The beloved Bible teacher and daughter of Billy Graham shares a rich treasury of her personal prayers to guide you into deeper, more intimate daily conversations with God. Why is it that as soon as we bow our heads to pray, we start thinking of other things we need to do? How do we make time to pray in the middle of our busy lives?

Walking in the Light of His Presence is a compilation of poetry and short stories that chronicle my journey of faith from childhood in a large family, through tears and laughter, heartbreak and sorrow, and into a marvelous relationship with Jesus, my Savior, and with God, my heavenly Father. This relationship was made possible by an increased emphasis on reading God's Word, by attending Bible studies, by faithful church attendance, and by spending more time in prayer. During this time of increased devotion, I learned more about God and His love for me and experienced supernatural blessings from Him. I also realized that God had given me the ability to write poetry and short stories as a therapeutic gift. This outlet of creativity became my "voice" because I had a speech impediment and was emotionally paralyzed with fear at the thought of public speaking. Along with the love, prayers, and concern of Christian friends and a minister, God healed me of this fear and speech impediment. For fifty years, I endured a lot of humiliation and embarrassing moments with this problem, and I would get very depressed at times dealing with this. I was only eight years old when I asked my first prayer request to God asking Him to remove this problem. Even as a young girl, I felt that God was the only hope I had. I kept praying, and God kept sending people into my life to help me. I started attending a Bible study led by Nancy Andrews, and my faith started growing, and I started learning the truth of how God sees things and how much He loves us by sending His Son, Jesus, into this hurting world to help all of us. It wasn't until years later that I decided to dig deep into the Word of God, the Bible, daily and believe what the power of God can do. I had to renew my mind and put my trust in the Lord, Jesus Christ, for the victory of healing to take place. He is the great light, the truth, who is God Himself. I would have never made it without Him! I am so thankful that I am able to share my life story and my journey of faith with you.

Beloved missionary, Sarah Young, shares another deeply spiritual devotional to help readers grow in grace, hear from God, and walk with Jesus TodayTM. Her first book, the acclaimed bestseller, Jesus Calling, was born after years of writing in her prayer journal and feeling led to write down what she believed God was telling her. Gradually, her prayer journal turned from a monologue to a dialogue. Knowing that her writings were not inspired as Scripture is, this process still helped her grow closer in her walk with God. In Jesus TodayTM, readers will be renewed with a deeper sense of hope as Sarah shares this about her spiritual journey in writing the book: "When I began writing Jesus Today, I was deeply discouraged by the failure of many months of intensive medical treatment to improve my health. However, the longer I worked on the book-focusing on finding hope in Jesus-the more hopeful and encouraged I became."
