An Insider's Guide to Praying for the World {Review}

Brian C Stiller's book is filled with insider information about how to pray for countries all over the world.  From Sri Lanka to Kenya, travel the world through Stiller's experiences, find yourself deeply moved by personal stories, and activated to a fuller prayer life for nations all across the globe.

What I liked about the book:
1. Short chapters
2. Story telling style
3. Specific prayer request for each country
4. Variety of countries covered

What I didn't like about the book:
1. Lack of maps/illustrations
2. Story telling misses the broader feel of the country

Overall, I really loved the layout of this book.  Each chapter includes a short story illustrating a need for that particular country, statistics about the country, applicable Scripture, and sample prayer.  Many of the countries listed in this book don't get media time and the issues happening there are hidden.  This guide provides a wonderful look into places I may never know about and gives me specific action steps for prayer.  I would absolutely recommend this book for anyone looking for more direction in their prayers or just looking for a way to pray for the world.
