Imagine having to clean out a house and finding letters to God from another person. Just think of what it would be like to have an inner look into a person’s life through the medium of the written word.
In the Prayer Box, Lisa Wingate takes the reader on a journey of life from the perspective of seeing it through another’s eyes. By reading the letters the reader is brought into a life of introspection and thought. The realization that life is not always simple and reading about another’s journey through similar circumstances gives powerful encouragement to keep going, no matter the difficulty.
I resonate with this because my dad is one who writes a devotional for his sons and I can see how he displays part of who is he, what he has experienced, and how we can learn from it.
While I am not a lover of fiction, this book is a great way to bridge the theological and philosophical questions one might have while experiencing the life God has given. In that, it is a great read.
