5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done! April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A perfect devotional and just what I've been looking for! Using the Psalms and Proverbs as a framework for reading and praying, drawing closer to the Lord, this book is ideal as a daily morning read. Using the modern God's Word translation, it brings a more contemporary feel to God's word and its application. I will be looking to this book daily, and hope that many will. This is a sampling of the full Bible which is soon to be released. It gives the reader a good taste, and I am hopeful for the full text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refresh and Renew September 4, 2014
By Joyce
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Pray the Scriptures Bible: Psalms and Proverbs," is now a daily favorite of mine. I love the Psalms, and turn to them many times a day. It is here, as I commune with God, that I find my spirit refreshed, and my faith, hope, peace, and joy renewed. An easy to understand translation, I am constantly and beautifully reminded, herein, of God's everlasting promises of His love, protection, and provision for all who love Him, and are led by His Spirit. I would highly recommend this Bible to teens and adults everywhere, who love God, and delight in His Word. I would also highly recommend this work for youth and adult bible students; for those who enjoy the Bible as a literary work; or, for those who simply wish to gain greater insight into the beauty, source, and/or meaning of the Psalms and Proverbs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its title. November 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of those times I'm tempted to use that awfully hackneyed phrase, "it does what it says on the tin".

I got this for free - personally, I don't think I'd pay the full price for it, but I do think it's a good idea that is reasonably well executed. There is quite a lot of bible and prayer here for a fiver, so given how expensive bibles can be, it's really not bad value.

It uses the GW translation, which is not one of my favourites but perfectly OK. The bible is laid out so that a verse or two of the translation is followed by a "prayer" version. I have to be honest and say I didn't find the prayer bits hugely inspirational, there's nothing earth shattering here, but as an introduction to praying the psalms it definitely works.

It's also easy to navigate, and I've come across no issues in the Kindle version.

Overall I think it's OK value for money, and a good idea executed proficiently.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! May 24, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this from my mom for mother's day and she loves it. The original description said that there might be a few markings or faint wear on the book since it was used, but it honestly looks like I purchased it new right off the shelf. I was very pleased with this purchase and would definitely buy from this seller again!
