Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. Aug 24, Nancy DeValve rated it liked it Shelves: bible , bible-studies , prayer. I would like to go through this book again at a time when I'm actually studying these books of the Bible. I discovered that there are similar books for almost all of the Old Testament prophets. The prayers are a little hard to read as they are written in an old-fashioned style.
Praying through the Prophets: Jonah, Micah & Nahum
I found it helpful to read them changing the words in my head. It was also helpful with some of them to actually rewrite the prayer These are prayers written by John Calvin, based on passages from Jonah, Micah, and Nahum. It was also helpful with some of them to actually rewrite the prayer in more modern language. Aug 05, Jeanie rated it it was amazing Shelves: kindle. Prayer is more for us than for the Lord. With prayer we have communion with an Almighty God. We are living in the days of these minor prophets and to know and experience the steadfastness of their hearts is a great encouragement.
You come away knowing the Lord in spirit and truth. Nov 28, MJ Hancock rated it really liked it.
Benefited from praying through these Scripture-based prayers of Calvin compiled from his commentaries. Nov 16, Rene rated it really liked it Shelves: cristianos. Very reflexively view of the three books, much better if the book are read in parallel to the verses described. It really motivates to keep praying. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. About John Calvin.
John Calvin. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism. Originally trained as a humanist lawyer, he broke from the Roman Catholic Church around After religious tensions provoked a violent uprising against Protestants in France, Calvin fled to Basel, Switzerland, where in he published the first edition of his seminal work Institutes of the Christian Religion.
In that year, Calvin was invited by William Farel to help reform the church in Geneva.
The city council resisted the implementation of Calvin and Farel's ideas, and both men were expelled. At the invitation of Martin Bucer, Calvin proceeded to Strasbourg, where he became the minister of a church of French refugees.

He continued to support the reform movement in Geneva, and was eventually invited back to lead its church. Following his return, he introduced new forms of church government and liturgy. Following an influx of supportive refugees and new elections to the city council, Calvin's opponents were forced out. Calvin spent his final years promoting the Reformation both in Geneva and throughout Europe. Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer.
He also exchanged cordial and supportive letters with many reformers including Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger. In addition to the Institutes, he wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible as well as theological treatises and confessional documents, and he regularly gave sermons throughout the week in Geneva.
Calvin was influenced by the Augustinian tradition, which led him to expound the doctrine of predestination and the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation. Calvin's writing and preaching provided the seeds for the branch of theology that bears his name. The Presbyterian and other Reformed churches, which look to Calvin as a chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world.
Calvin's thought exerted considerable influence over major religious figures and entire religious movements, such as Puritanism, and some have argued that his ideas have contributed to the rise of capitalism, individualism, and representative democracy in the West.
