Max Lucado’s Pocket Prayers Feature Story

I chose to gift Max Lucado’s Pocket Prayers for Friends to my amazing cousin, Heather for her upcoming birthday. Heather and I grew up together as children and she lived next door to me and we went to church together. We would constantly hang out and play games, listen to music, jump on the trampoline, play in our tree houses, sing, and have adventures. When she got married, we have spent less time together and life has gotten busy for the both of us. This book will greatly benefit her because she has stopped attending church when she got married. I believe her love of God is still there somewhere but she has just forgotten. One of my favorite days was day 11. This day discussed verse Psalm 55:14 and it stated, “We took sweet counsel together, and walked to the house of God in the throng”. This day’s prayer was about worshiping God in church and desperately longing to learn more about Him and His ways. It also talked about having great Christian’s friends and this is something I’m praying and hoping for her and her husband. 

“I received a review copy of Pocket Prayers Series from Litfuse for this review.”

About the book:

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)

Key dates to keep in mind (these little books would make great gifts):
  • Mother's Day---May 8
  • Memorial Day---May 30
  • Father's Day---June 19
  • Teachers---first week of May is National Teacher Appreciation Week, first Tuesday May 3 is NTA day
  • Graduation---month of May
  • Friends---June 8 is Best Friend Day - International Day of Friendship is July 30
