Author announces release of new book utilizing Book of Proverbs
SAINT CLOUD, Fla. – With the goal to inspire Christians to pray daily in the hope of impacting human behaviors and affairs, “Prophetic Prayers: Daily Prayer Guide Based on the Book of Proverbs” (published by WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson & Zondervan) presents a practical view on prayer, encouraging believers to use their prayers as a channel for God’s intervention in their life and in the lives of other individuals, families and authorities according to what God’s Word reveals.
“I had read in a Billy Graham book about his custom of reading and meditating one chapter a day of the Book of Proverbs,” author Julio Severo explains. “In that time, 27 years ago, I used to pray several hours a day, and by reading and meditating one chapter of Proverbs, I began to ‘prophesize’ (declare in prayer) some of its verses over people and situations, with marvelous results.”
Using the instruction found in the Book of Proverbs, “Prophetic Prayers” teaches readers how to use their prayers to impact human behaviors and affairs. At its core, it is a Proverbs-based handbook.
An excerpt from “Prophetic Prayers”:
Proverbs inspires us to prophesy God’s specific will for specific situations. It also inspires us to make creative prayers to help foster righteousness and weaken wickedness in this world. When we prophesy Proverbs for many situations, God’s righteousness will break forth in individuals, moving them to know and to live God’s will.
