Inspired by New York Times bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter's The Prayer Jars series. . . The Prayer Jar Devotional: Hope delivers the same life-changing inspiration as Wanda E. Brunstetter's unforgettable stories. Every reading will help you draw closer to your heavenly Father. Your prayer life will be transformed as you read through these dozens of encouraging devotional readings centered around the theme of hope. With each turn of the page, you'll discover unchanging truths of God's Word alongside meaningful prompts that guide you to write out your personal prayers or favorite, hope-filled Bible verses and then add to your very own prayer jar. (Simple instructions are included in the introduction.) Once you've finished reading the last page, you'll have a full prayer jar of your very own. Use it to infuse your heart with inspiration and encouragement when you need it or share it with a friend who could use some faith restoration of her very own!


The cover is so eye-catching and beautifully designed that I couldn’t wait to see what inspirations awaited me. I love devotionals  because there are  lessons that  help me with struggles in my life while encouraging me to grow stronger in His Word. The idea of a prayer jar is something I want to start doing. It can be as simple as a jar with a ribbon around it. Inside you place a prayer request, scripture or notes of thanks.  I have decided that I will read one devotional from the book each day. After I finish I will place what God has spoken to me whether it be a scripture, prayer or thoughts I want to remember. It is a great way to see how God is working in your life, 

This devotional is filled with topics that we each can grow in. I love how the author includes scriptures and illustrations from the Bible to help us understand about the subject we are studying. It is written in a way  that I found easy to understand and filled me with peace. One of the topics in the book talks about Joy. I haven’t been very joyful lately. I have been so wrapped up in my circumstances that I forget that God is still with me. He is right there with arms opened wide to comfort me and fill me with joy. I have much to be joyful about and I appreciate the reminder from the Prayer Jar Inspiration “God carries me in His arms each day. Praise to God!”

This book will be with me wherever I travel to help me keep my focus on Him. I am making my own prayer jar and can’t wait to put it into use in my life. We all have prayer needs and this is a great way to put them in a place where we can continue to pray. I will continue to pull out a paper from the jar to be encouraged and will include scriptures that will help me grow  in Him. This book would make a perfect gift for anyone and I would encourage everyone to get a copy for themselves, 

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The review is my own opinion.
