interceding for someone is so very important. Your prayers for that individual and their situation could mean life or death for them. What would we do if no one wasn't willing to intercede for others? This world is already a terrible place but without the hope of Jesus Christ and of God changing things around we would truly be lost.

 The author collected stories that prove just how powerful this prayer thing is and how our Father can turn everything around in an instant just based on faith alone. We have a Father that truly wants the best for all of us and its proven in the stories the author shares. Very inspiring and encouraging for those of us with unanswered prayers.
