Praying The Attributes Of God (Paperback)Ann Spangler
Many people feel both drawn to God and afraid of him. How can they feel close to a perfect God whom their flawed self is incapable of pleasing?
Fortunately, God has revealed truths about himself in Scripture that can untangle our confusion. In this daily guide to studying and praying according to the attributes of God, Ann Spangler resurrects old-fashioned words like holiness, omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence. Far from boring us, these words, when excavated for their biblical meaning, paint a thrilling vision of God that can help us experience spiritual growth in a deeper way. They can also prevent us from making the colossal mistake of concluding God is too weak, distant, or uncaring to help us when we need him.
In the tradition of her bestselling books Praying the Names of God and Women of the Bible, this new daily devotional focuses on one particular attribute each week.
Praying the Attributes of God will help you see that God is far bigger and far better than you could ever hope or suspect.

And what about all the money spent downloading music or the time wasted listening to a bunch of disagreeable sounds strung together? Wouldn’t it all seem rather bizarre?
That was Austin Chapman’s perspective for nearly twenty-three years. Born deaf, Austin was at peace with his situation. “All music,” he explains, “sounded like trash through my hearing
aids.” But that changed the day he tried on a new pair capable of distributing higher frequencies with greater clarity.
Suddenly the young filmmaker heard sounds he didn’t even know existed—the scraping of his shoe on carpet, the clicking of a computer keyboard, the whir of a fan. That night, friends
