The Pray-ers Book Review Schoolhouse Review Crew


As a part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I was given the chance to review The Pray-ers/ Book 1 Troubles  by Mark S. Mirza from CTM Publishing Atlanta . This is not a book I would typically read at all. The Pray-ers/ Book 1 is a book that will show a person how they can pray more intensely. It also provides fictional storylines to follow to see it in action.

About The Pray-ers/ Book 1 Troubles

Check out this Christian fiction book written by Christian author, Mark Mirza, in this book review of The Pray-ers Book 1.

The Pray-ers Book 1 is a Christian fiction book that follows the lives of three different pray warriors. Mirza chooses to create three different characters from different time periods. Each one of these characters is dealing with keeping their faith while helping others to continue to walk the Christianity lifestyle through hardships. The author gives a very detailed description of each of the characters’ storyline in this book.

My Review

I choose to be the one to read this book for the purpose of this book review. I had to read this book in spades because it was extremely hard for me to read. Mirza PURPOSELY had many of the main characters’ names NOT capitalized because they were demons within the book. He also did a lot of jumping around from one character to the next. My dyslexia brain had a heck of a time trying to read this book. I honestly had a hard time following each of the stories. If I had picked up this book to read for pleasure, it would have quickly ended up in a pile of books that didn’t interest me.

Luckily for this author, I promised to finish it to the end in order to be able to give an honest review. Once I got through the grueling introduction section, which was 1/3 of the book almost, I finally was beginning to be able to keep the pieces of the storyline together and settle in and savor reading the book.

If the author had given an introduction for each of the character’s individual stories broken down along with proper writing edict I feel I would have eagerly read this book from beginning to end. The way my mind processes reading made me feel like I was plowing a field by hand just to get to see the crop fully grown.

I can’t think of another book that covers this type of scenario quite the same way. However, I did expect it to remind me some of War Room because it was about prayer warriors too.

If you are the type of reader who can handle basic grammar issues and bouncing from topic to topic and still maintain what the storyline is about, then you will be able to read this book with ease. Once you get through the first half of the book it does get better. In my mind, it kind of gives off a Christian historical fiction feeling because I do believe in the power of prayer and people having to deal with the devil taunting us at every turn. If you’re a believer of God and enjoy reading historical fiction, then this may be a book that you want to add to your to-read list.

Crew Disclaimer



    • It does that a lot at the beginning of the book (which is well over 100 pages.) I’m glad that I gave you this warning since you feel the same way about that kind of writing as I do.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon.

  1. Good job on this review! I read it too, and if it makes you feel any better, I’m not dyslexic and read extremely avidly, and I had a hard time getting through this one for the exact same reasons you mentioned! I said in my review on Desperate Homeschoolers that I felt the editing really let down what could have been a much better book.

    Thanks for linking up this week at Booknificent Thursday on! Great to have you!
