I love the Amish and especially their commitment to our Lord. Each prayer is so sincere and heartfelt. I keep this book close to my reading material and pick it up when I want my heart warmed with the presence of God.

I got this for a gift but was so intrigued that I did some reading before I gave it to my friend. The payers are so heartfelt and yet powerful. I think I better understand how the Amish have such faith. What a great book and my friend was so happy to get it.

This lovely little book of prayers can be used for daily prayer or in times of need or thanksgiving. Each prayer is accompanied by a passage from Scripture which deepens its meaning. This prayer book is appropriate for all Christian denominations.

A nice collection of prayers that generations of Amish and Mennonites have prayed. The thoughts expressed in this collection bring the reader back to the time when the Anabaptists were part of the Reformation in the 16th Century.

Beverly Lewis is one of my favorite authors for Amish fiction and in this case, non-fiction. In her book, Amish Prayers, she has compiled a wonderful collection of Amish prayers.
What I love about this book is that the prayers are categorized in different sections. So, if you feel you need encouragement with having gratitude, or if you need comfort, there are separate sections for those topics, as well as others.
The prayers are wonderfully encouraging and humble. I also love that there is a Bible verse correlating with every prayer so that you can also be looking at scripture for guidance.
The book has quaint Amish-life photos throughout. The book itself is smaller in size- perfect for a bedside table.
I really enjoyed this book and think it is a great encouragement to have.
I was kindly given a copy of this from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.

Amish Prayers
compiled by
Beverly Lewis
"A ONE-OF-A-KIND COLLECTION OF INSPIRING PRAYERS USED BY AMISH AND MENNONITES FOR OVER 300 YEARS!"
I was so excited to receive a copy of this little piece of history. "A selection of prayers from Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht is readily available in English." Amish and Mennonite families have been using these prayers since 1708!
I loved this little book!! I understand the concern some people have with prayer books, that we will become mechanical in our prayers and pray without heart or thought, but I believe that can happen whether you are using a prayer book or not.
I couldn't help but think that these little prayers would make great discussion starters for family devotions. Also, some times you just don't know where or how to pray, again these prayers could be such a wonderful comfort in those times.
"We ask you Holy Father, to give us grace that we may live and walk in such a way that we may always be recognized as your servants, who are waiting for their Lord. Whenever you start the wedding feast, may you find us ready and willing, Lord, every hour of every day. Amen"
Can't you see a wonderful discussion coming out of that prayer??!!??
I could share prayer after prayer but then you wouldn't need to buy the book.
In this little book you'll find prayers for comfort, guidance, unity and strength. Not to mention 8 other topics. For a small book it is filled with so much. Did I mention I loved it!
Disclaimer; I received a free copy from Bethany House, I was under no obligation to give a positive review. The opinions expressed here are my personal opinions!

Beverly Lewis who is a fantastic author of Christian Fiction and Amish Fiction, has compiled a devotion book titled Amish Prayers. These prayers have been translated from the German prayer book Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht that Amish and Mennonites both hold as precious possessions even today. With each prayer is a bible scripture that is relevant to the prayer. The prayers are conveniently divided into categories such as: Prayers for Comfort, Prayers for Strength, Prayers of Humility, Prayers for Unity along with eight other categories.
This book is well organized and beautifully illustrated. It is a wonderful devotional for personal use or group study. It will be an asset to any library, I am glad to have it in mine.
I received this book free from Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group as part of their Blogger Review program. I was not required to write a positive review.
