Ask Him to prepare your heart so that you can be ready to face any challenge that comes your way. 365 Pocket Morning Prayers can guide this time of life-changing conversation and help you express your needs and concerns to God. Don't worry about what the day will bring. Instead, release your troubles and concerns into God's care by reading and meditating on the prayers featured in 365 Pocket Morning Prayers. Begin your day in joyful anticipation, trusting that God is in control of your life and wants only the best for you.
This book contains a wide range of topics and provides encouragement for them. There are not dates given, but day numbers.
The book is a small, cute book. It would be easy to keep in one's car, desk, or purse if they would like or set out on a coffee stand. The book has a small ribbon to mark one's place which is similar to many bibles on the market.
The book uses the NLT translation which is my personal favorite and I appreciate its reader- friendly nature.
I think that the index in the book is useful for finding a specific passage and am very glad that the author/editors included it.
To me, the book could me more focused. Some of the passages are about making important decisions, about marriage, and fear. Its unlikely that a person would be able to apply each of these to their lives everyday.
Because of this, I dont think a person should expect to read the book through cover to cover. You might benefit from encouragement after a bad day, but while you will find it in the book, you probably wont need that page on the correlating day of the year.
I could also say that prescripted prayers are not enough to keep one's spiritual life healthy and these prayers should be treated as a starting point, an appetizer if you will, and not the main dish.
To me, the target audience seems to be those who have grown up with prewritten prayers. I have never had a book of prayers before and it is not something that I see myself using on a regular basis.
I personally wouldnt pay $10 for it but there are a few good pages I have found.
If you would like, you can order a copy from Amazon here.
