Book Recommendation: Dear God, it’s me and it’s urgent by Marion Stroud

Dear God its me and its urgent

Book Description:

Here are soul-building moments for every woman, at every age. These prayers are ideal for private devotion and meditation, or for sharing with other women. Inspiring and enriching, they are rooted in everyday life. Topics range widely, from a Bride’s Prayer on the eve of her wedding to Shopping with a Daughter and Blue Monday. With imagination and care Marion offers prayers for every season. Each prayer is enriched with Scripture and thought-provoking quotations.

Narelle: I enjoyed reading this devotional prayer book. The front cover includes the description ‘Prayers for every season of a woman’s life’ and it sums up the essence of this lovely book. The devotional prayers are divided up into six sections and cover different aspects of a woman’s life, including marriage, children, work, caring, and growing older. Topical issues are covered with sensitivity and include heartfelt prayers that provide direction for women seeking Biblical wisdom.

Dear God, it’s me and it’s urgent is the type of book you can pick up and read in bite size chunks. Or, you can work through it each day over three months. The devotions include relevant quotes, applicable Bible verses, and a prayer that you can pray as you read. I appreciated the wisdom and insights I gained from each devotional prayer. I recommend this book to women looking for a helpful devotional book that provides a focus for their daily prayer time.

Many thanks to Lion Hudson (Monarch Books) for providing a review copy.

About the Book

Women are most likely to express their deepest thoughts to a trusted friend. At its best, prayer is simply that; a conversation with a friend who is never too tired, too busy or too pre-occupied to listen and respond.

From personal prayers to prayers about family,friends and the wider world, interweaved with Scripture and thought provoking quotes, this inspirational resource helps women of all ages to genuinely connect with God,and build and maintain a strong prayer life.

Narelle: I enjoyed reading this lovely devotional book of everyday prayers for women. The devotional prayers are divided up into six sections and cover different aspects of a woman’s life, including marriage, children, friends, work, family of faith, and the wider world. Many everyday issues are covered with sensitivity, and include heartfelt prayers that provide direction for women seeking Biblical wisdom. Practical applications are provided for women who are praying through difficult and challenging circumstances in their lives.

It’s Just You and Me Lord is a book you can pick up and read in small sections. Or, you can plan to use the book for your daily devotions over two to three months. The devotions include relevant quotes, applicable Bible verses, and a prayer that you can pray as you read. I appreciated the wisdom and insights I gained from each devotional prayer. I recommend this book to women looking for a helpful devotional book that provides a focus for their daily prayer time.
