Publisher Comments:

With over a million copies in print, John Baillie’s classic collection of scripture and prayers is a beautiful daily devotional, the perfect companion guide to any Christian seeking to enrich their life through growth in prayer.

In this book of personal devotions, noted theologian Dr. John Baillie offers personal prayers for people who are seeking a better understanding of God and themselves. Intermingling adoring and meditative thoughts about God with a concern for the social and individual good, these daily invocations help and inspire us to search within our inner selves and find the deep religious beliefs that lie within.

Synopsis:

In this book of personal devotions, Dr. Baillie inspires a deep searching of one's inner life through prayer by writing each prayer so that it seems to have been written specifically for the reader. In his understanding of the aspects of God's relation to man and man's relation to God through prayer, Dr. Baillie intermingles adoration, meditation, and intercession with a strong sense of the importance of social needs, as well as the needs of the individual.

This little book provides an inspirational way to start and finish your days. It will carry you far beyond the commonplace prayers of similar books as Baillie adores God and leaves no one out of his intercessory prayers. Wonderful book! Wonderful gift!
