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)
Max Lucado’s collection of Pocket Prayers offers simple prayers to people in differing circumstances to guide, encourage, and inspire their prayer lives. Each book of the six nearly-pocket-sized books targets a specific audience - moms, dads, friends, etc. - with a specific purpose - bringing joy and serenity, peace and renewal, faith and courage, etc. - and forty relevant prayers. Overall, Pocket Prayers is an incredibly beneficial collection of short but heartfelt and thought-provoking prayers. I highly recommend them.
With days such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Best Friend Day quickly approaching, these books make excellent gifts - I know I will be sending them out to various friends and family members.
- Pocket Prayers for Teachers: 40 Simple Prayers That Bring Peace and Renewal will soon be headed to my mother, a sixth-grade math teacher, just in time for National Teacher Appreciation Week (the first week of May). With the end of the school year quickly approaching, I imagine some peace and renewal will be quite needed.
- Pocket Prayers for Military Life: 40 Simple Prayers That Bring Faith and Courage will soon be headed to my brother, a member of the U.S. Army, and his wife. They will be relocating to a new state in a couple months, and with all the changes they will be facing, any amount of faith and courage should be helpful.
