Wisdom has never been needed more greatly than today.

26055362In his book, Proverbs Prayers, John Mason takes us through the book of Proverbs, one chapter a day, and shows us how to pray and apply these verses to our lives.

He opens up the wisdom and insights found in each verse, bringing wisdom alive in both deeply spiritual and practical application.

He also includes “Proverbs Principles” on topics and struggles we encounter each day. He covers topics such as: achievement, anger, character, compassion, friendship, gossip, laziness, motivation, persistence, and vision.

The author has included a wide variety of quotes which bring further understanding and insight into wisdom:

  • “Never sell your principles for popularity or you’ll find yourself bankrupt in the worst way.”
  • “Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” (Frank Outlaw)
  • “You can always measure a person by the amount of opposition it takes to discourage him. When the water starts to rise, you can too.”
  • “As you go through life, you’re going to have many opportunities to keep your mouth shut. Take advantage of all of them.” (West Virgina Gazette)
  • “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.” (John Wooden)

I found this book to offer a fresh approach to wisdom. This book makes a perfect devotional as there are thirty one chapters, which can be easily read and prayed each month throughout the year.
