Pocket Prayers by Max Lucado - Book Review


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)

My Thoughts:
One of my favorite Christian authors is Max Lucado. Not that I am prejudiced by the fact that he is from Texas ,.. but I really enjoy his down-to-earth style of talking about Jesus, Heaven, praying, and how we should live our lives in this world today. He is a strong Biblical writer and gets his message across in a way that anyone can relate to.
His latest series of book reflect just that - a series of prayer books that any and everyone can enjoy.  These tiny but powerful books feature 40 soothing and soul-changing prayers that would make perfect gifts for that special someone in your life.
I was especially touched to see the one dedicated to the military.  Our sons have a friend who has just deployed to Afghanistan for seven months, and I plan to send him this little book of prayers to let him know we are thinking about him over here while he is over there.
I highly recommend these charming books for all the upcoming gift-giving days!

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.
