My Review...

This vintage book is the testimony of Rosalind Goforth. Along with her husband, Jonathan, as missionaries to China in the late 1800s to early 1900s, their lives were often in peril, or at least in strange or unreliable predicaments. God was Rosalind's constant companion, through her faithful prayers.

"...the wonder is not that God can answer prayer, but that he does, when we so imperfectly meet the conditions clearly laid down in his Word."

Set up similarly to a diary, this book chronicles instances of God's own touch and healing power in the Goforth's ministry. Many times throughout the years, Rosalind found that it was only when she fully trusted and relied on God's goodness that the unimaginable feat that they so badly needed would come to pass.

"The slogan of this glorious life in Christ is just 'Let go and let God'."

I personally think this profound little book packs a punch and shares a big message. It reminds all Christians of the glory and power God has in our lives, if we let Him.

How I Know God Answers Prayer is a shining jewel in the midst of other books.

  1. I'm reading with Carrie's book club too. Only about halfway through, but it's an amazing book.

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Mrs. Goforth is one of my favorite missionary authors - I highly recommend her book Climbing.

  3. I should give this book a look! Sounds interesting - I haven't checked out Project Gutenburg in a while :P
