Amish Prayers by Beverly Lewis
The Amish as well as other Anabaptist groups have used the same book of prayers for centuries. Now for the first time a selection of these prayers is readily available in English. This exclusive authentic translation from the original German--with an introduction by Beverly Lewis--will give readers insights into the spiritual foundations of the Plain people. Each prayer is paired with a Scripture passage to draw readers closer to God. This hardcover illustrated gift book is perfect for old and new fans of Amish fiction alike.
I really like this Devotional Book. There is a Table of Contents in the beginning leading you to what you may need that day. Included are several prayers [with sweet Amish drawings] along with the appropriate scripture that applies.
Enjoyed the Foreword by Beverly Lewis the author. She explains the German prayer book Die Ernsthafte Christenpflicht has been with the Amish since the first printing in 1708. The written prayers are regarded as a precious possession by both the Amish and the Mennonite. The book includes translated prayers from the original German book. How fortunate we are to be able to enjoy these.
Thank you Beverly Lewis for sharing this with us!
