A BOOK REPORT ON
PRAYER/DOES IT MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE?
by PHILIP YANCEY
I never was any good with reports in school, because I didn't know, and still don't know how to express myself, but I will try to here.
To me prayer is everthing! it is like air, you need it! and these days it means even more !
On the back of this book it says ( Prayer: Does it make any difference? explores the questions surrounding prayer that many of us wonder, but few of us know how to express.
That is what got me to get this book! I love to read and can read a book in a day or two and if it is very good, I can read it in a night! but this book took me, much longer to read, not because it was hard to get into , but there was so much to absorb. And for me I had to stop, and look up the words, I didn't understand.
This book has touch me very much or should say the stories in the book touched me.
Particularly these 3 storys
One was about the story of Martha, and Marty when they told Jesus that Lazarus was dead.
Then about a man who was copeing with his wife who has Aleheimer's
And the on that had me in tears, was the one about the time that Mr. Yancey, and his wife were on a tour of a hospital, in Nepal, that specializes in leporosy rehab. And on that tour there was a woman that was badly deformend from leopsy. She was totally blind, she would have to walk on her elbows, and drag her body to get any here. and then Mrs. Yancey bent down and hugged her, the woman leaned in and started to sing , Jesus loves me . Turns out that she was a prayer warrior!
This is a very good book, I'm glad that I read it, and I think that you will to!
and have a Great day!
