About the Book

This collection presents forty-five poems in classic verse, including the major prayers in the Bible, serving as models of prayer for Christians and others in today’s world. These prayers were addressed to God in times of severe personal trial, in victory and defeat, in uncertainty and thankfulness. The historical context of each prayer is included in an introductory paragraph for each prayer. The prayers express virtually all the needs of people today along with praise to God for his many benefits.

About the Author

Dr. James Vasquez has been a Christian for more than fifty years, and over those years he has been much engaged in a prayer life, both in his private life and in small and larger groups. He has studied prayers intensely in the Scriptures and has recently published, in verse, the entire book of Psalms, which contains numerous prayers. He is a seminary graduate (Fuller Theological Seminary) and an ordained minister; as such he has preached and taught on prayer for some years.

Since his retirement from the University of Washington, he has felt an even deeper call to a prayer life by God. This has manifested itself in greater, more earnest prayer for family, for friends in and out of the church, and for God’s leading of our national leaders. This calling has been at the heart of his work in compiling the prayer poems of this book.

James currently lives in Spokane, Washington, with his wife and lives close to two of his grown children and their families. He is an active member of a local church where he has taught and presented through public readings his published poetry.
