In these days of rampant turmoil and uncertainty, Yvonne M. Morgan’s Rest in God: A Prayer Journal with 100 Prayers and Scriptures for Daily Needs comes like a healing balm to the soul and like a soporific to the anxious heart. Morgan’s personal experience, both as a mother and grandmother and as founder of the Orphan Relief Effort for Nepal and Myanmar, has led her on an ever closer journey to God. The Prayer Journal focuses on relieving the spiritual suffering of those of the Christian faith, with daily prayers revolving around short excerpts from the Bible, and focusing on such reassuring themes as comfort, guidance and harmony. In addition, the author provides the texts of specific prayers that come from various Christian denominations, and which include the Catholic Prayer, St. Patrick’s Prayer for strength and John Wesley’s Covenant Prayer.
Yvonne M. Morgan’s multicultural experience comes to the fore in Rest in God: A Prayer Journal with 100 Prayers and Scriptures for Daily Needs—she clearly has wide-reaching compassion for, and empathy with, Christian believers across the globe. I especially love the way in which she encourages the believer in their personal journey with God. By leaving open sufficient space after each prayer and reading for the diarist to develop their own prayers, and to record how they have been answered, Morgan promotes the strengthening of individual faith and the burgeoning of a joyful spirit of thanks. Truly, this is a journal well worth acquiring, no matter whether you’re at the start of your journey with Christ, or a believer with many years’ experience, but who sometimes falters and doubts.
