Guest Post from Shirley & Harriet

God writes the best stories … and sometimes we get the privilege of recording them.
Co-writers Harriet E. Michael and Shirley Crowder have a common interest in all things Biblical. Over the past few years they have worked together on a series of books on the topic of prayer. “Prayer Warrior Confessions” is the fourth & final book in that series. It is a book filled with true stories of experiences with and lessons learned about prayer. This collection of true stories was written by various contributors who retell a story from their lives about a time they saw prayers answered, and/or learned a new lesson about prayer. These stories are heartwarming, exciting, sad, funny, and will touch your heart in so many ways while also sharing deeper insights into prayer.
Yes, God creates the best stories & He writes them on the parchment of our lives, teaching us lessons through them.


The stories in this book helped me to remember that He doesn't care how small or unimportant a prayer may seem to some; He  wants us to have faith that He hears us and answers prayers in His own way. There were many stories in here that made me cry and gave me hope. What a wonderful feeling to know that your parents pray for you daily. We may not know who prays for us, but through these stories those prayers are powerful and are heard. 

The one story that really stood out to me was "When My Son Calls." I have three sons and I related to the author's wonderful journey with her sons. Like the author, when one of my grown sons call, I get excited and a bit anxious at the same time. They are each different but bless my husband and I everyday. One is very outgoing and loves  to give hugs. The other two are more reserved and quiet. I cried as I read this story because I know how much I love to hear from my boys. I did forget that God likes to hear from His children as well. He wants us to talk to Him, come to Him in prayer and spend time with Him.  Thank you for reminding me that as a child of God, I need to spend more time with Him in prayer. 

Prayer is such a vital part of a Christian's life and I have always thought that no matter how insignificant a prayer may seem to some, for me it was of the most powerful ways to talk to God. He does hear our prayers  but He may not always answer them the way we want. I encourage you to take your time reading through this book and allow the words to encourage you, bless you and remind you how powerful prayer is.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
