Prayers for Our Lives: 95 Lifelines to God for Everyday Circumstances by Mel Lawrenz. WordWay, 2016. ISBN 978-0-9974063-0-6

Sometimes we know exactly what to pray, and sometimes it seems hard to find the right words. That is not unusual. That is why Christians have been writing prayers to support each other for centuries, based on the values and the standards we find in Scripture.

ENDORSEMENT —

“Mel writes with disarming honesty, and each prayer is like a cry of the heart. Here child-like simplicity meets sage-like wisdom, all of it spoken so intimately that living breath still fills each word. Lifelines indeed.”  —Mark Buchanan, author, pastor, and professor
