About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Light of His Presence: Prayers to Draw You Near to the Heart of God by Anne Graham Lotz

The Light of His Presence: Prayers to Draw You Near to the Heart of God

The beloved Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham shares a rich treasury of her personal prayers to guide you into deeper, more intimate daily conversations with God.

Why is it that as soon as we bow our heads to pray, we start thinking of other things we need to do? How do we make time to pray in the middle of our busy lives? And how do we know what to say and how to say it?

Like many of us, Anne Graham Lotz has struggled with prayer. Over the years, she discovered that writing out her prayers draws her into deeper, more intimate conversations with God. The Light of His Presence offers forty of these tender, honest prayers for real-life situations as an invitation to deepen your own prayer life through worship, confession, thanksgiving, and intercession. You'll be encouraged to lean more fully into God's promises through this power-packed devotional resource, which includes inspiring quotes from Christians throughout the ages and also has space to journal your own words to God.

As Anne writes, "My prayer for you . . . is that God will use my struggle with prayer to help you overcome yours. And that, as a result, you will be drawn nearer to the heart of God."


In the introduction of this book, the author admits that she has trouble with prayer and it's as if she knows me personally, because her problems are problems that I often face. Concentration, Consistency, and Content are the "C problems" and Anne Graham Lotz has a solution. The Light of His Presence has "prayers to draw you near to the heart of God" and these prayers speak to people of all ages, in all stages of life. Lotz examines a multitude of subjects and the Bible scripture and quotes sprinkled throughout provide much needed encouragement and comfort.

The Light of His Presence
is filled with forty inspirational prayers and it's the perfect book to keep nearby. It would also be a great gift for others!

I received a complimentary digital copy from the publisher. A favorable review was not required and no compensation was received. These thoughts are my own.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
