Yours Is the Day, Lord, Yours is the night/ Book review

Edited by Jeanie and David Gushee

The Gushees have brought together prayers from the earliest days of Christendom through 2012. The intent of the book is that believers in Christ will use these prayers as a spring board for times of personal devotions. A prayer for the morning and another prayer for the evening appear for each day of the year. Also the Gushees included information about the Lenten and advent season. Interspersed throughout the volume are pen and ink drawings of certain events in the Bible.
I have enjoyed reading this collection of prayers. One particular morning I read several prayers. As I read them, I felt the presence of God beside me. Early that afternoon, I had to straighten something out with a merchant in our town-they had charged me a fraction of the price on a purchase I had made. God was with me during my discovery and when I went to resolve the error. This book is very well formatted with a Calendar of the Movable Holy Days for the years of 2013 through 2017 at the beginning. The editors include an extensive bibliography as well as a useful index, arranged by author’s names.
I would recommend this book to anyone, clergy or laity, who is searching to draw closer to the Lord.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson, Inc., through their BookSneeze program. All I had to do was read it and give an honest review.


  1. I like the cover. For some reason, it caught my eye.

    Some of those old prayers are precious, aren't they? I'm glad you've been experiencing His presence during this beautiful season.

    1. Thank you, Rhonda. We have a God who walks with us, no matter the circumstances we face.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
