Terrebonne, Quebec (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
In “Pourquoi prier quand on peut s’inquiéter!?” (published by iUniverse), the new inspirational, French-language book by Marianne Petit-Clerc and Carole Silvera, readers are told true stories that usher them toward the realization that God can make the impossible possible if people simply ask and believe.
According to Petit-Clerc and Silvera, people are too often agitated and worried. They suggest that there is a clear alternative. In “Pourquoi prier quand on peut s’inquiéter!?,” they show readers that those who can call God their Father and who fulfill the conditions written in the Bible shouldn’t get up-tight, because they can count on His promises.
An excerpt from “Pourquoi prier quand on peut s’inquiéter!?” (translated into English):
“We are conscious of the fact that «asking» is only one aspect of prayer, and that there are conditions to fulfill before we can expect God to answer our prayers. We have shared these anecdotes in order to encourage you to claim the 7,487 promises in the Bible, and to help you to realize that the Lord loves you, that He’s waiting for you to talk to Him, and that He wants to please you... according to His will.”
Petit-Clerc and Silvera believe that people are in need of guidance in resolving their problems. “We trust that these anecdotes serve to encourage the readers to put their confidence in the Lord in all kinds of situations and to claim the promise that He made in 1 Peter 5:7, which reads, ‘Casting all your anxiety upon Him; because He cares for you,’” says Petit-Clerc.
