The prayers of the people in Scripture contain everything from powerful stories of deliverance and explosions of heartfelt praise to desperate cries for mercy and incisive observations about the injustices of life. In the Psalms alone we find both complaints and outbursts of amazement along with whispered pleas that throb with grief and pain. Why then do our prayers today often seem so bland in comparison? What would happen if we, too, started praying honest prayers, raw with the realities of life, tender with the realization of grace? In A Heart Exposed, Steven James presents a collection of image-rich prayers that do just that--some etched out of the granite of suffering, others polished by the beauty of praise. All reflect a heart laid bare before God and invite readers to do the same.
