Great Gift Books by Max Lucado {Pocket Prayers}

My Thoughts on Pocket Prayers by Max Lucado:

The various Pocket Prayers are small, 40 day prayer books specifically geared to one of the following target audiences: moms, dads, teachers, friends, teachers, and those in military. I kept the mom one for myself, and am in the process of giving the other ones as gifts.

The books begins with basic information about prayer, and is written in a way that is great for the Believer, the Seeker, or someone who hasn't thought much about a personal relationship with Christ, but is open to understanding more about prayer (or simply will enjoy an 'inspirational' book). After the informative section comes the 40 days of prayer, each of which has a verse of the day and a short prayer that is personal & intimate. Believers will find themselves renewed and encouraged, and Seekers/Non Believers have the chance to see the truths of Scripture presented in a clear, tangible, and relatable manner. Both the gift giver and gift receiver could see some great conversations open up thanks to the Pocket Prayer books.

*I received complimentary copies of each book in exchange for my honest review.*
