Book Review: If My People

This is an important election year for our nation. With many hoping for the next President to restore this country, it is important for us to be mindful that our true and only hope are found in God. With that in mind, If My People: A Prayer Guide for Our Nation by Jack Countryman is a perfect tool for believers and church to utilize. This is a 40-day prayer guide with a brief reflection, a Scripture reading and prayer to read for each day, focusing on a different aspect of our nation. Another feature are small excerpts from Presidents and key leaders of America discussing the importance of God for the success of our democracy. There are also small recountings of the Great Awakenings we have seen in our national history.

There are a variety of prayer guides for our country and most seem to involve some 40-day pattern. It is good for us to be in prayer for our nation, and whatever tool can help us in that work is a benefit in my book. If My People is an excellent, short and inspiring prayer tool for any believer and/or church to utilize in this election year, especially. My only complaint is that it is hard cover. Making it paperback could probably cut the cost in half and make it a more accessible resource.
