I’m Praying For You

Book Review

Book –  I’m Praying For You: 40 Days of Praying the Bible for Someone Who is Suffering

Author –  Nancy Guthrie

I’m Praying For You, by Nancy Guthrie, guides the reader into the practice of scripture based intercessory prayer. This book is super practical and designed to be used by anyone regardless of prayer experience.
