Pocket Prayers (Review)
This review is for the set of books by Max Lucado called "Pocket Prayers". This set includes a pocket-sized book geared toward graduates, dads, teachers, military personnel, moms, and friends. I am a huge fan of Max Lucado, so I was excited to read these books. Each book is written by Max Lucado along with another author. Each book begins with an introduction by Lucado, and then the book goes right into the prayers. This is a collection of 40 prayers that go with scripture that are geared toward the specific people named on the cover of the book. For example, graduates are given prayers of hope and direction, while military personnel are given prayers of faith and courage. The books are not only small enough to easily fit in a Bible case or bookbag, but the prayers are pocket-size as well. You can easily read one of these in just a couple of minutes - enough time to slow your mind down and refocus your mind on what is really important.
I have a friend whose husband is military and they are moving to another state in a couple of months. Since they have lived here over the past couple of years, her husband has been gone more months than he has been home and she has been diligent about being there for their six kids. She is an awesome mom, but I know her husband could use this book of prayers for encouragement when he is gone from his family!
I think this is an awesome series of books and I love that they are great gifts for friends and family. I highly recommend them!
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the books in exchange for my honest review.
