The Valley of Vision

Daddy gave each of us girls a copy of this wonderful book for Christmas. It is amazing! It's a collection of prayers and devotions by puritan writers including John Bunyan. It is so beautiful - these prayers are God-centered, well written, and constantly point the reader to the cross. It is full of prayers that a) say just what I need to hear, b) express just what I'd like to pray, but can't think of the right words, and c) remind me of my need and Christ's sufficiency. Also, they are relatively short (just a small page or two each), so you can read them in small sections throughout the day if you are busy.

Not to mention the face that the gold-lettered black leather cover is just plain elegant. But even if if had an ugly cover, if would still be a treasure!
