Book Review Touchable God, By Jeanette Levellie

Touchable God: Finding the Lord's Friendship Through Prayer
www.lulu.com

  



Subtitle: Finding the Lord’s Friendship Through Prayer

            Jeanette Levellie has approached the issue of prayer in her unique style; she shares stories about her journey in prayer. She also supplies her readers with prayers for different circumstances they may run into in their walk with Jesus.

            I shared one of the stories with a prayer group in which I participate. It is my favorite one. She calls it “Prayer Cues.” In her story, a friend who was having trouble with her teenage stepdaughter asked her to pray for that girl. Jeanette made a little sign, an acrostic of the teenager’s name, and placed it above her kitchen sink. Whenever Jeanette saw it, she prayed the words she had written.
 
            This is a marvelous way to pray for people needing special touches from God. I have incorporated this acrostic idea  into my prayers. It brings a new element into my prayer life. 

            I recommend “Touchable God” to anyone who desires a closer walk with Jesus. If anyone is struggling with his or her faith, this book can help.

            This is Jeanette’s fourth book. People like her sense of humor and her style. I am certain those who those who read her stories will never tire of reading her works.
           
            I received this book from the author. All she asked was I give an honest review.

    1. I believe she will. Maybe not this side of heaven, but she will.
