Pocket Prayers | Max Lucado

 


Today I am reviewing Max Lucado’s Pocket Prayers.

Max Lucado has written six pocket-size books, each with 40 simple prayers that bring hope and direction. Max writes with humor, compassion, and respect.

He speaks of dozing off, his thoughts scattering this way and that. He says he thinks of a thousand things he needs to do, but forgets the one thing he’s trying to do — pray.

He speaks of the Bible, the disciples and how they asked Jesus to teach them to pray.

Then he, with the help of another author, has chosen 40 Bible passages, and written out 40 specific prayers — for moms, dads, grads, teachers, friends, graduates, and for someone who is serving, or has served, in the military.

I heartily recommend these pocket prayer books . . . pick up one or more today, for yourself, for a parent, a friend, or as a gift.

Happy Reading!

 

Here is a brief synopsis:
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)

Moms — No one knows how quickly the chaos of daily life can become overwhelming more than moms. We lean on them for everything from hurt feelings to missing homework to broken bones. So, where can moms turn for peace and rest in the midst of mayhem? Bestselling author Max Lucado points to the Source of all hope and strength in Pocket Prayers for Moms, which contains forty scriptures and guided prayers written especially for all moms.

Grads — Graduation is one of life s most exciting milestones. It can also be a source of uncertainty and anxiety. What comes after graduation day? More education? A career? Starting a family? Often this time in life can bring more questions than answers, but Max Lucado offers hope and direction by pointing to the Answer to all of life s question. Pocket Prayers for Graduates includes forty scriptures and guided prayers written especially for those considering their futures post-graduation.

DadsDads wear many hats. From protector to playmate, confidante to counselor. No matter the role, families rely on dads to lead with strength and faith. And in Pocket Prayers for Dads, Max Lucado offers forty scriptures and guided prayers that will help dads do just that.

Military LifeDaily life for those in the military and their loved ones at home can be filled with rapid change, fear, and uncertainty. For those bravely sacrificing for our country, bestselling author, Max Lucado, offers words of hope, pointing them to the Source of faith and courage. Pocket Prayers for the Military contains forty scriptures and guided prayers that will help readers face the unique challenges of military life with courage and faith.

TeachersAll the way from coloring inside the lines to calculus, teachers have given us the tools to thrive. Where would we be without them? But a teacher s job is often a difficult one. Sometimes anxiety and exhaustion become the norm. For those in need of a little peace and renewal, Max Lucado points to the Teacher who offered just that. Pocket Prayers for Teachers contains forty scriptures and guided prayers written especially for those special people, who encourage and inspire our students.

FriendsSome friends are closer than family. They weave their way into our lives, there to celebrate the highs and comfort us through the lows. And for those special friends, Max Lucado offers forty scriptures and guided prayers that bring joy and serenity in Pocket Prayers for Friends.
God Bless You!
