    5. I generally do not favor prayer compilations, as we tend to consider them more than the Bible - a practice that I disagree with, as I believe our prayer should be a personal communication with our Creator. However, I Mrs. Lewis's novels, which depict the Amish people with straightforwardness and a caring heart that reflects their deep communion with God. This sparked my curiosity about this book, knowing that the compilation would be made by someone knowledgeable in the matter, and despite thatN [...]

    6. In the pages of this book the very heart of the Amish community is lain open for the world to see. It is in these prayers that were originally printed as Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht in 1708 that we are invited into a deeper understanding of the faith that these people hold so dear. In prayer we each express those convictions of our faith that we hold close, those things that drive and influence us. It is in prayers that communities, families and churches are drawn together into a deeper more [...]

They are organized into topical chapters such as Prayers for a New Day, Prayers for Comfort, and Prayers for Purity of Heart. Lewis wrote an introduction for the book and paired each prayer with Scripture.There is a reason that these prayers have been around so long. They are Biblical, thought provoking, and honoring of God. The reader is left with plenty to think ab [...]

    10. Admitedly I read this because I loved the irony of reading a e-book version of an Amish Prayer book. But these prayers are beautiful, theologically rich and self reflective. They come from the German prayerbook Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht which is used by the Amish and other Anabaptists. The prayers are arranged here, topically as prayers for: a New Day, Divine Guidance, Gratitude, Repentance, Comfort, Praise, Strength, Purity of Heart, Unity, Humility, Submission and the Evening.As the inter [...]

    11. As the title says, this is a book of Amish Prayers. I found it to be a great devotional-type book. I'm not one who memorizes or recites prayers. I think they should come from the heart. I like reading them, though, because they give me ideas about things that I should be praying about, but haven't thought about.Although I love reading about the Amish, I don't share most of their beliefs. I do admire their simplicity and their desire to please the Lord. I think that desire shines throughout this [...]

    12. I thought this was a great short read. Beverly Lewis's books are usually good, and this one is no exception. I was hoping for a little more amish stories in it, not just prayers and bible verses. However, it was still a very inspirational book. I didn't really have a favorite prayer or bible verse in Amish Prayers. I liked all of the book equally. It made a great Christmas gift for my mom, who absolutely loved it. It will definitely also make a great gift for anyone who likes Christian or Amish [...]

    13. I found the reading of these simple prayers and the accompanying scriptures to bring peace and a better appreciation of a daily walk with God through prayer. These prayers were said to originate with the first printing of the Anabaptists German prayer book in 1708. They are simple, yet powerful. They speak of an intimate relationship with the Trinity and a deep understanding of the Christian's purpose on earth and in Heaven. These prayers hark back to a simpler time when man knew he depended on [...]

    14. Amish Prayers is a book of common prayers used by the Amish. They are heartfelt, prayers and a nice guide to use when you don't know exactly what to pray. They tend to be on the formal side but that does not take away from the content! Overall I gained much from the forthrightness and humbleness (is that a word?) of these prayers. This is a book I will keep on my phone/kindle for reference. This was a free download from Barnes and Noble, part of my personal collection.Love and Blessings Always, [...]

    15. This little book is full of prayers that have been prayed by Amish and Mennonite believers for hundreds of years. The prayers came from an old German book written in the 1700's entitled "Prayer Book for Earnest Christians: A Spiritually Rich Anabaptist Resource". This is a book every Christian would benefit from reading.

    16. English translations of a selection of prayers from "Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht", and early eighteenth century prayer book that has been used by the Amish and Mennonites for generations. It was a great, short read. It's a very inspirational book. Would make a great gift for someone.

    17. This book was a book of prayers from the Amish community. It was a good reminder of all the things we should pray for -- repentance, gratitude, our leaders, grace, humility, strength, etc. I found it very uplifting.

    18. This book is beautiful in every way. It is not just the wonderful prayers to read everyday over and over again, but the size of the book is handy to have by your bedside and the illustrations are simple and meaningful. This is a book you will treasure and keep forever.

    19. This was a very comforting and inspiring book. The prayers in this book were uplifting and helpful. I loved how every prayer ended with a scripture verse, and the chapter illustrations were just lovely.

    20. For me, this was a nice, enjoyable evening read. Prayers of gratitude, prayers of devotion, prayers for contemplation. Nothing overly unique, but a nice, bedtime read.

    21. Help us forget all our hearts' temporal and earthly concerns and only strive earnestly for that which is eternal and of you.
