From the moment I began reading Susan Hunt’s newest book, Prayers of the Bible: Equipping Women to Call on God in Truth, I knew I was in for an adventure that would take me closer to my Holy God. From the Scriptural prayers chosen, to the topics they represent, to the quotes of honored authors, to the depth of Susan’s understanding of the whole Gospel, I have come to a greater knowledge of basic biblical principles and have learned how to communicate them with more clarity.
Susan Hunt’s books have always challenged me to grow deeper in my understanding of who I am as a woman of God. They can be read and reread with new freshness each reading. In this book, Susan has succinctly communicated with clarity the biblical principles she has been teaching for years and in doing so has created a book that teaches the core of these principles.
The leader’s study guide is easy to use with plenty of Scripture and a lesson plan and handout for each chapter making her book perfect for mentoring other women. There are 12 chapters in the book. But the joy of this book is entering the prayers of our Lord and his saints and grasping the privilege we have of coming with praise and scriptural requests before a gracious and loving Father who is also our Almighty God.
