What a timely book, addressing the difficulty of Nation, and even the whole world, is facing right now. Max agrees that yes, times are tough right now, but guess what? God is still on the throne! Throughout the ages people have faced difficult and trying times, but God is still with us. This little book encourages us to reach out to God in the best way possible – prayer. Using Scripture, it assures us that our prayers will be heard and that hope, peace and understanding are ours to be had.
My favorite part of this little book is the prayer included at the end, called Do It Again, Lord: A Prayer for Troubled Times. It is adapted from a prayer written for America Prays, which occurred just a few days after 9/11/01. It fit then and it fits now. I loved it then and I love it now. This is a great little book of encouragement. Thanks again, Max!
