Pocket Prayers by Max Lucado

This review is for six books in the Pocket Prayers series.

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)

  Each book is hardcover, measuring 5 1/2" by 5 1/2". Each book has 40 prayers, all geared towards the specific audience named on the front. Each prayer is preceded by a relevant Bible verse and the prayers are split up into around 6 categories such as: prayers for grace and strength, prayers for healing and safety, prayers for fatherhood and joy, etc.

 The prayers are well-written, and though short they say a lot. These would make great gifts for all occasions. They are attractively packaged, and have sound and good prayers in to use with devotions or any time.

  This book review is unique in that it is for 6 books, but it is also unique in another way: I am supposed to give away all 6 books to individuals of the intended audience of each one, and that is something I will be doing in the next couple of weeks.
