About the book (from the back cover): Scripture tells us to pray without ceasing, but how in the world do we do that? In fact, how should we effectively pray to begin with?
Best-selling author Beth Moore addresses these practical and pervasive matters in Whispers of Hope by walking readers through an easy to remember and apply method of prayer, coupled with seventy daily devotionals and followed by prompts to put this prayer method into practice.
Indeed, Whispers of Hope teaches the manifestation process of powerful Word-saturated prayer in response to a daily Bible reading. In turn, you will better understand how devotional reading and prayer are central to a stronger relationship with God.
My take: Whispers of Hope is a 10-week devotional that helps the reader to focus her prayers and encourages her to spend more time with God. The focus is on prayer, so each scripture reading and devotional is short, and it's followed by two pages to record prayers. Beth encourages the reader to follow the P.R.A.I.S.E. format—Praise, Repentance, Acknowledgement, Intercession, Supplication for Self, and Equipping. In the introduction, she explains what each of those categories means and why she chose them. There's also a section at the back for recording answered prayers. This is basically a prayer journal with focused teaching along the way.
I've only been doing this devotional for a short time, but I can already see its benefits. If you're looking for a deeper prayer life, then I highly recommend this book.
My rating: 5 stars
