Book Review for Tyndale Publishers

     

       A Pastor Prays for His People
       Wendell C. Hawley
      
       Hawley’s book is a wonderful collection of prayers for every
       occasion on the Christian calendar. It is a collection of wise and
       loving prayers to help you through life’s difficulties and
       complexities.
      
       The prayers are divided into twelve sections, one for each
       month of the year. Also, there is a series of prayers for Advent,
       Christmas and New Year’s. They are uplifting prayers, ones
       that can be recited at family celebrations.
      
       The inspiration for this book came when Hawley was visiting
       parishioners in Wheaton, Illinois, over a few months. Hawley
       was struck by how people in his community were struggling
       and how spontaneous prayer can be such a saving grace and
       comfort for these individuals. When Hawley sat down to write
       his pastoral prayers each week, the prayers of this book started
       coming together. And what a blessing they truly are.
      
       The reader will be moved by the compassion of God and he
       will find consolance in these prayers. I know I did and I will
       recommend it to my church group.
      
       I received this book compliments of Tyndale Publishers Ltd.
