Book Review - Pocket Prayers by Max Lucado


Pocket Prayers (with various authors; Thomas Nelson, March 2016)

Bestselling author Max Lucado has teamed up with six authors to write the Pocket Prayers series for those in need of peace, renewal, rest, faith, hope, joy, direction, serenity, and courage.

Short, simple prayers are very effective, which is why each book in the series contains forty guided prayers and complementary scriptures for any situation, including for:

-Moms (written with daughter Andrea Lucado)
-Grads (written with daughter Andrea Lucado)
-Dads (written with Mark Mynheir)
-Military Life (written with Mark Mynheir)
-Teachers (written with blogger Jennifer Hale)
-Friends (written with Betsy St. Amant)


More than 120 million readers have found inspiration and encouragement in the writings of Max Lucado. He lives with his wife, Denalyn, and their mischievous mutt, Andy, in San Antonio, Texas, where he serves the people of Oak Hills Church.

These little books are so wonderful! I gained so much comfort from them and they were great for knowing how to prayer over situations and people when you're needing guidance. 
I love that there is a prayer for almost every situation you can think of! Sometimes in the midst of something, we aren't sure what to pray but these little books will guide you and help you to pray a prayer that gets to the heart of the matter. 
I also love how these books will encourage you to do what really matters and that is to pray. The books have 40 prayers that are simple but get to the heart of the situation. They are just perfect little prayers of encouragement. 
These books would be great for gifts and here's some upcoming holidays that these books would make great gifts for:  
  • Teacher Appreciation Day - May 3, 2016
  • Mother's Day - May 8, 2016
  • Memorial Day - May 30, 2016
  • Father's Day - June 19, 2016
  • Graduation Season - April/May/June 
My son will be graduating this year so I am giving him the Graduation book. I know it is going to encourage him as he moves from being a student to a man in the working world. I will also be giving the Dad's book to my husband for Father's day. The others I will be giving to friends that need the encouragement of prayer in their lives.

I love these books! They are the perfect little gift for someone special or as a gift to yourself. I loved each and every prayer in these little books and I think you will, too!
