We want to turn to God at the end of each day, but often don’t find the words to express our deepest feelings and longing. This collection of prayers is one of the few daily devotionals especially intended for use in the evening.

Blumhardt’s words bespeak a certainty in God’s nearness. The peace that flows from them comes from an unshakeable conviction that God’s kingdom is indeed on the way. In stormy and challenging times like our own, most of us need this reassurance frequently, if not daily.

My take on this book:
First of all I would like to say that the cover of this book fits perfectly, the peaceful tranquility I feel when I look at the cover is the same feeling I get whenever I open the book to read it. The book is broken down into 365 evening readings with each page consisting of a scripture verse and then a prayer. There is plenty of space at the bottom of each page to jot down notes or feelings that you may want to remind yourself of. There are also several blank pages at the end of the book that I am using for notes and reminders of my favorite prayers. I like that it is specifically geared toward evening use,making for a wonderful way to wind down at the end of a busy day. Evening Prayers is a wonderful addition to my daily Bible reading program, and while I have been reading in the month of December I plan on beginning this book with the New Year and using it as an evening devotional for 2015. I think this book would make a wonderful gift for anyone looking to find a little quiet time at the end of the day to reflect and pray. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
