Review of It's Just You and Me, Lord: Prayers for a Woman's Life
by Marion Stroud
A woman's journey through life is marked by relationships, responsibilities, and concerns.Marion Stroud offers earnest prayers to inspire and encourage women through the daily and not-so-daily challenges of life.
She has written beautiful prayers in poetry form. She includes scripture and quotes to further enhance each message. Headings within the prayer book are: A Woman Within, A Woman and Her Marriage, A Woman and Her Children, A Woman and Her Friends, A Woman at Work, A Woman and Her Family of Faith, A Woman and Her Wider World, and A Woman Growing Older. So you can see that there is something to speak to every woman's heart, no matter her age or situation in life. This devotional prayer book is small and could easily fit into a purse, diaperbag, or briefcase for reading and meditating during lunch or coffee break time. They are short enough that one can easily read them if there is only a five or ten minute break in the daily routine. I would highly recommend this book to those who need daily guidance to make it through the day....I know that I certainly need prayers. This book is another avenue of my prayer life.
