Book Review: Every Season Prayers

every season prayersEvery Season Prayers: Gospel-Centered Prayers for the Whole of Life by Scotty Smith is a nice compilation of scripted prayers for those who are struggling with finding words to put to what they are feeling within their hearts.

The various sections of the book can also be of help in assisting a person to learn how to pray – for external situations, internal feelings, thoughts, Scripture itself, laments, and in various seasons of life.

The book is a great starter and prayer aid that fulfills its stated design.  An addendum to the book that directly helps a person formulate their own gospel-centered prayers (such as is found in the introduction to the chapter on praying laments – would have been a nice addition to the book.
