“An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World,” by Brian C. Stiller

I recently had the chance to read An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World, by Brian C. Stiller. This nonfiction book was published on January 19, 2016, by Bethany House.

About this book (from the back cover):

Nothing fuels prayer like seeing a need with your own eyes. Journey with Brian Stiller as he gathers firsthand information and prayer requests direct from Christians around the world. Filled with stories of faith and risk, tragedy and hope, this book will help you intercede with greater focus and understanding.

Learn about other lands–both familiar ones, such as China and Kenya, and ones you may know very little about, like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Be inspired by the innovative and often difficult mission work being done in many places. But more important, take part in God’s work by praying for the real needs of our brothers and sisters around the world.

Final Verdict:

This has been such a great resource for my family during our morning devotional times! We have been working through a country a week, reading the selection and the finding the country on a map. Since my girls are younger, I selectively edit some of the harsher realities as I read aloud, but we will be bringing this book out again when they are older and are ready to pray for some of the more violent, sad things happening in each of the countries Stiller lists. I have also incorporated it into my morning devotional time, so that I can read ahead and pray for each country myself. Highly recommended to give you a global perspective on the need for prayer.

 If you’d like to check out An Insider’s Guide to Praying for the World it is currently on sale for $10.69 for the Kindle version. (Regularly $14.99.) If you prefer a paperback copy, it’s currently on sale for $11.25. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.
