Called to Pray: Astounding Stories of Answered Prayer by Linda Evans Shepherd is a collection of stories about different people’s prayers at key moments in their lives and how these prayers impacted them. This “Chicken Soup” type book showcases a wide variety of stories about both adults and children, ranging from minor conflicts to crucial life decisions. One of my favorite parts was about a woman named Karen Porter, whose prayers led her down a new life path; the book definitely shows the transformative and healing power of prayer. After each story, Shepherd includes a short prayer that is relevant to that passage. This unique book is an interesting read, as it weaves together stories about vastly different individuals with the common theme of prayer.
