Book Review: Pray the Scriptures When Life Hurts

Kevin Johnson has created a beautiful devotional for anyone who is seeking to move forward from a wound.  Whether it be divorce, illness, feelings of abandonment or betrayal, we all go through the same emotions.  This book is a reminder that emotions such as agony, loneliness, questions, frustrations and more are all subjects God address in scripture.

Each chapter is broken up to address the emotion, give explanation of the scripture used, break out the scripture with prayer response prompts, and finally, and area with questions for further discussion.  I found this book to be an excellent tool to pray back scripture to God.  Johnson says at some point you run out of words when suffering through a hard time.  This book helps you to find more words to engage God with, and flesh out emotions.

This would be great for a small group discussion if the focus is healing.  I give this book 5 out 5 stars.

**I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by Bethany House Publishers.
