Powerful Prayers of Courage by Jeffery Scott Wallace

4 stars out of 5  ****

This book talks about the courage that is experienced through prayer. A virtue, courage is described by C. S. Lewis, "Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point."

The courage to pray to the Creator of everything, even in a state of shame, guilt, or regret, is the power of His Holy Spirit within those who pray. The grace that is bestowed by God upon those who pray are enriched with a strength and regeneration of vitality when one is sincere. God is very pleased when anyone wishes to converse with Him.

A virtuous man or woman is one who prays, unashamed to proclaim from where the source of their courage comes. One's life is enhanced because of this courage to walk with Christ, to face any adventure, and to enjoy a full life, a life which incorporates daily prayer.
