Amish Prayers

by Beverly Lewis
Bethany House Publishing

"The Amish and other Anabaptist groups have treasured the same book of prayers for centuries, turning to it for inspiration during times of peace as well as persecution. Now a selection of prayers from Die Ernsthafte Christenpflichtis readily available in English. This exclusive, authentic translation from the original German--with an introduction by bestselling author Beverly Lewis--pairs each prayer with a Scripture passage and offers insights into the rich spiritual foundations of the Plain people. Whether used for personal devotions or in a group setting, this beautifully illustrated collection will draw you closer to God."

I really enjoy reading books about the Amish way of life- fiction or nonfiction.  I chose this book for that very reason.  However I had a hard time reading it.  I believe that prayers need to come from the heart- not from a book to be read and memorized.  I think it might be a good devotional or something to read each day- but not to use as a prayer book- of course if you believe otherwise this might be a good fit for you.

Price: $14.99   Purchase from publisher to receive a discount.

*I was sent a free copy of this book to read and review.  I am not compensated for my honest review.
