Called to Pray

Linda Evans Shepherd knows prayer. She also knows the voice of the Holy Spirit, so that when He says, "Pray for . . . " she prays. This book is grouped into stories of people who have listened and prayed--grouped by topic, or calling, or whatever. But the stories are stories of miracles where God calls people to pray because of circumstances surrounding someone else. The most poignant of these stories (to me) is the phone call at 3:00 am, when Linda had been praying for and telling her friend about God's love for him. He was at a down point in his life and wondered if God cared for him at all. He prayed that if God was there, she'd answer her phone at 3:00 am. The series of events that brought this to fruition make this story one for the ages. There are hundreds of these stories in Linda's book and hundreds of people touched by someone else's prayers.

The point of the book is prayer works, and these are living, breathing testimonies to its power. The style of writing is easy to read, the stories are short and can be read in short bursts, like waiting rooms, or while you are filling your car with gasoline.

Five stars.

My thanks to Revell Publishing for allowing me to read and review this book.
