Author Michelle Addison Jones gives credence to the experience of discovering the reality of God’s divine presence through prayer. In her previous work, As The Deer Pants for Streams of Water, author Michelle Addison Jones; shared prayers and meditations based on her encounter with God through prayer. In this recent work, the author gives credence to the experience of discovering the reality of God’s divine presence through prayer.
Strengthened by Prayer focuses on the process of prayer (“ask and it shall be given, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened,” Mt. 7:7) which ultimately leads that one who hungers and thirst into Holy Communion with the Eternal God. In this book, Jones explores the connection between this human experience of mystery and transcendence and the Jesus of the Christian Gospel. Through her personal anguish regarding the suffering and subsequent death of her father, the author have found that prayer is the soul of religion.
In its endeavour to clear away the difficulties that hamper fellowship within the living God, this book has used the Scriptures as the basis of its thought. Moreover, remarkable pastoral scenes enhance the meditative mood while readers digest the contents of this book. The Scriptural passages quoted are not employed as proof texts to establish an opinion. They are used uniformly as descriptions of an experience which men and women have actually had with God.
Among many recent writings on prayers, possibly none does more to show its reasonableness than this little book. Finally, Jones’ book shows clear recognition of the simple and central fact that prayer is something the reality and power of which can be verified only by praying.
