“Nick Harrison has compiled great Bible verses, comments on prayer from the heroes of the faith and his insight into a excellent prayer devotional. BUT, the life changing part about this book is the interesting, compelling daily reminder to pray to our God and Heavenly Father. This book teaches us how to pray, but even more importantly it teaches when to pray – daily.” Noel in Seattle
“I gave this book to my husband and it is the greatest gift that I ever gave him. He has used it to minister to other people and it has caused his relationship with God to grow. He has blessed so many of his friends with this book. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper relationship with God.” Melodia in Hollister, CA.
“I’ve used several other devotionals over the years, but I keep returning to this one by Nick Harrison. This book contains a great collection of insight and wisdom on the power of prayer. Nick has tapped into the resources of people from different backgrounds & eras, making it a history lesson as well. With each lesson I read, I feel myself grow through the gentle guidance of God.” Sally, a satisfied reader
“This book was given to me by a dear friend. Since then, I have purchased numerous copies myself to share with other friends. It is a year-long devotional filled with inspiring devotions from various believers through the ages. Rich, encouraging, challenging and growth inspiring. A must for those who desire to grow in their prayer life.” Mary, a happy reader
“To me, this is the most underrated, underpublicized devotional book/prayer devotional out there. I had not heard of it before but received it as a gift. It awakened my faith, drew me into prayer that was alive and faith-filled, and helped God seem “more real” in my life – and I felt like I was really “engaging” with God in prayer as I went through the devotional book and applied it. VERY ENCOURAGING, uplifting and faith building. It has substance too. Each daily meditation has a scripture, a small “clip” from a hero of the faith who were pray-ers, and then a small synopsis called “Pray About It” that invites you into that wonderful world of prayer with boldness and expectation based on that day’s entry. Wonderful nuggets from each featured pray-er for that day. Also, in the back of the book there is a great list of prayer/faith heroes and their books for further reading to build faith and ignite your prayer experience even more. My advice is simple GET IT, GET IT, GET IT (or if it is for a gift: GIVE IT, GIVE IT, GIVE IT” T. Schneider in GA.
“I return to this book the way other people return to “My Utmost for His Highest” (which is also excellent). I’ve been through this book multiple times, and I always learn from it. It always feels new and fresh. It draws heavily on quotes from great Christian writers and leaders of the past, and it occasionally draws my attention to some amazing work they’ve written. I love spending my quiet time with great quotes from the likes of Corrie Ten Boom and A.W Tozer. And those words are so perfectly woven in with scripture, challenges, and prayer prompts. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book.” L. Perry in TN
“What a powerful book! Every day gives simple but profound truths about praying to the Lord who hears and answers us! I’ve never read anything that comes close to this! Nick Harrison quotes from some of the best Christians from the past that had a great understanding of praying to God.” Linda D.
