Book Review: 365 Pocket Morning Prayers

Hey ya’ll! It’s book review time! You may remember a month back when I received 2 books from Tyndale House Publishing for my reviews. I am excited to share with you the first of two reviews today!

365 Pocket Morning Prayers: Strength & Joy to Begin Each Day, by David R. Veerman & The Barton-Veerman Co, was released in September 2016. It provides a prayer for each day of the year, along with a scripture. Weekend days have a shorter prayer.

First off, I really love the smooth, leather binding. Who doesn’t love the smell of leather? The size of the book is perfect for the nightstand as well as carrying it in your purse for the morning commute or the afternoon break. I am currently on Day 53, and I tend to start my mornings with it. Whenever you decide to read it, it takes about five minutes to read and pray through, and each day comes with a scripture to focus on for that day. This is a great resource for mornings when you don’t have much time, but it shouldn’t be used to replace quiet time altogether. I definitely need days with deeper study of the scriptures.

The topical index has several pages if you don’t want to read through each day chronologically.

A great feature of 365 Pocket Morning Prayers is that you can choose to read the posts in order, or you can do a topical search in the index to go straight to a prayer that you need in that moment. The topical index is extensive so it has your prayer needs covered. Sometimes the prayers are very specific, and something may not fully resonate with me, but I love starting my morning with the truth of God’s word. I definitely recommend this book to everyone who is looking for something to spark their quiet time and lead to deeper conversation with the Lord.

I look forward to sharing with you about the second book I reviewed – Gratitude: A Prayer & Praise Coloring Journal.

About stacynjeffries

Life is a collection of our stories, a collection of moments. I love to tell stories! I think that through storytelling, we get to share glimpses of our lives with each other, to see the world in the other person’s eyes. Through the laughter and the tears our stories offer encouragement and hope to others. This space was created so that I could share my stories of healing, redemption, living fully alive, and finding my voice again. I hope my words encourage you wherever you are on the path. I hope you laugh. I hope you cry. I hope you feel and come alive again. I hope you find your own path to redemption and healing. I hope you find your own voice for telling your stories and sharing your heart with the world. God is with you. God is for you. God sees you and He hears your prayers, and He bends down to listen.
